Things to Pack for a Boat Trip

Heading out on the water for a day of fun is one of the greatest feelings, but you always have to be prepared for what will come your way while you’re out there!

We’ve put together a list of a few essential things to take along the next time you’re cruising in the gulf around Corpus.


Lots of people put sunscreen on before they board or leave for their boating journey, but it’s always a good idea to bring extra sunscreen. SPF preferences vary, so definitely consult with a dermatologist if you’re concerned about protecting your skin while on the water.


It is surprisingly easy to work up an appetite while you’re enjoying a day on the water, so make sure to pack more snacks than you think you need. Make sure to pack bottle water and easy-to-eat items like pre-made sandwiches, pretzels, etc..

A Solid Boat Playlist

By far the most important thing to pack along when you’re boating is a playlist that slaps. Your friends and family are on the boat for a fun time, so make sure you put some effort into the music mix you’re cranking throughout the day. Each time of day is different, and you want to have a good mix of tunes so everyone’s entertained. Don’t load up on a bunch of Ratt tunes or pigeon-hole yourself into a single genre.

If you have more questions about what to pack along before your next boat trip, feel free to reach out to us. We’re on the water around Corpus Christi all the time and we’re happy to answer your questions. To learn more, contact us today and we’ll help!
