FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What to wear on a speed boat ride?
A: All guests will have a personal suit and a life jacket (PFD). The suit is warm, and also wind and water resistant. In heavy weather, we recommend you to bring a hat and a pair of gloves. We will supply goggles in case of bad weather. We recommend hiking shoes, sneakers, sandals, trainers or barefoot. Anything will work but high heels!
Q: Where to meet?
A: The tour starts and ends in the inner central harbour of Stavanger, close to the Fishmarket
Q: What is the age limit?
A: Persons older than 14 years can join the trip without any adults. Kids under the age of 14 need to be accompanied by an adult. Absolute minimum age is 4 years.
Q: Is it dangerous? Is it extreme? Is it very fast?
A: Since we started in 2006, nobody has fallen over board. Our skippers are very skilled and experienced. We will always do our best to give our guests a comfortable and safe experience. The trip is not a fast-going-extreme ride, but a soft adventure. We have a cruising speed of 30-35 knots (65 km/h). The trip will always be carefully adjusted according to the weather conditions, and the needs and comfort of the passengers.
Q: Can we take photos? Can we bring a bag?
A: Yes, bring your camera or cell phone. There are pockets in the suit for small items. Just remember to empty your pockets after the ride. We have room for a small bag/backpack for each passenger onboard.
Q: What if someone is pregnant or have back pain or other medical issues?
A: The skipper will advise you if you have medical issues. The seats are very soft and the back section of the boat is more calm and comfortable than the bow section. The trip will mostly be conducted in calm waters. Be aware of your own limits!
