Welcome to the tropics! Although our winters are unbeatable in terms of weather, our summers can be hot and wet. November –
March can be extremely hot and humid, especially downstairs on a boat. Unless you are accustomed to living in this climate, you
may find it slightly uncomfortable, especially at night when you are sleeping. Please be prepared for this
WATER, TEA, AND COFFEE:
We provide tap water however it isn’t cold and some people don’t like the taste of it. During our summer
months, we strongly encourage you to bring bottled water. We recommend 2 litres per day. Tea and Coffee breaks are generally in
the morning and afternoon.
If you are not quite sure whether or not, you may suffer from Travel Sickness please make sure that you are prepared. As our
trained crew will assist as much as possible in making you comfortable but they are not allowed to provide you with any
medication to help with the problem.
