All the information given here is handed out to you when you get on the boat. You also get a map of the area and the points of interest.
The boat is equipped with all the statuary safety items (life jackets, flares etc), cool box, sun canopy, and fitted boarding ladder.
We give driving tuition for all levels of ability as well as briefing on local information & safety before departure.
Our departure point is located at the foot of the steps 70m past the White House at the south end of Kalami. Look out for the yellow flags!
Please note that a boat driving licence is required for boats with engine power above 30hp.
Due to great demand, especially in high season (July-August) we strongly advise that when possible, you book your boat in advance. Please keep in mind that even in sunny Corfu the weather isn’t always infallible, so to avoid disappointment try not to leave your excursion by boat for the last day!
Please feel free to contact us should you have any queries, wish to check availability or simply check out our 72 hour weather forecast.

Start the engine with the gear in neutral and the boat still tied up.
When engine is running ok untie the boat and take the rope into the boat, making sure the rope is not hanging in the water.
If the anchor is out, pull it up and take it, and the rope, into the boat. Put seaweed back into the sea.
Reverse boat 20-30 meters clear of shore before turning
When travelling at full speed you are required by law to keep a distance of 200 meters from the shore.
Approach your destination from 100 meters slowly. At 12 meters from the shore put the anchor in the sea. Keep the anchor rope out of the propeller. At 5 meters put the engine in neutral gear.
On arrival tie the forward rope to the jetty or shore and pull the anchor line tight, to check the anchor has caught, and tie it to the boat. If leaving the boat for some time, slacken the forward rope a little to let the boat lie clear of the jetty.
Turn the engine off and put it in the tilt position.
When tying up to a beach try to leave the boat with at least 1 meter of water underneath. When the big waves from a passing ship come in your boat will be safe and not hit the ground.
Keep a lookout for and keep clear of shallow water areas.
Always watch out for swimmers and snorkelers.
Do not enter Albanian waters or visit Albania.
Watch for changes in the weather. Return to base if unsure.
Keep clear of big ships, their waves could swamp your boat.
Give way to other vessels to your right.
Please keep within the area limits to ensure a quick and safe recovery service if necessary.
If the wind becomes strong please take down the sun canopy.
Also remember that the captain should avoid alcohol consumption. He is responsible for the safety of his passengers as well as other people at sea.
If anything unexpected happens the first thing to remember is not to panic. Remain calm and follow the following instructions. Many “Help Points” are spread in the area as indicated on the map we give you. You may call the emergency numbers above and we will be with you withing a few minutes.
If you have lost your anchor take note of the spot and return to the nearest service area. Do not continue your journey without an anchor. Phone us and we will come to you with a new one.
Untie the anchor rope from the boat and tie on a marker (an empty water bottle or anything that will float ). Return to the nearest service station and phone for help. Again do not continue without your anchor.
If the sea gets rough put on your life jackets located in the forward locker and return to the nearest safe harbour and phone us with your location.
