Each trip listing has a suggested kit list. This is a good starting point, but you are welcome to bring additional kit.
How do I get there?
Each trip listing gives advice on how to get to and from your adventure. Usually, any travel to and from the vessel is your responsibility; we’ve teamed up with a global travel operator to make this easier for you. If you are unsure of anything regarding travel, please contact us to help you.
Will I be able to book my trip cheaper if I go to the operator directly?
No, not at all. At the time you book you’ll be paying the best price possible.
Do I need to have any sailing experience?
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.
