General

Yes, COSTABOATTRIPS most definitely cater to children but of course they must be accompanied by an adult and we strongly recommend that they have T-shirts or some such clothing to protect their skin from the sun. The boat does of course have an excellent sun canopy.

There is not much risk of this here in southern Spain for most of the year. If necessary we can reschedule your trip or give you a refund. However, in the unlikely event of bad weather we will contact you to advise you of the situation and ask what you would like to do.

Yes, COSTABOATTRIPS can stop at a variety of locations along the coast where you can swim as you wish, try snorkelling or try-diving, or just go ashore for something to eat and drink.

At Costaboattrips we always endeavour to look for Dolphins but they’re not always out and about. When we do come across them we can follow and observe them if you wish, but their presence is not guaranteed.

COSTABOATTRIPS are based at the La Caleta Vélez marina located in the province of Malaga, some 35 minutes’ drive from Malaga on the shore of the Mediterranean. Follow Highway A-7 out from Malaga, (direction Motril-Almeria) taking the Caleta de Vélez, exit 274. The port of La Caleta marina is then 3-4 minutes’ drive down the 274 exit towards the sea.

COSTABOATTRIPS are happy to accommodate handicapped people but we just need to be advised in advance so as we can plan for the space we may need.

COSTABOATTRIPS recommends the use of good anti-seasickness medicines obtainable from any local Pharmacy and taken prior to your boat trip. We can suggest, Bonine, Benadryl, Biodramina which are very effective. Or ask in your local Pharmacy.

Then of course there is always SEA BANDS for your wrist which are also effective in alleviating the discomfort of sea- sickness. Usually we don’t go so far out that seasickness becomes a problem and if necessary we can idle along the shoreline near the beach which is usually much calmer.

No, your boat trip is not shared with anyone else. Our boat trips are strictly private for you and your family and those travelling with you as we do not offer any mixed group trips at all.

You can be absolutely assured it will just be just you, your family/friends on-board for the trip along with the Captain and his assistant for the duration of the trip.

The boat uses only the same Captain and his assistant every trip and we do not employ any strangers or any outside casual labour at any time. Ever.

In this way we can keep strict control on the hygiene standards on the boat for the safety of all.

Please see below the health safety standards that we maintain on-board.
