Whether or not the Rescuboat Expedition is suited for your kid is decision we leave with the parents. Whether or not it is suited is strongly dependant on the child itself. We do not have a strict minimum age requirement. However, we do not recommend bringing babies or toddlers. It is recommended the child is able to sit up straight in a proper manner by itself.

The Seal Experience a relative calm ride and suited for most younger children. The skipper will always adjust the sailing speed for the youngest passenger.

The Rescueboat Experience is more diverse ride is designed to have a few higher speed sections. Bringing younger children could mean that the speeds will be kept low during the entire ride. On this ride the skipper will always adjust sailing speeds on the youngest passenger. 

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on the Rescueboat.

Dogs are allowed on the bigger cruise ship the MS Silverwind.
