What to Wear:
We suggest outer clothing that is warm and can be changed into and out of easily. You may wear a bathing suit, wet suit or dry suit, and certainly no skinny-dipping!  We strongly recommend you wear shoes into the water. You should leave your wallet, keys, valuables and jewelry with your guests or don’t bring them at all.  Large women’s and men’s tents will be set up on the beach where you can dress down and back up again.
