Weather Conditions and Responsibility
Sailing Athens acknowledges the integral role of weather conditions in its provision of sailing tours. To ensure safety and customer satisfaction, our team of experts consistently monitor weather forecasts to guide our tour operations.
In the unlikely event of a forecast predicting adverse weather conditions, such as a wavy sea or thunderstorms, the Company reserves the right to cancel the scheduled cruise. This decision will be made with the safety of our guests as the priority.
In case of such cancellations, guests will be offered the following options:
- Rescheduling the cruise for another date. The Company will work with guests to find a suitable alternative.
- If rescheduling is not possible or desirable for the guest, the Company will offer a compensation.
Please note, however, that weather patterns are inherently unpredictable. Despite our rigorous monitoring practices, unforeseen weather conditions may occur. These can include sudden changes in wind direction, unanticipated storms, or other meteorological phenomena that were not predicted in the forecast consulted by the Company prior to the sailing tour.
By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you understand and accept the inherent risks associated with sailing activities, including those posed by unpredictable weather conditions, and agree that the Company is not liable for any disruptions, changes, or cancellations caused by these conditions.

In case you fail to arrive on time at your meeting point location without a prior notice please note that the tour is considered as a NON-SHOW where cancellation charges will automatically apply as per our cancellation policy.
The above conditions do not apply for guests that have booked a full day private trip, where the driver will make efforts to contact the guests and wait for them at the agreed meeting point location for a reasonable amount of time, within the time-frame their private tour lasts. For your convenience, you are kindly requested to arrive at the advised meeting point location 5 minutes prior to your departure.
