Your safety on the water is as important to us as your safety under the water, with that in mind you can be confident that whichever Raiders boat you are on, that it is well maintained, seaworthy and is manned by an experienced crew. Both boats are fitted with an array of safety equipment including Life Jackets, Emergency flares, First Aid kits, GPS, VHF Radio & Compass.

Both our boats are available for charter, please email us for rates.
