Please bring clothing for both warm and cool weather. Generally, cotton and denim are not preferred because the fabric will not wick moisture and does not insulate if it becomes damp. For rainy/cool weather: Dress in layers. For your upper body, wear a synthetic top such as poly pro or Capilene next to your skin. Layer with a wool shirt or synthetic top (for warmth) then add wind or rain gear. Wear loose fitting pants you can roll up at the ankles so you don't get wet.
For sunny weather: Protect yourself from the sun. Wear a lightweight long or short-sleeved shirt and shorts. Wear a billed hat for sun protection. Again, make sure you wear shoes/sandals that are ok to get wet!
As your comfort is very important to us, you are welcome to bring any other items that you feel are essential, but not the kitchen sink! Keep in mind that what you bring must be transported in your sea kayak with group food and equipment. You will be required to carry your personal gear to your tent site. Helping to carry company equipment is optional but appreciated by your guides.
You’re welcome to bring your own tent. However, either a two-person tent (5.5’ x 7’) or a single-person tent (81” x 34”) comes with the cost of your trip and will be given to you at the put-in depending on your needs. Notify Centennial Canoe15 days prior to your trip if you’d like to rent a sleeping bag ($5/night camping) and/or mattress pad ($5/night camping). Sleeping bags should be light weight and easily compressed. No larger than 11” by 17” i.e., not bulky!
Any luggage that you do not want to bring on the kayak trip may be securely stored at the outfitter’s offices at no charge. If you will be returning to your same hotel after the conclusion of your trip, they may also be willing to store it for you.
