Practical information


_ We highly recommend comfortable and practical clothing and footwear, according to the season. It’s always a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket.

_ Before the trip we recommend that you apply sunscreen, especially on children.

_ We advise you to bring water, especially if accompanied with children. And in this case you may also bring something light to eat, like some biscuits.


_ Follow the instructions given by the crew (skipper or marine biologists).

_ Circulation in the boat is only allowed when the boat is immobile or navigating slowly, otherwise you should only leave your place when the crew tells you to do so.

_ If you need to use the sanitary facilities, you should inform the crew in order to reduce the speed of the boat.

_ The use of life jackets is not obligatory, however if you feel uncomfortable do not hesitate to ask for a life jacket.

_ Before the trip, you will be given some indication of security (for instance the location of life jackets).

_ Trips will only take place in sea conditions that provides safety, and under no occasion this principle will be challenged. This decision is taken by the skipper of the boat.
