NO BANANAS! Please do not bring big bulky or Styrofoam coolers there is not enough room to store them. I have 2 large YETI coolers: 75YETI to store drinks and food and 210YETI cooler for dry storage. My coolers double as seating for up to 6 people! I suggest bringing your food, drinks, and belongings in some sort of tote/ canvas beach bag or small back pack. A pack that is compressible and easy to store. I will transfer your food and drinks in to my coolers.
I always tell my customers to bring their own food and drinks. I usually have waters and ice. I do encourage you bring your own water just in case you have personal brand preferences or if I do not have enough. Beer and liquor is permitted aboard my boat, I do also ask for my guests to wear white sole shoes, or boating non marking soles – anything without black bottoms please.
I recommend you bring your own sunscreen and a towel. I prefer my guests refrain from the use of spray sunscreen only because it leaves a slippery residue on the boat as it stains the cushions, and the deck.
If you plan on keeping fish I suggest you bring some sort of container/cooler to keep in your car till the trip is over. As a guest I supply your fishing licenses. It does not hurt to have your own Florida fishing license. Wal mart and some tackle shops supply them or you can order online at myfwc.com. Having a license with a reef specie endorsement will allow for us to get where we normally cannot go. DON’T FORGET your SUNGLASSES. A good pair of polarized glasses is a key component out here on the water. If you have some bring them so you can see what I see. I highly recommend Costa Del Mar or Smith Optics.
