Pilots 

You must contact our pilots directly for their up-to-date booking information. Pilots are taking booking for 2015, 2016, 2017+. The pilots have quite a few places reserved well in advance.

All of our pilots are highly qualified, and pilot full licensed escort boats all using the new and enhanced Class A (25 watt) transponder on the AIS system, rather than the older Class B (5 watt) system which listening boats can choose not to have appear on their AIS displays.  All of the escort boats are registered to at least Class 2.
