Covid-19: We are currently not able to operate our regularly scheduled Albatross Encounter tours and we are accepting bookings for scheduled tours from 1 October 2020.

Meanwhile, we are able to schedule both private charters and occasional standard tours on request for a minimum group size or tour fare.  Please book departures from October 2020 online now and contact Customer Service regarding immediate queries, private charters and on request tours.

  • DO SCHEDULED TOURS ALWAYS OPERATE?
    Whenever possible they do. Tour operation is subject to a number of factors beyond our control, including the weather, sea conditions and wildlife behaviour. All tours are also subject to having a minimum number of participants to go ahead. When any of these factors mean a tour cannot proceed a full refund will apply. We will give you our best advice on the status of these factors when you reconfirm your booking the day prior.
