Precautions for safer activities

Here at Stromma we continue to work to reduce the spread of Corona and create a safe environment for our guests and staff onboard our boats. We have reduced the number of passengers onboard and are extra vigilant when it comes to disinfecting all surfaces onboard. It is important to us that we create a safe environment, not only for our guests but also for our staff onboard our boats. If you are interested in reading more about our regulations regarding Corona you can read about it here
