Day-trip Packing List

Perhaps I’m over planning, but I’ve been trying to make a list of what to bring on our excursions.  We’ll most likely bring a backpack to trade off between the two of us.  If we find that’s too big, I have a purse that I can bring, but that means I have to lug it around the whole time (and it’s not as comfortable as a backpack, either).  Here’s my initial list of what to bring, based on carrying a backpack and two security pouches:

Paul’s pouch: His passport, credit and debit cards, the health insurance cards, drivers’ license, cash, SetSail pass

My pouch: My passport, credit and debit cards, drivers’ license, SetSail pass, emergency phone number/address list


  • Two waterbottles
  • Snacks
  • Towels (if going to beach)
  • Books (if going to a place to sit for an extended time)
  • Camera
  • Basic first aid materials
  • Kleenex
  • Umbrellas (if rain is in the forecast)
  • Headscarf/shawl (if going into a church or mosque)
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses/regular glasses
  • Hat (if not wearing)
  • Map
  • List of sights to see
  • Notepad
  • Pen
  • Extra clothes (if expecting to get wet or very sweaty)
  • Plastic bags/baggies

The list would be shortened to the essentials if we were bringing my purse instead of the backpack: water bottles, camera, first aid, Kleenex, sunscreen, map, list of sights to see, pen.  If worse comes to worse, we can go back to the ship and pick up what we need, eat lunch, rest, or do whatever else we need… however, I’d rather not spend the little on-land time we have walking to and from the boat!
