Is the experience suitable for young children?
Yes, from the age of 3yrs.
All children must wear the child life-jackets that we supply. The Skipper will take sea conditions into account before allowing infants to travel.
What should I wear?
Generally it is a lot colder at sea than on land. Layers of clothes should be worn as opposed to one or two thick layers. It is also advisable to wear headgear and we would ask that our passengers would wear flat-heeled shoes. Dover Sea Safari can provide you with splash gear however we are not liable in the event of your own clothes underneath getting damaged. We will of course also supply the all important mandatory life-jackets.
What should I do if I have Covid symptoms on the day of my trip?
If you or any of your party are experiencing symptoms of Covid that will prevent you from attending, we must receive written notification no later than 9am on the day of your trip to email@example.com to qualify for rescheduling. We will require proof of a positive test if you are requesting to reschedule within 24hrs of your departure.
