Yes, Cork Whale Watch is delighted to accept group bookings for larger parties of 6 or more up to a maximum of 12 people. For larger groups we generally require further notice to facilitate numbers and prompt updates if your circumstances change. Please see our Group Bookings page for more details. Our charter rate in 2018 for a 4-5 hour whale watch trip, which can include bird watching, fishing and landscapes is €550.
We ask larger groups of 6 or more people to pay a booking deposit of €150 via pay pal. Please note that you do not need to have a Paypal account to use this facility, as you are using our Paypal account. The balance due can simply be paid on the day by cash after the trip. Of course, if in the event that the trip doesn’t proceed due to weather, or if you give us sufficient notice of a minimum of 48 hours, we will give you an immediate and full refund.
The advantage of using Paypal is that it is safe, immediate and our refunding you is a simple click of a refund button. You paying us a deposit shows a commitment on your part to this booking and eliminates the possibility where groups make a booking while considering other options. The fact that a group has paid a deposit means they are very unlikely not to show up on the day, which happens more often than we’d like when groups don’t pay a deposit.
If you pay a deposit and don’t show up for your trip, then this gives us the option to withhold part or all of your deposit, so we are at least compensated in part for any loss of earnings, as a deposit means we have not taken other bookings for the slot you’ve requested.
