Take advantage of the summer sun by spending time on the open seas. Whether you’re looking for excitement or relaxation, our relationship advice is to enjoy the water with your partner because it will unite you as a couple. For this weekend date idea, grab your favorite swimsuit and get ready to make waves.

Refreshing, Water Infused Date Ideas

Research your local (or not so local) area to find romantic dinner cruises. Find couples packages like massages and spa days. Look for specialty boat tours, a fireworks show, or a party cruise with a DJ and a full bar that both you and your partner can participate in. Enjoy night swims at the pool deck. Once you’ve embarked, the waves will whisk you away on a romantic date night.

Another adventurous date idea is to navigate your own excursion.  Visit a nearby lake and rent a canoe or kayak. Pack a picnic lunch that you and your partner prepared together. Even just going for a swim or dipping your toes in the water can provide you with refreshing weekend date ideas. Our dating advice is to plan ahead so you have something to look forward to as the week winds down.

If you want to explore deeper waters, try scuba diving or snorkeling. Find a venue that offers couples activities that you can try together. Look at the various sea creatures or swim with dolphins. If you don’t want to scuba or snorkel even just going to an aquarium with your partner would be fun. Dive into these date ideas, trust in your partner and most importantly have fun. Explore new territory with your significant other and make a splash!
