Boating is so fun and exciting. Even with the excitement, you can’t forget to prepare for safety. You should have a basic first aid kit for headaches, seasickness, and dressing wounds. A dry bag will help you secure essential items—a cellphone, wallet, camera, clothes, etc.

Things can get a little hot while exploring the waters. Don’t forget your cooler full of ice and cold beverages. You also need sunscreen, food, and towels for your boating trip.
