What to put in your backpack

Comfortable beach clothing: flip-flops, swimsuit, sun hat, sunscreen, especially in high season.

A beach towel is also recommended for those who want to take advantage of a swim or just sit on the beach

DO NOT bring along beach umbrellas or beach toys for children-they would just be inconvenient to carry around.

Low season best to bring a long-sleeved shirt if you want to make the return trip on the open deck.

If the weather forecast is not optimal, also bring a windbreaker, which you can leave on board in case you do not need it.

Backpacks and bags can be left on board during your shore excursion but, remember, they will not be guarded and will not be used to reserve your seat.
