Guests have the opportunity to go ashore to explore a local community, site of historic interest or to head off for a walk twice a day. The boat always anchors for dinner, choosing a sheltered and scenic spot to spend the night, often with the chance of a stunning sunset. Our vessels drop anchor offshore which provides tranquility and seclusion. Guests can go ashore after dinner for a stroll or perhaps try some fishing. Waking up at anchor to the stillness and serenity is breathtaking with the option to go ashore before breakfast. The crew assist guests onshore but walks are self-guided. Our "area bibles" provide information on the highlights of each stopover for guests to explore.
The Boat Tender
Transport to and from your vessel and the shore is by boat tender, therefore guests require a certain level of agility and to be comfortable with this method of transport. Our tenders are Pioneer Multi, very versatile spacious boats with a unique bow door system, like a landing craft, which makes going ashore on beaches very simple. The tender is also available for fishing, laying creels and for short exploratory trips along the coastline when the boat is at anchor. A favourite is to be dropped off by tender on one part of the coast for a one-way walk and getting picked up again at the end.The boat tender is very safe; the trip ashore lasting a few minutes. Stepping from the boat into the tender is by three steps on a fixed stair and help is always on hand with clear safety procedures.
