Whether you’re moving from the yacht into the tender, or from the tender to a Virgin Islands anchorage, being able to carry what you want makes all the difference.
YETI’s Camino carryall has a place to put all the charter essentials—no matter whether it’s in the 20-liter size for daily adventures or the 50-liter size for longer trips. Both sizes are waterproof, easy to clean, and have dividers that provide support to keep everything upright. And both bags are available as part of the new Bimini Pink collection, inspired by the Caribbean’s conch shells and sunsets.
And, the YETI Camino carryall is a good match for the YETI Hopper M30 soft cooler, which has a new, high-performance magnetic-closure system—a design engineer’s way of saying that it will stay open while you’re loading it with snacks and drinks, and will be easy to close when you’re ready to move again.
What else to put inside? Here are 15 of our favorite ideas.
1. YETI Tumbler and Rambler Mug
The YETI Tumbler and Rambler mugs are available in the new Bimini Pink collection too, along with the all new Offshore Blue option, giving you the ability to mix and match with your Camino Carryall at raft-ups.
2. Polarized Sunglasses
When you’re out on the boat, you need serious sunglasses to protect your eyes against ultraviolet light. Look for polarized lenses, as well as scratch-resistant lenses.
3. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
These handheld speakers are great for the beach. Look for models rated IP67 dustproof and waterproof, which means that they will keep pumping out the bass even if they get splashed.
4. Personal Locator Beacon
This palm-size gadget is a satellite communicator that gives you two-way messaging anywhere, including where cell signals are spotty.
5. Reef-Friendly Sunscreen
Some sunscreens are made with chemicals that can damage coral reefs. Opt for a mineral-based sunscreen instead. It will protect your skin and the underwater environment.
6. First-Aid Kit
A day at the beach is great fun, but inevitably, somebody gets bitten or scratched. Have a small stash of anti-itch cream, antibiotic cream and waterproof bandages at the ready.
7. Waterproof Notebook
Whether you’re a poet at heart, or you just like to keep track of every detail at every waypoint you visit, a waterproof notebook is a great way to preserve your thoughts.
8. Underwater camera
Some of the best models available today will shoot still photos, capture videos, stabilize themselves, and send everything into the cloud for storage or sharing.
9. Waterproof Pouch
Whether you want to carry cash or have a backup for your smartphone case, a small, waterproof pouch can be a lifesaver in a variety of situations.
10. Water Shoes
Stepping in and out of the tender gets a whole lot easier with a good-fitting pair of water shoes. They’re also great for beachcombing, paddleboarding and kayaking.
11. Hand Bearing Compass
Heading ashore for a hike on unfamiliar turf? A hand bearing compass fits in your palm and has a lanyard for the neck or wrist, so you’ll be able to find your way back to the boat.
12. Quick-Dry Towel
Some of the towels available today can dry three times faster than regular towels, making them great for beach use and quick repacking in your YETI tote bag.
13. Panama Hat
The Panama straw hat is a timeless classic. It will take you from the boat to the beach to the dockside bar, shielding the sun while keeping you looking fashionable.
14. Swimming Goggles
Salt water can irritate your eyes. A good pair of swimming goggles is just as important as a good pair of sunglasses. Look for newer tech that scans your face to custom-fit goggles to it.
15. Multipurpose Flip-Flops
Yes, flip-flops can do more than just protect the bottom of your feet. Some of the models on the market today have built-in bottle openers in the arches.
