There are also currency exchange stalls in some locations. Please note that the join in cost will cover all your on-board expenses and the only need for additional money for meals/accommodation, personal provisions or any items you purchase along the way... in the few locations where that will be possible.
The attire on the boat is very casual – swimsuits and bare feet by day, shorts and shirt, or sarongs, and sandals in the evening. A windbreaker or similar for standing the night watches. You might want to bring hiking sandals or shoes for exploring the trails or shopping.
Swim suits, dive skin, fins, mask, snorkel, fishing gear, sailing gloves, sailing rain gear, and any other toys you want to bring along, but it is recommended to keep it simple.
Sunscreen, sun glasses, hat, light sweater or wind breaker (it can get cool after a rain shower), camera, film, extra memory cards, batteries, dry bag & mosquito repellent (if you go ashore). Personal hygiene items: toothbrush & paste, shampoo, soap & deodorant, prescription medication, spare prescription eye-wear etc.
