Ooh lucky!  I’d bring a couple lightweight, light-colored, longsleeve shirts… when it’s really hot and sunny, it’s actually cooler to have more of your skin covered, and the white reflects the sun.  Something like this:

I always wear it, but if you’d been told not to then don’t. Maybe some jewellery. Lol I’m such a magpie.

@atlbride2013:  You don’t need the fins. We brought our own since it was a full set that we got at a sporting store. I know the hotels provided them free of charge (mask and fins) but they were all communal.

We also stayed at the Hilton in Moorea. If you’re staying in an OWB, ask for one that the balcony faces west. I remember ours did and when we were walking around on the deck, the winds came in from the east and some other guests we met had said their balcony was so windy that they couldn’t really use it.

Also if you have Hilton Gold status, you’ll get free breakfast. Grab a tote bag and snag some of the extra french bread rolls. The fish absolutely love the bread so you can feed them and get some great photos.

Rashguard wise, Athleta is having a 30-35% off sale today, they have some great stuff.

When we travel, we love to experience the local life. DH and I always wander into the local grocery stores and check out the local haunts. Snack Mahana and Jules and Claudine were total hole in the walls that the locals love and we ate at two fancy restaurants that we actually did not enjoy as much as those two places. Jules and Claudine served up some of the freshest mahi mahi I’ve ever tasted in my life. There was another hole in the wall we ate at in Bora Bora that I don’t remember the name of. 🙁 It was near a beach though….I just remember it was SW of Vaitape.The fancy places will run you around around 80-150 per person for a dinner. Some of the local haunts was around 25-50 per person.

I remember we really enjoying the sandwiches out there in Tahiti… they had french fries stuffed in them!

I love Vix or Mara Hoffman bikinis (which my chest is too large for, waah waah but they’re to die for). For clothing, anything linen!

 

Also, Free People. My regular style isn’t as laid back but I swear by them for cute vacation clothes. Casual, flowing, yet stylish and can be dressed up.

Hi @atlbride2013:  How exciting to hear this is finally happening for you… Yippee !!

I don’t have a lot to add about clothing that hasn’t been said already (haven’t been to FP… but we go to the Caribbean often) the key will be fabrics… as no doubt it will be Hot, Humid & Muggy.  Lol, but WONDERFUL all the same.

Re – Snorkelling Equipment

Mr TTR & I only own our own Snorkels… we find we can “make do” with what ever other equipment Resorts have on hand… but I LOVE not having to share my “mouthpiece” with any strangers !! (ick)

Also, Mr TTR like fins… I don’t.  We both however bring / wear Water Shoes.  Good for walking on any rough beaches… as well as inside fins or alone (if inside fins you’ll find you take a bigger size than normal)

We both bring somewhat ratty t-shirts from home for snorkelling in the ocean… works as a good cover up in the intense sun… helps protect you somewhat from sunburn.  At the end of the vacation, if the Tshirt looks horrid… no loss, leave it behind.

We pack minimum stuff in our day pack / beach bag when we go snorkelling.  Gear – Beach Towels – Sun Tan Lotion – Bottled Water – Decent Coverup for the trip there and back – and an underwater camera**  We also limit our valuables… Mr TTR usually uses a swim wallet *… and few bucks and some “plastic” (ID / Drivers License / Ship Card if we are Cruising – Credit Card).

* Swim Wallets there are different kinds… find one that works for you.  Mr TTR has a pocket in his trunks that snaps shut (and we put a safety pin thru it too).  He keeps his swim wallet in there.  (His is basically a waterproof plastic pouch, heavier than a ziploc bag, but same principle)

** Our first Snorkelling Trip we bought a Disposible Underwater Camera.  The photos were so-so.  And I was p!ssed afterwards when I got them developed, cause I took 2 Photos at the beach of the scenery / each other… cause I read on the Instructions that it was for close ups and not so great for bright sunlight outdoors etc.  Turns out my 2 Photos were FABULOUS… I wish I had more.  And because of worrying about leaving my small digital camera unattended in our beach bag… I didn’t bring it.

I’ve now solved that problem.  We invested in a Go-Pro Camera that can do it all… Digital Camera – Video Camera – and Underwater too.  And it is small & rugged.  Best Investment ever.  Now I leave virtually NOTHING of valuable in our Beach Bag… everything is in the Water with us (Camera and Swim Wallet).

And OUR Rings… plain ones when we go to the Beach… or NONE.  Fancy ones are either in the Hotel Room Safe… or locked up here at home in our Safety Deposit Box (depends on WHAT country we are headed to etc)

Hope this helps,
