Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

Dress for the weather on the day, taking into account a significant wind chill factor. In winter the more wind protection the better and gloves are great, while in summer a wind proof layer never goes amiss, especially on the trips before lunch. Remember to mind your hat though, as it may blow away.

Yes, you are welcome to bring a small camera or phone. You need a secure place to put this while we are at speed as your hands will be busy holding on. Your jacket pocket is best, as this will be easy to access when we stop at the photo opportunities, while staying protected from any stray splashes. Please note that we travel at high speeds, and any valuables you bring along are at risk of getting damaged.

No. Unfortunately, there is limited space on the boat and nowhere to secure loose items. It's best if you can leave extra bags in your car or accommodation. If you have come by foot and need your bag for later, however, we do have a small amount of space in our office to store your backpack or handbag.

No weather is bad weather and any day on the water is a good day, but if it is pouring with rain, we will do our best to rearrange your trip to miss the rain. We will get in touch with you if the weather is looking extra wet so please just make sure when you book you give us your correct contact information.

We make no promises you won’t, but our highly skilled drivers will do their best keep you from getting splashed, especially in winter. In summer though just let us know if you would like your wild ride a little more wet!
