Frequently Asked Questions

1 Jun 2017 | Last update: 28 Jun 2019

Please note this FAQ is specific to trips on Gemini. For trips on other boats, please read the information provided on the booking pages.

How can we make our final payment?
For trips on Gemini you can pay by bank transfer (see bank transfer details) or you can pay the skipper at the start of your trip. You must bring cash if you will pay the skipper - we do not have card payment facilities on the boat.
For trips on other boats please check the instructions you received when making your booking.
How fit do we need to be?
The cruise is a relaxing trip, not a work-out, so fitness isn't an issue.
However, to board the boat you do need to climb a couple of steps up the boarding ladder. If you have any problems with mobility, let me know, and I will arrange to collect you from the fuel dock, where you can simply step aboard.
Can we join another group?
No. All trips are private and it is not possible to join with other groups.
Is there a toilet on board?
Yes, but it can be a bit of a challenge with the boat moving through the waves! Probably best to go before the trip.
What about seasickness?
Gemini is very heavy for a boat of her size, which makes her a particularly steady boat. But if you are sensitive to motion sickness, I recommend a medicine called "Stugeron" (generic name - Cinnarizine). You can get it over the counter at any pharmacy. Take one tablet about an hour before sailing.
If you do feel queasy on the boat, the best advice is to lie on your back and close your eyes (yes, really!) for a few minutes. It works wonders for most people.
Can we bring food or drinks with us?
Yes! You can bring anything you like. Beers, soft drinks and water is provided on the boat, and also napkins and disposable cups, plates, and cutlery. You can also order a bottle of cava during the booking process, but you are totally welcome to bring your own if you prefer.
What about smoking?
No problem. Feel free to smoke on deck. No smoking inside the boat.
What footwear should we wear?
Something comfortable and practical. High heels should be avoided, both for your own safety, and to prevent damaging the wooden decks.
Can we stop for a swim?
Yes! If the sea is calm enough. It usually is, especially in the morning. It should be warm enough for the braver swimmers in late May. The rest of us might prefer to wait until mid-June for the temperature to rise a little more.
Can we play music?
I don't have a music player on the boat but sometimes people bring a player with them and that's perfectly OK. I'm hoping to fit a player to the boat this summer.
Do we need to know anything about sailing?
Absolutely not! The skipper will do the sailing, while you do the relaxing! But if you do want to get involved in sailing the boat, that's fine as well.
I carry full public liability and accident insurance. I do not have any coverage for clients' personal belongings.
Where can we leave a review?
If you enjoyed your trip on Gemini, I would very much appreciate it if you can take a moment to write a review on TripAdvisor or Google

Afslappende 3 timer væk fra Buzz

En meget dejlig eftermiddag med skipper Stefan og en velkommen flugt fra den varme by.

Meget professionel

Vi reserverede for nylig denne Tour. Processen var meget ren og nem. Vi lavede et depositum og havde bekræftelse med det samme. Vi kontaktede kaptajnen gennem hele processen, og han kom altid tilbage til os hurtigt. Desværre, den dag turen var planlagt vejret var ret dårligt. Vi kontaktede kaptajnen ~ 1 time før og rådgivet om vores vejr bekymring. Kaptajnen fik ret tilbage til os og gav os mulighed for at annullere. Vi desværre annulleret og kunne ikke omlægge som det var vores sidste dag (han tilbød at omlægge til den følgende aften). Jeg fik en bekræftelse af annulleringen og tilbagebetaling inden for få minutter. Jeg tilbød at have ham til at holde depositum på grund af at føle sig dårligt, og han nægtede at acceptere. Hvis vi er tilbage i byen, vil vi prøve igen.

Fantastisk solnedgang sejl

Min kæreste og jeg reserverede en solnedgang sejl med Dave. Tvillingerne var et smukt gammelt skib. Vi nød en 3 timers sejl rundt i havnen. Vi bragte vores egen vin ombord og afslappet med visningerne.

Fantastisk første gang sejlads oplevelse!

Vi ledte efter mere unikke ting at gøre i Barcelona end bare de regelmæssige turiststeder, og så reserverede vi denne sejltur. Det var langt en af vores foretrukne og mest afslappende dele af turen. Vandet er smukt ud for Barcelonas kyst og udsigten over kysten var fantastisk. I midten af april, vejret var smukt og min lys jakke var alt, hvad jeg havde brug for en cover-up over min Sundress.

Fantastisk måde at slappe af mellem turistaktiviteter i Barcelona

Vi nød et dejligt sejl. Smukt vejr og dave's hjertelighed gjorde det endnu bedre. Sejlet var en stor pause fra Rush af kører rundt om byens turiststeder.
