Even as it pretty much feels like a perfect summer day nearly every day of the year in San Diego, we still get excited over the summer holidays. Gifted an extra day off work while still getting paid, knowing that we are that much closer to our annual summer vacation, and being able to spend this very important holiday aboard a very beautiful boat, exploring the waters that surround our section of paradise.
Is it any wonder that all the summer holidays, starting with Memorial Day, are our absolute favorite days of the year? And before you point out, very reasonably, that Memorial Day falls firmly in the middle of the spring season, we also would like to point out that traditionally, this unique holiday has always been the kickoff to summers of fun! And when you are a member of the Carefree Boat Club, you don’t have to settle for just one boat, and you don’t have to worry about maintenance fees, storage fees, or any of the extra expenses that accompany boat ownership!
Pay a monthly fee or bundle it into one annual payment and spend every holiday aboard the well maintained vessel of your choice! This guide to a Memorial Day spent enjoying all the wonders of the sea will give you a peek into the freedoms you can enjoy with a Carefree Boat Club membership!
Celebrate Your Way
Just as Carefree Boat Club offers a large variety of boats, there are many ways to celebrate Memorial Day, ensuring that you can honor this holiday in your own unique way! Grab a few of your friends, fill up some coolers with your favorite foods, and hit the waters aboard a very spacious Pontoon boat! Turn up the music, unfurl the awning so you can stay shielded from the sun, and just enjoy this party called love in the briny ocean air.
You don’t have to have any destination in mind, just going where the waters take you, and if your cooler is full of beverages, pick a dock and dine location (Portside Pier on San Diego Bay is always a good choice!) and still be as close to the water as you want! Family adventures may need nothing more than one of our Bow Riders/Deck Boats, spending their Memorial Day showing off their skiing and tubing skills and giving the kiddos a greater appreciation for real life, taking them away from their video games for a few precious hours!
But maybe you have plans at home with your family, enjoying a backyard barbecue with neighbors and friends on your guest list, stopping by your local cemetery to place a flag on the final resting spot of your own military hero, or exploring the expanse of the USS Midway Museum, honoring those who have passed with this special visit. Does that mean you have to give up on any plans to enjoy Memorial Day on the sea? Absolutely not! It just means you have to get creative with your boating session, placing your names on the books for a dawn trip aboard one of our fishing boats allowing you to enjoy a few solo hours drowning worms as you pit your wits against nature!
Our fishing boats offer the latest in technology and fishing gear, helping you catch the biggest fish and maybe providing an alternative to burgers or hot dogs at your barbecue later in the day! Or you can plan a sunset cruise with your favorite sailing partner aboard one of our cruisers, again with no particular destination in mind, just taking this opportunity to enjoy a few more hours on the water! There are no wrong ways to cruise the waters of San Diego, just many wonderful options that will allow you to celebrate the long weekend before heading back to your desk and office, a day you really don’t want to think about!
Destination: Excitement This Memorial Day
Even the smallest adventures become monumental escapes to excitement when on board a Carefree Boat Club vessel! Put a new spin on a day in the park when you dock near the world-famous Balboa Park, enjoying the journey as much (If not more than) the destination. Enjoy lunch on a patio overlooking the vessel of your choice, cruise around Point Loma, discovering a new way to view one of the most historic spots in San Diego and when the sun sets on your day of adventures and fun, head back to the dock and let someone else take care of the parts of boat ownership that just aren’t as much fun! Your Memorial Day aboard our Carefree Boat Club sporty boats is destined to become a family tradition you will enjoy for years to come! If you haven’t signed up yet, what are you waiting for?
