We strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance before departure. Make sure it covers all the activities you plan to do on your vacation.

Check that your passport is valid and keep it for the duration of your trip in a safe place. Make sure you have all necessary visas.

Take photos or make photocopies of your most important travel documents, and keep them in a safe place, such as a secure data storage site.

Tell your friends or family about your travel plans and itineraries, and leave contact information for someone to contact in case of an emergency.

Take enough money for the whole stay. Make sure you have access to emergency funds.

Be sure to note the contact details of the local Consulate in case of emergency.

Find out what the Consulate can or cannot do to help you.

Act responsibly.

Know the safety instructions for your boat and equipment, and report any danger to a member of the crew.

Bathe safely

Swimming is fun. However, there are real dangers to be aware of during your vacation. Always pay attention to the local safety instructions for swimming: flags, currents, areas where swimming is authorised. These rules differ from one country to another. Before bathing, you need to consider many factors. Here are some useful tips for swimming safely all year round, whatever your destination:

Make the most of your time in the water

Take the path back to the swimming pool before leaving to get up to speed. If you have kids, get in the water with them so you can keep an eye on them while having fun. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times when in or near water.Look around you. Always be  aware  of  your surroundings and stay  on the lookout for possible risks.

Check warning flags and signage on the beach.

Beware of dangerous currents: they can be very powerful. Ask locals if there are any known dangerous currents or tidal hazards and avoid swimming in these areas. Learn to spot a rip current.

Beware of underwater hazards, such as reefs, rocks, sudden changes in depth and marine life.

Only dive in authorised places. Do not dive from rocks, piers, seawalls or furniture/decor near the pool.

Always obey pool rules, safety signs and local signs.

Check the pool layout to know where the deep and shallow ends are, especially before jumping or diving. 

Never feed fish from your boat or in swimming and snorkeling areas.

Snorkeling Safety Tips

Be confident in the water: You need to be an excellent swimmer to be able to snorkel. Life jackets are available on board. Feel free to wear one if you want to snorkel and aren't entirely sure of your swimming skills. On board each boat you will find a flotation buoy/diving flag. This will make you visible in the ocean. Boats passing by will easily spot you and you can rest on this floatation buoy if you feel tired.Take your time choosing the mask, snorkel and snorkel fins that are right for you and learn how to use them correctly. Complimentary masks and snorkels will no longer be provided for your cruise; only fins will continue to be. We recommend that you bring your own mask and snorkel, not all of our destinations offer them for purchase.

 

NEVER dive alone! Unexpected emergencies can happen to anyone, so it's best if you can help each other. We invite you to take your phone with you in a waterproof pouch so that you can call for help in the event of an emergency.

Stay close to the boat: If a snorkelling area is assigned, you must stay in the designated area and spend hours safely in the water. Staying in the buoy line means the area is not only safe for swimming but also boat-free. If there are no signs for snorkeling, ask locals about conditions, currents, and things to see. Before snorkeling, check possible entry and exit points, make a plan for getting out of the water if you feel tired, unwell, or have no energy to return to the position you entered.
