Tips / Travel

Whether fishing in the British Virgin Islands, taking a yacht across the Mediterranean or anchoring off the coast of Thailand, boating can be an amazing journey. However, bringing along a few choice items can never hurt.



iPhone Satellite Phone Sleeve ($525/plan year)

Typically when boating, the only way to contact help in the event of an emergency is through an expensive satellite phone. Recently, however, the people at Thuraya developed a SatSleeve that can be attached to any newer iPhone.



Sperry Boat Shoes ($95)

Let’s face it — looking the part is half battle when it comes to boating. For authentic nautical chic, try a pair of Sperry boat shoes for men or for women.


Comfortmax Belt Pack ($80)

Lifejackets, while important for swimmers and non-swimmers alike, can often be bulky and intrusive. Conversely, the Comfortmax Belt Pack provides the same life-saving capability while only wrapping around the waist of the user.



Cobra Waterproof Bluetooth Speakers ($79.95)

A boating adventure is not complete without the right music. Don’t ruin your good speakers with salty water — instead try the Cobra Airwave Box.


Charissa Fish Seasoning Rub ($12)

After you’ve caught a tasty critter from the sea, try rubbing it down with a spice like Moroccan Charissa.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
