Essential items to take on the boat during the Sardine Run

When going on a diving boat, it’s important to pack essential items to ensure your safety, comfort, & enjoyment during your full day safari. Keep in mind that this is a wet environment & time is spent out at sea for 4 – 8 hours depending on the sea conditions & the sardine run action.

We encourage divers to only carry the necessities to avoid unnecessary items on the boat such as:

  • Waterproof windbreaker & Beanie (essential to keep you warm and limit the windchill factor)
  • Sunglasses (we recommend Polaroid) & Sunhat
  • Buff (a great way to protect your face from the sun & wind)
  • Dry Bag (handy to keep items dry e.g. batteries, keys ,camera lenses etc.)
  • Seasick Tablets (if required)
  • You will be given a complimentary flask which can be used for tea, coffee or soup.
  • Refillable water bottle – to quench your thirst amidst all the action!
  • We have a designated cooler box containing a healthy lunch pack & snacks for days out at sea.
