What if it's out of stock?
Snorkel-Mart.com retains a very close relationship with our vendors and the items we offer are very rarely out of stock. On the few occasions that we are out of stock on an item, it is usually because our vendor is also out of stock.
If your order contains an out of stock item, we will contact you for instruction on how to proceed. We do not backorder items. As it is our policy not to charge your credit card until your order has been completely packed and checked, you will never be billed for out of stock items.
We do work very hard at keeping our website up to date, as such we do our best to keep out of stock items off the website or indicate that they are out of stock.
What is the return policy?
There are two types of returns.
- General Returns
General Returns are covered under our 30-day general return policy.
If you have any issues with your order please give us a call first. If you need to make a return, please attach a copy of your invoice and return the unused product with all of the manufacturer's original packaging to Snorkel-Mart.com.
General returns must be shipped in an appropriate shipping container / box. Please ship pre-paid and insured, as Snorkel-Mart.com will not be responsible for the shipping charges either way on general returns.
Exchanges are a normal part of every business, and Snorkel-Mart makes it easy.
If you have received an item that you wish to exchange (perhaps your fins are just a tad too big), just call our Customer Service line at 1 (888) 597-8445! While you will need to pay shipping one way to receive your new item, we’d be more than happy to include a prepaid FedEx shipping label in the box so you may return your unused item! (Note that we cannot accept any items for refund that have been used in water or have been visibly scratched or scuffed. Keep in mind also that Custom Ground Rx lenses cannot be refunded as they are ground specifically for your Rx.)
Does my order come with a warranty?
Absolutely! The majority of Deep Blue Gear products sold by Snorkel-Mart.com come with a 1-year warranty against manufacturing defect, effective from the date of purchase.
Returns under warranty are extremely rare, however should your product be suspected of a manufacturer's defect please call us at 1-888-597-8445 and we will be glad to help you with your warranty issue.
