What should I wear?

  • Casual attire is recommended, as are rubber soled shoes, sunscreen, and a hat. Watch the weather closely and dress for it. Please remember that it is usually cooler near the lake and the temperature can easily be 5-10 degrees cooler  than it is on the nearby shore. The ship DOES sail in the rain and regardless of temperature, so please be prepared in either eventuality. Umbrellas are not allowed due to reasons of safety.
