5) Save Money on Food While Dining on the Water

Do you want to dine on freshly caught local fish while looking out at the bright blue ocean? On a boat, every one of your meals will have this view. Your boat rental will usually come with a kitchen, allowing you to save money on food while still getting to enjoy waterfront dining. Head to the grocery store on your first day and pick up some local treats and staple pantry items. These will be perfect for low-key meals on your deck. If you feel like dining at a waterfront restaurant one night, there are sure to be plenty of options within walking distance of your boat dock. A boat rental allows you to save a large amount of money on food, while still being able to splurge a few times on memorable meals at local restaurants.
