6) Explore off the Beaten Path
When you rent a boat, you won’t be limited to just visiting places that tour companies go to. You can get off the beaten path and visit islands that only people with their own boats can reach. Before you leave for your vacation, spend time researching hidden gems that are near your boat’s dock. Also, when you get to your destination, talk to locals about their favorite spots that are reachable by boat. Use these local insights to create an itinerary that’s full of destinations that are off most tourists’ radars. Having your own boat allows you to visit places that you would never get to see if you were staying in a hotel and had to rely on charter boats. You’ll be able to put together an adventurous itinerary that’s truly unique.
