If John Gray's Sea Canoe Cancels a trip:

John Gray's Sea Canoe has never canceled a trip for anything but unsafe weather. If we do cancel for weather, there are no refunds but a trip of a similar standard will be offered. In the past, we have only ever had to delay a trip by one day because of tropical storms.
If you book a trip in the monsoon season, you may well get wet! Rain is not a valid reason for canceling a trip. If we cancel for lack of bookings, we will refund the full cost of booking. All other expenses are your responsibility.

Medical Considerations:

It is very important that you advise us well before departure if you have any medical problems. 'Tropical Tummies' are quite common when traveling in South
East Asia. Dehydration and sunstroke are also commonplace. We ask all our guests to pay attention to their lead guide who will advise guests on how to keep in good health. Please discuss with your doctor well in advance about cover for malaria and other tropical diseases. Sea Canoe cannot give advice on these matters. For the
most part, nasty tropical diseases are very rare nowadays, but it is wise to take precautions.
