The boat we use is a Gemini RIB. It is 35 feet and has two Yamaha outboard 300 hp engines. The boat is designed to withstand very rough seas and has extremely good seafaring properties. It is equipped with comfortable and secure seats, this to make the boat trip as pleasant as possible. The boat is completely open, so that one gets a unique nature experience close to the sea. We can accommodate 12 passengers. For larger groups, we have the opportunity to hire in more RIBs.
We recommend trousers and long-sleeved sweater for the trip. Please dress according to weather and season. In the spring, autumn and winter, we recommend wool clothing. The temperature is about 10 degrees lower due to speedy travel on the fjord than in air on land.
Security is the highest priority on all trips. On all trips with RIB, you will be wearing a floating suit and life jacket. First aid equipment is always available.
Feel free to bring your photographic equipment on our tours. Bring protection to the equipment if it rains.
In the boat, each passenger has storage space for a smaller bag under his seat.
