Frequently asked questions
Is sailing dangerous ?

This leads to the choice of the ship and cruise program, adapted to the access to the sea in certain weather conditions. Also, the skipper takes the right to cancel the port exit if weather conditions are unfavorable for this. In addition, before the start of the cruise the guests will be instructed on safety aboard, it will allow the participants to feel confident during the entire cruise. Following the instructions from the skipper ensures your total safety on board.
