Conditions of carriage


The Company operates an electronic reservation system. Upon payment, confirmations are issued by our website which may or may not be printed by the passenger. A printed ticket is not necessary as passengers are permitted to board in accordance with the passenger list issued by the reservation system.

Boarding times

Passengers should present themselves at the point of departure no later than 15 minutes before the advertised departure time for the trip.

Boarding and Landing Points

On certain trips tidal conditions and harbour activities in St Peter Port will mean that the landing point may not always be the same as the boarding point.


Passengers may cancel their bookings at any time up to 48 hours before the scheduled departure time and receive a full refund, but for cancellations notified within 48 hours no refund will be given. Cancellations must be notified by e-mail. If you did not book direct with Bumblebee then please cancel with the booking agent. 


No refund will be made to passengers who do not present themselves at the departure point in time to board the trip they have booked.

Special offers and promotions

Fare offers and promotions are not retrospective. Bookings made before the commencement of an offer or promotion are charged at the price prevailing at the time of booking.


If you wish to change your booking, every effort will be made to find you a suitable alternative trip of the same value. If no suitable alternative is available, then the cancellation policy will apply. Changes made within 48 hours of the scheduled departure time will incur a change fee of 50% payable at the time of re-booking. Changes must be notified by e-mail.  If you did not book direct with Bumblebee then please make changes with the booking agent.


In the event that weather conditions on the route are likely to make the passage dangerous or unreasonably uncomfortable the Company reserves the right to cancel the trip or change the route. If the trip has to be cancelled, passengers will be offered a full refund or an alternative booking.

Refusal of carriage

The Company reserves the right to deny carriage to any passenger whose mental or physical state, or impairment from alcohol or drugs, may present a risk to himself, other passengers or the safe operation of the vessel.

Passengers on any international trip will not be carried unless they are in possession of a valid passport.

The Captain's decision is final.

No refund is made in cases of refusal of carriage.
