For the entire family

An active outdoor activity to enjoy the sea and the coast like never before. Suitable for families with children and also for groups of friends.

Frequently asked questions:

What do I need to bring with me?

It is recommended to bring some warm clothing (the temperature at sea is normally lower than on land).

Also, to avoid damaging the joints of the ship’s wooden deck, shoes with heels of thinner than 4 centimetres are not allowed on board. For comfort, we recommend that you wear sport shoes.

What happens if I'm late?

You will see the ship from the shore, sailing away.

We’re sorry, but we need to keep the schedule out of respect for the other people on board.

Boarding starts 5 to 10 minutes before departure, please be on time.

What if the excursion is cancelled due to bad weather?

If you have a reservation and your trip gets cancelled due to bad weather, we will notify you via email at least 3 hours in advance, and we’ll give you the opportunity to choose a different date or obtain a full money refund.

If we don’t get in touch, that means that the excursion is still going on. Atyla is a sturdy seagoing vessel, and the weather has to look quite bad for us to cancel. If it’s just a bit cold or a bit rainy, get a nice jacket or a raincoat and show up, it’s going to be a fun adventure.

What happens if I need to cancel?
What if the excursion I want is sold out?

We recommend you to find a different date available. If that doesn’t fit, you can also get in touch, and we’ll let you know if there are any cancellations, but that rarely happens.

Is this activity recommended for families?

Yes, it definitely is. It’s a fun and interesting activity where both the children and the parents will enjoy doing something active and outdoors in nature.

What to do if I need to get in touch urgently?

We try to answer fast if you use our contact form, but it’s that’s not enough, you can call +34 644 503 471.
