  • Come in shoes that you don’t mind getting sandy, and are easy-to-remove for beach-ramp boarding.
  • Casual clothing is recommended for all trips.
  • This trip is usually on the sailing catamaran Spirit of Aloha but on occasion may be on the powerboat Makai, which is a fast and nimble open powerboat, with plenty of sea-spray likely on trips outside the bay. Clothing that you don’t mind getting wet is recommended for whale-watch and snorkel trips on the Makai powerboat. Makai is a fast boat with low sides and lots of sea-spray.
