Generally, no – beginners are as welcome as experienced sailors on the majority of the trips we list. To be sure, read the description of your trip thoroughly; if particular sailing ability is required, it will be specified there.
Are Kraken sailing trips suitable for solo travellers?
Generally, YES! Solo travellers may travel alone, but on arrival they become part of the crew. If a trip isn’t suitable for solo travellers you’ll find we will say so on the trip’s listing page.
Can I cancel a booking?
Each sailing operator has its own cancellation and refund rules. Please see our Deposit and Cancellation policy for further details.
Do I need specialist sailing insurance?
Generally yes, but we recommend checking with your current travel insurer. We can also direct you to appropriate insurers who will be able to provide the right cover. Contact us for our recommendations.
