Everyone on board should have a lifejacket and everyone should be informed and know at all times where the lifejackets are stored. Small children (5-6 years old) and non-swimmers should wear their vests during the trip. Always check with your agent/fleet operator if they provide life jackets for small children because many chartered boats do not have them on board or they will not be the right size for your kid. We recommend you bring your own lifejackets for your child and make sure they wear them at all times, even when offshore. For safety regulations on board ask the skipper.
