A: While there is no on board doctor as part of the crew, The Au Co is equipped with a First Aid Kit and a basic medicine supply. Please ensure you bring adequate supplies of prescription medications to cover the duration of your trip. We also recommend that you bring medicines for colds, fever and diarrhea. Of course while we hope you will not need them, it is always better to be prepared.
Should you encounter a serious medical emergency requiring onshore assistance, our tender can return to the pier and take you to the nearest hospital within one hour. Indeed, the whole boat can be returned to the pier within two hours. If you or one of your cruise companions is feeling ill, please inform the Reception Desk immediately.
