Go Pro Camera

What boating adventure is complete without having a GoPro camera at the ready to capture all of your fun and exciting exploits?

Just as you would with a car, you can easily mount these cameras to your boat. They can be attached to the bow, the stern, the mast or any other part of your boat that the camera can be secured to.

We won’t make recommendations for any one type of camera, as there are so many and everyone’s tastes are different. But this is one boat accessory that you’re definitely going to want to have at your disposal, so you can capture all of the water sports, fishing and just overall hijinks that you’ll be having out on the river, lake or ocean.

Boat BBQ Grill

When you think of gifts for sailors, can you think of a better product than a boat grill? I mean, what better way to enjoy a day at sea than by grilling up some burgers and enjoying them with an ice cold beer?

So the next time you’re out at sea with your buddies enjoying a day of fishing and/or water sports, fire up the grill and enjoy!

Cordless Margarita Maker

Since we’re on the topic of food, why not grab your list of boat accessories and add a cordless margarita maker to the mix. We’re not telling you to leave the beer at home, of course, but who doesn’t love a delicious frozen margarita from time to time?

These products don’t need a generator or even a cord. Just throw in your tequila, add some lime juice and your favorite flavorings and your margaritas are ready to go.

Waterproof Power Bank

In today’s ultra-connected world, you don’t want to be out on the open water and realize that your cell phone or tablet has run out of juice.

A waterproof power bank should definitely be on your list of must have boat gadgets, as we all need a way to reliably charge our mobile devices.  Just be sure to purchase one that’s waterproof, as it will almost certainly get wet while on the boat.

Doggie Ladder 

If you take your four-legged friends with you on your boating adventures, then you’ll want a way for your dog or dogs to easily hop back into the boat. And that’s what these fun-loving products are meant for.

This boat accessory is designed with man’s best friend in mind and is very easy to attach and remove at a moment’s notice.

This lightweight accessory is a must have boat gadget, if your furry friends enjoy swimming and will be accompanying you on your boating adventure.

Aerial Drone

Drones are all the rage nowadays, and just think of all the awesome video footage you can take out on the open seas if you had one. Film your time on a jet ski or a pontoon boat, record your buddies all hanging out and having a good time or make a “day at sea” video that will be treasured for years to come. Just be sure to buy an amphibious model that floats, so you don’t have to worry about damaging the equipment should you misjudge your landing. There are several different types of amphibious drones on the market today, so you’ll have plenty to choose from when going shopping for this must have sailing gift

Polarized Sailing Sunglasses

If you’re going to go sailing, you need to look the part. And that starts with these cool sunglasses that will have you not only enjoying the day, but looking your very best while doing it.

But coolness aside, these products also have the added benefit of protecting your eyes from the sun. Regular sunglasses are better than nothing, but they’re not going to protect your eyes the way that these polarized items will.

Polarized sunglasses generally come in several lens colors, ranging from low light all the way to extremely bright light options. If you’re not sure which one is best for you, ask around before putting them on your credit card.

Inflatable Paddle Board

In addition to a jet ski and other fun accessories, a stand up paddle board is a great item to have on any boat.

But for boaters, inflatable paddle boards are a much better option than the regular variety. They’re not only portable and easier to store when the trip is done, but they’re also a good deal cheaper than the fiberglass models.

So hit your sporting goods store and see what your options are. Stand up paddle boarding is not only all the rage these days, meaning you’ll definitely be one of the “cool kids,” but they also provide a great workout and have been proven to help reduce stress.

Thermal Mug

Okay, so this one may not seem like it would fall under the “cool” category when it comes to sailing gifts. But think about how uncool it would be if you didn’t have one.

I know, right?

If you’ve been swimming or just having fun out on the water all day and are heading back at dusk or even dark, you might very well want a hot drink to warm you up.

But don’t let the “thermal” part fool you – these mugs keep cold drinks cold just as well as they keep hot drinks hot.

Floating Beverage Cooler

As far as boat items go, this is one that’s great to have around. If you’re out swimming with your buddies and don’t want to climb back onto the boat to grab a drink, these floating coolers can attach to the back of the boat and allow you easy access to all of the frosty goodness.

Many come with removable and reusable ice packs that will keep your beers, juices and waters chilled for most of the day, so you need not worry about your drinks becoming hot and undrinkable.

One thing not to forget, as we’ve all been there before, is a bottle opener. There’s nothing more frustrating than anticipating an ice cold drink and then not being able to get to the contents inside.

Waterproof Dry Bag

Again, we’re not sure how high this ranks on the “coolness” scale, but it’s definitely something anyone should bring along with them for a day on the boat. You’re going to be on the water and things are going to be getting wet – there’s just no way around this. So bring a dry sack with you to store all of your items that you want to keep dry, like your cell phones, a couple of t-shirts and shorts, some shoes, towels and whatever else you’ve brought along with you. Most of these bags even float in the water, just in case they fall overboard and need to be retrieved.Dry 

Captain's Hat

Have you ever watched Gilligan’s Island or McHale’s Navy and wish you could play the part of the captain on your own ship? Well now’s your chance skipper! These specially made captain’s hats will make you the envy of your passengers and remind everyone just who the boat owner is in the group, even if it’s in a fun and playful way.

Full Face Snorkel Mask

If you’re heading out for a fun day on the boat, then doing a little snorkeling is a great activity for all. These new items are made for the ultimate snorkeling adventure, providing a full 180 degree viewing area so you can see more fish and sea creatures. They also allow you to breathe comfortably through your mouth without having to worry about holding onto your snorkel. A lot of these full face masks also come with a GoPro mask, so you can easily record your experience for future viewing, and maybe even discover a few things later than you didn’t see the first time.

We’re talking today about all the cool boat accessories that are fun and will help you have the absolute best day out on the water.

But don’t forget the essentials, most of which will help ensure your safety during a day at sea.

Things like batteries, battery chargers, flashlights, life jackets, a knife, a whistle, fire extinguishers, flares, life preservers and others are essential to making sure that not only is everyone having a good experience, but also that they’re being safe and protecting themselves and others at all times.

If you’re out having the time of your life, but an accident occurs as a result of someone not having a life jacket, your memories of a fantastic day will likely be tainted for a long time to come.
