There are a couple of things we would like you to know before coming on board with us. Such as: a Powerboat is an adrenaline-experience, people with neck and back problems are discouraged book with us, children are welcome and a lot more!
To inform people well we have listed some of the questions we get asked the most below:
1. Will I feel motion sickness on the boat?
Motion sickness and the Powerboat is a combination we rarely ever hear. Our boats are characterized by their high speed and their low height so they do not rock. Our guests often tell us that they do not even think about sea sickness because the experience is so amazing, they simply forget about it! When the sea is bumpy or if you have a sensitive stomach it could be that you feel a bit nauseous but we rarely experience this on board.
2. Are children allowed on the boat?
That depends on how old/tall they are. Our guidance is 1.40 meter (4,5 feet) and an age of 6 years. We would like to draw your attention to the waiver that has to be signed for you and the child(ren) in your (parental) care. In our experience children love being on the Powerboat and we will always pay extra attention to them when the waves are high and/or the winds are strong.
3. Can I be the captain on the boat?
We understand that people would love to be captain on the Powerboat. Unfortunately it is not possible to let someone else other than a licensed captain behind the wheel. Our insurance company covers potential damage only when a licensed captain is behind the wheel. The Dutch license is not valid in Curacao and most tourists are not in the possession of the Curacaoan license which would make it very irresponsible if we would let someone else be the captain. We can let you take a picture behind the wheel though, no problem 😉
4. Are we going to see dolphins?
Sometimes we see the dolphins four times per week and sometimes we don’t see them for several months. We cannot guarantee that you will see them but if we do see them we always head straight for them. For the real dolphin experience you should visit the Sea Aquarium at Mambo Beach!
5. What is the most fun trip you have?
Our top-selling trip is the Beach hopping & Blue Room adventure, because it combines action with relaxing and a lot of exploring. The Blue Room is a highlight here as well as swimming with sea turtles. But for beach lovers we recommend Klein Curacao as this little piece of paradise is perfect for tanning, relaxing and snorkeling. For snorkeling enthusiasts we recommend the 2,5 hour snorkel & sightseeing trip where we show you the famous Tugboat.
