We are on the 7nt Magic on the 27th did not buy the Safe Sea as planned. Does anyone know where they sell it in Port Canaveral? Would they have it where the town cars make the grocery stops? My kids and I have experienced jelly fish larvae stings in the past and it is the only thing they have any concerns about.

Thanks for any suggestions

I think I read on the boards that they sell it at Ron Jon's Surf Shop. :)

You can order it from www.lifestylesdirect.com. The bottles cost $9.95 ea. They have several spf ratings also. Just be aware the the bottles that have the spf30 rating have all come in with exp dates of 1/04.

I'm sure they have overnite, express shiping.

Good luck.

Ron Jon in Orlando doesn't carry it, so I am going to call the store in Cocoa Beach tomorrow and see if it is something they keep in stock. If that is the case, then we'll just leave early and pick up a bottle on our way to the port the day of our cruise.

Someone said Walgreens carries it, but when asked, they told me to go on the web and check a store that was near the beach since they don't have that item inland.

Hopefully we'll find it somewhere!

Just incase you cant get some before you get on the ship... I saw some at a surf /souvenir shop in St Thomas that was in that little strip type mall right next to the port. The shop was across the parking lot from Cold Stones creamery. You wont have it for St Marteen, but you'll have it in time for CC.

BoardwalkBabe- any word from the store in Cocoa Beach? I would prefer to just purchase it there, if they stock it.

Is it really necessary? I mean do all seasoned cruisers use it? We've never had any and I wonder if we were just that lucky not to have been stung???

I have never used it nor needed it but from what I understand, sea lice are seasonal. I have cruised in late April/early May and November and neither time was it a problem. I am curious to know when it is necessary.

My family and I have been stung on 3 occasions: Once in Corpus Christi, Texas, in Virginia Beach, Beach, and Charleston, SC.
Now, we have swam all over the world on beaches without being stung. But I certainly wish I had known about SafeSea those 3 times. Actually, it is more important to me to have it this time, as our time in the water is so limited.
The way I figure it, why not take precautions even if I find it is un-
necessary. Esp as my kids are older and remember it!
IMHO

I bought mine at Ron Jons before our May 2002 cruise. It wasn't in an obvious place, but they finally found it for me.

nswift,

Just wanted to let you know that those two bottles are on your way to the Hotel you sent me. It will arrive on March 24th.

Enjoy your trip and hope you have a magical cruise.

Glad I could help out.

Walgreens at Cocoa Beach does not have it and now Ron Jon tells me they don't carry it either. Hmm. At this point, I guess we'll just go without it and hope for the best!!

Ditto. I did the same thing -got 2 bottles of SPF 30 for $9.95 each plus shipping (regular shipping was less than $5.00).

dtheboys,

I was the one that rescued nswift with the sending of "safesea" to her hotel before her cruise, anyway, Sea Lice as it is called is seasonal and depends on water temps, water movement/currents etc. It's hit and miss. When I tell people what the are, I refer to the "Finding Nemo" movie and Dorys little "squishy" which is a baby jelly fish. Use size as a persepective.

There is a good site to look at which describes what sea lice really is. It is www.nidaria.com or www.safesea.net.

I have ordered replacement bottles already and plan on using it because insect bites and me don't get along.

So better be safe then sorry.

Any other questions, ask away.

dtheboys,

You can order safesea from www.lifestylesdirect.com.

You have to look on their home page for the listing in the right side of the page. I believe it says something like lotions, personal care products??.

The company mainly sells "tan thru" swim suits but it's also an authorized distributor of safesea.

Hope this helps. It usually takes 5 days to get it by regular ground. They use fedex.
