Remember to check the climate condition days prior to your planned trip. Ask the local weather bureau or weather station about this as well as the temperature. Don't decide to sail if it's going to be very windy or when there'll be strong rain showers. Otherwise, not only will you be unable to enjoy the view, you will also put your life as well as the other passengers at risk.
Have life jackets on hand for all of the passengers. Make sure that everyone wears a well-fitting one prior to departure so it is important to educate them on how to correctly use it. Keep sufficient floatation devices on hand which should be easily accessible in case of emergency situations and especially for persons who don't know a thing or two about swimming.
Do a complete inspection of the boat in all aspects. This should be easy to do if you follow a regular maintenance check and cleaning program which entails engaging the services of a professional marine engineering services provider. Make sure that everything works well including the piping system for the prevention of leakages which could otherwise bring forth dangerous accidents. See to it that you only make use of high quality pipe couplings from reputable sources and that they're well joined and fitted at all times. Note that even just a tiny gap or misalignment could already lead to unnecessary cracks and seepages especially during high water pressures.
Stay away from consuming alcohol as this will just increase your likelihood of getting into an accident. Have another person present who is knowledgeable about boat operations and giving first aid medical attention to those who need it. Inform a close friend or a family member about your plans and schedules for the whole duration of your boating adventure and be in contact with that person as much as you can.
