With warmer temperatures on the way, it’s only a matter of time before the kids are begging to be back out on the water. Being on and around boats and exhibiting proper boat safety is a big responsibility for kids, especially younger ones. As children age, what’s expected of them on and around the boat will change. You can give them additional responsibilities, including docking and water safety measures, and task them with ensuring their own life-vests are snug and secure. Children are incredibly curious; they will probably be excited to learn boating terminology, how to tie proper knots, and how to be a “good” little pirate.
We’ll cover a lot of these topics in this guide, so buckle up, lean into the wind, and get ready to learn proper boat safety!
