What to bring / wear:
We suggest that you bring your swimsuit, cover-up, non-aerosol sunscreen, a hat or visor, sunglasses, and a camera. A rash guard or sun shirt is a great idea if you plan to snorkel. A light wrap is also nice to have, especially on our early morning and sunset charters. Feel free to bring a change of clothing if you would like to shower and change aboard.
Customize your Ocean Adventure
On The Jayhawk, you have the ability to create your ideal day on the water. Snorkel, SCUBA dive, SUP, fish, whale watch, or simply kick back and enjoy the scenery. You choose what you like to do.
