Most people may think of summer as the best season to go boating, but this isn't always true. It really depends on what you want to get out of the experience. If you're looking for a relaxing way to get out and enjoy the hot weather, then sure, summer boating certainly fits the bill.
However, if you prefer crisper air and taking in the orange, red, and yellow scenery, then a fall boat tour may be for you. Indeed, for some of us, there's no better time to go on a boat tour than in the fall. Here are three reasons why you should do a boat tour this season:
1) Beautiful Views Become Even More Stunning
Fall is arguably the most picturesque season of the year, and what better way to take in the autumn scenery than from the water? There's something about being on a boat that makes the views even more breathtaking. As you cruise along, you'll get to see the leaves changing colour in a way that you can't from land. It's truly an unforgettable experience.
These incredible views also make the perfect backdrop for some fall photos. So if you're looking to capture a special moment or occasion in some pictures, a boat tour is the ideal opportunity.
2) Fewer Crowds
Since most people associate boating with summer, you'll likely experience fewer crowds if you go in the fall. This can be especially great if you're going on a guided sightseeing tour, as less people usually means a quieter atmosphere. You'll be better able to focus on the presentation, and may even get a few questions in if you want to learn more.
A less-crowded boat also means you'll have more space to yourself, allowing you to enjoy a more intimate experience. This can be a great opportunity to bond with your family or friends, or even to get to know your fellow passengers better. Who knows, by the end of the tour, you may even make some new friends!
3) The Temperature is More Bearable
Summer can be unbearably hot, especially if you're stuck on a boat in the middle of the day. Fall, on the other hand, is the perfect temperature for boating. You'll be able to enjoy being out on the water without feeling like you're about to melt!
Since it can get a little chilly out on the water, though, remember to dress for the weather. In most cases a warm jacket or sweater will do the trick, but definitely consider the temperature before you set sail. Fortunately, if you still find that you're a little underdressed, you can always head below deck to warm up.
The Bottom Line
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to consider a boat tour this fall. You can enjoy the gorgeous views, avoid the crowds, and stay comfortable in the cooler temperatures. So why not give it a try? You may just find that you prefer fall boating to summer boating after all!
