Itineraries and prices are subject to change without notice. A deposit will be stipulated and required upon booking to secure dates with full payment due 28 days prior to charter. A cancellation fee applies for cancellations within 28 days of scheduled departure, see below for our detailed cancellation policy. A full refund applies if a charter is cancelled due to unsafe sea conditions – this decision is at the discretion of our captain.

Any rods or reels lost, including those broken or dropped overboard must be paid for at our cost price.
A cancellation fee applies for cancellations within 28 days of scheduled departure. Cancellations for any South Pacific II charter received 28-14 days prior to charter will be charged at 25%, 13-8 days prior to charter will be charged at 75% and 7 days prior to charter at 100% of total charter fee. South Pacific II reserves the right to cancel a charter should weather conditions be deemed unsuitable – this decision is at the discretion of our captain. Only in this case will the cancellation fee be waived. The captain’s decision is based on the latest observations of wind speed/gust knot rate and wind direction as per the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology website. Should the guest/s cancel a charter for any other reason, ie overcast weather conditions, rain etc., the cancellation fees stipulated above will apply.
