the professionnal area
Because we believe that informing means also protecting,Espaço Talassa has favoured since its creation the welcome of scientists, photographers and people working for radio and television. Consequently, we has set up specific logistics at reduced prices, which enable you to optimise your trip in the archipelago, even if it is a short one. The state of the sea, the light, the species watched, the kind of work are all the criteria taken into account at the time of boarding. As a professional, you can choose the right moment to put out to sea. If one day, you decide not to go, you will not pay the total of the rent but only a 100 euros set price.
Example : semi rigid 28 feet boat (Valiant PT 850) :
- From 26/03/16 to 29/04/16 and from 01/10/16 to 05/11/16 : 280 euros per half-day (3 hours) and 540 euros per day (6 hours).
- From 30/04/16 to 01/07/16 and from 27/08/16 to 30/09/16 : 370 euros per half-day (3 hours) and 695 euros per day (6 hours).
- From 02/07/16 to 26/08/16 : 420 euros per half-day (3 hours) and 790 euros per day (6 hours).
- Extra hour : 65 euros
Terms of rent
Are included : look-out service, Espaço Talassa skipper, fuel, insurance, taxes.
In case of cancellation, even at the last moment, Espaço Talassa will only deduct a set price of 100 euros.
Booking : 30% of the total amount and the balance at the end of the trip. Be careful : since 1999, audiovisual and research works are subjected to obtain a permit.
Obviously, we will help you for administrative applications to the local authorities.
