Many look forward to relaxing and playing out on the water.

Grand Valley Marine, with locations in Grandville and Grand Haven, says to keep you and those around you safe on the water when boating.

Here’s a boating tip to help you stay safe out there: Make sure to wear a life jacket.

Boaters enjoy the feel of sun and spray. So it’s tempting to boat without wearing a life jacket — especially on nice days.

The reality is life jackets are available in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. Many are thin and flexible. Some are built right into fishing vests or hunter coats. Others are inflatable and are as compact as a scarf or fanny pack until they hit water, when they automatically fill with air.

There’s no excuse not to wear a life jacket on the water!

Remember, think, act and stay safe when on the water.
