Top Outdoor Activities for Boaters
Make your outdoor escape and explore the many things to do on or with a boat. From engaging in a deep-water swim, exploring unchartered territory, to gazing up into the sky at the stars during a night boating trip, it’s all possible in the great outdoors on the water.
The Ultimate Snackle Box
Are you ready to reel in a fun new trend in snacking this summer? We are—and are loving this! If time to prepare a meal for a boating trip is limited, or you are uncertain about what to bring, have no fear. With these suggestions, simplicity is the main ingredient. You can never go wrong with pre-cut fruit or fan-favorite snacks such as popcorn. Don’t let your crew go hungry—snackle box it up, and take it on the go!
National Fishing Week and Boating Week June 3 – 11, 2023
Boating and fishing enhance our quality of life, but did you know it helps preserve our country's natural beauty? A portion of all fishing tackle, license sales, boat supplies, and registration sales fund the conservation and preservation of our nation's waterways through the Sport Fish Restoration Program. Therefore, every time you purchase a fishing license or register a boat, you are helping improve the natural places you love! Speaking of fishing, we have some great tips on where to target some of the most sought-after fish. Find out how below!
Enjoy the Great Outdoors While Protecting our Water
At MarineMax, we love the great outdoors and the water! And our partnership with the Guy Harvey Foundation (GHOF) to help conserve marine environments through scientific research and educational programs helps us also do our part to keep our beloved waters clean. You can help protect the water too by practicing things such as keeping trash out of lakes, oceans, and other bodies of water; not dragging anchors across coral reefs, shellfish areas, or seagrass beds; reusing cups and dinnerware; disposing of blackwater out at pumpout stations, and only using eco-friendly products in the water.
Water and MindfulnessIt’s a proven scientific fact—being in, near, under, or on top of the water can help your mind and promote mental well-being. If riding the waves, taking in the sounds, boating, or swimming about on this wonderous and cleansing creation is not enough to convince you alone, listen in to this From the Helm| Boating Broadcast, Blue Mind: Water is Medicine with guest, Dr. Wallace J.
