As a former dive instructor, getting into a wetsuit in the water is not going to happen. You either have it on already, or you don't have one. A dry survival suit is what you really want if you won't have a raft. You can rent a raft. Still, you have much more to consider.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
