· vacation,Lifestyle,Outdoor Recreation

(BPT) – Want to get away this summer? Skip the plane ride or long car trip and get out on the water. Whether it’s an hour after work cruising, a morning of fishing or a weekend of watersports, boating provides all the benefits of vacation at your convenience, close to home.

 

With many people working long hours, the need to take vacation time is greater than ever. According to the U.S. Travel Association, four in 10 Americans are not using all their paid time off. Boating benefits a person’s overall well-being and can be more accessible than many think.

 

Take A Class

Sign up for a boating lesson to hone your powerboating, sailing or watersports skills by mastering the basics while having fun along the way. Popular options around the U.S. include boating classes, on-water training courses, watersports camps, youth boating programs and more.

 

Rent A Boat

Rental options are available on most waterways and provide hourly or daily access to a variety of boat types. Rental outfitters should provide tutorials on operating a boat, share safety instructions and offer suggestions on destinations.

 

New to the mix are peer-to-peer rentals, allowing you to rent someone else’s boat, which usually includes insurance coverage and captains for hire. Cruise out on a rental boat from the Marina on Lake Petit in Big Canoe, GA or pick a spot along the shore to cast a line. Visit http://bit.ly/2qdOhk8 for more information.

 

Share The Fun

You don’t need to own a boat to join a boat club. Clubs and shared ownership programs allow you to share a boat with others, split the costs and book your time on the boat online. These clubs and programs also maintain, clean, insure and store the boats and many provide on-water training.

 

Whether on vacation or staycation, these 3 insider tips provide fun, stress-free ways to get on the water this summer.
