Inflatable Life Vest: Just like the kind on airplanes. They are small and compact and inflate quickly.
Locator Beacon: These small devices will send out your location to rescuers. Just make sure you get the waterproof kind.
Mini Survival Tool Kit: There are many brads to choose from, just make sure to pick up one that focuses on surviving in the ocean.
Sometimes men just have to prove their dominance over nature. It's just genetics.
Here are just some of our favorites that have been collected over the years.
Paracord and Straps: Paracord can be used for a gazillion things and you can wear it as necklaces or bracelets for easy packing. And bring some straps for your hat, sunglasses, etc.
Sunscreen and Sunglasses: The sun can be brutal out there on the water, so make sure to protect your skin and your eyes. Those things are kind of important.
Personal Distress Light: Again, to help your rescuers spot you. There are several different types of these lights, but definitely bring one along with you.
Shark Repellent Wristband: You survived a ship going down. It would totally not be cool to get eaten by a shark while adrift.
Waterproof Phone Case: Because it would suck to miss out on some ocean Pokemon Go action.
