What are safety tips for boating with your kids?


Hello, I’m Keith, the boating guy, and you may be asking yourself, “How do I go boating with small children?”

Well, here’s a few examples. First of all, start by wearing a life jacket. All children should wear a life jacket when they’re on board the boat.

The second thing is teach your child about boating safety. Establish boating rules and stick to them – such as stay seated while the boat is in motion.

Next, limit planned activity in small doses to children who have short attention spans.

Keep it fun, and here are some ways that kids can have fun on boats. There’s fishing, tubing, skiing, and of course, one of my favorites, swimming. Explore the environment. Check out live fish and other water creatures. Maybe carry binoculars or even a magnifying glass for the little bitty small things you see. Start a collection – rocks, shells, other natural objects. Keep toys and games aboard boats. Water toys, squirt guns – those kind of things can be lots of fun when you’re out on the water.

Boating is a great family fun thing to do and taking your kids out boating can be a lot of fun. So, good luck with you, I hope to see you out in the water.
