Relaxing and unwinding is an important thing to do especially if you have gone through a very tiring work week. We all need to have a break from the office, from the busy lifestyle and also from the chores at home. We all want to spend more time with our families and bond while we are relaxing and taking a boat trip is an excellent way to do both. Through it you can breathe good air and see many beautiful locations.
Any boating adventure is more enjoyable when you take family or friends with you. Fishing, diving, any variety of games and even a party or two are all viable options on board a nice boat. Ian investment in a larger vessel may pay off as it will allow for a greater diversity of enjoyable activities. On some luxury vessels you can watch movies, drink some wine and enjoy a full bar.
Yachting is said to be the past time of the elite because it can only be done by the very rich. For those that own a yacht, they usually tend to personalize them by adding or painting custom designs the way they wish. However if you cannot afford a yacht maybe a day trip whose cost is split amongst several friends is a viable option.
The biggest thing that sets boating apart of course is the fact you can travel to different locations. Currently Dubai is one of the sailing hot spots. They offer three man-made islands which offer extensive boating facilities and you can spend some quality time. There is also what they call the “pearl of the south” which is in Phuket, Thailand. Phucket offers unparalleled natural beauty including beaches, waterfalls, bays, coves and limestone formations and exotic wildlife. For those who are doing a little more yachting and a little less sailing Monte Carlo has been a favorite destination for years. A little less yacht oriented is Cannes which is located in the south of France and is known for sailboats with magnificent designs. If you are not looking to travel to exotic locations or simply don’t have the time a quick trip to Miami is an easy choice.
A key thing to remember is that any sailing trip is going to have some downtime. Don’t forget to bring amusing distractions like board games or some form of electronic entertainment system. A little careful planning and you can exploit the natural opportunities as they present themselves. For instance if you happen to travel near whale migration areas a little whale watching might be in order. If you have to stop for fuel and supplies take the time to get in a little snorkelling or scuba diving. Many of the layover ports have world class fresh seafood as well. Don’t underestimate taking a nap in the middle of nowhere with calm soothing seas gently rocking the boat, and clean cool air filling your lungs. By taking advantage of these opportunities you will expand your horizons and have great stories to tell when you finally head home. Remember its all about relaxation and maximizing your enjoyment.
