Austin. Miami. Chicago. No matter where you’re headed for your bachelorette party, there’s a chance—especially during the summer months—that an epic boat party will be involved.

Be prepared to seas the day by stocking up on the essentials, below.

  1. 1. This cute kit has it all: sunscreen, aloe gel, a hair tie, “deodorant towelettes” (yes, really) and more.
