Our recommendations for a boating holiday with a dog

Vacations with dogs

Dogs love nature and running around. Swim, run, jump – on a boating holiday everything is possible, just moor up and let your dog have fun. You can even use the swim vests* to make sure your dog is safe when paddling.

Your doggy should feel comfortable, at home and safe on board. Take your dog’s favourite belongings along with you: Their bowl, blanket and favourite toy.

*swim vests not provided.

Which boat model is suitable for a dog?

If you have a small dog, the boat type is not necessary for your decision. You can easily carry your doggy on and off board. With a bigger dog, you need to make sure that your dog can easily jump on and off the boat on its own. You might prefer to have the salon and cabin on the same level, without any stairs.


We can recommend: Salsa, Tango, Calypso and all boats of the Vision Series
