Inability to Sail

In the event that the vessel is unable to sail due to weather, sea, emergency, mechanical breakdown or other unforeseen conditions, Carrier will attempt to notify Passengers and Shippers who have given telephone contact information at the time of booking of the inability to sail. Carrier also will attempt to notify Passengers and Shippers of the inability to sail at the Port of Origin.

When the Vessel’s inability to sail is due to reasons other than weather or sea conditions, Carrier may provide, at its sole discretion, a United States Coast Guard Certified substitute Vessel for all or portions of its sailing schedule as Carrier deems appropriate.

If a voyage is underway and the Carrier, through its Vessel Captain, determines that it is not advisable to complete the Voyage to the Port of Destination, the Vessel may return to the Port of Origin or may land at another port on the Island of the Port of Destination. If the Vessel returns to the Port of Origin, Passenger and Shipper may elect to travel on a later Voyage between the same ports on a space-available basis on that day or may elect to cancel the booking and receive a refund from Carrier, which refund will be mailed to Passenger or Shipper at a mailing address to be provided to Passenger or Shipper within thirty (30) days from the date of election. If the Vessel lands at another port on the island of the Port of Destination, Carrier shall arrange for land transportation of Passengers, Shippers and Parcels from the alternate port to the Port of Destination.
