Useful tips for a safe trip
Pay close attention to the briefing and demonstration given by our staff. Do not hesitate to ask any question that may arise.
Get informed about the weather conditions. Consult our staff about the places which are preferable to visit depending on the weather conditions.

Check the rescue and fire-extinguishing means. Put life jackets on children and those passengers who don’t know how to swim.
Make sure you have at least one charged mobile phone or a car charger of 12volt.
In any event, the boat is equipped with a special system, so we can track its position at any time.
To operate the boat
Lower the motor to the water, with the help of the “trim down” button.
Make sure you have put the “quick stop” safety string around your arm.
Make sure that all the passengers are seated.
Make sure the lever is in the vertical position, meaning in the idle position. Only then you can start the engine.
The skipper should always take into account the maritime traffic, the depth of the sea and the existence of bathers. Keep on the right-hand side of canals and harbours.
Do not go further than 2 nautical miles from the coasts. (For boats given without a license)
Beware of the reefs – the water slightly foams there.
Never go across the bow of a moving boat.
Keep a safety distance from the coasts and the bathers.
If you need to reach a coast, reduce your speed to the minimum and lift the motor (“trim up”) if the water is shallow.
Do not use the anchor in deep water, but only if you can see the seabed. The rope you will let loose should be about three times longer than the depth.
Before anyone dives into the water, the skipper must make sure the anchor has “dug in” and the engine is off.
Do not forget that drinking and boating is just as dangerous as drinking and driving a car.
