We understand plans can change, so here are our conditions and policies

These Terms and Conditions over-ride any and all other Terms and Conditions previously provided to you. Please read them carefully as when you book your ticket on one of our tours you are agreeing to abide by these terms and conditions in all circumstances and situations.
We have tried to keep these very simple and straightforward but if we can clarify what any of them means or why it is necessary please don’t hesitate to contact us.
References to Undersea Walk also apply to SCUBA diving and snorkelling activities and other activities run by us or our agents in the environs of the Busselton Jetty unless specifically stated otherwise.

PLEASE MEET US AT THE DEEP END OF THE JETTY (WHICH IS 1.7 KILOMETERS OUT TO SEA) 5-10 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR TOUR'S SCHEDULED START TIME.
IT WILL TAKE YOU UP TO HALF AN HOUR TO GET FROM THE SHORE TO WHERE YOUR TOUR STARTS FROM ON THE DEEP END OF THE JETTY. (This does not include time required to find parking at the Jetty when you arrive if it is busy.)
Due to safety issues it is not possible to join your tour after the safety briefing for your tour starts. Whilst our team will do everything they can to fit you onto another tour standby (ie you go if there is a space available) during your holiday if this is not possible you will unfortunately forfeit your tickets without any refund being payable.
So please do NOT be late for your tour start time.

PAYMENT TERMS
We require payment in full at the time of you booking your tour.

The amount of this refund will be the amount you paid for your ticket less $99. No refund is payable if you decide to end your tour early after you have let go of the dive ladder and commenced your undersea walk.

CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
Dive Busselton Jetty has a Responsible Refunds Policy. Whilst not contradicting any other Terms and Conditions this basically involves us taking full responsibility for any and all actions that we have taken or failed to take that has negatively impacted on our customers.
We will offer a refund that is consistent with our actions and how much of your tour and what components of your tour were completed prior to the tour cessation being necessary.
Under this policy we also require our guests to each take full responsibility for any and all of their actions that are outside of our control or influence that resulted in them having a less than ideal outcome for their tour with us and to not hold us responsible for factors beyond our control.
Tour refunds are always based on the price actually paid by the customer not based on the usual price of our tours.
Cancelling tours is something we do everything we can NOT to do. However on occasion we may need to cancel a tour due to safety concerns weather conditions and other factors beyond our control or not having enough guests to be able to run a tour without making a financial loss doing so.
We strongly recommend all guests take out travel insurance if they are wanting to be able to get a full refund for tours that are cancelled for factors outside of our control. A significant proportion of our costs in delivering our tours are already incurred in the very act of having staff and operations on hand ready to go so providing a full refund for factors beyond our control is not something we can afford to do.
Should we cancel a tour we reserve the right to do everything we can to reschedule you onto our next available tour. Should this not be possible in situations where the cancellation is for factors beyond our control we will issue you with
i) a repeat tour voucher valid for three years from the date of your tour and
ii) a cashback voucher for $50 claimable when you rebook your tour with us to cover the costs of your return fuel.
Both repeat tour voucher and $50 cashback voucher are sell-able or transferable to a third party too.
If the tour is cancelled because of a factor we could control (eg minimum numbers of participants to run the tour is not met) then we will issue you a full refund less any commissions owing to agents taking your booking.
In the act of booking with us you accept the above refunds policy and further that you agree that you will not hold Dive Busselton Jetty liable for any costs you have incurred over and above the cost of the Dive Busselton Jetty tour that you have purchased. Specifically you agree that we are not liable for any costs incurred by you relating to any aspect of your holiday in general. These costs include any and all costs incurred by you in travelling to and from Busselton or the surrounding region and any and all accommodation and meal expenses whilst in Busselton or the surrounding region.

FULLY INFORMING US OF ALL MEDICAL AND OTHER CONDITIONS OF RELEVANCE
All guests are required to fully disclose and communicate to us any and all medical or physiological or psychological conditions or history that may impact on their ability to participate fully in one of our tours in a normal and safe manner.
Failure to do so represents a breach of our Terms and Conditions and as such guests are required to agree that they will not and cannot legally take action against us for issues arising because of their failure to fully disclose all material issues relating to their tour.
A Medical Assessment form will be emailed to you when you book and needs to be completed before you attend for your tour. You agree to review this form rigorously to identify any and all medical conditions that are of concern for you or anyone else you are booking onto a tour to go diving with us. Should you or one of your party be unable to participate in one of our tours because of a medical condition of concern and you raise this at least 72 hours before your tour departure date and time we will issue you a full refund less any commissions payable to agents who you booked our tour through. If you book a tour within the 72 hours before it is scheduled to start we agree to issue you a full refund less any commissions payable to agents who you booked your tour through.
You agree to raise all such medical conditions of concern (if any) with a GP / doctor (we recommend a Diving Medicine GP if you can find one nearby) to get them to clear you to go diving before you arrive for your tour. You will be required to sign a declaration you have done this and the GP has approved you to go diving before you can commence your tour. You agree that if you fail to do this and raise your tour may be cancelled without refund if your tour cannot be rescheduled.
If you do not identify or raise medical conditions of concern with a GP prior to attending for your tour and these then prevent you participating in your tour we will not be liable for your failure to do this and no refund will be payable.

WEATHER CONDITIONS AND OTHER EXTRAORDINARY ISSUES ARISING
Weather conditions will make the conditions of a number of tours each season less than ideal. Whilst this is outside of our control we will do everything we can to ensure our guests enjoy their tour regardless and to minimise the impact of the weather conditions on our guests. However we cannot be held responsible nor liable for less than ideal weather conditions during a tour where it is still safe to run the tour. Whether to cancel a tour or not is entirely at our discretion – we work to a number of guidelines based on swell size current and visibility whilst underwater.
Similarly it may become necessary to alter reschedule or change aspects of our tour because of weather or other extraordinary issues. In this instance we will again do everything we can to ensure our guests have the best possible time they can whilst on our tour including providing substitute tours to full or partial value if at all possible. However we cannot be held responsible for when such events occur and accept no liability for the impact of such changes or associated issues on our guests.

NO GUARANTEES TO WILDLIFE POSSIBLE
Dive Busselton Jetty makes no attempt to guarantee that customers will swim with or see any particular marine or terrestrial life whilst on one of our tours or that fish-feeding will generate a large number of fish – we are operating in the open ocean with wild creatures and Mother Nature at work so please come with expectations that recognise this.
We do guarantee however that we will do everything we realistically can to make these things happen and to do things as well as we possibly can so you can enjoy your experiences as much as possible.

Andrew
Amazing first-time SCUBA experience
We had an excellent experience when trying SCUBA diving for the first time. Staff very helpful and friendly and we saw heaps of sea creatures.

Dave
Great couple of dives with Dive Busselton Jetty
There is a fascinating ecosystem under Busselton Jetty: beautiful soft corals and ascidians grow on the pylons, octopuses crawl about the rubble on the seafloor and globefish, Morwong and Dhufish float peacefully in the water column. There are beds of sea-grass with cardinal fish hovering over them; stingrays drift past and nudibranchs slither among the rotting logs. A diving experience not to be missed. Dive Busselton Jetty are very professional and their gear is in good condition. Highly recommended.

Petra
Great Dive At the Busso Jetty
Had 2 awesome dives with Dive Busselton Jetty. It's so convenient to have the dive gear waiting for you at the end of the jetty. Very good quality equipment, clean, professional service. Those guys do a fantastic job. Will be back again next year.
