The vessel we use is a Tornado multi-purpose 8.5 m long rigid inflatable boat designed for hard work and rough weather. The boat has a high bow and provides a safe and dry ride even on rough seas.
These boats are SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) approved by the US Department of Defense and used by Search and Rescue worldwide (SAR). The hull has a double bottom and the rubber tubes are separated into 5 divided chambers making the boat virtually unsinkable.
There are 12 seats for passengers on board. The boat has all the necessary equipment for safe navigation including life jackets for every person on board.
Annually, there are more than 2,500 sunshine hours on Lošinj and its effect is exacerbated at sea because of reflection from the water.
The crew carries basic equipment – first aid, but we recommend to take enough liquid with you. Plain water is the best choice!
Space for personal gear is limited on the boat, but while you are on board, we recommend that equipment and other items that might be affected by moisture and salt are placed in protective waterproof covers or bags.
To avoid sunburn and sunstroke we recommend using high protection factor sunscreen, a lightweight long-sleeved shirt and cap that will not fly away while driving.
On board life jackets are available. Sailing regulations in Croatia do not require you to wear them during the voyage. However, for your safety, we recommend that all non-swimmers and minors wear these jackets during the cruise.
Although we will not go out to the sea during bad weather or if the forecast is bad, the conditions on the sea are unpredictable and can change quickly. In such cases, you will be returned to the port as soon as possible. In order to protect yourselves from wind and rain, we advise you take protective jackets and have some warm clothes, just in case.
