Research Weather and Area in Advance

As you begin to pack for your trip, it is important to research the weather in advance. While you need to bring items with you in the event of rain, it will help to know what temperatures will be and if there will be rain. Throughout the year temperatures are at their lowest in December in January with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the low 70s. It is the warmest in June through October, with highs in the upper 80s and lows in the high 70s. The area sees the most rain in May through November, and humidity is highest during this time, too. You can find the George Town, The Bahamas 10-day weather forecast to plan for your trip.

Packing Musts

Upon having an idea of what the weather will be like during your trip to the Exumas, you will have an idea of what clothes to put in your bag. Make sure you dress for the weather and even if the changes for rain are low, bring rain gear just to keep you covered for a pop-up shower. Next, be sure you pack comfortable shoes to be on your feet all day. If you will be hiking, consider purchasing hiking shoes if you do not have any. Pair your shoes with light clothing that will be comfortable to walk and climb in. Last, make sure you bring a pair of binoculars to see sights far away, as well as your camera to take great photos.

Tips for Great Photos

You do not have to be a skilled photographer to take great photos during your sightseeing trip. It just takes a few techniques. You can even use your smartphone if you would like to save space or do not have a camera. First, focus on finding balance on what you would like to take a photo of. You can center the item, meaning there is equal space on each side. You can also use the “rule of thirds” and use a corner on one third of your frame. For instance, if there is a boat sailing in the ocean, you can take a photo with the boat in the far left of your frame leaving the other two-thirds of the photo with open ocean. You can also learn how to take your travel photos to the next level in the editing phase to maximize them.
