It’s our sincere intention to operate boat tours without any cancellations to make our current, as well as our new guests and business clients happy. However, things do not go according to our plans every time. In such instances we unfortunately have to cancel one or more boat tours.

Mechanical or similar technical issues are the most common cause when we have to cancel as many boat tours as we need to resolve issues. The safety of our guests is our most important priority. We only use vessels that are sail worthy.

Sudden crew member illness or injury can result in boat tour or tours cancellation. Luckily this does not happen very often, but when it does we are fortunate enough to have some spare crew members on stand by and can bring them in very quickly.

Scheduled events, scheduled maintenance works or other kind of undelayed works on the river are rarely reason for boat tour or tours cancellation. When it does come to such a situation we have to partially or in wholly cancelled one or more boat tours on the Ljubljanica river.

The weather conditions and subsequent weather-related conditions on the river are the most common factor that influence our scheduled boat tours. In case of a really bad weather, dense fog and/or strong flow of the river Ljubljanica we have to cease our operations. Too strong flow of the river is our main reason for boat tours cancellations. We call it big time force majeure.

We operate boat tours when the river flow (slovene pretok) value is below or a bit over 100 cubic meters per second or 26417.2 US liquid gallons per second. The maximum value that we still can be on the river is at 120 cubic meters per second or 31700.6 US liquid gallons per second. When there’s a chance of heavy debris coming with the river flow we cease our operations even sooner due to safety concerns.

We make our operational decisions based on informal up-to-date river flow value received from measuring site called Postaja Moste 1 – Ljubljanica that is managed by Slovenian environmental agency (ARSO), a part of Ministry of Environment and Spatial planning of Republic of Slovenia:
