There’s nothing like feeling the breeze through your hair while you’re on a boat on the lake. Before looking at Lake Chelan rentals, there are a few things that you should consider about the type of boat you get and the safety aspects to consider. The busiest time for renting a boat is Memorial Day to Labor Day. If you know that you’re going to be on the water in the summer, then you want to make reservations for your rental as soon as possible so that you get a vessel that is large enough for your family and one that everyone will enjoy. If you wait until the off-season, then you can usually get lower rates on the rental and have more options available as many businesses are willing to offer deals so that they make some kind of money when people aren’t on the water.
Make sure everyone on the boat is prepared for any kind of weather condition that might arise. When you’re on the lake, it’s usually hot. This means that you want to have swimsuits and clothing that doesn’t cling to the skin. You also need life jackets on the boat not only for the safety of everyone on board but because it’s often a requirement by the state. Keep plenty of sunscreen with you because the sun’s rays will be reflected off the surface of the water. This can result in sunburns that occur much faster than if you were on land or if you were at a pool. A cooler with beverages for everyone in the family is an idea to consider as well. You also need snacks in case you spend more time on the water than planned. Pay attention to the boating laws in your state, and make sure you have all of the proper documents with you in case you are stopped while on the water.
