Life on deck: 6 Reasons Why I Love Boat Trips

Aug 15, 2016 | Latest Posts, Life, Reflections, Stories, Travel

Boat trips are often overlooked as a way to see the world. We always seem to have limited time, so we fly, we play the typical tourist role and hardly ever let go to truly explore. After going on my first cruise back when I was little, I had instantly fallen in love with everything about boat trips. Since then, I’ve been very fortunate to enjoy the life on deck a couple of times more and be able to really explore the beautiful Mediterranean. Every trip I’ve taken, would always make me end up wishing for more days at sea. So people often ask me why I love boats so much. Here is my answer. The top reasons why I’m totally in love with the life on deck.

  1. The way it makes me feel

While on board, nothing really seems to matter, that’s the magic of it. Whether you go on a two weeks long cruise or a daily boat trip, whether you arrive at your destination or  you reach somewhere else, or maybe you  never get anywhere at all… Once you are out there in the blue, life instantly gets better.

  1. The simplicity

Spending your days on a boat equals simpler life, period. You hardly ever use any electronic devices. You don’t rush from place to place. You have no real timelines or deadlines or stress. Most importantly, you learn how little a person needs in order to be happy.

  1. The awareness

I have always been environmentally-conscious. However it is definitely much harder to live a “green” life while on land. Going on a boat trip even for a day makes me feel more connected to the nature. It instantly brings back the awareness, hence it makes me much more conscious when it comes to most of the decisions I make daily, from water consumption to shopping choices.


  1. The sunrises & sunsets

Life on a boat means you have at least one open horizon. Sunrises and sunsets just never get boring. For people who like sun gazing as much as I do – there is no better place for it than the middle of the sea.

  1. The wildlife

 From tropical birds to beautiful dolphins, there is so much wildlife to be seen! It’s absolutely beautiful.

  1. The adventure

 Some days are great, some not that much – but days are always an adventure that leaves you with a story. It never gets old, never unexciting.
