Not sure what to bring on your excursion, no worries. We’re here to help.

You don’t want to be left without the essentials but you also don’t want to be overloaded with unnecessary items either. It’s always important to wear weather appropriate clothing. Sunscreen for land and sea activities is a must. Sunglasses, comfortable footwear, insect repellent, and a hat make for a more pleasant activity. Don’t forget lip balm with an SPF to avoid chapped or burnt lips. A healthy snack for a quick lift and a water bottle. Enjoy!

Why does staying hydrated matter? It’s important for a number of reasons. Some reasons include stabilizing body temperature, reducing kidney stone risk, bowel regularity, and filtering waste products.

The recommended water intake for women is estimated at 2.7 liters a day and for men is estimated at 3.7 liters a day. In order to achieve this goal try adding strawberries, mint, lemons, cucumber slices or whatever flavor choice appeals to you to your water.

Also indulging in summer foods such as watermelon, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and a variety of stone fruit will add to you staying hydrated. Coconut water packed with electrolytes is extremely refreshing.
