Activities and Tips

Organizer tips

Provisions The meals will be held together, predominantly in thecockpit. Drinks on board (included in charge): during the whole day table water, coffee, tea. All cruises starting by 23.12.2017: during meals: table wine, local rum-based aperitifs, softdrinks and juices. All cruises starting from 30.12.2017: drinks package on request € 145 p.P. payable with contract: during breakfast: additional juice, during meals: table wine or 0,5l beer, one local rum-based aperitif, softdrinks, fruit-juice. You can buy additional drinks on board. You may at any time victual yourself further to your liking. We also do not mind if you bring additional beer or other alcoholic drinks on board. The menu can vary depending on the choice of the local markets as well as the results of the fishing.

Worth knowing about the cabin cruise It is necessary to get a valid passport to clear inward in the different islands. (People with non-EU citizenship please contact us). Prior to embarkation each guest has to pay the "board cash" including entrance fees for marina parks and isles, port and customs charges, water, etc. Please refer to the current pricelist to know the amount of the "board cash". During the cruise the guests usually reward the service of the crew with a tip of € 5 - 7 per passenger per day. The first evening is dedicated to getting to know other guests and to settling in. Keep in mind, that the guests arrive on different flights and therefore board the boat at various times. However we cannot be held responsible if the passenger arrives late due to delayed/cancelled flights. Please be at the meeting point latest 30 minutes before check-in. Even if your skin is used to the sun: note that on a boat the sun radiation is more intense than on land. You will always feel a nice breeze when you are on the boat, therefore the strong sun is often felt too late. Thus, it is even more important to be prepared, for it is very easy to get sunburned or even get a sunstroke if you do not protect yourself from the sun. A sun hat which does not fly off with the first gust of wind is very important. Do not forget your sunglasses either, which are best to be fixed with a string around your neck. A sweatshirt too is advisable, or a shirt with long sleeves combined with long trousers. For the first few days, sun cream with a high sun protection factor should be used. If you take in medicine: remember to take enough of it with you from home. On the islands it would be rather difficult to find pharmaceuticals which are comparable. There are no laws that enforce you to get any vaccines for the islands you are going to visit. Seasickness: catamarans sail in a very stable way and are generally straight. Your captain too will try his best to only pass through calm waters. However it is in the nature of sailing that waves do occur. If you are likely to get seasick, you can discuss with your pharmacist which medicines are the best to take with you for this case.

Sailing maneuvers and life on board To attend one of our cabin cruises, no prior knowledge about sailing and the handling of a boat is expected. One does not have to be sporty in order to take part in this cruise and to get to know the beautiful islands in this way. The captain is capable of handling the yacht completely on his own. However you have the chance to learn something about sailing, even though it is not a trip organized for this purpose. Your active participation in life on board is appreciated. Please remember that this is a sailing trip on a catamaran, not on a cruise ship with a large crew. Life on board is interactive. Depending on the wind and weather during your cabin cruise, you may drive a section under engines. That means that the anchoring place will be reached by the engines and that the sails cannot be hoisted. Mobile on board: Normally you do have reception on your mobile during the trip. However this is not inevitably the case. You should ensure with your provider that your mobile will be active for the region you are travelling through, prior to departure. However, you do have the chance to buy a SIM card upon your arrival, so that you can use your cell phone without problems. You can charge your mobile, photo camera, etc. in the receptacle USB / 220V Plug in the saloon (Navigation). Please do not leave your valuables unattended overnight.

Safety regulation It is strictly forbidden to carry weapons or drugs on board. Please note that the yacht may cross various boarders and that therefore the coastguard searches yachts in the fight against drugs every now and again. The captain has the right at any time to dismiss people from the boat who do not respect the instructions of visiting countries, carry weapons or drugs, disturb the life on board in any way, or put the crew, the guests or the yacht under any kind of danger. The captain in such a case is obliged to inform the appropriate public authorities. In such a case, or if the guest wishes to leave the boat, no traveling expenses will be refunded.
