Tips For Boating With Children

Boating season is just around the corner and everyone will be preparing and loading up their boats at the Lake of the Ozarks for a day full of fun out on the Lake. Many families will be spending time on the water swimming, sunbathing, and even dining. Being out on the Lake is usually an all-day thing, whether you are into watersports or you plan on coving out. If you are venturing out with kids of any age, you will want to do some pre-planning. Iguana Boat Sales has some things to take into consideration so that you can be prepared: 

Kids Get Bored Easily

While most adults love a long leisurely boat ride on the water, soaking up the sun and the scenery, kids can get bored and soon will want to move on to something different. Make sure you plan to make the day family-friendly by getting in the water at some point to do some swimming, water-skiing, tubing, or paddle boarding. If you think your cruise will be longer than the younger ones can handle, pack some fun activities to keep them busy on the boat.

Make Sure Your Boat is Well Stocked Up

Besides the necessary items, such as life jackets and a first aid kit, keep the boat stocked with extra sunglasses, sunscreen, and towels. You never know when you might forget something and it is not convenient to go back and get it when you are out in the middle of the Lake. Extra clothes and swimsuits for younger kids can come in handy too. Kids get hungry easily, especially when they are swimming or doing any water activities. Be sure to stock lots of snacks and drinks for an extended stay on the water.

Safety Should Always Come First

Always have younger children wear their life jackets. Make sure to check the weather forecast first before heading out and listen to a radio on board. Don't take any chances. Head back if you see any developing weather. Having waterproof clothing on board will come in handy if you get caught in bad weather. Double check that all of your flares and visual distress signals are working properly and that you have all necessary safety equipment on board.

Always Have a Plan B

On holidays and busy weekends, it’s crucial to have an alternative plan or two, in case the waterfront restaurants are overly crowded or the main channel is too choppy. Kids can get impatient waiting, or you may just be uncomfortable having them out in the lake when the water is so rough. Get out earlier in the day and find a quiet cove to do some swimming or paddle boarding.

Iguana Watersports Has Something for All Ages 

Being on the water with your family is one of the best ways to spend your time at the lake. Let the best boat rental company at the Lake of the Ozarks help you get ready for a perfect weekend for fun in the sun. Iguana Watersports can provide you with a boat, paddleboard or other equipment to keep everyone in the family entertained, including the younger ones! If you are looking for something for the older kids to do, we also rent waverunners at the Lake of the Ozarks. We have 3 locations to choose from for pickup and also delivery options.
