What to Wear:
- shoes or sandals that are okay to get wet
- Active wear or bathing suit/quick drying spandex type material for top/bottoms. Do not wear cotton as that material gets extremely heavy when wet and is slow to dry.
- sunscreen if it’s sunny. You can wear a hat/sunglasses but if you happen to fall in, these may fall off/become lost in the ocean – wear at your own risk
