Boarding our ships is done via a small gangway and you then descend approximately 10 steps to the lower deck. The gangway is narrow and has grip rails either side.
Wheelchair passengers can usually be accomodated, as we can remove the side rail of the vessel on the top deck and lift the passenger on in their chair. Each passenger is assessed on a case by case basis (eg we cannot take motorised wheelchairs).
Yes we sail 7 days a week from mid-March to October, weather permitting.
