Trips are weather dependent and may occasionally be cancelled in high winds for the comfort and safety of our guests. Trips will not generally be cancelled due to rain, in fact a seascape in the rain can be quite beautiful. Full refunds will be given if the trip is cancelled by Appin Boat Tours.
What to wear/bring
Dress for the outdoors. Wearing an extra jumper/fleece, a waterproof jacket and a woolly or fleece hat will do just fine - out on the water it can be more comfortable with hat and gloves even on a summer’s day. We ask that you wear flat or non-slip footwear, no sharp high heels please! We highly recommend that you apply a high factor sun screen and lip salve as appropriate.
All passengers are provided with life jackets.
And of course we recommend that you bring your binoculars and camera for maximum enjoyment!
