We hold the right to cancel the reservation according to the applicable booking policy for the particular booking in case this information is not supplied by the guest. 

2. Responsibility of the guest
2.1 The customers are themselves responsible for transportation to and from the mooring location of the liveaboard or cruise boat. DiveSafariMaster.com may offer some suggestion for airlines, hotels and transfer option, but holds no affiliation with these companies and thus cannot be held accountable for their services.
2.2 Customers are responsible to meet the health and disability requirements defined by the operator, and make sure they are in good shape by conducting a health checkup by a healthcare professional if they book a diving trip. Customers must notify us in writing at the time of booking of any physical or mental illness, disability or other conditions for which special accommodations or the use of a wheelchair is necessary or contemplated.
2.3 To participate in diving activities requires certification by organizations such as PADI to make sure you have all necessary skills for safety and enjoyment during a diving trip. The customers themselves are responsible to meet the minimum required logged dives standard of each diving trip. Guests are responsible to get relevant and appropriate training before going on any trip.
2.4 Customers should take care of their own insurance, ensuring it covers adventure travel and sports so as to be protected in case of dive accidents or other adventure-travel related risks.
2.5 The customer agrees to respect to rules of the operator and acknowledges that if the rules of the boat are broken, the operator (or captain) has the right to deny entry on board, deny diving activities or any of the activities offered by the operator.
2.6 The customers themselves are responsible to meet the passport, visa, health requirements to enter the country or countries where the trip is organized.
2.7 We advise guests to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by their governments prior to their departure.
2.8 The guest should inquire about vaccination and prevention of tropical ailments with a doctor and follow their advice. DiveSafariMaster.com cannot provide medical advice.
2.9 If for any reason you are delayed in transit and fail to reach a liveaboard or cruise boat by the scheduled time of departure, you will be responsible for all costs involved in catching up with the boat (should it be possible to arrange this locally), staying at onshore accommodations, alternative diving arrangements etc. We advise you to travel at least a day early and have an extra day on land before the day of the return flight.

3. Special requests
3.1 During reservation the guest can make special requests. These requests may need additional information and will be agreed upon in communication between the operator and the guest. DiveSafariMaster.com is in no situation responsible for the availability or condition of rental gear, special dietary requests, specific extra cabin facilities, (dive) courses requested, activities requested and other special requests.
3.2 For diving gear, we advise guests to bring their own gear as this will contribute to a better diving experience. We do advise guests to rent an additional diving computer in case one breaks down, to prevent not being able to dive for 24 hours.
3.3 Special dietary requests may be notified. We do advise however to limit these requests to necessary diet requirements only (e.g. due to religious beliefs or allergies). We do however suggest that our guests enjoy the delicious food served onboard by most operators.

5. Cancellation & Amendments
5.1 No show for or early departure from a trip is considered to be the same as a cancellation after departure and no refund applies.
5.2 In case of a booking amendment request we will do our best to help you as a guest to find a suitable alternative trip depending on availability of other boats. 
5.3 In case of amendment or cancellation with a (partial) refund we will apply a 3% administration fee to cover our credit card, bank transfer and/or handling costs incurred. This fee is calculated on the total amount of the reservation. Cancellations always need to be submitted in writing by email (info@divesafarimaster.com) to avoid misunderstanding. 
5.4 The boat depends on maintenance schedules (dry-dock) in their operating country. If the vessel is not in condition to sail or if there are any delays in the dry-dock, the operator has the right to operate the same itinerary with a different vessel. In this case the customers have to accept the change of vessel. If the standard of the vessel lacks important facilities compensation can be made, but this is not an obligation. 
5.5 The operator has the right to replace the vessel and operate the same itinerary as long as the vessel offers similar standards as the liveaboard or cruise boat that was initially booked by the guest. DiveSafariMaster.com will not be liable for disputes arising out of the appointment of a different vessel. 
5.6 The operator has the right to change the cabin allocation depending on availability and the condition of the cabin for use.  
5.7 In line with the industry norm, trips cancelled by the operator entitle you to a refund. Shortened trips entitle you to a proportionate refund, delayed trips to a choice of refund or re-scheduled trip, and lengthened trips have no extra charge.

5.8 Cancellation fees:

– Three month before the trip or more it is possible to change dates of the trip only if desired week is available

– More than one month before the trip 20% of the cost will be retained by the boat

– Within 30 days of the trip or during the trip, 100% of the total cost will be retained  by the boat.
