TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF PRIVATE BOAT CHARTER
These Terms and Conditions set out the basis on which we (“Haste to Sea”) and you (the “passenger”) agree to conduct all business. For the avoidance of doubt, these Terms and Conditions apply to all charters and passengers.
Passengers are required to accept that a charter at sea has risks and whilst commonly occurring risks have been identified, assessed and mitigated as far as reasonably possible, Haste to sea cannot be held responsible (save where prescribed by statute) for any passenger injuries, illness, loss of property or damage occurring during a charter.
Passengers are strongly advised to have appropriate personal accident and / or travel insurance in place before undertaking a charter.
All passengers are required to wear a life jacket, (which is supplied) at all times whilst on the vessel and conduct themselves in a manner which does not unduly endanger themselves or others. Passengers are required to participate in a short safety briefing given by the skipper of the vessel whilst they are on the quayside, prior to boarding the vessel.
All decisions regarding the running of the vessel and the safety of passengers are taken by the vessel skipper. The skipper’s decision is final in all matters, including for the avoidance of doubt, any decisions as to the suitability of the weather and / or sea conditions to enable a charter to proceed.
All charters are subject to suitable weather conditions and may have to be cancelled at short notice. Haste to Sea will generally notify passengers on the day prior to their charter, about the likelihood of their charter taking place or being cancelled due to weather or other circumstances.
Haste to Sea cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred or inconvenience caused to passengers due to a charter being cancelled when reasonable notice has been given of the cancellation.
