safety measures

Getting in and out

You are taught how to safely board and get off a Zodiac (it's easy once you know how). The short course is held onboard the day before the first Zodiac trip.

Zodiac staff

It's highly trained in all aspects, including helping you in and out of the Zodiac, both on the ship's gangplank and ashore.

On land

Staff members are posted at strategic spots to guide and (if necessary) lend you a helpful hand. Some are lecturers and are delighted to answer your questions or volunteer a fact that they believe might interest you.

Medical emergency

Either the ship's doctor or nurse goes ashore armed with medical supplies.
