Frequently Asked Questions

What will I do on the cruise? It all depends on you! Hop on over to nearby islands, take a dip in the middle of the sea or just chill onboard while waiting for the sunset. Because this is a private cruise we don't have to stick to a schedule or specific route - weather and conditions permitting we are happy to cruise wherever you want.

What should we bring on our private cruise? You are welcome to bring any snacks and drinks, and don't forget your bathing suit if you want to get wet! Lots of sunscreen too. We provide drinking water and towels on board. 

Do you provide food and drinks? We include complimentary drinking water, and for a small fee we provide soft drinks and tidbits. If you require additional catering please let us know during booking. Our guests sometimes prefer to bring their own snacks and drinks on board, feel free to do so!

What activities are available on board? Besides swimming and snorkeling (we have masks), we also have a kayak on TROPIKA, and you can wakeboard on TANAK. You can also bring your own fishing gear if that floats your boat ;). We'll ask you in advance which activities you're interested in so we can make sure to bring the equipment along. 

Is there an age limit for kids? On TROPIKA, there is no age limit! Our air-conditioned cabins are super comfortable for kids of all ages - you can even bring your stroller on board. For TANAK, we recommend only bringing children aged 3 years and older.

What is your Cancellation Policy? In case of operator cancellation due to weather or unforseen circumstances, you will receive a full refund. If a guest cancels between 72 hours and 24 hours before the trip, we will retain 50% of the trip cost. Guests cancelling after 24 hours will forfeit the entire price of the cruise. However any cancellation fees will be returned if we are able to fill the opening left by the cancellation. Contact us by phone to cancel or inquire about a cancellation. No-shows will be charged the full price.

Do you welcome parties on board? There's no better way to say this -YES! We want you to have as much fun as possible. Both our boats have a Bluetooth Audio System for you to play your own music on. This is your private charter, you can turn up the volume!

How 'private' will my private charter be? We want you to relax at your own comfort and discretion, and our experienced crew are respectable hosts - we put our guests' privacy above all else. We will always ask for your permission before posting photos of your trip on our Social Media pages. But if you decide to show-off what an awesome time you had with us, don't forget to tag us at @TropikaKK (Facebook) and @CharterTropika (Instagram)!
