Stay safe this spring and summer!

The first time that summer sun starts to heat up and peak through the clouds, everyone in North Idaho is out and about, trying to catch just a hint of that spring warmth. We know, we’re doing it too! Any excuse to get out of the office and into that sunshine, we’ll take it! And after the gloomy, gray northwest winters, can you blame us?

However, now is not the time to go frolicking about without a care in the world. The sun is out, which means there’s still a chance for sunburn and over-exposure to ultra violet rays. Regardless if you’re on a cruise or playing on the beach, here are some quick tips to stay safe this year!

  • Wear sunscreen
    Even though the rays may seem weak when it’s not sweltering out, long exposure to the sun can cause serious damage over time. A quick layer of sunscreen before you spend time outside can prevent both long- and short-term damage— think beginning of the season sunburn!
  • Cover up
    Yes, we’d like to start wearing shorts and tank tops too, but a light layer can also help protect you from sun exposure.
  • Stay hydrated
    While you’re playing in the sun, make sure you’re taking regular break to drink water. It is recommended to drink eight glasses per day, but that number goes up if you’re sweating or working out. 

So start your season off right, and stay safe this year. If you’re looking for a plethora of fun things to do this summer, check out our specialty cruises or contact us today!
