What do I need to know:

The Greta website has lots of information about the trip. In particular, please check out the what to wear and Covid-19 pages. Please note that Greta passengers board and disembark at their own risk via a near vertical ladder attached to the Harbour wall. Passengers must ensure that they wear suitable clothing and flat footwear. A safety briefing is given on board prior to sailing.
