Getting Ready for A Day at Sea on an Oahu Fishing Adventure
May 26, 2020
Anytime you have a big adventure planned, there’s always going to be a bit of mystery, and great excitement, especially when it comes in a dream destination like Hawaii. When it comes to a fun activity like an Oahu Fishing Adventure, there are a few things that you’ll want to know about in advance. Part of the fun of an adventure like this is the unknown, but there are a few items you’ll need to know prior to departing.
Before heading out for your day at sea, consider the following information, all very important to a fun and successful Oahu Fishing Adventure.
Battling Sea Sickness
The ocean is a highly unpredictable place and with the constant up and down, rocking, and constant motion, you may get a little queasy. Some have zero issues and never get sea sick, but for most of us, we need to medicate appropriately so that we don't spend out day at sea over the side of the boat. It is highly recommended to take proper doses of motion sickness medicine, and to follow instructions on how to administer the medication. You’ll need to start preparing 24 hours in advance, and be sure to drink plenty of water before hand.
Food and Drinks on Board
Most charters allow pretty much anything on board, but be sure to check with your Captain beforehand. Bringing snacks and meals is important because there is not anything provided, and you will want to bring plenty of water. It is hot at sea, so if alcohol is allowed on board, be sure to take it easy and make sure you’re consuming plenty of food and water.
Depending on the charter and boat that you reserve, there may not be much reprieve from the sun. While some boats do have an interior that allows you a place to hide, some don't. Play it safe and bring protection from the sun. Sun block, a long sleeved shirt, a hat, sunglasses, and even a light jacket will give you protection and make sure you don't head home with the worst sunburn you’ve ever experienced.
A day at sea is always a ton of fun and your Oahu Fishing Adventure is bound to be an experience that you never forget. Prepare appropriately and your experience will be everything that you want it to be.
