As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.
A zodiac is used to transport passengers from the boat to the mainland, with landings taking place at piers (dry landings) as well as on beaches (wet landings). Zodiacs can sometimes be awkward to climb in and out of, but a sense of humour and can-do attitude is all you need.
This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be quite compact, but you will be spending the majority of your time above board in the open air.
Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sun screen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.
Please note that smooth sailing is dependent on the weather, so itinerary changes may occur at the last minute if the weather becomes unfavourable. If any changes are made, you can trust in your knowledgeable skipper to choose an alternative route or activity.
Due to the size of the yachts, sound carries easily from one side to the other and can wake your fellow travellers. Please keep this in mind if you’re planning to have a late night.

Travel through Intrepid takes all the fear away from travelling alone that can sometimes be daunting.

Bring a small backpack. The cabins are designed for sleeping only. Fill it with these essentials; Swimwear and more swimwear. Flip flops are all the footwear you need. Environmentally friendly sunscreen and soap. Drink lots of water, everyday. Enjoy the shaded places onboard. Help out when you can and get to know everyone. Underwater camera or gopro is a must. Remember to open your hatch when anchored to maximise airflow through your cabin. Close hatches before travelling and before the rain 😂 gets in. Enjoy the experience and be thoughtful of the people and animals you interact with. Take photos, scenery, individual and as a group. Remember cash is king on the islands and is needed for tips at the conclusion of the trip. There is no wifi, embrace this. If you feel sick find a windy, shady place and watch the world go by.
