Responsibility & Release of Liability

Participants visiting Swains Cay Lodge must understand that participation in fishing, boating diving and other tour excursions in our dynamic marine environment might be risky/hazardous. Fishermen must understand and accept the risks associated with such activities.

Such delays could impose additional cost to you in hotels or in changing airline tickets for which we cannot be responsible.
