  • Bring towels, swimsuit, hats, and non-spray reef-safe sunscreen. 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 Holona, 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 Holonapowerboat. Holona is a fast boat with low sides and lots of sea spray.
