Trip advice
If you are travelling with an infant/ toddler, you must carry baby foods, diapers as the whole day will be in the middle of the sea.
For my toddler, I carried baby food and there were unlimited fresh fruits all day so didn't have any problem.
Take an extra set of clothes as if get wet in the sea you can change. You need to cross the water while going to telegraph island.
Sunglasses must. Carry sunscreen lotion if allergic to sunlight
