Even on the finest day, as the ‘Holly Jo’ picks up speed, the breeze can be surprisingly chilling. Please ensure you bring a windproof/waterproof jacket for protection. During warm weather we suggest people apply sun block before heading out and bring a broad hat with a generous rim, as the sun and wind can take a toll on pale Celtic skin!
Although tea and coffee can be made in the wheelhouse, this is a low priority for us when searching for whales. So we suggest you bring along a hot flask of your favourite brew and any snacks or a picnic as fresh sea air can make you very peckish. More importantly being on the water for 4-5 hrs can leave you quite dehydrated, so we suggest you bring fluids or a flask of tea/soup etc.!
Don’t forget to bring your camera, spare batteries and a zoom lens and if you are a voucher holder, you will need to present your voucher on the day.
We do not take dogs/pets on board (unless they are trained assistance dogs)
