Boat Excursions Fun Facts

Did you know a boat can be built out of concrete and it will still float? As long as a boat is lighter than the water it displaces, it will stay above water.

What makes a boat move through the water? Throughout history, boats have been powered by wind, propellers, oars, motors, paddles, and ocean and river currents. Sailboats, which have been around for 5,000 years, can reach speeds of over 47 knots (about 54 mph) from wind power alone!

The next time you take your campers on a boat, ask the crew how the boat’s construction helps it transport people and things across bodies of water, and what power sources it uses.
