Travel Insurance
It is recommended whilst travelling to have some form of travel insurance. Travel insurance can prevent problems when canceling a trip planned due to last minute illness or damaged / lost property when travelling. As we have a very strict cancellation policy, we recommend that every person travelling is covered by the appropriate insurance. We are more than happy to supply a company letter verifying the need for compensation to your insurance company.

What is EMC (Environmental Management Charge)?
A government charge of AUD$5 per person, per day goes towards research and the preservation of the Great Barrier Reef. This charge is a total of AUD$15 for both trips, which is payable on board the Taka vessel.
