Marine Macro Algae Delivery within the UK 

We offer two posting options for deliveries within the UK:

1) Free posting via Royal Mail First Class

Normally 1-2 working days delivery time but due to the Covid 19 virus the delivery times for Royal Mail First Class may take longer than 3 working days currently. We therefore highly recommend to choose the express option as due to the possible delays we can not offer our Full Satisfaction Guarantee for this delivery method at the moment.

This posting option will include a safe water sealed and padded packaging in a small letter size parcel which will fit most letterboxes.
Due to the size of it though we can not add a heat pack to this.

As it will fit most letterboxes there is no need to stay at home to receive. It will not include a tracking code but Royal Mails provides a confirmation of the delivery.

2) Posting via Express Courier

The delivery time will take 1-2 working days. We will provide you a tracking code so you will know exactly where your parcel is. Someone will need to stay at home to receive it on the first delivery try to not void the Satisfaction Guarantee.

Orders where the express delivery option has been chosen or when a special delivery day has been agreed need to be accepted on the first delivery                  attempt as we otherwise can not guarantee the quality of the macro algae on arrival nor replace any algae which has been diminished in transit.
The order counts as completed when the first delivery attempt has been carried out.

Your macro algae will be posted as a weather protected parcel including when necessary a heat pack to assure the safe arrival even in cold weather periods.

We aim to post out all orders within 1-2 working days ( Monday - Thursday morning ).

Should there be an unforeseen delay or if we need to arrange a delivery with you we will contact you by email.

Our aim is to provide you with the best quality macro algae possible!

Marine Macro Algae Delivery within the EU (outside UK)

We post all items within the EU offering the Standard Delivery and the Express Delivery, please choose at the checkout the option you prefer. Please have in mind that the standard EU delivery may take between 4-8 working days, which means that it can affect the quality of the macroalgae. A much safer option is the express delivery, which we highly recommend.

All international macro algae orders will be posted only Monday morning to ensure a speedy delivery.

Please read about our special terms for EU orders HERE

  • We carefully protect and post the algae wet wrapped & sealed in a small postage box. which will fit most letterboxes.
    So normally there is no need for you to stay at home. Just when you order a few species at once we will post them in larger parcel boxes for the best protection to you. In this case, we will contact you, to arrange a delivery day, to ensure that you receive the algae in the best condition possible.  

  • To ensure a safe delivery process we post them free of charge with 2D barcodes, which allows us to track the parcel for you.

  • If there is for any reason a delay with an order item we will contact you by phone or email to discuss.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a shop to visit?

As an aquatic algae farm, we don't have a public shop to visit unfortunately but we are happy to post all our macro algae species within the UK for free to you.

And we are sure you will like your new macro algae addition once received.

How do I know when a algae is back in stock?

You can register your interest on the algae page you are looking for to get an email once it is back in stock or stay informed via our Newsletter, and or to follow us on Facebook, as we will first inform there when our algae are ready to sell again, or when we received new macro algae species.

What means "Regrowing"?

When a macro algae species sells well we have sometimes to take it out of the sale as it will need time to regrow again.

The time for this will vary, as some macro algae species will grow very slow, whilst other - especially various  Caulerpa marine macro algae species grow quite fast.
