Please read the Onboard Regulations carefully:

  • Sailing on a sailing boat there are some simple rules to respect to allow all guests to have an experience in safety and tranquility:

  • USE of WC on board.

  • It is forbidden to use the toileton board during the sailing. The toilet can be used when sailing with the engine or when the sea is calm. During stops it is not possible to use the toilet to defecate, but only to urinate. To use the bathroom on board you must always ask the crew for permission so that they can instruct you on how to use it. IT IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN to throw toilet paper, sanitary towels or any other material into the toilet. Use the appropriate waste bins provided. Guests on board are advised that in the event of inattention and breakdown of the on-board toilet, the cost of repairing the toilet will be charged, which amounts to €150.00.

  • MODERATE SMOKING ON BOARD. Smoking is allowed ONLY WITH SAILS LOWERED (closed), AFT, with prior permission from the Captain and one person at a time. It is forbidden to throw cigarette butts into the sea. All light drugs are prohibited on board. E-cigarettes are permitted.

  • MODERATE CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL ON BOARD We advise our guests not to consume alcohol excessively, in order not to feel bad and not to spoil the experience of the other guests on board. It is forbidden to bring personal alcohol of any kind on board.

  • FORBIDDEN TO USE OILS and TANNING SPRAY OILS – Please use ONLY NON-OILY SPRAYS or CREAMS, because oils grease the boat and make the glass resin slippery. This becomes dangerous as you might slip into the sea.


  • NO TO SCREAMING, CHALLENGING or LOUD MUSIC on board, so as not to disturb the tranquility of all guests.

  • IT IS FORBIDDEN TO ESCAP ON THE DECK while we are sailing with sails open, in order to avoid falls.

  • FORBIDDEN TO DIVE FROM THE BOW or from the lifelines (metal wires of the boat) because it is dangerous. You can dive from the stern.

  • BEWARE OF MOBILE PHONES, OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES or PERSONAL EFFECTS On board you will find the special pockets for mobile phones. It will not be possible to recover mobile phones or other personal items if they fall overboard.

  • SEPARATE WASTE COLLECTION on Board - Let's safeguard the Sea and Nature!

  • SEA SICKNESS - If you are not used to sailing a boat, we advise you to take a tablet of XAMAMINA, against seasickness, 2 hours before departure. Your well-being is your responsibility with respect for the well-being of all on board. In group tours we will not be able to go back to port to leave people who suffer from seasickness. In exclusives it is at the guest's discretion to return to port and finish the tour earlier.

  • CHILDREN Children are welcome on board, but parents must be responsible for their safety and security. Please take your children back if they put themselves or other people on board at risk.

  • NO TO FISHING - Fishing in any form is prohibited on our sailing boat, as we respect the sea and its inhabitants!

  • SAILING is a lifestyle, on board all the participants collaborate with the crew to navigate and will make sure not to hinder the work on board. Sailing means respecting the rhythms of the sea and the wind and enjoying the journey, not reaching the destination as soon as possible.

  • LIVE THE SEA in RELAX! Our excursions are made to experience the sea in total tranquility and serenity, leave all routine behaviors at home, get out of the routine of your life and enter the experience itself in contact with the sea and with the elements of nature.

It reserves the right to disembark people who do not comply with the regulations or who endanger the other participants in the tour or make navigation problematic.

TIPS & TIPS to the captain and the team.

  • On the boat it is a good habit to "leave a TIP (tip)" to the skipper and crew.
