Frequently Asked Questions 1. What should we pack? Key West is very laid back and informal. Pack light and simple for temps that range between the mid-60's to low 80's. Shorts, flip flops, t-shirts, a pair of jeans or sweatpants, a wind-breaker and sweatshirt for cool evenings helps. Ladies--if you like to dress up for shore leave, a sun dress will do for Key West night life. Don't forget sandals, a sun hat and your swim suit (we have beach towels). And, bring your camera! If you have special snorkeling gear that you prefer feel free to bring it. We have snorkels, fins, masks and wetsuits for everyone on board. 2.What about seasickness? If you are concerned about seasickness we always suggest you contact your physican before you come. They usually recommend scopomine (a patch that is placed behind your ear). We also have several over-the-counter drugs on board that can help (i.e. sturgeron and dramine). We also have an accupuncture-based electronic wrist device that works wonderfully (without any drugs) to combat any feeling of seasickness. For most of our guests it is not a problem. 3. Can we have input as to where we sail? Are we "out at sea" the entire trip? We plan our sails with you and based on the weather and your plans. We most often sail out for several days, then are back on the mooring ball for guests to relax and enjoy Key West, with trips out to snorkel on the reefs, fish or day sail. When you come aboard, we sit down with the charts and the weather report to plan our time together. Many guests prefer to think of DiggerKat as a "floating condo" that sails--or a sailboat that serves as a relazing spot after fun times on shore--you pick! 4. What about food and drink preferences? Food allergies and things we don't like or can't eat? We spend time emailing you before your trip regarding your preferences, any food allergies and the types of things you prefer to eat and drink. We do our very best to serve food you enjoy that is healthy, well prepared and delicious. 5. Is DiggerKat safe at sea? DiggerKat is a 42' foot "blue water ready" sailboat. She weighs 26,000 pounds and is ready for all weather and all oceans. She is very safe and we sail her so our guests are comfortable.
