health and fitness

Great Escape cruises are designed so you can do as much or as little as you want. You will need to be able to manoeuvre in and out of dinghies, as this is how we access many of our favourite places. Treks vary in the degree of difficulty and the crew will advise guests accordingly.

Participation on a Great Escape adventure requires that you are in good health. It is essential that any persons with any medical problem and/or related dietary requirements make them known to us well before departure.
