Customers have been known, due to unforeseen circumstances, to cancel all or part of their diving holiday. This is not something Huskyan Charters can be held liable for and as such we recommend you take out holiday insurance which should cover your expenses in this eventuality. Therefore the price of your charter will not be refunded.

If owing to circumstances beyond our control, we cannot provide the charter booked or a suitable alternative, we will refund all money paid, in full, and the passenger shall have no further claim against us.

For reasons of safety, Huskyan Charters reserve the right to vary the charter and its associated activities in any way we consider preferable due to adverse weather or any other conditions.

All decisions regarding the safety of any vessel in the employ of, or chartered to Huskyan Charters and the safety or health of those on board including during drop-off and recovery of divers, rest with the master/skipper.

MV Huskyan is fully insured to carry 12 passengers within its area of operation. Our insurance does not cover passengers who are away from the vessel or while engaged in diving activities. It is the legal responsibility of the diver/diving group to satisfy themselves that there is/supply sufficient surface cover. We do not accept responsibility for loss of, or damage to, passengers gear, property or valuables whilst on board or in transit. With this in mind please ensure you have adequate insurance cover. If our tanks, weights or any other equipment is used by a divers these become the sole responsibility of that diver.
