What will happen after I have booked a voyage?
You will be asked to pay a deposit to confirm the booking and informed when the full payment will be due. You will also be asked to return a personal details form for each member of the crew, which will tell us about any special dietary or medical requirements and enable us to produce an emergency contact list.
Leaders of group bookings will normally be contacted by the skipper a couple of weeks ahead of your trip to answer any questions and discuss special requirements, your time of arrival at the departure port, and the plan for the voyage.
If you have booked an international voyage, we will provide you with an information pack containing recommended travel arrangements to get to/from the boat and any other pertinent details; e.g. the Tall Ships in port programme, etc.
Will my son/daughter be safe?
We pride ourselves on our excellent safety record, which is a result of the ongoing risk assessment of our activities and thorough training of afterguard. We abide by all relevant legislation and the requirements of The Scout Association where these are higher, including in relation to Child Protection. Read more about safety precautions and training via the link below.
Who is responsible for the boat and crew during the voyage?
The skipper has overall responsibility for the vessel and its crew for the duration
of the trip. He/she is assisted by one or more appropriately qualified mates, and
the boat maintains regular contact with a shore contact in the UK. Our afterguard
are all experienced and professionally qualified sailors -
How do I contact Adventures Offshore?
