Yes, the boat carries life jackets, however, as per the MCA rules the passengers are not required to wear these life jackets during the voyage. The reason being they are what is called a positive buoyancy life jacket and very restrictive during your trip or charter. IF SOMEONE WISHES TO WEAR A LIFE JACKET DURING THE TRIP, WE WILL GLADLY ACCOMMODATE THEM. We do not give out Personal Floatation devices as these are not fit for the open waters and should only be used during water sports activities such as kayaking, jet skiing windsurfing etc.

Hopefully not. When conditions are good, we rarely experience seasickness—unless you’re a very poor traveller. The design of the boat offers a more stable platform minimising the roll effect. We will endeavour to ensure you won’t be sick, however, we can’t guarantee it.

We’re unable to provide medical advice. However, we can offer the following suggestions to help prevent seasickness.

  • Avoid alcohol.
  • Eat well in advance of your trip.
  • Try sea sickness tablets.
  • Travel motion wristbands.
  • Keep looking at the Horizon.
In the event of being sea sick speak to a crew member early and advise them you are not feeling well. They will assist you in keeping warm but not overheated and hydrated. We also suggest that you do not spend too much time relaxing (about 4 to 5 minutes), get up and begin walking around to warm yourself and get yourself feeling comfortable. Again keep well hydrated and warm until you are recovered fully.

Weather dependent and trip dependent, for hourly tours we would recommend to carry a jacket of some sort, no matter how warm it might be, temperatures are lower at sea.

For charters and longer trips we advise bringing extra clothes to keep you warm if the temperature drops bring a backpack and pack accordingly.

While footwear is compulsory on our boat, you can wear any type you like—flat or heeled.

We suggest the following:

  • A hat for both warmth and as a sun visor
  • Suncream
  • Light snacks and water
  • Jacket or hoodie
  • Camera
  • Binoculars
