    Don't forget your sunscreen!

    Luggage and bags: Take only one small bag! You can store your other bags and valuables at Koala's Resort for free. Take as little as possible.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Two days of swim wear. Rotating the sets. Just dry in the sun... like new!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Wow, can you say SPF 30+ You need to be able to. Also, I suggest aloe vera cream of some sort. You will probably miss a spot or two and end up with a handprint sunburn... like someone I know...

    Photo Equipment: If you forget your camera, jump off the boat and swim back.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: None needed

    Miscellaneous: They will try to tell you you have to rent snorkelling gear. You don't; there are extras available on board.

    Mike - ready for a monsoon

    Luggage and bags: Day Pack Only - Don;t bring your big pack store it for the 3 days your on the boat

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Clothing - Prepare for all occasions hot, wet, cool
    Shoes - Flip Flops are fine you only need them when on the islands
    Weather Gear - You can bring your own rain jacket but they can provide you with one

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring anything that you would need on a day to day basis (toothbrush, toothpaste, deoderant, shampoo etc.)

    Photo Equipment: Cameras are a must but make sure they're in a safe place when it gets rough and the biat is tippy!

    Miscellaneous: Sunglasses and sunscreen are a must. You may not feel like your burning because of the wind but at night you'll realize you're scorched! Hats are good but when the boat is haulin' you may lose it!

    Packing List

    Luggage and bags: Don't take anything that you don't want to be lost - only kidding!! I am sure nothing like that would happen to you !!
    Take lots of suncream - you can buy it there but you will need it by then! You will get burnt, I promise you!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Very tropical weather, so nothing very heavy, and open shoes.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can buy most things that you need in the hotel shop. Unless it is specialised prescription medicine.

    Photo Equipment: You can get all sorts of camera gear in the area, so don't stress too much about this. Although, i think the film is a bit dearer than usual, so maybe stock up!!

    Not much...

    Turtle Bay

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take as little as possible for a comfortable trip... Swimmers are a must, as are a sarong/shorts/singlets, a hat and sunglasses for around the pool/beach. Also take some long clothes to keep the sun off yourself. A light jumper or jacket is also needed in winter at night sometimes... Otherwise, the less the better... :)

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen is a MUST...take or buy lots of it and the highest SPF possible. You will get burnt very easily...

    Photo Equipment: Take a good camera and LOTS of film! Also an underwater camera is good for if you go snorkelling...the fish colours are amazing!!

    Strike up the band

    Miscellaneous: Ivan played our wedding music on a portable cd player while we signed the book and posed for pictures.
    In case you were wondering it was Barbers Adagio for strings, re mixed by William Orbit.
