ok waterbug

bring

1. get the best DEET/bug killer you can. Understand it is hard to find and $$$$ if you can even find it.

2. bring your own mask and snorkel if you have one.

3. bring a few good books to read.

4. water camera

5. sun is hot hot hot get the sunshine protection you want to use.

6. If you look at the weather channel/ internet you will see there could be rain sometime during the day. Bring a light waterproof jacket.

don't bring :

Rooms are comfortable but small. You might luck out and not have a roommate. Pack to keep it below 50 pounds is hard. don't bring to many clothes. You can always buy t shirts on the islands.

you will be getting a list of dos and donts to bring sometime this week or next. I got mine about 5 days ago.

don't being fins. they have on the boat and they take up to much room in your luggage.

Let you good jewelry at home.

Have fun

Paul
