NB: We do NOT offer half day tours to Sandwich Harbour as we consider this practice dangerous, environmentally irresponsible, and misleading in terms of value. Very often so called ‘half-day Sandwich Harbour tours’ have little chance of actually accessing Sandwich Lagoon because of tide and time limitations.

Children under 12 are charged at 50% of the adult rate

Please note that we have a cancellation policy of 25% of the full amount for a booking cancelled between 30 and 15 days before the tour date; 50% for a booking cancelled 14-7 days before the tour date; and 100% for a booking cancelled less than 7 days before the tour date.


Please note that there may occasionally be days when a combination of climatic conditions (including but by not restricted to tides) make it impossible to access the final section of beach accessing Sandwich Lagoon. These conditions cannot be reliably predicted and we are not able to forecast their alignment in advance. Should such circumstances occur we rely on the expertise and experience of our guides to decide whether or not to proceed. The safety of our guests will always be their first priority. Similarly the guides’ knowledge and local expertise will ensure that the day tour continues in an interesting, informative and adventurous vein. Guests should be aware of this possibility and prepared to follow an alternative agenda if the need arises.

Also, we describe our tour to Sandwich Bay as “adventurous” and “challenging” for good reason. It is made as safe as possible by our first rate guides, but an element of risk cannot be ruled out. If you would prefer a gentler, but equally fascinating desert excursion, our ‘Sheltering Desert’ tour might be a better option.
