Seven Fall Boating Activities to Keep You Connected

With the 'dog days' of summer behind us, fall is one of the best times to enjoy your boating lifestyle. Fall boating is the perfect escape for an adventure in the cooler, crisp air and less harsh rays. From fall fish to catch to events, classes, and more, there are plenty of fun reasons to keep boating during the turn of the seasons. Below are seven activities you can enjoy with friends and family that will extend your enjoyment of being United by Water.

  • Fall Events

    A number of MarineMax stores have events in the fall since many want to continue to be on or near the water, even in cooler temperatures. From Docktail events, Boatoberests, Halloween parties, and more, there's always something exciting happening at MarineMax!

  • Exclusive MarineMax Getaways!®

    When the weather starts to cool, fall Getaways! can be even more enticing. If you want to continue to enjoy nice weather on the water without the harsh summer sun, MarineMax Getaways! during the autumn months are always a great choice. Later in the year, Florida typically hosts the most events at fantastic locations such as Key West. The British Virgin Islands are also an option.
