PREPARING FOR YOUR TRIP

Get ready to embark on an adventure of a lifetime! Before we set sail, it’s important to make sure you have everything you need for the journey ahead.

PACKING

All of your luggage will be on the boat, but we recommend packing a smaller bag with day to day items that you will need during the trip. The smaller bag will stay with you while your larger luggage will be stowed in another cabin or storage area on the boat until you reach your final destination. This is a matter of safety as well as space consideration.

Here is a list of items we suggest you pack in your small bag:

Light clothing

Raincoat & light jacket

Swimwear or Bikini

Reef safe sunscreen

Camera & charger

Books, Music & Games.

Hat & & sunglasses

Seasickness medication

Insect
repellent

Flashlight

Towel

Snacks & Drinks

Toiletries

Please note that you will not need shoes for the next 5 days as you will be living barefoot. And, let’s disconnect from the internet for the next 5 days and enjoy the adventure.

SEASICKNESS

Seasickness can occur during the navigation portion of the trip. Although not all passengers are affected by this, we do recommend that you purchase sea sickness tablets regardless and start taking them before departing for the open sea crossing. Dramamine and Mareol are common brands and can be bought over the counter at most pharmacies. Ginger is a natural remedy for motion sickness and can be taken as an alternative to tablets.

PAYMENT & CURRENCY EXCHANGE

Please ensure that you have all the necessary cash ready before departure. We recommend leaving ample time to withdraw cash, as you may encounter a daily limit on the amount you can withdraw, depending on your bank and the ATM.

If you’re leaving Colombia, you’ll need some USD to cover transport and taxes in Panama. You can exchange with us during the pre-departure meeting or at a currency exchange office. Please do not exchange money with people on the street.
