We provide waterproofs & lifejackets; you should wear warm clothing (fleeces are good!) and footwear. Hats & gloves are sometimes advisable. For the longer tours soft drinks & snacks are suggested. If you wish to bring cameras and binoculars please do; but we can not be responsible for their safety.
The boats are assessed for safety annually and are rated for journeys of upto 20 nautical miles from any safe haven in daylight & favourable conditions; additionally “Bennan” is rated for upto 10 NM from any safe haven at night in favourable conditions. All crew members are qualified First Aiders.
Passengers will be briefed about weather and safety before setting out on the tour.
