Small and medium-sized pets can board the boats for free, as long as they are accompanied by a paying passenger and only if they are leashed and muzzled or kept inside a carrycot or cage. The driver has full discretion to deny access to pets, or may have them disembarked at a later date, if they consider that their presence on board is not safe or may cause damage to the other passengers or if the cage is deteriorated, not perfectly clean or contains food inside. Guide dogs for the visually impaired are allowed on board only if they are on a muzzle and a leash. In the case where the entry on board is not granted to your pet or is denied at a later time, no refund is available for the passenger ticket. It is not possible to bring on board suitcases, large backpacks and bulky luggage. The boats have 1 available space for wheelchairs: wheelchair passengers can only get on board by positioning themselves in the appropriate slot for wheelchairs.

In exceptional cases and/or reasons of force majeure that may prevent the tour already purchased to run regularly (i.e. acts of nature, strikes, exceptional closures, serious unexpected events or health problems experienced by the person in charge with the service after which it is really impossible to find a substitute), the tour might be cancelled. The customer will be notified of this as soon as possible and will be asked to choose between postponing the tour on the first date available or receiving a prompt refund of the price paid for the tour, if the cancellation policy of the service itself allows a refund.
