Yes. All boats on the INSTAYACHT platform meet the strictest international safety standards. We check that all boats coming on board fulfil all legal requirements to be seaworthy and captains who will drive you are fully qualified and experienced. We also require for extra safety features, as we do not allow boats to travel after sunset and before sunrise (only during day-light) and we do not rent-out boats without a captain (no ‘bareboat’). The Greek coast-guard is very well equipped and ready to act for any emergency.
* eat something light before traveling; do not travel with an empty stomach but also do not eat a heavy, greasy and salty meal
* look far away
* do not read
* do not get in a cabin
* sit in the back(behind the skipper)
* sit straight and do not lie down
* stay busy
While you can of course carry your luggage, try to keep it simple. There is of course space in the boat but it is limited. If you have too many things better ask directly the owner of the boat you booked prior to your trip.
Also, pack some light food (e.g. crackers, sandwich etc.) and beverage (water, fruit juice, soda).
