Take your camera to a camera repair center at a camera shop. They will show you how to care for your lens and how to clean it properly. However, never use a lens tissue. We use a certified lens cloth. You can buy them in 18% grey and then use it for white balance. When we arrive at a shoot and get the camera out, the first thing we do is blow the lens off with compressed air, wet the glass with professional lens cleaner and then wipe it with a lens cloth. Then, we use the cloth to white balance. We recommend that you do not white balance with actual white cards. It's a long story but the camera shop guys can explain it to you.

Always carry a can of air and a good lens kit. And get a lens filter on there.

That salt water air will destroy everything.
