Powered by a 225hp Yahama engine, Firebrand IV is fully MCA licensed, Category 4 (up to 20 miles offshore), insured and coded for 12 passengers and has a full complement of safety equipment, including life rafts. Life jackets are provided. Firebrand IV trips depart from St Mary's Quay. All passengers are provided with fully auto-inflatable life jackets and waterproofs are available on request. If you are prone to seasickness, it would be wise to take a motion sickness pill, although our guests rarely get seasick. We advise our guests to use sunscreen with a high degree of protection due to the transparency of our air and the reflection from the sea. We also suggest that our guests wear warm and windproof clothing, as the trip is like riding a motorbike as we rush from place to place, and the sea can be chilly. Due to the nature of the trip there are occasional bumps and bumps due to possible sea conditions, but the boat is steered in such a way as to minimise any jolts. Guests with back or neck problems, overweight or pregnant guests should inform us at the time of booking so that we can discuss the appropriateness of the trip with them.
