Clothing and Gear

Tennis shoes, water sandals or rubber boots are desirable for wear in watercraft, but hiking boots will make exploring shoreline areas easier. Necessities include a shade hat, long-sleeve shirt, long pants, rain gear, jacket, sunscreen, sunglasses, first-aid kit and mosquito repellent. You might also want to consider a mosquito head net and a screen tent. Your gear should be stowed in dry bags (or water-tight containers) to protect it from the elements as well as boating mishaps. You won’t want to forget your camera or binoculars, because there’s much to see.
