Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Does everybody have to wear lifejackets?
A:

All children under 13 must wear lifejackets at all times when out on deck.  We have lifejackets with permanent bouyancy for children.  Older children and adults must wear lifejackets when instructed to do so by the skipper but it is not necessary to wear lifejackets when angling or sitting down enjoying a cruise.

Q: How many children can I bring?
A:

For children under 10, we recommend that there must be one adult for every 2 children.  Therefore, if there are 4 adults present, they can bring a maximum of 7 children.  We would recommend that there should be 2 adults present for a party of up to 9 children between the ages of 11-16.  The maximum the boat can carry including the skipper is 12.

Q: What should I wear?
A:

This will depend on the time of year and whether you are going angling or on a sight seeing trip.   It is always advisable to bring warm clothing and waterproofs even in the summer as it will be chillier at sea.  Sun protection is reccommended in the summer months as it is easy to get surnburnt without feeling hot!   We suggest that people wear flat, soft soled footwear such as trainers.  Anglers might want to bring wellies or other waterproof footware.  However, we can accommodate people in the wheelhouse (which has heating) if it gets too cold/wet to sit out on deck.

Q: How do I pay for the trip?
A:

Currently the options are paying by bacs transfer, by cash or by cheque but hopefully we will soon be in a position to accept debit and credit card payments.

Q: Do I need to have a full party before I can make a booking?
A:

Not necessarily.   We will either quote you a price per person or for the whole boat.  However, depending on the type of trip booked we may need to fit individuals and small groups in with other groups to make a trip viable.
