Preparing for Your Journey
What to Wear
Temperatures on the water can be much chillier then those on land. Any breeze coming off the fifty-ish degree ocean is bound to cool things off. Wear and bring layers, more then you might think necessary. Even on very warm days, light cotton wear that covers the skin can offer protection from the magnified effect of the sun’s rays as they are reflected off the waters surface.
Sun glasses and hats are recommended, but care must be taken not to lose them overboard.
Finally, wear comfortable, soft soled shoes. Do not come barefooted.
What to Bring
Cameras, binoculars, sunscreen, and snacks or entire picnics, depending on the time and duration of the planned outing. There is always a jug of water on board, but you are welcome to bring your beverage of choice, including alcohol, as long as you recognize the captain’s responsibility to monitor its consumption.
