They will show you the ropes . Alternatively, if you just want to enjoy the sailing and the scenery, you can sit back and relax. Keep a look out for Dolphins, seals,and if lucky, a Basking Shark or Minke whale.

Lifejackets are provided for all on board.

In addition to breakfast and lunch we serve a two course dinner in the evening. The menu will be dictated by the fresh ingredients we can source and the weather conditions on the day. Non alcoholic drinks will be available all day as required.

Even in summer, there can be a cold breeze at sea so we suggest you bring warm layers and that all important sun hat. You should also come prepared with water proof clothing just in case. Don’t forget your phone or camera to capture the stunning scenery and amazing wildlife. it is important to bring sun screen to protect yourself and if you think you might need it – consider a travel sickness remedy before you set off – just in case.
