How to Enjoy Your New Boat Dock

So you’ve heeded the advice about boat docks, and had your very own addition installed onto your Sarasota waterfront property. Congratulations! We’re glad you made the decision to take full advantage of living in Florida. We hope you are as happy using it as Priority Marne was when they designed and built it. Maybe you’d even be willing to hear a few suggestions on how you might take even further advantage of your new addition. Yes? Great! Let’s get started.

Take Up a New Outdoor Hobby

Sometimes it’s hard to think of activities that are outside of our normal routines, which is sad, because it means we miss out on a lot of fun. Remember, you already have a boat dock! That’s the hardest part. Maybe some of these will require the addition of a specialized boat lift, but Priority Marine can handle that for you.

Think of a watercraft that you have never taken out for a spin, or things you can do on the water that you haven’t tried. Have you ever:

  • Gone kayaking through the mangroves? Sarasota is close to any number of these amazing and serene places. It’s an experience that you won’t forget.
  • Taken a jet ski out for a spin?
  • Simply fished a whole Saturday away from the comfort of your very own boat dock?
  • Tried paddle boarding?
  • Considered nature spotting? Manatees and dolphins aren’t uncommon sights in Sarasota waters. There are also countless species of sea and marsh birds that are native to Florida.

Host a Luau

Don’t just invite friends over to your Sarasota home for drinks on the water, invite them over to an over-the-top, tropical and authentic, Hawaiian luau!

Ensure that you dress the part, and provide each of your guests with flowered leis (they can be fake). Don’t forget to line the path out to your boat dock with lit up Tiki torches that can be easily obtained from your local home improvement store. At your waterside entertainment area, you can string lights from the gazebo and serve drinks in coconuts (prepare those in advance) from your bar. Tropical music is mandatory.

With the right preparations you can turn an ordinary get together into a fun memory for everyone.

These are just some of the things you should consider taking advantage of, the next time you feeling like doing something new in Sarasota. Don’t be afraid to break from the routine and have fun!

Note: If any of these suggestions don’t match the style, size, or additions you originally chose to have constructed, don’t panic. Priority Marine can modify or add onto most boat docks they have constructed!
