*Bookings from 2200- full fee payable in advance, see below for details.

Evening bookings are normally always in advance, especially after 2200. I will not take passengers who have had a night drinking in the pub, so do not call me! Please go by road taxi, or even better book a room.
For bookings between 2200 and midnight the full fee is payable in advance.
If I have to cancel because of the weather a full refund will be offered.

I will refuse to take anyone who, in my opinion, has had too much to drink and there will be NO refund,
either in full or in part (this has happened on four occasions since 2009).

Please keep in mind that a night time passage in an open boat is not the same as getting into the car, and conditions can change rapidly. With modern forecasting I can normally inform you a few days in advance if your trip is looking doubtful, giving you time to make alternative arrangements. Very occasionally conditions can deteriorate on the day / evening.
