every seasafari rib must be Polish Register of Shipping approved then must receive a safety certificate similar to MCA coding. Liferafts are only required if you go more the 3Nm off shore.
Upon departure the skipper radios to the harbour master , reports name of vessel , how many persons on board and ETA return or next port of call.
The harbour master may allow or may refuse departure due to weather conditions or any other reason.
There is no sealife along the Polish coast only one long sandy beach with no tides.
"White knuckle" rides is the name of the game and the season is from mid June till the end of August
