  • Bookings for Scenic Cruises may be transferred to an alternative date if that date is available no less than 24 hours from sailing.

  • No refunds will be given if passengers don't turn up for a sailing.

  • All sailings are subject to change at Waikato River Explorer’s discretion for reasons of operational requirements.
