What should I wear?
It is important to feel comfortable while onboard – so wear clothing that allows you to move freely and feel relaxed. We strongly recommend boat-friendly footwear, closed-toed sandals or sneakers are best. Flip flops are accepted at your own risk. Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen and sunglasses.
When deciding what to wear, if in doubt – bring it! Better to be over-prepared than under-prepared and there is plenty of space on deck for extra clothing. Make sure to check the weather in advance so that you’re prepared for the day, whatever the weather!
What time should I arrive?
Where do we meet?
Will my trip be cancelled because of the weather?
What if I am prone to motion sickness?
What happens after the trip?
Once back at the dock, you can take some time to grab a drink at a local watering hole, or you can wait around while your fish is gutted and cleaned for you, so your day ends with ready to eat fish!
Want to eat your fish right away? Take one of your fish to ‘King Wah’ or ‘The Swordfish Club’ restaurants and for a small surcharge they will prepare your fish just for you - from Ocean to table, you cant get fresher than that!
