With beautiful views and stunning landscapes, nature can be a romantic and invigorating place to spend time with your partner. With ideas from the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation, we’ve gathered these boating-centric date ideas for an unforgettable experience that combines adventure, fun, and romance.

Picnic on a Beach or by a Scenic Spot
If your partner is a foodie and likes to dine with a stunning backdrop, a picnic at your favorite beach or next to a waterfall is great! Pack a picnic basket with all their favorite food and drinks, grab some blankets, and cruise to the perfect spot. Schedule the picnic at sunset for some extra romance.

Double Date with Friends
Leave the kids at home and gather a few couples together for fun day of carefree boating. With friends accompanying you, dates become more entertaining and conversations never run dry. Enjoy the thrill of the waves together and make your time on the water a positive shared experience.

Go Fishing
What better bonding experience than catching some trophy-sized fish together? Fishing is a relaxing pastime made even better when shared with your significant other. It’s easy to spend the whole day together and rack up lots of quality time.

Have a Moonlit Dinner on the Water
With a pontoon or deck boat, you already have the perfect place to set up a romantic dinner. Use your audio system to play romantic tunes, set the table with candles and tablecloth, and pack a favorite meal for the two of you to enjoy.

Take a Sunset Cruise
Go on an evening cruise and take the time to hold hands and watch the sunset together. A peaceful time of day can give you the space to create more connection with each other. Reminisce about your favorite boating adventures together and plan new ones to take in the future.

Nature is the grand unifier and brings so many people together. Whether you and your partner are dating, just talking, a new couple, or have been together for years, the great outdoors is a great destination for your next date. It allows you to slow down, live in the moment, and enjoy the quality time with your loved one in nature.
