There is nothing more relaxing that spending the day on the water. The way the boat moves when it’s still in the middle of the water is one of my favorite memories. When I close my eyes, I can almost put myself there. However, boating is not all about relaxing; it’s about the whole experience. Going boating is all that and a bag of chips, not even joking. There are so many things to do on the water, relaxing is for when the day is fixing to come to an end, and the sun is starting to go down. Well, that’s when we do it anyway, lol.
I have so many favorite boating memories and hopefully plenty more to come. Boating has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. There have been a few years that have passed where I have not gone, and it didn’t go without being missed. There is so much fun to be had on the water.
Here are a few of my favorite things to do on the water! Grab your life jacket and let’s discover boating and all the fun to be had on the water.
Oh yea, how can one forget about tubing. If you have not been, I say it’s about time you give it a try. It’s super fun, and tubes are one of the most popular types of towable that you will find on the market right now. There is a wide variety of shapes and sizes but at the end of the day, they all do the same thing, allow you to have a great time on the water.
I love fishing; it’s an excellent time just to relax and collect your thoughts. It’s so easy for me to get lost in watching the water move that I tend to forget I’m supposed to be fishing lol.
Camping on the beach
If you are going out for the day why not stay the night so you can wake up early and hit the water first thing in the morning. There is nothing like the water first thing in the morning!
Just swimming in the water is an excellent way to cool off and enjoy the day.
OMG, this is one of my favorite things to do on the water. I still remember learning how to wakeboard; it took me a while, and I was super sore the next day, but I did it and to this day love it.
If you haven’t tried water skiing yet, I highly suggest giving it a shot. Personally, I prefer wakeboarding, but water skiing is tons of fun too.
Yes, kneeboarding and it’s harder than you might think. It takes work to pull yourself onto the board and to stay up after you learn how to get there is a whole different ball game, but ti’s a fun watersport that is for sure.
I have not had the chance to try this yet, but it done’st mean I won’t. Flyboarding looks so fun; I can’t wait to give it a try.
There are so many great memories to be made on the water with the family. If you have children I cannot suggest some type of youth boating program. Being safe and learning about boating and being on the water will only make them love it more.
To think of all the fun you can have and you don’t even have to own a boat! Yes, it’s possible to get out there and test the waters and start building memories with your loved one before running out and purchasing a boat. Be sure to check out the Discover Boating Get On The Water Tool to find easy access to boating near you.
Did you know that 82% of Americans say being on the water is relaxing? It also isn’t surprising that 84% of parents think their kids would be more likely to unplug while they were on a boating trip, and go wakesurfing, wakeboarding, and waterskiing. I’d also have to agree with the 72% of those who say they feel healthier after spending a day on the water. It’s hard to be lazy while you are on the water and it’s a great way to get the whole family to unplug for some quality tie together.
