Default Waterproof Wallets

Arriving at Ft. Lauderdale day before cruise. We've been looking for waterproof wallets but are unable to find them in Canada. Does anyone know of a place close to airport or cruiseport where these can be purchased? Are they reasonable priced?

Check out a luggage specialty store.. even at home. Most will carry accessories. That's where I found my water proof fanny pack, and not expensive.

Try magellan.com and check out the "Splash Caddy" or aperfectwallet.com. I've seen several posts recommending them and am thinking about getting one myself. But may check local luggage store as Kuki recommended first.

Try the kayak section of your sporting goods store.

We have one, but I don't remember where we got it. We never use it anyway. As an ex-Air Force survival instructor, when I'm afraid I might get my wallet wet, I put it inside a condom and tie it shut. Pretty cheap insurance. Just don't get the pre-lubed kind. Seriousy...it works well. ZipLok bags work, too, but will leak long before a condom will.

Go to sporting goods stores. I would not buy the round type. It is hard to fit dollors and credit cards in. We took both the round and the flatter kind. We never used the round one.

If you cannot find one, don't worry, the cruise ship stores on board will have some. They have on all of the royal Carribean cruises I have been on.

Just go to any boating goods store and they willl have a number of diff. options.
I got a small flat kinda box thats waterproof and it worked great. you can fit some money, your cc cards and your curise card in it. Also was only like 6 bucks.

Hpoe this helps
