Q. What should I wear?
A. Comfortable clothing, Rubber soled flat shoes are recommended for your comfort and safety. No heels, flip flops, or bare feet please. Sneakers or boat shoes are always a safe bet.

The summer sun will cook you fast, and it can get cool on the water during an evening cruise. .
