Océane’s cruises take place entirely inside the lagoon, sheltered from the swell of the open ocean. These cruises are thus most often calm and suitable for those who fear seasickness, both on the East and West Coast. Note that the West also benefits from shelter from the wind. Should you prefer to take precautions against possible seasickness, it is recommended you take preventive medication at least 30 minutes before boarding.
We are fully equipped with lifejackets, a first aid kit and a boat on standby for emergencies so your children and infants are in safe hands. Our staff and crew also receive training of international standing to better maintain the highest standards of safety on board.
