Pro Athletes Who Love Life on the Water
Stars – they’re just like us. Really! Check out these professional athletes who love life on the water. Learn how they got started, what drew them to the water, some of their favourite boating hotspots and what’s on their on-the-water playlist.
There’s just something about the boating lifestyle that reeled us all in. The best part – you don’t have to be a professional athlete to get out on the water since there’s a boat and boating activity for every budget.
Insider Tip: The athletes below already know this, but life is better with a boat.
When not on the mound, professional baseball’s Roy Halladay, an All-Star pitcher and Cy Young Award winner, can be found relaxing on his boat in Florida fishing, cruising and enjoying the boating lifestyle.
One of the best anglers in professional fishing, Kevin VanDam spends his down time living it up on the water. He says there’s nothing better than boating with his family and he’s been doing just that since he was a kid growing up in Michigan.
A star on and off the football field, Jason Taylor has also logged his fair share of hours on the water. After 15 seasons of pro football and a turn on Dancing with the Stars, he enjoys spending his free time living the boating life with his wife and three children.
