Our motto is – There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear. It’s never a good idea to take shortcuts when it comes to clothing – being improperly dressed can impact your enjoyment of the voyage! Dress on board the ships is casual and informal at all times.
The best clothing is a layered system with an outer layer that is waterproof. The air between the layers provides additional insulation.
- Base Layer – Thermal underwear and a pair of thermal socks.
- Mid Layer – Pants (fleece is ideal), a light cotton shirt, and a fleece.
- Outer Layer – Waterproof pants and a waterproof jacket.
Waterproof pants are required to participate in landings.
Note: Lightweight disposable rain gear will not endure more than one landing, so please bring high quality, expedition-weight waterproof pants.
- Shoes – Sturdy walking shoes or sneakers with a good grip sole for the slippery deck, and the rubber boots we provide.
