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.
