What to wear: wear clothing that is both quick to dry and provides protection from the sun and sport sandals (like Tevas), because your bottom-half will get wet.  You might want to bring a change of clothes. In the winter months, you’ll be happy to have a fleece to layer on and off.

What to bring: personal water bottle, hat, polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, pocket-sized binoculars, breathable rain poncho.
