USEFUL INFORMATION & TIPS FOR A PERFECT MARINE EXCURSION

A good breakfast is key!
Very often people will go on their first trip fearing they may get sick and will skip breakfast or lunch assuming that no food in their stomach means they won’t get sick. In fact, the opposite is true. An empty stomach produces acids and can actually make you sick. Eat a good carbohydrate breakfast and rather avoid fatty or fried foods.

 

Keep hydrated
Don’t get dehydrated! When on the ocean it is recommended that you keep hydrated by drinking water or ginger ale but a avoid drinks that are high in sugars. We will supply you with a bottle of water prior to departure.

 

Keep Warm!
It is always colder on the ocean than on land. Dress in layers and bring extra clothes. Sometimes on choppy days people can get wet and chilled. We will supply you with waterproof ponchos if it is raining and have lovely warm blankets for those extra chilly days.

 

Don’t forget the sunblock and sunglasses!
Water reflects and magnifies the sun rays. Without protection you can get severely sunburned during your trip. Be sure to bring your sunglasses to protect your eyes from glare on the water.

 

Children on boats!
We love having children on board as education about the ocean is a key driver in our business. However, this activity is not recommended for children under the age of 2 years. Please remember we have other guests on board so children must be supervised by their parent/s or guardian for the full duration of the trip. For safety reasons do not allow your children to run around the boat. Boats are made of hard plastics and metals. Children must always be seated towards the back of the vessel preferably between two adults. They may not stand on the seats or be seated on your shoulders for a better view. One wrong movement from the boat can send a kid flying and result in a painful injury. Please ask your children to refrain from screaming. Loud noises will put the crew on alert and unsettle other passengers. Make it safe, make it fun.

WHAT TO BRING

Rubber-soled shoes

A moving vessel is not usually the best place for high heels. Sneakers/takkies have much better traction as sometimes the decks get wet and slippery even though we have non-slip rubberising on our vessels.

 

Warm clothes

Ideally you should wear a nice warm jacket or hoodie as it can get really chilly out on the ocean.  We will supply you with a blanket if the day is colder than normal.

 

Sunscreen and Sunglasses

On sunny days you can get quite a sunburn and sunglasses will help protect your eyes from glare off the water as you scan the horizon looking for whales and dolphins.

 

Camera or Camcorder

Make sure your batteries are fully charged or you have a spare set to ensure you don’t miss the “money shot”.  And don’t forget you memory card.
