Terms, Conditions & Privacy

Covid-19 Update

We have implemented some changes to adhere to Government guidelines but most of all to ensure your health & safety.

Even though we already run small group tours, we have restricted booking numbers of each tour to allow social distancing. If travelling as a larger group we ask you to contact us before booking to help us best cater for your group.

Each guest will receive a small bottle of hand sanitiser on pick up and will be advised of current health and safety hygiene practices. We will contact each guest prior to commencing tour to ensure they are feeling well before commencing any group tour.

We have relaxed our cancellation policy to ease any concerns related to Covid-19 and Government restrictions including travel restrictions and border closures.

Bookings made from June 1st 2020 will be exempt from our *CANCELLATION POLICY below if any guest has Covid-19 symptoms or is unable to travel due to Government restrictions and will receive a full refund if Waves to Wilderness Experiences is advised by email no later than 24 hours before tour departing time.
