Terms & Conditions

The Fine Print

When you make a booking with us, regardless of the service, you are agreeing to our Terms & Conditions including our Booking Policy, Refund Policy, Disclaimer, Privacy Policy and Security Policy.

 

We understand that circumstances may arise that require you to change or cancel your reservation. This page shows you what to do and under which circumstances we may be able to accommodate any change or cancellation after you book.

 

Booking Policy

You can receive instant confirmation of a booking by using our website to request and pay for a service with a bank card. We also accept requests via phone or email. We cannot guarantee your booking until we have confirmed receipt of your payment. 

 

We appreciate you advising us of any changes as soon as possible. It is your responsibility to answer the questions on our booking form openly and honestly at the time of booking. If you forgot to mention something on your booking form, reach out via any of the contact details at the bottom of this page.

If you need to change your booking, contact us as soon as possible via email to hello@explorein.net. Changes are not accepted within 24 hours of the commencement of the first service. 

We recommend that you and your group members arrange your own insurance with a reputable company prior to participating in any service.

Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We do not work with children under 13. 

If you would like a service in a language other than English, we may be able to assign a bilingual teacher. We currently have bilingual teachers in Spanish, French and Italian. 

If you book a service that involves activities in water, you should know how to swim and feel comfortable in water. Generally, small water crafts such as Paddleboards, Kayaks, etc are weight-rated by individual manufacturers. If you have a concern around whether an experience is suitable for you, please contact us before booking. Any personal property taken onto the water is at your own risk, we do not provide dry bags.

Refund Policy

Please read the service description and consider your plans carefully before you purchase. We do not offer refunds under any circumstances.

If you need to cancel your booking:

Please notify us as soon as possible, via email to hello@explorein.net. If you advise us of a cancelation more than 24 hours before the scheduled start time of your class, we will transfer your booking to the next available class. Cancellations within 24 hours of the scheduled start time are not transferable and you will not be eligible for a refund.

 

No Show:

If you do not show up for your scheduled service without prior notification, you will not be eligible for a refund. There are no refunds for portions of a service a client chooses not to participate in. 

 

Cancellation by Explore In:

We reserve the right to cancel a service due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances that would make the service unsafe or impossible. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel a service for reasons beyond our control, we will notify you as soon as possible and we will either change to a more-suitable service of similar intensity and focus, or offer other service option so you don't miss out on tuning in. If it is not possible for us to offer a service on the schedule you originally booked, we will offer to rebook you when we next become available. Our team on the ground in Bermuda helps us make this final decision. In the unlikely event that no service is run, you will be issued with a voucher for the full amount you paid, which you can use on any of our services. This voucher is valid for 1 month from the date of issue and is transferable.

When completing a booking you are agreeing to our Refund Policy.
