With COVID-19 restrictions finally gone, people are returning to the activities they enjoyed pre-isolation. One of these activities included boating, which many enjoy with their partner, families, and friends. This outdoor thrill gives you a kind of freedom that makes you feel extremely relaxed.
So, what’s your poison?
- A leisure cruise?
All these can get boring sometimes, which might put you off boating. The good news is that sailing can be made fun of in other ways. Let’s take a look at how:
If you have a motor boat, try wakeboarding. All you need for this activity is a life jacket, a tow rope, and a wakeboard, which will cost you around $500. You can reuse the tow rope every season. Just make sure to dry it properly.
You can make wakeboarding a fun contest for your kids by challenging them to stay upright for a longer time than others.
Tubing initially started as a practical way to transport a boat. However, it soon became a leisure activity by tying one end of the rope to the boat and the other to a tube. This water activity gives a huge adrenaline rush as you are dragged on the water.
Nowadays, you will find tubes that easily accommodate three to four people. This wild activity is safer than waterskiing for kids as it offers a larger surface to secure yourself on.
Barbeque on Board
A cruise isn’t complete without a BBQ on board. The good news is that you can now easily buy a small grill especially made for boats. All you have to do is screw it to the side of the boat. Pack your marinated chicken or beef in an ice box and once you have anchored your boat, light up that grill and have a delicious lunch or dinner on the water.
If you are tired of swimming, why not o snorkeling? You can either borrow the gear from a friend or rent it. Diving deep and swimming are fun activities. Here’s what you will get to see:
- Coral in unique shapes, such as mushrooms and staghorn
- Tiny clownfish and larger parrotfish
The underwater flora and fauna will mesmerize you. If you want to go a little deeper, consider scuba diving.
If you are looking for a fun workout on water, try SUPing. As a first-timer, keep your boat by your side to assure yourself that if you fall, you will be easily able to find your way to safety.
While on the board, focus on the horizon. Turn around and watch the birds, trees, and people ashore. SUPing is a unique experience that requires your complete attention.
So, which one is it going to be? We reckon that you will enjoy all these with your kids by your side. Go ahead and buy or rent the gear we have mentioned and store it on your boat.
