Terms and Conditions
Please make note of the following:
Guests must be at the dock in Quirpon by 3:30-3:45PM for the 4:00 PM departure. If you are in the area and would like to go out earlier, stop by, you may want to do a zodiac tour and end up at the inn!
Pack lightly (max 20 lbs/person) as luggage space in the boat may be limited and luggage must have a soft exterior, please no suitcases with wheels. We have small packs available, if you need one.
Bring warm clothes and footwear (ex. rubber boots or something you don’t mind getting wet) for possible wet conditions while walking, riding the boat and watching whales from the cliffs in the evening.
For walkers (or those nervous about boats) there is a great 5.5 km (1½ - 2 1/2 hour) hike from Grandmother’s Cove at the near end of the island that takes you along the cliffs overlooking the whales and bergs, to the inn. After years, this is still our favourite way of arriving as it is such a beautiful route. Your bag can be sent by boat.
Lighthouses are in locations where nature is in control. In cases of unfavourable seas, we usually land at a very sheltered cove 5.5 kms from the inn. Guests can then walk the path to the inn or drive in our 6 passenger ATV. This, of course, may cause a delay (sorry). If the weather is so extreme the boat cannot run (VERY rare), you will not be charged for your night at the inn and we will endeavour to find alternative accommodations. No refund will be made for guests choosing not to go out in inclement weather.
