Laptops are a must – and any other hi-tech gear that you might want to bring along. Space is limited aboard the catamaran, so please leave your hard-shell suitcases and trolley cases ashore. Dress is casual – so pack light.. and leave your suits and cocktail dresses behind! You’ll spend most of your time in shorts, t-shirts, swimwear.. and bare feet!
3. Who will benefit most from a Coboat experience?
Coboat is for professionals from all walks of life; entrepreneurs, remote workers, digital nomads, location independents, writers, photographers, designers. We also welcome startuppers, small teams or larger groups. Are you curious to know what it takes to lead life as a digital nomad? If so, this could be your ticket!
4. Can I join even if I am not an entrepreneur or digital nomad?
7. Are vegetarian, vegan and special diets available on board?
8. What happens if I want to cancel a booking?
Unfortunately if 50% of the booking fee has been paid as a deposit we cannot offer a refund.
However, if 100% of the booking fee has been paid and you notify us at least four weeks prior to departure, you can receive a 50% refund.
We cannot give refunds without notice of at least four weeks before departure.
Please check the Terms and Conditions for more.
10. Can I change the dates of my booking?
Because of administration costs and the risk of us not being able to sell the place we have to keep a fee if it’s :
at least four weeks before the trip: 40% (50% in total)
less than four weeks before the trip: 90% (100% in total
If we are successful in reselling the ticket again we will refund the fee.
See the Terms and Conditions for more.
13. Are there any physical requirements for the trip?
Due to the nature of the experience and in the interest of safety we ask that you are a competent swimmer and of good physical state. If there is any doubt we will need you to notify us so we can make a decision.
We feel the trip is not suitable for pregnant women beyond 6 months.
It is with regret that due to the access restrictions and layout on our vessel wheel chair bound guests and some physically disabled people cannot join.
We care about your safety, so if you are in any doubt please read the Terms and Conditions or email us at [email protected]
14. Where should I fly and when will you tell my the meeting point with the boat?
Details about exact locations of embarkation and disembarkation are announced on the website as they become available.
These locations will be as close to domestic airports as possible. However, local land or sea transfer might be necessary.
We will always inform you of the closest international airport within reach of the trip.
Local/Domestic airports will be announced closer to the trip date, no later than 1 week before departure.
Be advised that the final location of pick-up (usually by dingy) may be announced at short-notice.
15. What makes Coboat a social business?
Coboat is also our calling. It is our not for profit cause, to engage with change makers from different cultures and seek out partnerships to support our social mission to rid the oceans of pollution – for good. Learn more
2. How does the internet work?
Along coastlines, we use 3G/4G network. The tech provided by our partner CELLweaver can combine up to four 4G/3G connections into a single data stream with speeds of up to 400 Mbit/s and thus ensures the owner has a great internet connection when on board within up to 10nm off the coastline.
Users can expect a realistic average speed of 40 MBits/s in 3G areas and 160 MBits/s plus where there is 4G.
We are aware that reasonable internet access is an essential feature of our coworking experience and undertake sufficient efforts to provide internet connection.
However, uninterrupted connection cannot be guaranteed at all times.
6. Will Coboat organise its own projects?
When opportunities arise, Coboat’s crew will organise various events and projects. These may include collaborations onboard – or on land with local organisations and communities. As the first mobile (and floating!) coworking space, we will make pit-stops at hubs located in port cities. Imagine dropping by a digital nomad networking event at a beachfront club in Thailand.
14. Can you cater for vegetarian or vegan diets?
Yes, we will try to meet everyones dietary requirements. Vegetarian options should always be available. However, because we are a vessel we must take stock and sometimes we maybe in regions where food supplies are limited, so it is hard to guarantee diets like the Vegan diet.
Please approach us with any dietrary requirement questions to [email protected]
2. Is it dangerous to be aboard the Coboat?
Coboat is a sizable and seaworthy vessel, captained and maintained by a professional crew. Our navigation schedule is planned to avoid stormy weather (as much as possible) and to reduce risk. First aid assistance, oxygen and medications are all available onboard. Each new Coboater is also welcomed onboard with a safety briefing.
3. What insurance will I require?
It is highly recommended to have additional insurance cover such as travel, accident, cancellation, luggage and trip-interruption insurance.
Our insurance does not cover the accidents or injuries that may occur on the trip.
See the Terms and Conditions for more.
