  • Electrolyte/flavor crystal packets (optional)
    —Can be added to water to replace fluids in case of intestinal illness and/or enhance the taste to encourage hydration.
  • Motion sickness medication
    —Although waters are generally smooth and our boat is a stable vessel, it is possible to experience choppy waters should we encounter inclement weather on our boat excursion. If you are sensitive to motion sickness, we strongly recommend that you come prepared with preventative measures.
