How to be prepared for your first time cruising by boat!

Your first boat cruise is coming but you have to be appropriately prepared for this fantastic experience to fully enjoy the journey you constantly dream! We’ve gathered some basic tips, advices and instructions to guide you in your first time cruising by boat in order to prevent possible risks.

So, let’s dive into and learn some valuable information for a smooth time in the boat!

Prepare only the essentials

It is very important to not pack unecessery things so you can make the best of the space you have on the boat.

After a long day of diving and swimming into the sea-bottom, you will only need a changing set of clothes and clean towels.

Sometimes, first time boaters experience feelings of seasickness (don’t panic it can happen to anyone!), because they are not used to the motion of the sea. In this case, all you need to do is to add some medication or chewing gum in your backpack.

Lastly, obviously don’t forget to include your passport or an identity card, and your travel map as these are very important travel documents when you arrive and you’ll need them in your check-in!

Protect yourself from the sunlight

When you imagine a boat cruise, you probably think of exploring heavenly seashores and hidden treasures and then laying and sunbathing under the hot sun.

However, as you know the temperature gets really high in Greece during summer and the last thing you need to worry about during your holidays is getting sunburned!

So, if you want to get tanned fearlessly, remember to bring the sunscreen, your sunglasses and a big hat or a cap. Especially, when you cruise by boat in August you need to protect yourself from the sunlight!
