FAQ - Frequently asked Questions:

What should I bring?
A good attitude!!! You should always be prepared for all types of weather. That means never wear cotton! Wear layers of polypropylene, wool, or fleece over a bathing suit. Sunscreen is a great idea. Make sure that you have had something to eat and drink before your trip so you are feeling your best. A towel might be helpful after your trip. A water-proof camera is also an awesome idea so that you can capture some of those memories on film. We also offer photography by request captured on a CD for $10.95, less than the price of most water-proof cameras. Sunglasses might be helpful, but be sure they are on a leash.
