All participants become part of the crew and help with various tasks on board as; cooking, dishes and loading of kayaks.
If it blows too much, the tour can be cancelled. Too much wind means constant wind over 10 meters per second, but the skipper always has the last word as several factors are to be considered. It seldom happens during the summer that the tour needs to be cancelled.
