This will be our longest day but sooooo fun!!!
We will leave the hotel at 8am to drive to Crystal River.
We have a 2 hour clear bottom kayak tour at 10am.
After the kayak tour, we have time for lunch and then go to our snorkeling adventure starting at 2pm.
They will fit us for our wetsuits at the shop before we go to the boat. They have sizes XS to 3X so we are all good.
This is a 3 hour tour in an enclosed, heated boat. They provide coffee, hot chocolate and water. Also says they provide towels but I am bringing one too.
There will be a professional photographer in the water with us and the footage can be purchased after the tour if you would like.
Here is the Facebook page for the tour company we are using-
Please bring a change of clothes and we will stop for dinner on the way back to the hotel and then you have the rest of the evening free to do whatever you would like.
WHAT DO WOMEN WEAR UNDER A WETSUIT?
Women are more conservative than males when it comes to swimwear. They must wear undergarments, especially while renting a wetsuit.
Women can also wear bikinis, and the decision between a bathing suit and a bikini is based on personal desire and comfort.
However, if you pick the bikini, avoid wearing one with a knot as the tight wetsuit will press the knot into your skin. It may not appear to be a big deal at first, but after a while, it becomes really painful and distracting.
Two-piece bikinis are also ideal for extended diving trips. It makes taking off your bottoms simpler, whether using the marine toilet or hiding behind a bush after a shore dive.
Avoid elements such as knots, metal, and bead embellishment, which may scrape into your skin and create irritation under the wetsuit. Thicker straps may also be more secure than smaller straps. When feasible, utilize flat clasps and slimline bikinis.
Sport bras and sports underwear are excellent choices for what to wear beneath a wetsuit. They are often more secure and provide excellent chest support than standard underwear or bikinis.
They are durable and designed for sweaty and rainy settings. Most will also be quick-drying, which is useful for drying your gear in between or after dives.
You can pair sports bras with bikini bottoms and spandex shorts. You can also use a sports bikini, which fits tighter than a regular bikini and is similar to a sports bra, and is better for removing your wetsuit.
A one-piece bathing suit is a straightforward and modest approach to covering a substantial section of your upper body. It doesn’t offer much insulation or protection, but it can cover up your intimate parts and keep the suit from rubbing against them.
Women can also wear compression shirts, although some prefer sleeveless tops since they provide greater mobility around the shoulders and arms. They’re called vests by some companies, and they’re made of the same thin, quick-drying, lightweight materials that are ideal for water sports, swimming, and layering beneath wetsuits while surfing.
Vests keep you comfortable and help regulate your core temperature whether you’re lounging on the beach or surfing.
