Pontoons are spacious and practical boats, perfect for getting out on the water and enjoying life with the people you love. If you own a pontoon boat or are planning to rent a pontoon, here are four ways to get the most out of your vessel and your vacation time:
Pontoons are one of the best options for waterside sightseeing. Seats are on the sides of the boat and extremely comfortable, while unobstructed views allow for sightseeing in all directions. Some well-equipped pontoons have added features that make this activity even more enjoyable, like an on-deck stereo and refrigerator. The easy drivability, open visibility, and comfy seating offered by today’s pontoons are perfect for taking in the sights.
Pontoons are great for leisurely fishing, thanks to an open deck and stable hull. Pontoons are best-suited for fishing on waterways and lakes. However, they are not your best choice, nor are they recommended for, deep ocean fishing.
3. Tubing and Water Skiing
Tow-along water activities like tubing are lots of fun on pontoons. New models have 4-stroke engines with enough power and speed for water skiing as well. What’s more, everyone on deck has a great view of tubers and skiers for taking pictures and videos.
4. Family Time
Pontoon boats bring people together for fun on the water, and for this reason, they are popular with families. Roomier, less dangerous, and more fun than driving around in a minivan, parents and kids love the freedom that pontoon boating affords. A weekend with the family is more fun when you can zoom over the water, stop for a swim anytime, go tubing or skiing for hours, and enjoy one another’s company on the deck.
