Blue Sea Cruise's Cancellation / Refund Policy

This is an ocean adventure and conditions may vary. It may not be suitable for some individuals (frail or physically challenged individuals) determination of suitability is at the Captain's discretion.

All tours are subject to vessel operations, weather and/or other unforeseen circumstances. Marine life is a natural occurrence, and there is no guarantee that dolphins, mantas or other marine life will be seen.

Please note that marine life is a natural occurrence, there is no guarantee that dolphins, mantas, whales or other marine life will be seen.  In our experience, we typically do see the dolphins 96% of the time on our day time tours and approximately 50% or less of the time on our evening tours. Manta Rays  are typically seen approximately 75% or more of the time on our late evening tours.

Blue Sea Cruises, Inc. reserves the right to refuse service due to safety and or health conditions.

By purchasing passage with Blue Sea Cruises, Inc. you agree to comply with all applicable Hawaii State and US Federal laws rules and regulations as stipulated under United States Coast Guard regulations CFR Title 46. Should you willfully disobey or fail to comply with commands issued by the Captain or Crew you may be removed from the vessel and will not be entitled to a refund.

Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations made less than 48 hours before cruise time may incur a $20 per person booking fee.
Cancellations within the 48 hours will incur a $20 per person booking fee, charged to the credit card holding the reservation. No refunds are available for cancellations or no shows within 24 hours of the tour departure time and will be charged full tour price. I also understand that wildlife sightings are not guaranted. If wildlife is not seen Blue Sea Cruises may issue a "come again certificate" for free to enjoy another chance to see wildlife. This certificate does not imply a cash refund in part or whole. The come again gift certificate is non-transferable and has no cash value and can only be used by original participants.
