customer, the above policy is not valid.

2. Weather cancellation policy

Our starting point is located on the south coast of Mykonos and it takes in account the prevailing local wind (blowing from north), this is why we can do our main itinerary comfortably with a wind up to 5-6 Beaufort.
With a wind of 7 Bft, instead of Rinia and Delos islands, we do our alternative itinerary: a tour along the south coast of Mykonos, visiting most of the south beaches and a nice cove away from the crowds. Kindly note that this itinerary is perfectly safe thanks to the proximity of the coast (no waves). There is no tour cancellation or refund.
With a wind โ‰ฅ 8 Bft we try to postpone to another day with better weather according to both sides availabilities and, of course, if it’s not possible, we cancel with full refund.
