WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Dress for the weather! It is recommended to look at the weather forecast before arriving to ensure you are dressed appropriately. It is likely you will get a little wet therefore we suggest light athletic wear or swimwear that you don’t mind getting water on. It is always a good idea to bring a change of clothes and a towel should you get lots of water in the boat. Please prepare yourself for the heat of the summer by wearing sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. If rain is in the forecast a light waterproof jacket is ideal for being out on the water.

Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, weather-appropriate clothing, dry bag for valuables (cell phone for time & emergencies), waterproof watch to keep track of rental time, water & snacks
