wet landings


Windstar allows guests to get closer to the world by often sailing to remote ports for untouched natural beauty. Some of these ports require a wet landing, which is an active and mobile adventure. However, you will always also have the option to stay aboard the ship and enjoy the luxurious onboard amenities.

What to Expect

Windstar utilizes Zodiacs, rugged inflatable boats designed to take guests safely to remote ports with no docks. A wet landing consists of boarding a Zodiac from a floating dock on the yacht and riding it from the ship to the shore. Once you reach the beach, you will disembark directly in the water.

How to Prepare

To prepare for the wet landing, make sure you bring water shoes, water socks, etc. to help you walk in the water and sand. Some landing sites may have rocky bottoms. You will most likely get wet, so be conscientious of your attire. You may also want to bring a ziplock or watertight bag for your phone and camera to keep them dry.

After disembarking, adventures await on shore!
