What food should I bring on a boat?
When boating, finding the right food to pack and bring with you can be quite tricky. Like, is the food easy to transport or simple enough to make onboard? Does it need refrigeration? Will it be a complete disaster if the water turns rocky and your food spills? NO need to worry because here are some food ideas that are perfect to bring along on your boating trips.
- Frozen fruits such as grapes or berries
- Sliced fruits and veggies
- Pasta salad
- Kebabs (you can make them ahead and then grill them on the boat)
- Trail Mix
- Energy bars
- Popcorn or chips
- Sandwiches or burgers
- Hummus and crackers
If you’re skillful at fishing or you just feel lucky you can catch your fish or even shellfish and cook/grill it onboard. But if you want to just relax and enjoy your sailing holiday, you can prepare your meals and snacks ahead of time.
Also, remember to keep hot and cold foods apart to avoid cross-contamination. If your boat doesn’t come with a fridge make sure you don’t forget your coolers for boating. Use food storage containers or ziplock bags when storing your food.
