Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Cancellation Policy

Bookings made BEFORE 18 March 2020

If you wish to cancel a tour due to travel restrictions or government advice regarding Coronavirus, we can provide the following options:

  • Rebook you to a date in the future.
  • Provide a gift voucher for the full amount paid. This gift voucher is valid for 3 years and can be transferred to other tours operated by Ocean Park, Shark Bay Dive and Shark Bay 4WD. These vouchers can also be transferred to other people if you wish to sell or gift them in future. Please contact us to arrange this.
  • Apply our cancellation policy (pre-coronavirus) to your booking.
  • Contact your travel insurance. If you booked prior to Coronavirus becoming a known event and before travel restrictions were put in place, you may be able make a claim under your travel insurance policy for the cost of the tour. We will assist you in any way we can with this.

What we cannot do:

  • Provide a full refund. If you are unable to visit Shark Bay or any area due to COVID19 and it’s related travel restrictions, please consider deferring your plans rather than cancelling them and take up our offer of a gift voucher that can be used up to 3 years in the future. By doing this, you are helping to ensure the small local businesses, tour companies and accommodation providers will still be here when we all get back on our feet and you are free to start exploring once again.
