When you are planning what to do on your next holiday, a boat trip is a unique and entertaining way to spend a few hours or even the entire day. From getting an up close and personal look at marine life to seeing your destination from an entirely new perspective, there are plenty of reasons taking a boat tour is worth taking the time to do.

An Unforgettable Look at Everything that Calls the Water Home

Whether you are on the coast or landlocked, a boat trip still offers plenty of chances to see various types of wildlife you simply can’t see in other parts of the world. If you are on the coast, a dolphin or whale tour is a definite must. As an added bonus, you are likely to run across various species of seabirds, seals, fish, and more.

If you are farther inland, boat and yacht tours of rivers and lakes are worth considering. Depending on where you are spending your holiday, you may see anything from various types of fish and birds to alligators and crocodiles. Lake and river boat tours also give you the chance to potentially see other animals that live near or on the water, such as beavers, bears, deer, and more.

A Rare Opportunity to See a New City

Anytime you are on holiday, sightseeing is an absolute must. Of course, walking around can quickly get tiring and hot. This is why so many favorite holiday destinations, such as NYC, Paris, and Venice, offer boat tours of the city. Many cities offer day and night tours and take travellers past world famous attractions and top sightseeing spots, while also ensuring they get exquisite views of the city skyline. Most boat tours feature a well-informed tour guide, so that travellers get the full story about everything they pass.

See Places and Sights You Can’t Get See Anywhere Else

In some cases, boat tours offer travellers the chance to view places and sights they would otherwise not be able to reach. For example, glass bottom boats give you the opportunity to get up close and personal with everything from colourful tropical fish, manatees, and sea turtles to coral reefs and mesmorising underwater vistas. Depending on where you are on holiday, you may even be able to take a glass bottom boat to the site of a shipwreck.

A Comfortable Sightseeing Adventure

Many boat tours take place on boats that feature comfortable seating and have an attentive skipper and crew at the helm. In some cities, boats are available that are temperature controlled and even have refreshments on-board. In most cases, boat tours only accommodate a small number of guests, ensuring guests have great views of everything and can easily ask questions.

Holidays provide the perfect opportunity to try something new and different. If you have never taken a boat tour, it is time to think about doing so. With boating holiday prices set to increase in popularity and price over the next two years now has never been a better time to take the plunge and go on a cruise or boating holiday expedition.

With all of this success you can expect more Boating holidays to be advertised on a TV or cinema screen near you.
