Discover Boating and A World Full of Water Fun

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation

Growing up I loved being on the water. With friends and family, it was always part of my life, especially living in Florida and living on the beach. This summer has been no different. While we haven’t been out on an actual boat….yet….we have had on the water fun. We still have plenty of summer left to enjoy boating and we fully intend on doing just that, just like we did last year.

Boating is such a big part of our lives, we can head to Crab Island in Destin Florida and have a blast. Crab Island is such a fun place to go to if you own a boat. Essentially it’s beautiful teal waters, with a sandbar that boats, jet-skis, and other water vessels anchor at. There are floating restaurants, floating slides, it really is a great way to have a day of fun in the water.

Just Boat


91 percent of Americans believe there are benefits for children to be on the water, including: getting outdoors; appreciating nature; spending quality time with family; and disconnecting from technology.”-Discover Boating/Kelton Research, 2012. I have to agree, it’s great to get your Vitamin D, and with all the water sports you can do with a boat you can get a bit of a workout too! But before you get that boat, you want to do your research!

Disover Boating is a great resource for anyone who is ready to boat. That means if you are just starting out, or have been boating for years. Especially if you haven’t had a chance to get your feet wet this summer, check out the links below. They may help spur some ideas and waken your inner boater.
