Every traveller has travelled or will travel by boat at some time in their life. Some love it and some don’t like it at all. But, like everything in life… it has its advantages and disadvantages and here we come to tell you today what some of them are. 

There is no doubt that renting a boat is a truly amazing experience, and it also allows you to spend your holidays in a different way. Especially in summer, we can take advantage of sunbathing in the sea, and we can take a dip as many times as we want. No means of transport can match the experience of taking a boat to any beautiful corner of a cove, or visiting some of the most spectacular places in the world from the sea. 

They say that good things come to those who wait, so let’s save the good things for last and start with the disadvantages.

Disadvantages of travelling by boat:

  • Feeling of drunkenness. This feeling can last for hours, days or weeks, depending on the length of your trip. Although if you think you’re feeling seasick inside… wait until you get off the boat!
  • Slow travel. 
  • It’s not exactly cheap. Travelling by boat is somewhat expensive, but it’s totally worth it.

Advantages of travelling by boat:

  • Travelling by boat is relaxing. One of the best sensations is the feeling of peace, calm and tranquillity that passengers experience when they get on the boat. Being away from traffic jams and noise pollution, listening to the sound of the sea in the background is undoubtedly one of the most relaxing sensations.
  • The beautiful views. On your boat trip you can take beautiful pictures of the scenery and enjoy the magnificent sunsets and sunrises.
  • You can carry more luggage, as you are not checked on the number of suitcases or bags you carry.
  • You don’t have to go through security controls, so boarding is much quicker.

These are the most important advantages and disadvantages of travelling by boat. What do you think? Would you add any more?
