What to Bring on Your Trip

(...and what NOT to bring!)

What to bring:

Joining us on a full or half-day trip? Here’s what you’ll need to bring:

  • Refillable Water Bottle (RIO tries to avoid all single-use products!)
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses (with chums or other securing device)
  • Sandals/Shoes that stay on your feet (please no flip-flops)
  • Camera (Waterproof or has Waterproof case)
  • Clothing is a “You-Do-You” situation- we suggest a bathing suit underneath shorts and t-shirt that are NOT of cotton materials. A long sleeve layer is recommended for either adding warmth, or providing a layer of sun-protection (Inclement weather may call for different needs-please contact RIO with any questions/concerns)
  • Cash money to tip your hardworking guide(s)!

What not to bring:

  • Please leave all electronics behind (except camera- optional)
  • Alcohol or drugs (beer/wine permitted on overnight camp trips)
  • Cotton clothing is not recommended, especially jeans. Quick-dry materials are best.
