    All our boats are fully covered for damage and damage to other property or vessels for claims over from 2250€ (£1865) to 3250€ (£2695 or CA$ 4920). All our boats are covered fully for third party liability.
    Option 1 – The refundable damage deposit
    On arrival at the base, you leave a refundable deposit of from 2250 to 3250 euros which will only be exercised if the boat or any of its equipment / inventory is returned damaged or lost, or in the case of any accidental damage to third parties. This will not be the case if there is evidence of gross neglect, which is excluded from our cover under our insurance policy.
