Although we would love to see you on-board KLM AMALIA, we understand that plans can change. Should you need to cancel your booking, we ask that you notify us at your earliest convenience. All cancellations must be received in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
Any refunds outside of our terms will be subject to a claim on Your Insurance Company and we are happy to write you a letter, which you can give to your insurer as proof of your loss, though we cannot be held accountable if your claim is rejected for whatever reason. PT. Uber Scuba Menyelam is not responsible for any charges caused by the transfer process in the event of a refund and if there is any alteration of exchange rate.
We strongly recommend you purchase appropriate international travel insurance at the time you pay your deposit. If you do not purchase travel insurance, you may not be able to recover cancellation charges, medical costs, repatriation and other expenses that may arise if things do not go according to plan. Please also ensure this insurance covers you for scuba diving to 30 meters. We recommend DAN (Divers Alert Network) Insurance as they provide a specific cover tailored to scuba divers. A no show for whatever reason, including but not limited to flight delays, hangovers, or just not getting out of bed will mean loss of payment and no refund.
If you cannot complete scheduled individual or all dives due to ill health whilst on board, please understand that there will be no refund given and if required a letter for travel insurance purposes to claim the value of missed dives can be provided. For illnesses prior to joining please see the above cancellation policy, which will apply. Travel insurance is very handy in these situations and we strongly recommend you purchase this prior to arrival.
For closed port situations or bad weather, exchange products and/or other alternatives will be offered. As PT Uber Scuba Menyelam offer overnight dive tours, if you choose to not complete all dives signed up for in the course of the liveaboard trip, you will still be liable for full payment. Rainy or cloudy weather are no valid reason for cancellation, and we strictly follow harbour master recommendations on when to cancel a tour.
PT Uber Scuba Menyelam, its subsidiaries, and operators reserve the right to rearrange the order of any itinerary, to cancel or substitute elements of any schedule without notice when local conditions force such changes. PT Uber Scuba Menyelam and the dive guides on the boat can prohibit participation on dives at their discretion based on lack of respect for ecological rules and regulations, lack of respect – or “handling” of any marine life, alcohol consumption between dives or not abiding by international safe diving rules. In this case we will not refund you for the missed dives.
There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our guests and all activities are carried out under strict and safe supervision. We ask you to follow your guide during all scuba diving activity, always ensuring you stay ABOVE and BEHIND your guide and NEVER below. This ensures you limit the risk of getting lost, getting taken by a current, going into deco, or possibly seeing nothing (as we cannot show you cool things if you are not there to look!). We expect you to follow safe scuba diving practices at all times.
PT. Uber Scuba Menyelam is not responsible for any losses, damage, death, injuries, or claims whatsoever arising from, connected with, or related to any activities engaged in by guests while aboard KLM AMALIA or KLM AMALIA’s tenders at sea or in any port of call. This includes all shore excursions and transfers. Guests engage in all activities aboard or off the boat at their own risk.
PT. Uber Scuba Menyelam is not responsible for any interruptions caused by flight delays, cancellations or any other travel arrangements made by or external or in conjunction to your booked liveaboard trip. Please ensure you have adequate travel insurance cover arranged to reduce your risk. If your plane is delayed and your arrival time to KLM AMALIA will be later than the scheduled departure time, a fee will payable to transport you by speedboat to catch up with the vessel. Departure date and time from KLM AMALIA will be as planned, and we cannot offer later departure times or additional singular days on board due to our fixed schedule. If you do have an early flight on departure day, an additional charge for a speedboat transfer will be added to your bill – we suggest you plan your departure for the day following the liveaboard tour as it may interfere with your diving schedule due to the 18 hours no fly after diving rule.
*IF FLIGHT DETAILS ARE UNKNOWN AT TIME OF BOOKING YOU MUST EMAIL US WHEN YOU HAVE BOOKED AND UPDATE US ON YOUR FLIGHT DETAILS*
In your flight planning, please ensure your flight arrives before 9am on the day the liveaboard starts to avoid delays, we recommend you arrive the day before. We also recommend you fly the day after the liveaboard ends to ensure an 18 hours no fly time, we cannot guarentee the time back to port, so if it is absolutly necessary for you to fly the same day, please plan your flight for after 3pm. If a speedboat transfer is required to transport you to/from the boat due to flight delays, you will be charged 1,000,000IDR for one pax and thereafter 500,000IDR per additional person to join the liveaboard.
PT. Uber Scuba Menyelam is not liable for failure to perform their obligations if such failure is as a result of Acts of God (including fire, flood, earthquake, storm, hurricane, volcanic ash cloud, or other natural disaster), war, invasion, act of foreign enemies, hostilities (regardless of whether war is declared), civil war, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, military or usurped power or confiscation, terrorist activities, nationalization, government sanction, blockage, embargo, labor dispute or strike.
