How To Be Prepared
PARKING: Please park by the little brown restroom building near the harbor entrance on the back side (west) of Haleiwa Joe's Restaurant.
WHEN: General tour times vary by season and can be seen in the Online Calendar (WEATHER PERMITTING.)
Earliest trips generally have the least wind and the calmest conditions. Early is advised for those prone to sea sickness.
WHAT TO BRING:
TOWELS (2 towels are advised for comfort)
CAMERA (Small handheld cameras are not permitted in the water, but good for taking pictures from the boat)
CHANGE OF CLOTHES are recommended
BIODEGRADABLE REEF SAFE SUNSCREEN (Oxybenzone free). Please no aerosol spray sunscreen! We have extra sunscreen onboard. Just ask :)
We provide MASKS, SNORKELS, & FINS & RASH GUARDS. However you are welcome to bring your own.
RASHGUARDS & WETSUITS are highly recommended for jellyfish protection, but not required (we can get comb jellyfish floating by irregularly). We have jellyfish spray and no-itch gel onboard if you do get stung. We do have UV Xcel rash guards onboard for you to borrow during our program. Just ask the captain when you board. ** If you are signing up for a beginner free dive course, all gear including wetsuit can be provided **
Bring your MEDICATIONS onboard with you if you are knowingly diabetic or allergic to bee stings/jellyfish. Please inform crew of any special medical conditions & medications. Safety is our top priority.
IF YOU ARE PRONE TO SEASICKNESS make sure to take DRAMAMINE THE NIGHT BEFORE AND 1 HOUR BEFORE BOARDING THE BOAT to prevent it. If you feel seasick while onboard, drink water and look at the horizon. You are welcome to bring any ginger lozenges or snacks to help with your nausea.
