Is a Day out on Monty B suitable for me?

| 0

Mobility

Whilst you do not need a high level of fitness to enjoy a Day out on Monty B, a sailing boat is an active environment and you need to consider whether it is suitable for you. For example, we will usually be picking you up in our sturdy tender (RIB) so you will need to be able to get yourself in and out of a small boat.

A good way of assessing this is whether you can sit down on the floor and get yourself up again, unaided.  Or, for instance, if you had to, could you climb out of a window in an emergency? If the answer to either of these is “no”, then unfortunately this trip is not suitable for you. This is for safety reasons.

To access the toilet below deck, you will need to get up and down the equivalent of a short step ladder.

We will go out of our way to accommodate older folk with restricted mobility or people with a disability (please email us and we will be happy to advise). However, if your mobility or balance is affected due to obesity, this trip is not suitable for you.

We reserve the right to refuse entry to the boat to anybody who we feel could endanger themselves or other people.

Children under 8 years old

Babies are fine on the boat as they generally sleep for the duration. However, toddlers and very young children find the restriction in their movements around the boat difficult to cope with after 1-2 hours. For this reason, we do not usually recommend this trip for children under eight years of age.

In less busy periods, we can sometimes organise a shorter two-hour trip which is more suitable so please contact us in this instance.

Dog allergies / fear

If you have an allergy to dogs that you can’t medicate sufficiently, this trip is not suitable for you. If you are worried about being with the dogs, this is another matter and we are confident that a day spent with Mollie and Louis is enough to cure anyone of dog phobias! They are very laid back and friendly towards towards all our guests, especially children.

Food allergies / intolerance

Please advise us in advance of any food allergies / intolerance or if you require a special diet and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
