While in general we’d have to say yes, our trips are suitable for families with young children, and we try to encourage young families by offering a €10 discount for all children and students. However, we’d add this proviso. Our trips are a minimum of 4 hours duration and some children get easily bored, so you are the best judge as to whether your child is suitable for such an adventurous trip in the North Atlantic searching for whales.
Please note if your child gets sea-sick, bored, wet and/or grumpy, it is up to you to entertain them for the remainder of the trip, as turning back to port is not an option. There are no nappy changing facilities on board and the toilet will not be suitable for such a “precision exercise”. Our overall advise is that our trips may not be suitable for children under 5 years of age, especially outside of spring/summer months. Some common sense needs to be applied here.
