Boaters can now connect through Facebook pages and groups designed to share a love of boating

boating facebook pagesWith social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn there are even more ways to connect and communicate with other boaters. Boaters love to become friends (or at least associate) with other boaters.

When you “become a fan” or “join a group” within Facebook pages you can interact with thousands of other boaters to share ideas and your passion for boating.

Here are some of the top Facebook boating pages and groups (in no particular order) that I have recently found.

i love boating facebookI Love Boating
Powered by the mega online boat product catalog, iboats.com, this fan page is by far the largest and most active boating page on Facebook. By tapping into their existing membership base on iboats.com the Facebook page was able to quickly grow to over 30,000 enthusiastic fans that love boating. Look for a lot of “I love boating” type of fan comments along with some pretty creative boating cartoon posts.

every type of boater – power or sailboat.

A non-affiliated page for sailing fans, the only thing noted in the info section of this page is “One of the Oldest Forms of Transportation Known to Man”. My good friend who is an avid sailing fan recently joined this fan page that has nearly 45,000 other fans passionate about sailing.
