How does Dokk work?
Dokk is primarily a webstore for boating services. You can easily browse and book services in the Dokk webstore. Services are paid with a credit card when you make the booking. When you have paid your booking you will receive contact and other information about your upcoming boating experience as an email. Booking is safe as the Dokk cancellation policy allows you to cancel your booking up to 3 days before your reservation (exact cancellation rules can be found on your Terms and conditions page).
In addition to boating services, Dokk sells boating related products that enhance your Finnish boating experience.
Do I need special qualifications to participate?
The majority of Dokk services are charter tours (with a competent skipper and possibly other crew taking care of the boat) and are planned so that anyone can participate, even if you have no prior sailing or boating experience. If a service is intended for more experienced sailors or boaters, this will be clearly mentioned in the description of the service.
For bareboat charter services, the service description will details any special competence requirements that you will need. In Finland however, the authorities do not require official certification to handle a boat.
Are Dokk services safe?
Yes, all Dokk services are as safe as boating and sailing can be. The Finnish waters are comparatively sheltered and the weather is easy to forecast so there is little risk of being caught out in bad weather. Also the shore and the closes harbor is always close at hand in case something unexpected happens.
Dokk boats and skippers follow the rules of the Finnish authorities for charted services or adventure services. All the Dokk skippers are season boaters and know the Finnish waters and conditions well.
Boating and sailing activities always contain elements of risk. Please be sure to check our Terms and conditions!
