Swimming and Island Walking
The waters are beautiful and clean and the waterway is generally very sheltered. Guests can swim only when the boat is anchored or secured to a mooring. Swimming off the yacht is at the guests own risk. If you wish and time allows, you may walk on the Island, again, at your own risk.
