Some advice

Casual wear must be adapted to the weather conditions. Sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat in case of sunny weather, windcheater, waterproof clothes and even an umbrella if the forecast is for rain. Warm clothes for the Dusk or Dawn trips. Eventually, some of you may need some mosquito repellent for sensitive skins. Binoculars recommended.

All the trips are subject to the weather and sailing conditions which only our experimented guides and pilots can judge.
