What Do You Bring to a Group Tour?

Most tours provide the necessary equipment for snorkelling and fishing activities upon request

However, I still advise double-checking with our specialists to be sure.

To make it easy on you, I made a checklist of things to bring!


  1. Bathing suits (under your clothes is fine) for snorkelling and swimming activities.
  2. Bring extra money for tips, souvenirs, transportation to and from the resort, or any park fees.
  3. Towels – most tours provide them, but it is good to have them just in case
  4. Comfortable shoes for walking
  5. Hat and sunglasses. Safety first!
  6. Biodegradable sunscreen (to help maintain a healthy habitat for sea life)
  7. Snacks and water
  8. Nausea medication for those who get sea or motion sickness
