Pontoon Diving Boards and Food Ideas for Your Next Boat Outing

When it comes to packing for a day on the boat, what are you packing for food? You might find yourself perplexed about which types of foods to bring aboard.

Maybe you are a seasoned boater who has packed food for boating trips numerous times over the years, but you are getting tired of the same sandwiches and boring hot dogs. Perhaps you are just interested in some new ideas when planning for upcoming boating outings.

Whatever the reason, you need a fresh take on the kinds of food you take along on your boating trips. Lillipad Marine, home of the pontoon diving board, offers this list of foods you should pack for your next boating trip.

Breakfast Burritos

There is nothing that beats a hot breakfast to get your blood pumping in the morning. Somehow, a bowl of cold cereal isn’t everyone’s idea of a wholesome and refreshing breakfast. And bacon and eggs are fine, but that can get quite tedious as well.

Breakfast burritos are here to save the day. Breakfast burritos offer a hot and tasty breakfast and they are quite easy to make as well.

Meats and Cheese

You can serve bologna or ham sandwiches for lunch, but we are betting the guests on your boat would prefer a meat and cheese tray. Sliced meat and cheeses make a great snack or lunch when you are on a boat because they are easy to prepare, easy to eat and easy to share.

Fruit Salad

Fruit makes an excellent and satisfying snack. You can always grab a banana or apple when you are feeling peckish, but many people would rather enjoy a variety of fruits cut and peeled and ready to eat in a fruit salad.

Veggie Wraps

It makes perfect sense that if you are serving breakfast burritos in the morning that you should be serving veggie wraps for lunch or dinner. You can’t go wrong combining vegetables in a tortilla wrap with a tasty sauce.

Deviled Delights

Chopped foods that have been blended with a crunchy or creamy element is always a hit. The obvious choice here is deviled eggs, but there are plenty of deviled dishes from which to choose. Deviled crab is our choice.

Fried Chicken

No, this won’t win any awards for the healthiest choice of boat foods, but it is still a popular and tasty dish. We recommend you fry the chicken up before the boat trip and serve it cold. There is nothing quite as satisfying as boring into cold fried chicken.


You can’t forget about dessert. Brownies are a wonderful choice not only because they are easy to make and tastes exceptionally good, but they are also very versatile as well. You can serve them with ice cream to make a decadent sundae.

Grilled Cheese

Sometimes, the simplest foods are the tastiest. This is especially true when it comes to grilled cheese sandwiches. They are easy to make, take just a few ingredients and go amazingly well with a bowl of tomato soup.

All you need for the perfect boat outing is the right foods and a boat diving board. Order yours from Lillipad Marine.
