Karma Waters Policies

Tour Confirmed Booking, Cancellation & Refund Policy

Deposit of 50% is required for a Karma Waters Confirmed Booking with full payment received to our account at the latest 3 days before Tour start.  If payment is online from the website, full payment is expected.

Once a customer has confirmed a date & time with Karma Waters, if a customer cancels at least 7 days prior to a scheduled departure then the customer will be able to reschedule with Karma Waters or receive a full refund.

If cancellation is made by a customer less than 7 days prior to a scheduled departure we will refund the total amount minus maximum 15% for our Administration costs.  

Full refunds are available on a case by case basis solely at Karma Waters discretion.

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule at short notice according to weather and other Tour conditions.

Tour Rates for Children (12 or under)

The rates published are for adults.  For children aged twelve years or under, the rate is 50% discounted.  Infants and young children are free.

Tour Agents and Tour Resellers

We use no agents or tour resellers! Please come direct to Karma Waters to make bookings and payments because we pay NO commissions or margins to any Agents as agents do not fully know our tours and can misrepresent what we offer.
