What you'll do

Beppu excursion:
We'll meet by Yume Town, 10 min from a boat.

Greeting taking a bow! and go over all the necessary safety instruction such as life jackets, toilet usage, what and where items are located on the boat, and answer any questions regarding the tour.
All the members will be required to wear a life jacket per Japan Coast Guard.
I will have adult and child life jackets onboard.

After that we board the boat and prep sail.
After exiting the harbour area on the boat we make our way sailing in the bay of Beppu, soon you will see the scenic view of Beppu Bay surrounded by all the hotels and houses on the hill. It will be least 2-3 hours excursion.

As we raise the sails and turn the engine off, you'll immediately feel the relaxation set in and feel it is about time to open some bottles! You are more than welcome to open any bottle you brought, cooler box and set of wine glasses are preped.
There is plenty of time to take pictures! Enjoy posting pics of yourself with a glass in hand.
If any guests ask, I can give some basic sailing instruction, and maybe even let them pilot the boat if they get used to.
Important. You are no longer guest. By the time you apply for the experience, you become a member of our sailing team. We will keep you informed what we plan for future sailing, cruising, domestic and overseas race like ones in Thai, Singapore, Taiwan nd etc.
Other things to note
Pls let us know if you have any special requests, larger group, private tour, or sailing lessons. We have more than ten excursion plans such as sunrise, sunset, stay over night and anchoring plan, travel to other cities, so on
