How to stay cool during your Boat Trip

Staying cool on a boat in Florida, especially during the warmer months, is important for your comfort and safety. Here are some tips:

  1. Wear Lightweight Clothing: Opt for breathable, light-colored clothing that covers your skin to protect against the sun's rays.
  2. Use Sunscreen: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF before going out on the water, and reapply regularly, especially after swimming.
  3. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration, especially in the heat.
  4. Seek Shade: Use the boat's canopy or bring a portable umbrella to create shade on the boat.
  5. Cooling Towels: Use cooling towels or bandanas to help regulate your body temperature.
  6. Stay in Motion: If it's safe to do so, keep the boat moving to generate a breeze.
  7. Cooling Devices: Consider bringing portable fans or misting fans to help stay cool.
  8. Time Your Outings: Try to plan your boating trips during the cooler parts of the day, such as early morning or late afternoon.
  9. Swim Breaks: Take regular breaks to swim in the water, which can help you cool down.
  10. Know the Signs of Heat Exhaustion: Be aware of the symptoms of heat exhaustion and take immediate steps to cool down if you or anyone on the boat shows signs of it.
