Q: Is it dangerous? Is it extreme? Is it very fast?
A: Since we started in 2006, nobody has fallen over board. Our skippers are very skilled and experienced. We will always do our best to give our guests a comfortable and safe experience. The trip is not a fast-going-extreme ride, but a soft adventure. We have a cruising speed of 30-35 knots (65 km/h).
Q: Can we take photos? Can we bring a bag?

Q: What if someone is pregnant or have back pain or other medical issues?
A: The skipper will advise you if you have medical issues. The seats are very soft and the back section of the boat is more calm and comfortable than the bow section. The trip will mostly be conducted in calm waters. Be aware of your own limitations!
