What to Wear and Bring

Dress for the weather. You should wear a swimsuit and shorts at the very minimum, plus more layers if the weather is cooler. You’ll definitely get a little wet, so keep that in mind. We suggest avoiding cotton–synthetic materials work best. Wear a raincoat if the forecast calls for it. You may also want to bring sunscreen and sunglasses. Consider renting a wetsuit and splash jacket in the spring or fall.
