Our daytime trips operate from 10:30am to 5:30pm and evening packages operate from 7pm to 11pm unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in advance.
The standard rental time is 7 hours for a day trip and 4 hours for an evening trip. The maximum travel time (boat underway) between pick-up and drop-off cannot exceed 4 hours. Overtime charges may be incurred. Customised charter hours can be arranged at the time of booking. In the case that charters go overtime, which is out of the control of Lazydays (i.e. guests not getting back onboard the boat in time for the return trip), additional charges will be incurred of HK$2000 per hour.
Extra fuel charges for long journeys apply – please confirm your route prior to departure. Each boat’s overtime and fuel charges are different depending on where they are moored.
Pick-up point and drop-off point should be agreed the time of booking. Pick-up and drop-off points are assumed to be the same. If a different drop-off location is required it must be agreed at the time of booking (not on the day of departure).
Lazydays will consider the trip as cancelled if the booking party does not show up after 2 hours. If there were no further instructions from the charterer, the trip would be regarded as cancelled.
All menu and drinks items are subject to availability. We make every effort to provide all items and apologise in advance for any unavailability. Any special food or beverage requirements may be subject to additional charges.
At the end of the charter, upon arrival at the drop-off point, passengers are not permitted to take any left-over food or beverages (as provided by Lazydays).
Alcohol will not be served to passengers under the age of 18.
Packages will generally be served buffet style unless a customised charter has been agreed.
Please note that Lazydays charges the outstanding amount after deposit based on the final count of confirmed passengers (advised in advance) and NOT on the actual number of passengers attending the trip, in the case that the actual number is less than the final count of confirmed passengers.
Deposits for boat bookings are non-refundable.
Six person inflatable island lounger damage deposit is refundable as long as no damage over normal wear has occurred and guests have followed crew instructions for use and the safety guidelines provided. Damage to the inflatable lounger will incur costs which can be more than the damage deposit. The replacement cost for this item is around HK$6,000 – HK$7,000.
Lazydays reserves the right to use photographs taken on charters for promotional purposes. If you are unhappy about a photo of you that is being used by Lazydays, please contact us.
If the Typhoon Signal 3 or higher is hoisted or an official Black Rainstorm Warning has been issued in the two hours before the charter, all trips will be postponed to a future date in agreement with the booking party. In such cases all payments will be held. The postponed trip must be taken within the same calendar year as the date of the original charter. If a typhoon signal and/or rainstorm warning are hoisted / issued during the charter, for the purposes of safety our boat will return to the agreed drop-off point or alternative place of shelter without delay. No refunds will be issued if a typhoon signal and/or rainstorm warning are hoisted / issued during the charter.
The rental date cannot be changed for rain, Typhoon Signal 1, Thunder Warning, Yellow or Red Rain warnings or any other bad weather conditions. If the renting party insists on cancelling the rental then any monies already paid (including the Initial Deposit) will be forfeited.
If there is a change in weather conditions or for safety reasons, the captain of the boat has the right to choose a safer route to a destination and a safer location to dock and disembark. The booking party must embark and disembark at the designated pier.
If there is a machine failure before the boat starts its journey and repair cannot be made on time, Lazydays will, as soon as possible, notify the booking party to change the date, or provide a boat similar to the type of boat chartered as a substitute or refund the rental fee. If the customer chooses a refund, then in addition to the full refund, Lazydays will add 5% of the sum already received as compensation.
If there is a mechanical breakdown during a trip, the captain of the boat shall try his best to carry the passengers back to the agreed drop off point. If the boat has spent more than half of the time the boat was chartered for or the destination has already been reached, no compensation of time will be given. If there is a compensation of time, the boat can only be used on a day which is not a public holiday or weekend.
Passengers are solely responsible for their personal safety and that of any property they bring aboard.
Bringing illegal substances or using illegal substances during the charter is STRICTLY NOT ALLOWED. Lazydays has a zero tolerance policy for illegal substances and we reserve the right to cancel a trip where these substances have been found onboard.
Flammable items such as sparklers are not allowed as these are a fire hazard. Lazydays is a no-smoking boat however for those guests that need to smoke, we allow this on the back swim deck only. Please adhere to the smoking area as notified by the crew as smoking in other areas is a fire hazard.
For your own safety no dancing, running, jumping or diving off the boat during cruising speed and running or jumping on or diving off the upper deck while lying at anchor or swimming in the evening is allowed. Swimming when the boat is not at anchor is extremely dangerous as the engine will still be running. In these cases, and cases of any other dangerous activities, we reserve the right to disembark all passengers at the nearest pier or landing steps and any monies paid will be forfeited.
Lazydays takes no responsibility for damages, theft or personal injuries during boarding, the duration of the charter or at the time of disembarkation. Passengers should obtain their own insurance for such purposes.
