Will be going to San Pedro 7/9-16 and have been reading the stories about pica pica. Will I need Safe Sea in July? If so, does anyone know where I can buy it in California or can I just wait until I get to S.P?

If you've been reading the stories about Pica Pica, didn't any of them mention that the season should be over by then?

Sam...I bought our Safe Sea ....just to be safe... at drugstore.com. $7.95 with sunblock spf 30. I bought two bottles, they're only 4oz and it was 5.95 for handling..No shipping charge for three day delivery.
We'll be there July1-11 staying at Banana Beach. Where are you staying??

toy4irma (I'll get your name right this time),
Thanks. I'll check out the website. I admit I "skim" the website posts so probably miss details along the way. Am staying at The Palms and would be delighted if you stopped by.

I noticed that there is a Safe Sea for divers. There is no sunscreen in it. Most of the people have mentioned the SPF 30 version. Would anyone make a recommendation for divers?

Seems to me that if your intention is to rub it all over your body in places that the sun don't shine, the SPF version wouldn't be that necessary. Since you can buy two bottles with a slight discount, you may want to consider getting a divers bottle and a bottle with some level of SPF (15 or 30) to cover your face and the back of your hands.

We just returned from our annual trip to Hilton Head. At this time of year you have a 50/50 chance of coming in contact with some kind of stinging nettle. We didn't need the Safe Sea in AC this summer so we had a couple bottles, then I ordered more on-line (drugstore.com) for the extended family (4 adults & 2 kid - thankfully staying elsewhere laugh ). Anyway, we all used it. No stings whatsoever. Mom-in-law actually saw a jelly float across her wrist...no sting!

We gave a bottle to our favorite lifeguard. She had heard of Safe Sea, but never seen it. That evening the guards had sea trials including a long swim way out into the ocean. Well, next day we got the report. She was the only guard who didn't get stung.

Of course, if Safe Sea becomes popular, we won't be able to watch the Jellyfish Dance anymore. Folks won't be jumping around like banshees in the water when they get stung... :rolleyes:

Note: Meat tenderizer is good for application immediately after sting. The lifeguards at HH keep a mixture of vinegar and water on hand in spray bottles for after sting.

That's the best testimony I've seen to date.

I suspect that the lifeguards at Hilton Head are putting a little run on the product just now. www.nidaria.com is probably getting a lot of hits on their ordering site this week. smile
