Dress for cold and wind. Layer with long pants and rubber soled shoes.
- Bring: sunglasses, sunscreen, a camera, binoculars and hats if they are secured to head.
- Be prepared: Be at the boat at least 15 minutes early, and use the bathroom before you sail. Dramamine is a good idea if you tend to get motion sickness. Ginger ale and crackers can also help a sick stomach.
- Check your individual boat for dining options or if they allow you to bring snacks/lunches.
- Deals- there are always deals available for whale watching tours. Check your daily deal sites and entertainment books for coupons. Occasionally if your trip spots no whales, they will offer a return trip at no extra cost. Check with your individual ship for guarantees.
