4 Reasons That Dad's Love Boats

Father's Day will be here Sunday, and BomBay Boat Rental Company has the best idea for you... reserve one of our Lake of the Ozarks boat rentals and take Dad out on the water!  Just imagine the great big smile he will have from getting to spend a day with his family cruising along the gorgeous Lake of the Ozarks.  Here are 4 wonderful things that make Dad's love boats.   


1. Family Time

Boating is a great family activity.  You can pack a cooler full of food and drinks, grab some beach towels, and take everybody out for an entire day of fun.  Find a quiet cove and spend some time swimming in the water, or bring along the fishing poles and see who can make the biggest catch.  If you've got an active Dad, take out a tube or some water skis and see who can go the longest without falling off.  A day on a boat together is sure to make lots of happy memories for the whole family.


2. Tranquility 

The view from the middle of the Lake of the Ozarks is very likely one of the most relaxing and gorgeous sights that you will ever come across.  Our tritoon boat rentals offer plenty of room for everyone to sit back and unwind.   Sometimes weekends can be a bit crowded with other boats, but that doesn't change the beauty of our magnificent lake.  A beautiful end to a day out is catching the sun setting over the water.

3. Adrenaline Rush

Do you have the type of father that prefers excitement over relaxation?  Maybe you would be more interested in one of our ski boat rentals.  Put your dad behind the wheel and really let him open it up.  The main channel of the Lake of the Ozarks stretches 92 miles, so there is plenty of room to really pick up some speed and explore.    

4. Fresh Air

Getting outside is good for the body and the soul.  Boating is especially great for dads that don't get out much anymore or have a job where they are stuck inside for 8 hours a day.  The fresh air, the warm sun, and the wonderful atmosphere around you is sure to make it one of his best day's ever.  

So there you have it.  Get your father outside and on a boat this Father's Day.  Between the fresh air, the beauty, the fun, and the fact that you are there with him, he's gonna love it!  Make your boat rental reservation today to guarantee that you can spend Sunday on the Lake.  BomBay Boat Rental Company wishes all of the Dad's out there a very happy Father's Day.

11 Beach Bag Essentials For a Day on the Water

BomBay Boat Rental Company has the best boat rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks for you to take out on the water, but there are a lot of essentials that you should bring with you.  These items will help you to have a much more enjoyable day out on the lake. Grab a giant beach bag and get ready to fill it up.  

1.  Sunscreen
You will be directly in the sun while you are on the boat, and probably for an extended period of time.  Especially if you will be stopping in a cove to swim. You should reapply sunscreen every couple of hours and after swimming to maintain coverage.  Your day on the lake may not be a good memory if you are burned for days afterward.   

2.  Sunglasses
The glare off of the water can be blinding.  The safest sunglasses for your eyes should protect you from both UVA and UVB light.  
3.  Hats
It's pretty hard to put suntan lotion on your head if you have hair, and ears are often forgotten about when sunscreen is applied.  Having a hat handy is wonderful when you aren't ready to get off of the water but your face and head have had enough heat.  

4.  Towels
It's best to bring along one for each person plus a few extras.  There is a good chance that a few will get too soaked to dry anything, and you may want to use some to clean up spills and splashes rather than just to dry off.
5.  Drinks & Snacks
If you bring along a few non-perishable snacks and something to drink, you can spend more time on the water without having to look for a place to stop and eat.  The sun will make you thirstier than normal, and swimming works up quite an appetite.  Pack a few koozies to keep the beverage that you are drinking cold longer.  Also, a roll of paper towels is great to have around just in case.  

6.  Water
This gets it's own number separate from snacks and drinks because it is so very important.  You will want to stay hydrated when you are out in the heat for long periods of time, and other beverages just don't work as well.  It's extra important if you are consuming alcoholic beverages.  They go down pretty easily when you are on a boat and staying hydrated can make your day last longer.

7.  Cooler with ice
You'll need something to keep all of those drinks cold and refreshing.  This also allows you to bring along some food that cannot be left out in the heat.

8.  Trash Bag
You'll be tired after being out all day, and cleaning up as you go saves a lot of time and energy at the end of the day.  Empty beverage containers and food wrappers can pile up quickly.    

9.  Charged Cell Phone
Just in case of an emergency, make sure that your cell phone is fully charged when you head out.  Also, there are lots of local apps that can help you find out where the fun spots to stop are on the shore.  It's wise to have a waterproof case for your phone, or at least a sealable bag so that it stays dry.

10. Floaties
The most relaxing way to enjoy the water is sitting on a floatie and just chilling out.  These come in all shapes and sizes, and will keep you afloat while you hang out with your gang.  

11. First Aid Kit
It's always wise to have the basics handy.  Small cuts and scrapes can be taken care of right away without having to rush to shore, interrupting your fun day. 

Besides those essentials, here are a few other items that are nice to have with you.  

  • Fishing license & equipment
  • Waterproof camera
  • Change of clothes
  • Plastic bags for wet items
  • Aloe Vera Gel

All of theses items can help to make your day a lot easier and more enjoyable. Contact us today to make your Lake of the Ozarks boat rental reservation.  You can do it online or give us a call at 1-888-259-6096.  We have 3 convenient pickup locations, or you can arrange for us to deliver it to you.  You are just a call away from an amazing day out on the Lake of the Ozarks.
