Some Trip Preparation Tips
STUFF TO BRING: Bring a light lunch and or snacks along with beverages to keep you hydrated. As is the case with any out door activity, you may want to bring sunscreen and sunglasses. If motion sickness is a concern, we recommend that you bring an over the counter medication such as: Dramamine or Bonine.
Please do not wear shoes that will mark the deck of the boat. Tennis shoes and sandals with light colored soles or boat shoes are fine, however dark colored or black rubber sole foot wear is a big no–no. Thank you for your cooperation.
