IMPORTANT!  TRIP PREPARATIONS

To Wear:

Dress warm, layers are best. Dress warmly regardless of the time of year, since it is always cooler on the ocean than it is on land. Long pants with jacket and closed soft-sole shoes are best.

To Bring:

Bring along anything you will want to eat or drink during the trip. Snacks and sodas are available on the vessel or on the wharf. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats are helpful.  Bring binoculars, cameras, and video cameras if you have them.

Seasickness:

We do not go out if the seas are extreme or there is a storm. However, we will be on the ocean and there is often a swell and/or wind chop. Seasick medication is recommended as a precaution if you have little boating experience. You can pick up an over the counter medicine at any drug store or purchase tablets at our shop as you check in. HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE TAKING TABLETS,  IT IS BEST TO TAKE ONE TABLET OF THE MEDICINE THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TRIP AND THE 2ND TABLET ONE HOUR BEFORE THE TRIP. THE BEST OPTION IS THE SCOPOLAMINE PATCH BY A CALL IN TO YOUR DOCTOR FOR A PRESCRIPTION, PUT THE PATCH ON THE NIGHT BEFORE. FOR THE BEST TRIP, PLEASE TAKE THESE PRECAUTIONS.

Restrictions – People with serious heart conditions, or if you have had recent surgery – you are NOT allowed on our trips. There are no age restrictions
