In general, the Pacific Ocean is characterized by widely separated, gentle swells consistent with this area of the Pacific being in the “tropical doldrums” and south of the trade winds. Smaller boats of 6-8 meters length are ideal for these waters and also well suited for entering and exiting from excursion sites. Nearly all boats used in this area are locally made specifically for these waters. Whales, dolphins, sea turtles and manta rays are frequently seen.

With the abundance of the salt water, mosquitoes are not a problem. However saltwater midges  (“no-see-ums”) can be a nuisance particularly in the days prior to a full moon if no breezes are present. Avon “Skin so Soft” ( a skin cream) can be an effective repellant. Also a percentage of people show allergic reactions to “no-see-ums” and can benefit from anti-allergic pills or topical cream.
