What Not to Bring

  • Pets
  • Too much perishable food
  • Suitcases, TIP: soft bags store better on board
  • Eskies (at least not on the boat), TIP: in our experience eskies take up valuable space on board. With the boats fridge, you usually won’t require extra space. Where we feel you would benefit from extra cooling space, eskies are provided on board. You can make a final decision on arrival.
  • Too many clothes, TIP: layering clothing is a great way to pack less while still being prepared for all conditions.
