Cancellation by MaltaBlueDiving
In the case where cancellation has been made by MaltaBlueDiving due to weather conditions as explained below or for any other reason.
If the weather on the day of your diving trip or open water portion of a course prevents us from having a safe and enjoyable experience you will be informed that the trip is cancelled or for the need to change the diving trip to another location or date.
In the event of rain without strong winds or big waves we will NOT cancel any dive trips, as it does not prevent us from having an enjoyable and safe experience. Quite often the weather will have changed by the time we reach the dive site or will be very different to where the day originated.
Dive schedule is subject to change without any prior notice in accordance with weather conditions for your safety. MaltaBlueDiving cannot be held responsible for adverse unforeseen weather conditions, involving rough seas and poor visibility.
We recommend a travel & cancellation insurance policy that covers you for unforeseen circumstances. We will fully support you with any travel insurance claims.
