Be Sure to Bring the Following:

  • Appropriate Clothing – dress in layers. During the spring and fall it can get quite chilly and downright cold in the winter. In the summer it can get hot but always bring something to cover your whole body to avoid severe sunburn and ruining the rest of your vacation. Also, bring rain gear if the forecast predicts a wet day.
  • Food – lunch, snacks and drinks. Alcohol is welcome with moderation. PLEASE, NO BANANAS - they are bad luck!!!
  • Sunglasses – polarized is best.
  • Boat Shoes – No black sole shoes please. If you do wear black soles, remember to tip your captain as it will take him an extra hour to remove marks from the boat.
  • Motion Sickness Medication – if you are susceptible to car sickness you should take the motion sickness medication Dramamine - 1 pill the night before and another 1 hour before the trip. I recommend the patch - you must go to the doctor for a prescription but it's well worth it. Sorry, there are no refunds for seasickness.
  • Sunscreen - the Florida sun will peel the paint off your car - just think what it will do to your skin. SPF60 or higher is recommended.
  • Camera.
  • Cooler - if you bring a cooler for your food and drinks, please no large coolers. Only small, single handheld coolers will be allowed onboard as we have very limited space. All your gear must fit in a 14” x 32” x 16” deep space.
