Due to the complexity of arranging foreign programs the following cancellation policy is required.
If cancellations are made 120 calendar days prior to the starting date of the program, you will be granted a full refund of your trip deposits minus a $500 processing fee.
No refunds are given when cancellations are made less than 119 calendar days from the program starting date. We can not make any exceptions to our cancellation policy. Please Read this document in full.
During the complex era of COVID-19, we have reconsidered our cancellation policy, creating a more relaxed policy. We want to travel with you again sharing the natural and cultural wonders of our international destinations. We truly miss traveling with groups as well as supporting our international community of outfitters and friends. Travelers are still encouraged to feel confident when making travel plans by purchasing Cancel for Any Reason travel insurance coverage to help protect their program. You may want to consider the Cancel for Any Reason travel insurance coverage as part of a travel protection plan from Travel Insured International, as described below.
Our BVI program takes us into an area of the world where a medical evacuation could be costly. All costs for evacuations and/or medical treatments are the responsibility of each participant, a cost that travel protection should cover. Please travel with a credit card in the event that payments are required for an evacuation or medical treatment.
Blue Water Ventures (BWV) directs our clients to travel insurance offered by Travel Insured International. Since some benefits are time sensitive, including the Pre-Existing Condition Waiver and Cancel for Any Reason Coverage, Travel Insured encourages all travelers to purchase a plan at the time of initial deposit.
To include the Pre-Existing Condition Waiver or Cancel for Any Reason, trip protection must be purchased within 21 days from when your initial trip deposit is received. Additional terms apply. You may still purchase Travel Protection at a later date, but the pre-existing condition waiver or cancel for any reason will not be available.
Travel Protection Plans offer a variety of benefits, including coverage for medical evacuations. Plans also include Trip Cancellation coverage for a full refund if you need to cancel your trip for a covered reason, in addition to many other insurance benefits and non-insurance assistance services. Travel Protection helps provide coverage for unexpected circumstances and helps protect you and your travel investment. Please refer to your proposed plan document for complete plan details, exclusions and limitations before purchasing your plan.

With the COVID-19 episode of 2020, Travel Insured recommends that you purchase the World Wide Trip Protector Plan and consider the Cancel for Any Reason “add on feature”. This add on feature will provide a reimbursement of up to 75% of your prepaid non-refundable trip costs if you cancel 48 hours or longer before your scheduled departure date.

A Note from the Owner of Blue Water Ventures: In order to provide our rich international programs, Blue Water Ventures sends deposits to outfitters in other countries. In some cases, these deposits are nonrefundable for any reason. Blue Water Ventures has been traveling with groups domestically and internationally since 1996 and the owner, Kim Powell started her career as an international guide 10 years prior in 1986. We have had some truly outstanding adventures with 100’s of incredible people over the decades! Both the travel industry in general and our eco-adventure small business are faced with new challenges. However, we remain committed to our goal of enriching the lives of our clients and our hosts abroad by providing these extraordinary learning vacations.
