Safety

Out of this nettle, danger, we pluck this flower, safety. {Henry IV Act 2 Scene 3 ~ William Shakespeare}

The Moray Gig takes safety very seriously.  
We operate within the Atlantic Challenge Code of Safe Practice for the use Atlantic Challenge gigs and are licensed by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority to operate in Findhorn Bay.

The gig is accompanied by a custom-built 6.8m RIB (rigid inflatable boat) when afloat with clients.
