Planning your summer vacation might look a little different to you now than it did in years past. Before you had kids, planning a day on the lake required little more than deciding which swimsuit to wear and remembering to pack sunscreen. However, just because that carefree approach may be a thing of the past doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of your trip to the lake this year. Our team at Power Sports Rental Network wants you to take a deep breath and remember that a fun day at the lake is still possible with these expert tips.

Boat Rentals with Kids

1. Start Early

With kids, timing is everything! You need to be mindful of meal times, nap times, and bedtimes. An early arrival time makes it easier to get the most out of your day on the lake. If your kids are still young enough that you need to work around a nap schedule, an early arrival time will make that easier. If they’ve graduated to no naps, or just an afternoon nap, hitting the lake early will still mean you’ll enjoy less crowds and you can get indoors before the sun is at its strongest.

2. Pack Early

A day out on the lake in a boat rental requires a lot of gear for anyone, but especially for kids. Be sure to pack plenty of snacks and drinks to keep your little ones happy during their boat ride. Additionally, it’s a good idea to bring plenty of towels and a change of dry clothes (and diapers). While adults can be content to take a boat ride in a wet swimsuit, we have found young kids are happier when they’re comfortable and dry.

3. Plan for Water and Land Fun

We love boats rides and staying out on the lake all day. However, we encourage you to consider some other activities that can make fun and exciting memories with your kids this summer. Don’t become too much of a lake cruiser. Instead, consider renting one – or more – of the following:
