Clothing appropriate for the conditions includes; a hat, sunglasses, windbreaker, soft-sole athletic shoes or waterproof boots. Layering your clothing is a definite must as conditions change throughout the day.

Although fishing in protected waters, wind can pick up and create sea conditions that sometimes affect those susceptible to motion sickness. There are several over-the-counter medications and patches that work very well. See a medical professional for advice.

Lunch and Snacks

We can arrange to provide you with lunch and or snacks (additional charge) or if you prefer you can bring your own. We have a small fridge on board for drinks and food. We also have a complimentary supply of bottled water available.

Possession of open alcohol or drugs is illegal on any vessel underway in Canadian waters.

The Captain would prefer it if you would leave that celebrating until after the trip.
