Driving Factor

Growing Popularity of Boat Tourism Worldwide to Boost the Market

Tourists are showing increasing interest in undertaking boat rides to visit far-off places in exotic locations. In response, several countries around the globe have developed unique spots and locations that can be accessed only through water bodies. For example, in New Zealand, the Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings, situated on Lake Taupo, can be visited while traversing the waters between Wellington and Auckland. In Australia, the famed Horizontal Falls, created periodically by tidal flows, can be experienced only by entering the natural rock gorges by boats. Up in the northern hemisphere, the US and Canada heavily promote tourism to the Alaskan coastline, which can be accessed only during the summer months and only via marine vessels. The soaring popularity of these destinations is expected to hugely benefit this market in the forthcoming years.
