BOAT TRIPS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES WITHOUT ACCOMMODATION
62°NORD reserves the right to change or cancel trips due to unforeseen issues with equipment or crew – as well as bad weather. When weather dictates the originally planned route is not safe, 62° NORD reserves the right to cancel the trip on the advice of the boat operator. Alternatively, the boat operator can change the route to ensure that the participants have an enjoyable and safe experience. Changes to the route due to weather conditions are no grounds for a refund or price reduction.
All participants are responsible for their own physical and psychological condition, bearing in mind the nature of these trips. RIB trips take place at high speed and in challenging water conditions and do involve an element of risk. RIB tours are not recommended for pregnant women and people who have conditions that can worsen when travelling in conditions described above. All participants of RIB tours must sign a waiver clause stating their participation is at their own risk and responsibility.
Participants must always abide by the instructions given by the boat operator; the operator has authority on the boat that he/she leads. The operator has the authority to deny any person’s participation from the tour if they consider there to be a safety risk – this can be related to health, physical condition, being under the influence of alcohol or drugs or if they act in a way which is a nuisance to other participants.
Use of and taking of personal equipment/items on boat trips, such as cameras, mobile phones, bags, jewellery, glasses etc. is at the participants’ own risk.
Participants must arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time, in order to have time to change into the life suit and other safety clothing. We recommend the use of practical waterproof shoes and warm clothing; hats and gloves if the temperature dictates. Also recommended is waterproof protection for mobile phones and camera equipment if the participants wish to take them on board.
Late arrival may result in a shorter tour or missing the tour altogether. The tour must still be paid in full and no refunds will be given.
Any disagreement between parties that cannot be resolved without the use of court proceedings, the jurisdiction is a court in Norway and its decision will be final.
