If you’re cruising on our 61’, Marauder IV, add an extra layer to cut the chill. It might seem warm on the dock, but once you’re out on the water the temperature can drop by quite a few degrees. A jacket to cut the wind will help. We’ve got complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate aboard, and we’re pleased to offer you the convenience of a spacious on-board bathroom.
If you’re headed for full-on excitement in a zodiac, we’ll have you suit up in a Transport Canada approved one-piece suit (we have lots of sizes). This cruiser suit is your ‘life jacket’ but will also help to keep the chill at bay! In the winter, we also provide toques ( a Canadian term for hats!) and gloves for those cooler days.
We are often asked if it is okay to bring a camera, and the answer is .. for sure! A strap to have the camera looped around your neck and inside your suit is a really easy way to carry it. Or, there is onboard storage under your seat if you wish to bring a waterproof camera bag. The storage area will save your gear from flying off the boat, but please be aware that there really isn’t a waterproof spot on the boat! So, plan accordingly.
A word of caution… these boats are fun, small and open. The wind can blow salt spray into the boat and onto you! So, please leave personal possessions and expensive equipment at home. Your funny looking flotation suit isn’t designed to be waterproof or warm.. it is just to keep you foating and warm-ish if you ever ended up in the water.
Comfortable, flat shoes are best, and pants and layered tops work well under the suits.
