Ask any angler or boater what’s their favorite outdoor recreational activity and they will tell you that probably nothing comes close to the excitement and fun of being on a boat. From thrill seeking excursions to competitive angling trips along with hours where you just want to switch off and relax – there are so many ways to have a good time when you own a boat and love being on the water!
If you are looking to do something aside from your usual boat routine, here are five unique ways to spruce up your next boat day:
For an angler fishing may be the only thing they do when they are out on the water but for someone who doesn’t spend much of their time trying to land a bite, why not plan a day with a fishing buddy for some fun yet competitive fishing? Do your research on what spots would be the place to go during this time of the year and prepare your fishing gear according to the techniques you plan to use.
A New Spin on Takeout
How about a stop at a dock-and-dine restaurant next time you feel like grabbing a meal outside the home – by yourself or with a loved one? One of the most enjoyable things about owning a boat is having access to waterfront spots that you wouldn’t frequent otherwise. Find a nice spot with a beautiful view that you’ve been wanting to try out and enjoy a meal, courtesy of your boat.
How often do you avail the opportunity to dive off the swim platform of your boat? If not too often, why not have a go the next time you are on your boat and enjoy a scenery you don’t get to view very often. Pack a snorkeling mask and fins and jump into the water to see some corals and marine life. Pick a spot in advance and make sure to pack an underwater camera to capture some of the great views and moments this little excursion can bring you!
Try Out Some Watersports
This is a great option for thrill-seekers who are always looking to spice up their time out on the boat with some adventurous activities. Between wakeboarding, water skiing and riding tow-toys – the choices are plenty! Wakeboarding can be a great exercise if you have a wakeboard and tow rope while water skiing can give you hours of fun in the sun with your family and friends too! As for riding tow toys? With the new variety of inflatable tow toys available today, there’s no shortage of space for you and your crew!
Read and Relax
Sometimes being away from all gadgets, screens and even family and friends is the best way to take out time to do something for yourself. If you haven’t spent a relaxing day in weeks, use your boat to give you the perfect escape and spend the day lazing on the water with a good book you’ve been trying to take out time for!
