If the guidelines have changed since you booked and you are no longer able to travel, then please email us to arrange a postponement or refund.

Keeping you safe

  1. When you book your Day Boat, you will receive a Booking Confirmation email with links to the boat manual and an online preparation course for the Designated Skipper. With this preparation work complete, we will be able to shorten your training time on the day to practical training.
  2. When your party arrives at the marina, you will gather at the named meeting point for your boat opposite the marina office. Your entire party will be directed to board your boat and remain inside, until the Designated Skipper has received any necessary training from us.
  3. You will need to provide contact details for each member of your party for the government’s Track and Trace system.
  4. Once the skipper is happy at the controls, we will wave you on your way.

Cancellations due to Covid restrictions
