Important to know

To get a good experience it is important that you feel safe, dry and warm.
Remember, the temperature is lower at sea compared to on land. It is therefore crucial to have warm and waterproof clothing. You will not be allowed to participate on the tour without correct clothing.

When you are kayaking, it will drip and splash from you paddle. You should therefore bring some dry clothes in a backpack a long with some food and drinks to secure a good experience.
