Looking to expand your boating repertoire with activities you’ve never tried before? We’ve compiled a few of our favorites to help get you started. (Most of these are easily modifiable to follow Covid-19 social distancing recommendations, so you can get out there and have a blast while keeping yourself and others safe from exposure.) Try one or try them all!
Organize a Raft-Up
Circle up with a group of fellow Whaler owners for a laidback day of swimming, relaxing, and sharing stories and sunshine.
Fish in a Tournament
It’s not always the most seasoned angler who takes home the trophy. A little skill and a lot of luck can be a prize-winning combination. Search online for fishing tourneys near you.
Hit the Road
Set your sights on a destination in a new state, then hitch up your trailer and go! We know of a few good itineraries for visiting Tennessee, Utah or Maine…
Keep It Clean
Give back to the waterways that give us so much: Participate in a local conservation organization’s cleanup efforts, or organize your own Marina or Beach Cleanup Day. For more inspiration, check out this story about the sport of Trash Fishing, invented by a Whaler owner.
Embrace a Theme
This one’s especially fun for kids: Turn your Whaler into a pirate ship for the day! Raise a Jolly Roger flag, speak “pirate talk” and create a scavenger hunt to search for buried treasure on a nearby beach or sandbar.
Navigate at Night
Navigational equipment has come a long way, but there’s still satisfaction to be gained from tuning into your senses and teaching yourself a new skill. (Plus, who doesn’t love searching the sky for constellations?) Ask your local Boston Whaler dealer for recommendations on a night boating class in your area.
