Although we always endeavor to run our tours daily, participants safety is our number one priority and this is why we hold a 100% safety record. Please understand that on rare occasions due to our tours operating in a unique natural environment, time changes and cancellations can happen and we understand they are not always convenient.
Please read below terms and conditions carefully and contact for any further queries.

Refund less the deposit is issued if unable to operate prior to departure due to weather constraints and participants are unable to re book or participate in another activity. If cancellation occurs on arrival to location, deposit will be non refundable to cover transportation and park fee costs.
Wildlife: Due to the natural and non-contrived environment in which tours operate, Epic Ocean Adventures cannot guarantee sighting of dolphins or any other marine life within the Great Sandy National Park. Nevertheless, our success rate is on average 90% for dolphin spotting on tour and due to the remote location of the tour the chances are high.
Epic Ocean Adventures does not conduct any commercial whale watching programs and as such does not guarantee any marine life sightings. However, during the whale migration season our kayaking Eco tours often can come across migrating whales and the chances of experiencing the whales pass by in season are high.
Guarantees: **Guarantee stand up on your first surf lesson or your next surf lesson free – Under conditions that the participant is active in the full length of the surf lesson & fully complies to the instruction & safety procedures from Epic Ocean Adventures instructors. Failure to do so will make this offer void.
Indemnity: Epic Ocean Adventures directors, partners, management and staff shall not be responsible for death or injury to any persons, or loss or damage to any property due to a persons negligence.
