- Polarized Sunglasses
- Sunscreen (30+ SPF)
Note: The sun is brighter on the ocean and there is a lot of reflection off the ocean’s surface. We recommend thoroughly covering your face, ears and neck as well as any other exposed skin. Nothing ruins a great day of fishing like a sunburn!
- Flat, non-skid shoes. Flip-flops or open-toed sandals are not recommended
- Camera (to document catching that trophy fish!)
- Light Jacket or Hoodie (Think “layers”. Florida weather can sometimes be unpredictable and it’s not uncommon to get a brief shower in the afternoon. For longer charters, we recommend bringing a change of clothes for the trip back to the dock. Even a very hot day can turn cool, especially if you’re wet.)
- Water and snacks (it’s important to stay hydrated)
- Sea sickness medication. Though the Captain works hard to keep the boat steady, if this is your first trip, or you’re prone to motion sickness, it’s a good idea to take the medication prior to your trip (according to directions), so it’s working when you board the boat.
- Empty cooler. If you intend to bring home your catch, be sure to have a cooler available in your car.
