Australian dollars are accepted but change may not be
available. We recommend that you take small denominations
of Australian dollars and local currency ashore. For
convenience, you should consider changing money onboard
the ship before heading ashore.
There are limited public telephones and no internet access
available in the Isle of Pines. Mobile coverage may be available
as long as global roaming is selected prior to leaving home.
WHAT TO WEAR ASHORE
To make your day ashore as enjoyable as possible, please
wear comfortable flat soled shoes, lightweight clothing and a
hat - and don’t forget your swimwear! You are also advised to
bring sunscreen and bottled water. Remember to take a jacket
during the cooler months. When visiting local villages, huts
and churches please respect the local customs. Males, wear
t-shirts with sleeves - no singlets. Women should wear skirts
or shorts that fall below the knee and cover their shoulders.
Please also remove your hats when entering buildings.
There are a range of tours available for you to really get the
most out of your time in Isle of Pines. Tours can be booked
onboard at the Shore Tours desk and are subject to availability.
Passengers are required to meet at a specific location for each
Shore Tour departure. Please refer to your tour ticket for the
correct time and place.
Coral is an extremely precious marine organism. In an effort
to preserve its natural beauty and habitat please avoid
touching it in all circumstances. Furthermore, just as with
Australia’s beaches, blue bottles can visit occasionally in the
summer months. During your time ashore we also ask that you
dispose of your rubbish thoughtfully.
