Due to our limited capacity and small passenger groups, sailaway has a strict 24-hour cancellation policy. This means there will be no refund with a 100% fee if cancelled within 24 hours of travel. If you choose not to travel due to unfavourable weather, personal illness or change in travel plans, unfortunately there will be no refund. We would be happy to provide you with a letter to claim the cost of your tour on your travel insurance. If you cancel your tour with plenty of notice, you will be entitled to a full refund.


The same policy applies to change your date of travel. If you give more than 24 hours’ notice, you are welcome to change your date of travel, providing we have availability. If you ask to change your date of travel within 24 hours of your tour departure time, unfortunately this is considered a last-minute cancellation and you will not be able to reuse your ticket, as we have held those seats for you on your chosen date.

It’s important for us that our sailaway guests can use their tickets and enjoy our experience, so please contact us at any time if you have any concerns or change of plans and we can work with you to find a compromise that suits us both.


If you choose to cancel your tour on the day of travel if the sun is not shining or feel it’s too windy, this is your choice, however our cancellation policy will apply.

We rely on our guests having a wonderful time on the great barrier reef. We watch the weather carefully, to determine if the weather is suitable to travel. We aim to be as reliable as possible to ensure our guests get to the reef and enjoy their tour. Having luxury sailing catamarans, our vessels are comfortable and stable and enjoy a bit of breeze so we can provide a pure sailing experience. Our average wind speed here is 18 knots primarily from the south / southeast, so it’s very unusual that we cancel a tour due to strong winds. The tides will also impact the snorkel sites. Check the tide charts or discuss with our office for the best opportunities.

If the forecast predicts extreme winds and issues a strong wind warning, we may decide its best not to sail on that day. In this instance we would contact you to change your tour to a more suitable day, or offer a full refund. With regard to rain, we don’t cancel our tours if its forecast scattered showers. We may cancel in the event of extreme rain forecast which would impact our activities and effect the water visibility. In our wet season we will have rain around, but this generally remains closer to the coastal mountains and its often much clearer on the reef. During this time the water is warm, so you can still enjoy snorkelling as the marine life is beautiful under the water.
