Recommended wearing apparel & photo equipment

  • Waterproof jacket/medium-heavy windbreaker
  • Warm clothing or thermal wear
  • Tennis shoes, rubber boots or old shoes
  • Motion sickness pills or patches (for those who need them)
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen

Photo equipment: still and/or video cameras with plenty of films and extra, fully charged batteries. Tip:: a 35mm zoom lens is adequate, to 200mm is better. ISO 200 film is a plus, as lens cleaning tissue and hand towel.

Bow spray and some wind are inevitable, so bring a protective hat or scarf, and a plastic or waterproof bag to protect your camera equipment. Light rain is also possible. From January through March, daytime temperatures can range from 5°C (37°F) to 25°C (77°F).
