What safety precautions do you have in place ? 


Your safety and comfort is paramount to us. We travel between the mainland and Buvuma Island so we are well protected from large lake swell.

We are always close to landmass and should a medical emergency arise, we have multiple evacuation points. Phone signal is available for the duration of the journey.

On the boat we supply lifejackets for all clients and crew members plus life saving rings. We have a fully stocked first aid kit and fire extinguishers on board.

We also carry a second engine on the boat in case of engine failure. We always assess the weather conditions and may have to delay your journey if there is a large electrical storm on the Lake.
