What to Wear on Your Dolphin Watch

If you have added a dolphin watch to your list of things to do in Myrtle Beach, then you have made an excellent decision. Our Myrtle Beach dolphin watch has a zero-carbon footprint, and we take the proper steps to make sure that we can observe dolphins safely and in their natural habitats. So, not only will you delight in the opportunity to get up close and personal with dolphins while protecting their safety, but you’ll also learn about all the things we do to protect these magnificent creatures.

This said we want to ensure our guests take steps to protect themselves before and during their dolphin watch adventure. Since weather is never 100% predictable and the sun is well known to carry those harmful UV rays, maximize your enjoyment by following our recommendations on what to wear on your dolphin watch.
Following our suggestions is one of the best ways to make the most of a Myrtle Beach dolphin cruise.

1. Dress for the elements on your Myrtle Beach dolphin watch

When participating in a Myrtle Beach dolphin watch, be sure to dress for the weather. Though we always suggest that you bring a hat, we also recommend that you have a long-sleeved t-shirt available to wear if the sun gets to be too much or if the air is a bit chilly. A hat can also help protect your eyes and the top of your head from those harmful UV rays. Don’t forget to bring your sunglasses too. The sun can negatively affect your skin and eyes, so be sure to protect your eyes from the reflection of the sun by wearing sunglasses. Wearing eye protection will help provide you with a better view of the water and help you see the dolphins on super bright days.

2. Slather on the sunscreen before your Myrtle Beach dolphin watch

We recommend that you apply sunscreen with an SPF of 50 or higher for at least 30 minutes before heading out on your dolphin watch. And, since your dolphin tour aboard the TURSI-OPS is about 90 minutes long, you may need to reapply your sunscreen towards the end of the cruise. Although we may pass through some areas where the shade will relieve us of the sun, the sun’s reflection on the water can still cause sunburn. Also, if it’s cloudy, you can still get sunburned through those fluffy white clouds. The key here is precaution and preparation. By applying sunscreen half an hour before the tour, you will be taking the right steps to protect your skin.

3. Wear non-skid shoes for your Myrtle Beach dolphin watch

Though summer sandals are trendy and cute, they aren’t always the best choice for a dolphin watch in Myrtle Beach. Not only do strappy sandals leave room for a sunburn, but the shoe bottoms don’t always have the best tread on them. Thus, we recommend that our guests wear comfortable attire with non-skid shoes. Tennis shoes are a great choice, but if you prefer sandals, be sure to apply sunscreen to your feet as well as the rest of the exposed areas of your body, and be aware of wet spots on the boat where you could slip and fall.
