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.
What about currency fluctuations?
Trips are priced in the operator’s local currency and we charge you a conversion to that amount correct at the day of charging. See Payments for more details.
What do I need to wear?
Each trip listing has a suggested kit list. This is a good starting point, but you are welcome to bring additional kit.
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.
