Staying Safe On A Private Boat in Crete

Staying safe from the sun while on a boat in Crete is important to prevent sunburn, skin damage, and other health risks associated with excessive sun exposure. Here are some tips to stay safe:

  1. Wear protective clothing: Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothes that cover your arms and legs. You can also wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to protect your face and eyes.

  2. Use sunscreen: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher at least 30 minutes before going out on the boat. Reapply every two hours or more frequently if you are swimming or sweating.

  3. Seek shade: When possible, stay in shaded areas of the boat, such as under a canopy or umbrella. This will reduce your exposure to direct sunlight.

  4. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, especially if you are in the sun for extended periods. Avoid alcohol and caffeinated drinks, which can dehydrate you.

  5. Take breaks: Take frequent breaks from the sun, especially during peak hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Use this time to relax in a shaded area, reapply sunscreen, and drink water.

  6. Be aware of reflective surfaces: Water and other reflective surfaces can increase your exposure to UV rays. Wear sunscreen even if you are in the shade and wear protective clothing if you are near reflective surfaces.

By following these tips, you can enjoy your time on the boat in Crete while staying safe from the sun. It's important to take sun safety seriously to prevent skin damage and other health issues associated with excessive sun exposure.
