How About Some Barefooting on Board?

Do you like water sports? Then, try to sail with barefoot sailing cruises and enjoy the fantastic experience. Barefoot requires you to travel at very high speeds. The speed will keep you upright!

Once your feet have touched the surface of the water, you create resistance. Let your toes remain up, and your legs straightened to avoid buckling up. The resistance calls for some extra pull from the kite. With this, you will be able to skim across the water surface and be on the surface and not in the water.

Barbeque on Board

When thinking through the things to do on a boat, leaving this out will be absurd. In different cultures, gathering around the fire for BBQ has always been a symbol of bonding and getting together. This is a replica of what happens on board. It is the best plan to organize on a boat trip.

Some few hours into the sailing and after everyone has known their way around the boat, and the cool sea breeze has warmed your appetite—it’s now the best time for a barbeque. Anchor in a bay and do some outdoor grilling. Our watercraft has a standard built-in grill on the decks.

You Just Can’t Forget Tubing

Boat tubes began quite humbly, with a person lashing the end of a rope to the inner tube of a truck and the other end of the rope to a boat. This water sport has now become a thrilling water-based activity. Tubing gives you an adrenaline-induced excitement of being dragged along the waters at very high speeds. Explore your wild sides in this activity.

Our water tubes are usable and very comfortable. Additionally, they are a lot more fun. We have some designed for single riders and others for two people.

However, you can purchase tubes for three and four riders at a time. Tubing is a wonderful way of getting your whole family or group of friends together in the waters. It inspires a love for water that could last for a lifetime.
