Back-to-school season is here, and fall will follow before you know it! Of course, here in South Florida, warm weather and sunny skies allow the cruising fun to continue all year long. Read on as we share a few fun ways to celebrate the season from your very own boat.

Learn about local history…

This year, you can step—or, rather, cruise—into living history with your family! Supplement your child’s studies by exploring some of South Florida’s beautiful waterfront history. From the Jupiter Inlet Light, which once served as a Navy Radio Detection Finding Station during World War II, to the Miami Marine Stadium, which has hosted high-profile visitors like Sammy Davis, Jr., Elvis Presley, President Nixon and more, there is no shortage of history to be discovered from the comfort of your very own boat!

… and nature, too

An on-the-water adventure is a great opportunity to learn about science and nature, too! Your curious child will enjoy discovering the physics behind your boat cutting through the water and the wake it leaves behind, or the way weather develops on the water and leads to one-of-a-kind displays of rain, wind and lightning over the horizon (hopefully long after you’ve returned to shore, of course).

Study in a splashing new environment

We’ve all been there—when it’s a tough set of homework problems or complicated work project, sometimes it helps to get out of your current environment to get the creative juices flowing! Find inspiration on the open water, where your child can catch up on reading as you idle or simply take a much-need break when it matters most. In fact, studies show that exposure to fresh air, natural light and outdoor views can help improve productivity and overall wellbeing—so what better reason to take a breather on the water?

Make the most of downtime

During a busy school year, in which you’re shuffling from school to work to extracurriculars and beyond, spare time feels extra special! Make the most of it by enjoying fun, just-because boat trips with the family. After all, who says Tuesday afternoon can’t be the perfect time for an after-school adventure? Or that Sunday dinner has to happen on land? Write your own rules and enjoy family fun on the water all school year long.

We hope that these ideas help you enjoy back-to-school season to the fullest!
