Discover Boating this Summer

I am a Discover Boating Ambassador through a Mom Central Campaign and am excited to share my love for boating and the endless possibilities for having fun on the water this summer. I grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida and spending time on the water was a big part of my life. I have such great memories from boating, canoeing, fishing, and being out on the water with my family. It’s something I want to pass on to my own son, nieces and nephews.

Discover Boating this Summer

You don’t have to live near the beach to enjoy boating. Now that my family is living in rural Georgia, we’ve discovered the fun of boating out on the lakes and rivers. While we don’t have our own boat at this time, it’s always fun to go out with friends on their boat to enjoy water sports like tubing. There are so many ways to enjoy boating from owning your own boat, going out on a friends boat, a romantic sunset cruise, or even renting a boat for a day while on vacation.

Discover Boating this Summer

If you’re planning to take the family out boating this summer, I encourage you to check out the Discover Boating web site for information on boating with kids, boating education, and safety tips. It’s important to be safe when boating, and Discover Boating has a lot of valuable information that you’ll want to know before hitting the water. They also have some fun games, and recommended books to help get your kids excited about boating. If you’re not sure where to get started boating this summer, I recommend checking out a boating club or organization near you.

Do you have any plans for boating this summer?

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received collateral to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

  1. I love the water and I love swimming. With boating it depends on the type of boat and who is in control. But I do love being near water.

  2. We don’t really have a place to boat around here but I used to love being on a boat when I was younger. Anything on the water is great for me! I’m going to check out this site in case a boating opportunity comes up this summer!

  3. We love going tubing!! I have not been in a couple of years though. We need to head to the lake.

  4. We have gone tubing for the past few 4th of July weekends, but this year we’ll be headed to the mountains.

  5. I never grew up on or near a lake, I never learned out to swim, and I wasn’t on a boat until well into adulthood, but I would love to change that since we live near several lakes now. I would like my son to have a different experience than I did. So maybe I will get to discover boating this summer!

  6. Not this year as we’re spending our summer moving! But we used to love going to my sister’s cottage on the lake back when we lived in Canada, it was one of my favorite natural places to visit.

  7. Boating is such a fun way to spend the summer!

  8. I haven’t been on a boat in years. Growing up on Long Island we went to the beach often, my brother had a jet ski and there were various cruises to take around the island.
    Have fun this summer on the lakes and rivers!

  9. boating can be a ton of fun.

  10. I spent quite a few summers on our boat as a kid but my own children have yet to experience those same joys. I know they would love tubing so we’re going to have to give it a go sometime soon.

  11. Thanks for sharing, I hadn’t heard of Discover Boating before! I love the water and my in-laws have a lakehouse so we’re up there a lot!

  12. this looks like so much fun. I’ve never really done the boating thing but it does look so fun!!

  13. I haven’t done it yet. :) But, would love to get more into water sports. Looks like a blast!

    It looks like so much fun! I would love to get my boys out on the water and we just moved close to a Reservoir so this inspires me to get going!

  15. We live near lots of lakes, but don’t have a boat of our own.

  16. I haven’t been boating FOREVER.
