Any and all information collected on this site will be kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, reused, rented, disclosed or loaned! Any information you provide will be held with the utmost care and will not be used in ways that you have not consented to. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail us.


PRICES: Prices are subject to change. We are constantly updating our prices to keep them as accurate as possible, but sometimes we miss one or two. If your invoiced price on an item should actually be lower, you will be charged the lower price. If there has been an increase or an error in pricing on the web, we will e-mail you with the new price for your approval before processing your order.

WEEKEND DELIVERIES: Please note that while Saturday deliveries are generally provided by USPS Priority Mail, we do not offer Saturday or Sunday deliveries for shipments via other delivery and freight services. This includes expedited shipments via UPS Next Day Air, UPS 2nd Day Air, UPS 3-Day Air, UPS Worldwide Express, as well as comparable services from FedEx and other carriers.

SPECIAL SHIPPING: Some items require Special Shipping. We will notify you of this in bold print in various places before you checkout. In such a case, we will e-mail you with the additional shipping charges for your approval before processing your order.

RETURN POLICY: If you need to return an item, please email weborders@sandiegomarine.com within 30 days of purchase for a return authorization. Return merchandise will not be accepted without authorization.

Merchandise must be in original condition and packaging. Returns that do not meet these requirements may be subject to a restocking fee at our discretion. Return shipping costs will be at the customer’s expense, unless the product is defective. Please provide your name, address, phone number, web order number and e-mail address along with the reason for your return.

NON-RETURNABLE ITEMS: Life rafts, cut goods, clearance items, and with few exceptions, special ordered items are not returnable, unless defective, and then for repair, refund or replacement only at the manufacturer’s discretion. If the product is damaged, you must contact San Diego Marine Exchange within 10 days of receipt of the product. If it is defective, you must contact us within the manufacturer’s warranty period.

WARRANTY: Warranty is limited to that of the manufacturer and is subject to the vendor’s discretion. San Diego Marine does not supply an extended warranty though our business.

BACKORDERS: We will notify you whenever an item is not readily available, out of stock, or subject to a manufacturer’s delay. We will continue to process your order when the back-ordered items become available unless you contact us to disapprove of the delay.

DIRECT FACTORY SHIPMENTS (DROP SHIP): Items shipped directly from the manufacturer must be prepaid at the time the order is placed. Sometimes these direct shipments incur additional service fees imposed by the manufacturer, in addition to initial prepaid freight charges. Items shipped directly from the manufacturer may also incur sales tax if the manufacturer operates a business in the destination state. The customer is responsible for all
fees and taxes associated with any drop ship items. We will inform you of any additional sales tax added by the manufacturer. All taxes and fees must be paid prior to shipment.


METHODS OF PAYMENT: We currently only accept PayPal for online orders. You do not have to have a PayPal account ahead of time. Once you have chosen PayPal as your method of payment at checkout, choose the “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” option to checkout as a guest.

SALES TAX: San Diego Marine Exchange is not obligated to collect sales tax on any orders shipped directly from our California warehouse to locations outside the state of California. Please see DIRECT FACTORY SHIPMENTS above for exceptions.

SPECIAL ORDERS: We are experts at handling special orders. Feel free to contact us with anything you are looking for, but cannot find. Please have as much information as possible regarding the product you are looking for including: a manufacturer, a part number,  or a description such as color, size etc. and we will get back to you with a quote. A 50% deposit is required on all special orders. All freight/handling is the customer’s responsibility. Special orders are non returnable.
