What Should I Wear and What Can I Bring?

Q: What clothing should I wear?

A: We require you to wear a shirt, pants or shorts, and closed toed shoes. If you have a long-sleeved shirt and long pants, it helps ward off any bug bites. Bring a jacket if you think you might get cold and rain gear in wet weather.

Tie back long hair so the helmet will fit properly, and secure eyeglasses and sunglasses with a retainer if you have one. If you have protruding body piercings that might get caught on branches, please remove or tape them over.

Q: Can I wear a hat?

A: Yes, if it will fit securely under your helmet.

Q: What if I forget to wear the right clothing?

A: We have shoes to rent and T-shirts and socks for sale. You're on your own for pants though!

Q: Should I wear bug spray?

A: Definitely if you do not have long pants and a long sleeve shirt. We do have packets of bug spray for sale. Bug spray and suntan lotion must be applied at least 30 minutes before you ride on a Segway PT to avoid soiling the equipment.

Q: What equipment will I wear on the Segway PT?

A: You must wear one of our helmets, which is adjustable to all head sizes.

Q: What can I bring with me?

A: It is best to leave valuables in our secured area before you leave as things can fall from your pockets and cannot be recovered from the rainforest. We do supply fanny packs at no additional charge if you want to zip up your valuables and carry them with you.

Q: Can I take photos and videos?

A: Gliders are not allowed to use cameras or video while riding, however we have helmet cams that can record your tour. We invite you to bring your camera or video recorder if you are not riding. Our guides will help you pose and take photos. We may have our photographer on your tour so ask your guides about photos available for purchase at the visitor center.
