Payment and cancellation policy
A non-refundable deposit of $100 per participant is required to reserve your place in the course and gain access to the SSI e-learning materials. Full course payment is required at least 1 week prior to the course starting. You may change the date of your course up to 1 week before your scheduled course date at no additional cost. If you cancel your course more than 1 week prior to the scheduled start of the course, you will be refunded any payment less the non-refundable $100 deposit. If you cancel your course less than 1 week in advance you will not receive any refund. Due to boating requirements and our small group numbers, if you need to reschedule the open water session with less than 1 week notice, you will be required to pay an additional $150 rebooking fee.
Due to circumstances beyond the control of Encounter Freediving, we may on occasion have to reschedule the date/time of course sessions or change the location. If this occurs, we will reschedule an alternate date agreed to by yourself and Encounter Freediving. If you are travelling to the region and will not be able to complete the course at a later date, then we suggest you take out travel insurance to cover any losses.
