  • Passions of Paradise reserves the right to cancel the day tour due to poor weather conditions, mechanical problems, or use another vessel, or travel to different reef sites. Passions of Paradise offer a two-destination itinerary, however at times the weather may make one of these destinations unsafe or impractical to visit on those days, may only visit one location. In poor weather, it is the Skippers discretion on the way to the reef to decide which locations to visit; keeping passenger safety, the safety of the vessel, and passenger comfort in mind. There are no refunds issued for an itinerary change. The Team will endeavour to sail as much as possible each day, however wind speed and direction determine if or how long this occurs. The Skipper will inform everyone of sailing plans each day. Should the trip be cancelled due to poor weather or mechanical breakdown, Passion of Paradise will refund 100% of the nett rate.
