Affordable Ferry Transfer Points
We are the flexible, convenient, and cost effective ferry option. All our craft are purpose-built for local conditions.
DAILY Lucinda departures to Hinchinbrook Island (Northern & Southern End)
LUCINDA DEPARTURE: To get to your ferry departure point, turn left at the Lucinda pub and follow the road until you come to the Dungeness marina and boat ramp. Times will generally be 8am from Dungeness.
Safe and dry pick-up off the beach. No heaving boats crashing against jetties to injure you, just walk on dry-shod.
For the current emergency period: Clients for whom we hold bookings have been invited by personal email to tell us whether they want us to hold their booking as a credit pending the reopening of the Trail, or refund. At present the service is suspended.
For "Normal" Times. That is, Pre-COVID-19 (and hopefully post-COVID-19) emergency period...
We give a full refund for whatever reason that you cannot hike the trail.
However, you must cancel your camping permit for the dates you have previously booked as it is imperative that other people have the chance to fill vacated positions on the trail. You then need to forward your confirmation email of your cancellation from National Parks to Absolute North Charters in order for us to be able to process a refund.
If National Parks themselves close the park we waive the need for you to forward their cancellation confirmation.
There is a fixed number of permits issued for people allowed on the trail at any given time. So please consider other people's desire to hike the trail in the event you need to cancel.
