Trip Package Details

We strongly recommend that trip participants obtain trip cancellation/interruption insurance in the event of a forced or unforeseen trip cancellation.
Credit Card Fees: CC fees are added into the total trip cost. FINZ Scuba Club cannot economically cover these fees and manage trip costs.

Trip Cancellations: FINZ Scuba Club retains the right to cancel any trip prior to departure. In such case, full refund of land cost constitutes full settlement. We are not responsible for additional expenses incurred by trip members in preparation for the trip if their trip is canceled or re-scheduled for any reason.

No refunds can be made for arrangement canceled due to adverse weather, mechanical failure, or for substitution of facilities and/or equipment or for travel inconvenience. Unused portions of trips, are non-refundable. Participants denied scuba privilege for any reason whatsoever by the trip leader, boat captain, dive master or dive operator, including improper documentation of certification, will receive no refund unless agreed to by the dive operator.
It is highly recommended that you review and have dive accident and trip insurance for your own protection to cover the additional costs of such incidents that are normally covered by other medical and personal insurance policies you may or may not currently have. Two options in the industry are Divers Alert Network, http://diversalertnetwork.org and Dive Assure, https://diveassure.com/en/home/ and recommend you find a plan that meets your needs.
