Packing List for Bimini Trips

  •  Water Resistant Reef Safe Sunblock (SPF 50+ recommended for face and children)
  • Sunglasses (these should fit snuggly on your face and not fall off with sweat or water)
  • Hat with visor (to protect your face and neck)
  • At least 2-3 swim suits (you may use multiple per day) and cover up or two
  •  A shorty wet suit 2:2 is recommended (the water temperature is around 80*, many people find that having a shorty allows them to stay in the water longer, especially while you are having therapy sessions)  Last time in Bimini I used a long 3:2 to be with dolphins; we can stay in for up to 4 hours. 
  • Mask, snorkel; noseclips, ear seal plugs for therapy sessions, swim goggles.  Don't bring fins; the Captain is fussy about the fins we use.  I do like to use my own mask and snorkel, but he does have some if needed. 
  • Rash Guards are recommended (this way, when not wearing a wetsuit, you will be protected from the sun)
  • Light weight clothing is recommended.  We had dinner off the boat once.  I bring mostly very casual clothing.
  • Comfortable shoes or sandals or water shoes.  It can get wet on the boat.  The boat is barefoot.  
  • One light weight sweater or sweatshirt, if you tend to get chilly at night
  •  OPTIONAL: Camera or video camera or underwater camera.  It is very difficult to use underwater cameras unless you have done the experience before. 
  • If you have allergies or other medical conditions, please bring your medications. If you have medication that needs to be administered, such as an epipen or diastat in the event of an emergency, please alert Krystal.
  • Medical Insurance Cards.
  • If you wear contacts, bring an extra pair, since we will be in the water for long durations.
  • Expenses:
    • One dinner out from boat
    • Any additional nights in Bimini
    • Geoffry provides all meals and some snacks.  I like to bring some of my own.  There is coffee in the morning and water is provided.  DO NOT drink from the faucets on the boat.  
  • Please bring your own toiletries that are of the appropriate size (3 oz or less) for carry on luggage in a zipped plastic bag. If these go in your luggage, you may use any size.
  • Cellular phones do work on the island – call your provider for charges. You may choose to bring phone cards.Don’t forget a phone charger for your cell phone!  Cells do not work at sea, but there is wifi on deck the first and last day only. 
  • There is a single computer at the hotel that connects to the internet. There is some wireless on the property for devices that is available at no charge, but it is not always consistent.
  • Do not forget your passport and other identification (many places require 2). It is recommended to make photo copies of your passports and credit cards
  • Electrical outlets do not require adapters.
  • Sometimes, there is rain in the Caribbean. You may appreciate a rain mist, if not, bring a rain jacket. 
  • Emergency numbers with you and at home.
  • Anything for motion sickness that you may require 
  • Sarong towel or towels
