The stopping point will be decided on the spot, depending on the sea conditions.
7. What type of boat do you use and if it moves a lot?
We have a swallow, a 13-metre handcrafted wooden boat, with seats to sit comfortably and fully prepared for strolling. It also has a solarium with hammocks and a bar. This type of boat is very stable and safe, ideal for the tour we do, as we can take a closer feeling of the coast. The boat is accessed by a gangway, so that you can comfortably board the boat. This type of boat is very stable, with almost no side swaying, which is what makes it most tiring. It is an excursion suitable for the whole family and all ages. During the journey you will be able to enjoy pleasant music.
8. Will I get wet on the boat?
Not normally, since we're boarding from the port. In any case, we always recommend that you bring suitable clothes to get wet. During the navigation, normally not, but we are in the sea and we have to be careful (with the electronic devices) because when there is a little wind can enter some splash or spray type.
9. What is the capacity of the boat?
Maximum capacity 12 people + crew.
10. Where and when is our meeting and boarding point?
The meeting point is our office of the Club Nautico de Portocolom, although we will also pick you up at your establishment if you are in the above mentioned areas.
11. What should we bring?
We must bring the essentials, since everything we take to sea could theoretically get wet. Although we have watertight bags to prevent water from entering your important belongings.
Sun protection, such as hat, cap or scarf, as we do not have enough on the whole boat. They'll have to hold it tight if it's windy.
Sunscreen, we will put it on before getting on the boat, so we will be protected during the crossing and we will not have to lie down again.
Swimsuit in case we are going to take a bath or if we get wet when going up or down a little. For cloudy days, small children or those who want to swim, a towel or a windbreaker. Although it may seem not, in the sea it is always colder than hot, as the air produced by the boat and the breeze refreshes us.
A little water for those who want, although we always have water in the boat.
Special shoes or flip-flops are not required on the boat.
12. Can I take cameras or mobile phones on board?
You can take whatever you want, although in the sea everything can theoretically get wet or damp, so you are responsible for your belongings. Although we have watertight bags to store your cameras during boarding and disembarkation, once seated in the seats you will be able to make use of their devices.
We take pictures during the tour and in the water, so you can relax and enjoy your routes without worrying about anything.
All photos taken on the route and the scenery of the routes will be posted on our Facebook page. If someone for any reason does not want to be photographed, please let us know and we will respect your privacy.
13. What is the best route and can it be chosen?
Both tours are incredible, in fact, we recommend doing both for their great beauty. Since they are different and we both love them, it is very difficult for us to choose one in particular.
When the sea is good, we can choose either of the two routes, but we cannot guarantee them until the time of the route, due to changing weather and sea conditions. We always choose the option where you can safely enjoy your trip to the fullest. Both routes are wonderful!
14. Can babies, pregnant women, the elderly or the disabled go?
The walks are suitable for all ages, children from 3 years onwards without any problem. Smaller babies consult weather conditions. We do not recommend pregnant women due to the possible vibrations of the boat, let us know and we will pay more attention. For disabled people or people with reduced mobility, it depends a lot on the grade, but you have to take into account that we embark on a ramp, we will try to help you get on with all possible assistance. During the crossing there is no problem as they can be held and sit comfortably in the seats.
15. Will I get dizzy on the boat?
Normally, due to being short routes and not having transverse swaying in this type of boat no one usually gets dizzy, however if it is not safe can take a biodramine half an hour before the route.
16. Do I have to pay in advance? Can I pay by credit card?
The payment is usually made within 15 minutes before the route, in our office information and sale. However, it can be paid in advance and in the event of cancellation the date or time will be changed or the amount paid will be refunded. In the case of groups, 20% will be paid to make the reservation.
17. Is it possible to hire your boat for another activity?
In high season it is difficult to organize special routes, however you can rent your boat privately and we can organize your excursion in advance. Contact us for special sport fishing routes, birthdays, private diving trips, bachelor parties, romantic trips, gifts, etc. Contact us and we will study your proposal.
18. Could you drop us off at a cove and then pick us up?
We don't do the taxi service. Although privately we can accompany you during your stay on a beach for groups and private excursions.
