Frequently Asked Questions
You need to bring, sunscreen, drinks, (water is a necessity,) water shoes, (i recommend you bring them just in case you need them.) Sunglasses, hat, and any food you would like to eat. You may bring a fishing rod, & tackle if you would like to use your own, I do however provide fishing rods and tackle. You may also bring any toys that the children would want to bring.
No. You do not. I provide one for all on board.
No, you don't need to bring a cooler. We have large coolers on board. However, if you eat as much as we do, you might want to bring a cooler with you.
No, you will not get seasick. I promise. I rarely ever venture out into the ocean, where the motion is much different in the sound. If you take sea sickness medication, you may want to sleep the day away, so I advise against it.
We do have sharks in our waters, and they have been known to swim around, although we have yet to see one while out of our boats adventuring around. We have caught a few while fishing near the inlet. But, Lets hope not! so far no one has been eaten, bitten or chased around by any marine life at all. However, there have been a few encounters with blue crabs. The blue crab is usually more afraid of you than you are of him. If you see one, run and scream like a little girl, and he will do the same.
No, you do not. We provide life jackets, and they are coastguard approved. We even have some with their favorite Disney characters to make it more pleasant. Yes, the children ( under 12 ) must-have on a life jacket while we are underway to our locations. There are no exceptions to this rule. We also will gladly take your lifejackets that the kids have outgrown, if you would like to donate them to the boats, its always nice to recycle!
No, I do not. I tried to provide snorkeling gear, but it is kinda gross sharing a mouthpiece, so I decided not to provide gear, However Amazon has some really nice inexpensive full face snorkel masks, so if your planning your vacation a few days in advance I would order from amazon. Walmart and other chain stores carry them as well, I find that the full face snorkel masks are easier for kids and adults to use. Check them out in some pictures on my "smiling faces "page here on the website. There are several places on the Island that have inexpensive snorkeling sets. I do have some snorkels on the boat at all times, in the event you forget yours.
