Field Surveys Policies & Information

REEF Program Fee

An additional REEF program fee ($150-$300) will be added to each trip to cover the cost of the group leader, seminars, survey materials, and data management.  Other additional fees for each trip vary. Please consult with the individual trip information for details.

Cancellation Policies

Upon booking your space, a $250 per person non-refundable deposit is collected (This amount may be more, depending on destination, rooming, time of booking, etc.). The balance of the dive travel package is due no later than 60 days from departure date (90 days for a liveaboard trip), or following vendor rules (whichever is earlier). Notification of cancellation must be made in writing, and is subject to cancellation charges if made within 90 days of trip departure (additional vendor rules may apply). REEF Trips cancelled within 60 days for liveaboard trips and 30 days for land-based trips are 100% non-refundable.

The REEF Fee is non-refundable if cancellation is made within 60 days of the trip departure.

No refunds for unused portions of any dive travel package (including but not limited to ground transportation, dives, nitrox, meals).

Please consult the individual trip details and with REEF's travel consultants at Caradonna to determine a particular trip's cancellation policy and payment deadlines. 1-877-295-REEF (7333), REEF@caradonna.com.

REEF trips require a minimum number of participants. Trips are subject to cancellation if the minimum requirement is not met. In the event of a trip cancellation, REEF and/or any of our travel booking partners are not responsible for airline tickets purchased for travel to a REEF Field Survey.

Prices

  • All prices quoted are per person, based on double occupancy unless otherwise noted.
  • If you are a single and would like a roommate, we will do our best to accommodate your request based on the number and gender of other single participants. However, you will need to pay the single occupancy rate if we cannot match you with a roommate.
  • Non-diving and diving-only prices are available for all land-based trips.
  • Prices do not include airfare. REEF's travel consultants at Caradonna can book your travel.

Liability Form

All trip participants must submit a signed REEF Liability Form to REEF Headquarters prior to the trip.
