Please note that due to sea currents/storms, it may be impossible for the ferry to leave port or we may need to schedule an early departure. In the case that the ferry cannot depart for the island, the trip departure will be rescheduled for the following day on a 3 day weekend. This can also affect our ability to get back to Shanghai in time. If we cannot leave the island we may be required to stay an extra night on the island at an additional cost. Please plan accordingly. Although we have made every effort to schedule the trip at a time of year when the sea is calm, if the trip is cancelled entirely due to currents/inclement weather the deposit cannot be refunded. Please note that this situation is very rare.
