Our Safety

The Boat

A boat, like any other form of transport, requires qualified personnel to drive the vehicle. Our skippers have passed exams, and the boat has been through annual safety checks. It is designed to allow you to enjoy the trip safely. In the unlikely event of an emergency, we carry life jackets, life rings and an inflatable raft, along with a first aid kit, winch, and flares. Our boats have been fully risk assessed and we have carried out extra assessments specifically tailored to our trips.

The boat has a secure handrail all around the guest area, however, there are some gaps where passengers get on/off the boat, and where the anchor can be dropped (Shown in Red) . We ask that at all times you maintain an awareness of your surroundings and those around you. If the boat is moving, we ask that you hold onto a handrail (not another person).

Children (Future Sea-life Ambassadors!)

We care deeply about all of you, and especially those who are coming on a trip with your children. It isn’t just that they are the future of our planet, and as such, we want to give them an amazing experience, but we also want to keep them safe. We ask that they aren’t allowed to run around and play on the boat and that you as their guardian or parent help us to manage their experience and keep them safe. Please ensure they do not lean over or stand on the edge of the boat. We carry a selection of life jackets that can be provided on request should you want your child to wear one for the duration of the voyage, but once they are wearing the jacket they must not play with the fittings.

Due to the nature of the trips, we have set a minimum age of 6 (six) years of age at the time of boarding. We need you to let us know if you have younger children as we will assess each clients needs seperately.

Clients with special requirements.

Should one of your party need some additional support, please ensure you notify us prior to the trip and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you are pregnant, we will do everything we can to keep you comfortable but ask that you acknowledge that you join our trip at your own risk. If you have concerns about the movement of the boat, please know that we have wheelhouse seats, which will not stop you from enjoying the trip, or a central pontoon on the deck that you can sit on. Our guides will always be vigilant and enquire as to how you are. We can provide steps onto and off the boat from the jetty and are always available with a helping hand providing you with extra support.


Make sure you bring additional layers so you can stay comfortable and warm. Also note that the boat deck may become wet, and consider this when choosing your footwear. It is always better to have layers you can remove, and don't worry, we can stow them in the wheelhouse.


Prior to booking, please contact Simon if you wish to discuss this. As a general policy we do not allow dogs on the boats, however, exceptions may be made if certain assurances and criteria are met. Please be aware that if we have to return to the port due to a stressed animal you may be required to provide recompense to other parties who have had their trip cut short.
