Terms and Conditions – Go Pro Asia
Go Pro Asia will go to every effort to assure your stay with us goes smoothly, that we offer you the highest quality service and your technical diver training with us is a truly memorable experience. However, things do go awry. For that reason, we must include all the legal matters listed below.
Our terms and conditions are based on “worst case” scenario. We do not always rely on these terms and often seek to find a more amicable and reasonable solution. These terms and conditions are here if we need them, not because we must use them. As our lawyer said – if the sh*t hits the fan – better have that page up!
I herewith certify and acknowledge that I understand that my acceptance on any diving program organized and conducted by Go Pro Asia or Ban’s Diving Resort, is predicated on my assurance that I am physically fit to engage in any scuba diving activities, either recreational or technical, and that I have had or will receive sufficient training in scuba diving and that I fully understand the risk of these diving activities, of traveling on board a ship and the dangers arising from forces of nature, and I am prepared to assume such risk.
In order to induce Go Pro Asia or it’s partners to accept me as a member of the aforementioned diving program, I hereby release and absolve Go Pro Asia or it’s partners, its agents, employees and invitees from any and all damages resulting from death or personal injuries, including loss of services, which I may sustain on account of, arising from, or in connection with the aforementioned diving program or the ownership, maintenance, use or operation of any automobile, ship, boat, water sport equipment or otherwise.
I further understand that remoteness of destination, local custom and/or prevailing weather conditions may cause minor inconvenience or modification to the diving portions of the tour, and Go Pro Asia or it’s partners reserve the right to modify and/or cancel diving arrangements due to unfavorable weather conditions and/or technical difficulties at any time.
I also agree to pay compensation at full current market value to Go Pro Asia or it’s partners for any and all damage or loss of property and equipment belonging to Go Pro Asia or it’s partners resulting from abuse or negligence on my part. This liability waiver is all subject to the terms and conditions above, which have been read, understood and unconditionally agreed to.
I further agree to strictly observe and comply with additional reasonable terms and regulations Go Pro Asia or any of its employees may deem desirable or needful to prescribe during the course of any diving tour.
Deposit: 20% of Diving course fee upon booking.
If you are partaking in a course, which requires the use of helium, a gas deposit of 50% will be required before the dives commence. This deposit will be based on the estimated expenditure of the gas.
Final Payment: Balance to be settled with Go Pro Asia at the beginning of each course. Trimix Gas bills will be settled at the completion of the course.
Unless otherwise stated in the cancellation terms, you may cancel or amend your booking more than 14 days prior to check-in date, a one time administration fee of 30% of total amount will apply. Any cancellations received later than 14 days prior to check-in date will result in no refund.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL AND DO NOT ARRIVE TO START THE COURSE?
If you do not cancel and do not arrive, you will forfeit 100% of your deposit.
Go Pro Asia, its subsidiaries, and operators reserve the right to rearrange the order of any itinerary, to cancel or substitute elements of any schedule without notice when local conditions force such changes.
Go Pro Asia and the dive guides on the boat can prohibit participation on dives at their discretion based on lack of respect for ecological rules and regulations, lack of respect – or “handling” of any marine life, alcohol consumption between dives or not abiding by international safe diving rules. In this case we will not refund you for the missed dives.
Go Pro Asia would like to remind you that the certification is earned not bought. If our Instructors feel the need for more remedial work with you before certification, then a fee of 5000 THB a day will need to be paid. If not, then the certification may not happen if the instructor feels the student has not adequately met performance requirements.
