When you embark on the adventure of boat travel, it is vital to equip yourself with essential knowledge to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Here are some fundamental tips for beginners in this exciting activity:

  • Choose Trustworthy Operators: Research and select boat tour companies with good reviews and established safety credentials. Make sure they are certified and have experienced guides.
  • Participate in the Safety Briefing: Before setting sail, pay attention to the safety briefing provided by the staff. You will understand how to put on your life jacket and what to do in case of an emergency.
  • Appropriate Clothing and Protection: Wear comfortable and suitable clothing for the water. Do not forget the sunscreen, sunglasses with a strap so you don’t lose them, and a hat to protect yourself from the sun.
  • Hydration and Food: Bring enough water to stay hydrated and light snacks, especially if it is a long boat ride. Ask the operators if they provide these or if you should bring your own.
  • Know Your Limits: If you cannot swim or do not feel comfortable in the water, inform the guides. They will provide you with life jackets and keep you in safe areas during the ride.
  • Do Not Touch the Equipment Without Permission: Avoid handling any equipment on the boat without the supervision or permission of the guides. This includes the steering wheel, engine controls, and emergency equipment.
  • Stay Seated and Safe: Remain seated and within the designated areas during the ride, especially when the boat is in motion, to prevent accidents.
  • Listen to the Guides: Pay attention to the tour guides’ instructions. They know the routes and procedures to ensure your safety and that of the other passengers.
  • Do Not Separate from the Group: At stops or when swimming is allowed, stay close and visible to the guides and the rest of the group.
  • Enjoy Responsibly: While you enjoy the scenery and the experience, be mindful of the environment. Do not throw trash into the water and follow the instructions so as not to disturb marine life.
