We use sturdy, flat bottomed boats called Zodiacs for landings. As there are few harbours in the areas where we sail we use Zodiacs for our landings on the remote shores. Our motor-vessels are equipped with a stairs-like gangway for boarding these Zodiacs. The sailing-vessels s/v Noorderlicht and s/v Rembrandt van Rijn are not equipped with such a gangway but instead passengers board the Zodiacs via a small ladder on the side of ship. This is not very demanding but passengers should be aware that in order to join the landings they have to be able to do this.
