Making Memories Boating With Children

Tags: Boating | Boating with Children | DiMillo's

There is something quite magical about boating with children. Whether on a lake, a bay, or a river, being on the water can spark a sense of wonder and adventure in kids! There are always things to think of when preparing for a voyage with the youngest generation.


Be sure to have properly fitted life jackets on board and teach children basic safety rules, such as staying seated while under way and holding handrails while moving about. Make sure you and all guests are familiar with safety features to know what to do in case of emergency.


You should pack plenty of water and snacks. Packing sunscreen, hats, and extra clothing will help to keep everyone comfortable on the trip. Books, toys, games, and other age-appropriate entertainment is also a great idea.


When boating with children, take the opportunity to teach children about the natural world. Point out different wildlife you see, explain the basics of navigation, and discuss preserving our waterways. Use the experience to foster a sense of curiosity and appreciation for the marine world.


Finally, while it can be enjoyable and rewarding to boat with children, as with any activity, set realistic expectations. You may have to take shorter trips, plan for naps aboard the boat, or adjust your itinerary at any time.


This year, take the opportunity to embark on an unforgettable voyage with your children or grandchildren to foster a lifelong love of adventure and create memories!
