Things to Bring with You on Kai Kanani

You’ve booked your ticket. Now it’s time to amp up the excitement and gather up everything you need.

Remember your sunscreen! 

The sun is quite intense at this latitude, even on cloudy days! Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before you enter the water to let it soak in. Reapply after drying off.   Remember to use a rub on, reef safe sunscreen that does not contain Oxybenzone.  Also, try to stay away from the spray sunscreens which tend to leave streaks and make a mess on the boat and in the water.

A towel (or 2) for all seasons

While the air is usually warm with a nice breeze to air dry, most people like to dry off with a towel.   Bring two, if you so desire – one for drying and the other for kicking back.

Catch it on camera! 

We  guarantee  there will be something that you will want to photograph while on one of our tours – whether it be fish, turtles, whales or yourselves and the beautiful scenery. If you have a choice between a regular or a waterproof camera we highly suggest bringing along the one that is waterproof.

A light cover

Sometimes the breeze can have a bit of a bite, especially when you are wet.  A light cover up can act both as sun protection and to keep the chill off right after you get out of the water.

rash guard or wetsuit top

While in the refreshing waters around Maui the water cools you just enough that you might not realize you are getting sunburned.  A swim shirt (rash guard or wet suit top) will protect you from a pink back later in the day.

Ties for hair and hats

Keep your hair out of your face while sailing and snorkeling with a hat or hair tie.   A hat will also help your cheeks from getting too rosy from the sun.

A bag

Bring a bag with you to stow your items once you get on board the boat.  If you have a waterproof bag, even better as it will help keep valuables dry while boarding our beach loading vessel.

Your best smile

Seriously. Your smile makes our day. We are ready to show you a fabulous. Come ready to have a great time!

If you have any questions or need help locating anything you before you join us, please let us know and we will be happy to assist you.

We look forward to seeing you out on Kai Kanani 2!!!
