Summer is the perfect opportunity for people to spend their time outside. From spending time out in the garden planting flowers to enjoying a relaxing day out in the sun, there are many fun activities that people can do with some extra hours of daylight. The best day to, literally, get in some extra time is Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year.

For those who may not be familiar with Summer Solstice, it can be described as as the day when the sun is at its highest point in the sky during a year – usually mid-June. It is noted as the time when the summer season actually begins in the northern hemisphere. Many use this day to kick off summer vacation. And, why not. The sun is in the sky the longest that day. As it is the longest day of the year, why not get in some extra fun on the water?

Don’t forget your essentials to make the most of your outing.

  • sunglasses
  • 30+ SPF sunscreen
  • hat
  • water/drinks
  • food
  • music

Depending on your boat and what you find enjoyable, don’t forget the things that make you sweat.

  • wakeboards
  • water skiis
  • tubes
  • fishing gear

Whether it’s the family-loved used boat or your prized yacht, spending summer solstice with family and friends is the way to go.
