Several years ago someone said to me "You don't dress like a live aboard" and I took that as a compliment! I always have at least one knit, black dress, which with a pair of sandals and a sarong around the shoulders makes you feel quite dressed up.Hike it up and you can climb in and out of the dink just fine. Long sleeve white shirts I think are a must to keep too much sun off. I agree with wide brim hats, lots of sunscreen (don't forget ears and tops of feet). My husband keeps a pair of kaki pants on the boat. The new stain, wrinkle resistant ones are great. Quick drying is a must. All cotton t shirts take a long time to dry so look at sportswear for quick drying alternatives. I love my Keen shoes-they can get wet, and I hiked for two weeks in Galapagos in them. You might be doing a lot of walking so it's nice to have some decent support for your feet.
