WEATHER AT THE CHANNEL ISLANDS
Weather at the Channel Islands is complex because it is such a large area with a wide body of water separating two land areas.
Strong winds and/or very large swell are generally the conditions that force us to cancel trips.
We seldom have to cancel trips due to the weather during our peak season (May-November), but it does happen.
General weather forecasts do not predict the conditions that we’re monitoring for, we used advanced meteorological models. Some of these are very good at indicating unfavorable marine conditions far in advance… but not always.
We may make inclement weather cancellations up to three days in advance but most cancellations due to weather are made within 12 hours of departure. In some cases, we may need to cancel the morning of your trip.
- You will ALWAYS receive a FULL refund or credit for any weather cancellations prior to departure.
