Today is the day for most of the Brevard County School district. Kids are headed back to school, and the ability to pick up the phone and reserve a boat for a weekday afternoon is quickly dwindling away. But don’t fret there are a few precious days you can savor the time with the kids before they’re back to their school-time routine. Here are a few ideas of how to spend a wonderful afternoon on the river with your kids.
- Pack a picnic – Choose your kid’s favorite, boat-friendly foods like cheesy crackers, tasty sandwiches and their favorite juice to bring a long in the cooler. Cookies are always a great snack at sea.
- Grab some fishing poles – Drop a line in the water and try to catch a fish you haven’t been able to all summer. If you keep catching puffer fish, have fun and then set them free.
- Blow up the tube – nothing says goodbye to summer quite like one last tow on the tube. See if you can hang on longer than you did last time. If your teens have finished up their boating safety class this summer, let them take a chance at the wheel.
- Invite the whole family – Make your last summer boating excursion memorable by inviting the whole family. Grandma, aunts, uncles, and cousins can all fit on one of our pontoon boats. A boat is the best way to celebrate the end of another successful summer with the whole family.
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you have to pack up your boat membership and only use it on special holidays. The beautiful weather in Florida affords you 52 weekends you can use as stay-cations. Have any questions about the best way to make the most of your last days with the kids before they head to school? Give us a call and reserve your boat today.
