As stated on our welcome page, you will be wearing a floatation suit that will keep you warm and dry, however, there are a few things you might want to bring with you:

-Dress in layers of clothing as this retains heat
-A hat
-Gloves (possibly)
-Sun screen of at least SPF 30 – remember wind burn can be just as damaging as sunburn – and chapstick
-Shoes that you don’t mind getting wet and which are suitable for use on an inflatable boat
-Any appropriate medication

Naturally you will want to take home records of your trip, however, please remember that digital cameras (in particular) can easily be ruined by exposure to moisture and/or sea water. While our guides and/or Captain may give you advice on keeping your cameras safe, you carry any sort of camera on our trips at your own risk . We do advise you not to be too eager to take pictures – sometimes the eye sends confusing messages to the brain – and there is nothing worse than checking your ‘shots’ to find that you have a small black line in a large expanse of sea! Our Captain will try to get you as close to getting good pictures as he can and as is reasonably legitimately possible, however, the welfare and lack of stress of the animals is paramount. We prefer them to come to us or be travelling on the same course.
