refused to provide refund or reschedule after given wrong directions by new employee

Review of Crab Island Excursion

  • Catherine USA Jul 11 2018 06:35pm

    Due to a new employee giving us wrong directions we missed the entire excursion. The Booking manager Cynthia of Sun Venture cruises refuses to refund or reschedule us for our next trip to Destin even after explaining in full detail what occurred. our excursion (3 tickets) was booked for the last day of our short vacation to destin. We were dropped off at the address on the confirmation email given from trip shock by a shuttle our hotel provided. We arrived 45 minutes prior to departure with our cooler,floats, and handful of bags with towels etc. After walking down the gravel road we see there are several kiosks/booths, buildings for different venders I called their booth directly asking for help because i was not able to find their booth. The Booth employee told me after i explained where i was that i must be on the wrong side of the harbor walk dock and to follow the dock ALL the way down to the end of the dock and i would run into their booth. I even confirmed what i was walking towards/past and she assured me i was walking the right way. We walk 15 minutes to the entire opposite side of the board walk carrying armfuls of items in 90 degree weather to be told "bad news oops now your really on the wrong side of the board walk" and to go back to the exact spot we just walked 15 minutes from. We then Ran back to the other side and arrived at 2:03 when the boat was already pulling away from the dock. come to find out the board walk dock doesn't even go all the way down directly to their booth as she stated , you have to get off the boardwalk, walk through construction fences and then to their booth. That would have helped if stated in the first place. The new employee seemed to feel bad knowing she sent us in the wrong direction and offered to reschedule us for the next day at 10am as a courtesy. she said she would schedule us for that next morning and if we couldn't make it to let her know. I spoke with her directly afterwards and informed her we were not able to adjust our travel arrangements back home so she then provided me with her managers number to further discuss a refund but i would not be able to speak with her until 3 days later because she was off until that tuesday. i spoke with cythia and after a few phone conversations she informed me they are not willing to refund or reschedule me. her excuse was that it was my responsibility to get there and its only a COURTESY that the employees give customers directions. OBVIOUSLY they are fully aware there is an issue with customers finding the address because she told me herself this happens "every single day" because someone can't find the location. and they have a no refunds or reschedule policy. i questioned if her employee was willing to reschedule me for the next day why wouldnt they honor rescheduling for my next trip to destin. she had no idea the employee even offered that to me but then used that as an excuse after i brought it to her attention and using the reason that i didn't arrive twice and NO THEY AREN'T GOING TO REFUND OR RESCHEDULE. Completely unprofessional.

    Our favorite part of our Destin trip!

    We had such a great time last year that we booked again with Sunventure and brought extended family with us this time. It was a big hit with the entire group! It's the perfect amount of time to explore Crab Island.

    Awesome! Must do!!!

    This excursion was awesome. The boat was clean and comfortable and the time allowed at Crab Island was enough to enjoy it. (I would have liked another hour :) but it was enough to for the experience.) I would/will definitely do this again!! I have already recommended it to friends and family coming in the next 2 months! It's a must do!! Thanks! Norma & Ed
