Booking Terms & Conditions
Our operational season currently runs on weekends from early May through until early October, however we will be expanding to weekdays very soon! Our weekend hours are from 10:00am when the first set of boats leave until 17:30pm when the last set of boats return to the marina. We run on a very efficient hour by hour schedule, we want to maximise everyone’s experience so every minute counts! Therefore, we ask that all participants arrive at least half an hour before their booked slots in order to sign in, register and complete all the necessary safety paperwork and receive a full safety briefing from the shore crew and the skippers. Due to the importance we place on staff and customer safety, we operate a 10 minute cut off time for late arrivals. Customers arriving 10 minutes before their allocated slot will not be able to participate at that given time as the necessary safety procedures cannot be completed in less than 10 minutes.
The majority of our experiences are suitable for almost anyone from 8 to 70 years old (under 16s will need to be with parents or guardians) except the Thunderbolt experience which is only suitable for adults 18+. Disabled access is limited please contact us to discuss requirements.
Our experiences require the use of safety equipment and can often put the body through rapid movement and acceleration, the following participant restrictions apply to ensure everybody’s safety. Any queries regarding the below guidelines can be directed to the event manager on the day. If you know that you do not meet any of the below restrictions, please do not book as you will not be able to go! On arrival all participants are asked to sign a medical disclaimer to agree that they meet the below restrictions.

Please be aware that you cannot cancel a booking and it cannot be transferred within 28 days of the event. The administration cost of transferring a booking prior to the 28 days is £25.00. If the holder of the gift voucher wishes to upgrade their voucher to a another type of experience they may do so by paying the difference. There is no administration charge for doing this. It is the drivers responsibility to arrive on time to complete the experience. We are unable to wait for late arrivals and if the health and safety briefing is missed or has started the driver will not be allowed to participate. All bookings are final and no refund will be given. We do offer cancellation safeguard for £20 per booking that will cover one cancellation for illness, death of a close family member, and breakdown/flight delay. In all instances proof is required before rebooking (i.e... doctors sick note copy of breakdown report from relevant recovery agency).
Sometimes we have to cancel an experience for reasons beyond our control, such as the weather or mechanical breakdown. We will do our best to notify you as soon as possible and do everything we can to offer an alternative date or time. We regret that, in these circumstances, Saber Powersports Ltd is unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or any other expenses you may incur in relation to the cancelled experience.
Session lengths are approximate, vary from venue to venue and are given simply as an indication of the time you will spend at the venue.

All our experiences are dependent on the weather and we advise you to call to check the weather before setting out. If your experience is cancelled due to the weather you will be able to re-book, but your re-booked experience remains subject to weather conditions.
All our experiences are offered subject to availability. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of dates. To help us, please book as early as possible, preferably at least 28 days in advance or further for peak dates such as weekends or holiday periods. Bookings are not confirmed until you receive confirmation in writing from us. For some experience vouchers we may ask you to return the original certificate to us before we can confirm your booking.
