Weather changes fast on this island, and the seasoned
visitors knows to leave an extra day or two in your plans as you could
likely could be fogged in during the summer months.
Plan ahead and be flexible. Make reservations in advance
for lodging, transportation and tours if at all possible.
Ask about refund policies for cancellations or delays
due to weather.
Inquire about travel insurance to cover unexpected
costs due to changes.
Local stores will have advice on gear and equipment
that you might find too large to bring or you just plain forgot.
Don't forget the camera (film and processing can be
found locally), binoculars and or spotting scope.
If your plans include a local flight or a charter boat
you might consider hip boots.
Always be aware of the weather, vegetation, and wildlife and be prepared
for emergencies! A compass, topographical maps, nautical charts and
a light weight solar blanket are good things to think about. Extra supplies
in case of weather delays.
File a Search and Rescue form or "SAR" indicating where
you will be and when you plan to return. These forms are available at
law enforcement agencies and some retailers.
Observe wildlife viewing guidelines!
