  • Comfortable non-slip shoes
  • Food and beverages of choice
  • Sun protection
  • Cameras
  • Binoculars
  • Blankets
  • If you think you may be prone to sea sickness or are a first time whale watcher, you may want to consider motion sickness medications.
    • Over the counter medications such as  Bonine work well. Look for non-drowsy or less-drowsy options.
    • Drink water and stay hydrated. Ginger candies are available on board. Bland (not fried or fatty food) are the best. Crackers and
      Ginger ale are always a safe bet. Stay outside, fresh air can help a lot.
