take extreme precautions
if you dont wish to be bitten.. even with all the precautions, the chances are that you will get bitten either by mosquitoes or the no seems as they are called. it takes up to a week for the wheal and the itching to go away. it is good to have cortisone cream with you to rub on it three times a day to alleviate the pain and itching.
watch out for the tides
Tides dont receed as it does in Derby in W Australia or in Madagascar but there is a fair bit of difference in water level in between the tides..
