Events Schedule
Each of our events described to you prior to the trip have their unique characteristics. With weather and other external circumstances being a big deciding factor for our events (like the motor yacht and catamaran boat trips), we can't always guarantee events will happen more than a few days in advance. However, we’ll do our best to reschedule for other days, so every week gets all the planned events until the end of the stay. Some important info and quick tips on booking and payments.

If at check-in, your group ratio does not match the booking ratio, you may be charged a €200 administration fee for each guest that requires adjustment.
