Tips

Water sports are truly thrilling and make for an adventurous experience; however, do keep the following tips in mind for a safe and fun experience:
  • Always make sure to have your life jacket on and check if it is fitted properly before starting any water sport in Batam.
  • If one knows how to swim it is always an added advantage, however, don’t need to panic if one does not know how to swim, just inform the guides in advance and they will take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety.
  • Always follow the guidelines and instructions given by the instructor for a safe and memorable experience.
  • Also remove spectacles, sunglasses, watches, or any jewellery item since there is a high probability of it getting misplaced during the water sports activity.
