Just like any vacation to a new destination, it can take a little time to get used to your new on-the-water home, and your new accommodations.
And while a houseboat can provide one of the most comfortable and convenient experiences for exploring Shasta Lake to the fullest, new visitors of all ages may need a little time to get used to their distinctive but beautiful surroundings.
So, make sure you sleep and relax in perfect comfort from day one by adhering to these tips that will make it easy to rest soundly.
After all, you’ll need all that energy to enjoy the exceptional fishing, swimming, exploring, hiking, and sightseeing that Shasta Lake has to offer. And getting a vacation full of good rest is key to embark on all the adventures that Shasta Lake has to offer!
Bring Comforts of Home
Extra blankets, pillows, and other favorite items from home can go a long way in ensuring you’re able to get used to your new accommodations as quickly as possible.
This is especially true for the youngest members of your crew, who may need a little time to feel at ease in a new bed. For your younger passengers, bring along ample stuffed animals and books, so their new houseboat will feel like home in no time at all.
Keep Your Sleep Schedule Regulated
It’s always tempting to stay up late and sleep in during your vacation, but for the best rest possible, it’s helpful to keep your sleep schedule similar to what it is in your everyday routine.
Drastically shifting your sleep schedule by several hours can be akin to having jet lag, so try to wake up and go to bed at a fairly regular timeframe every night to ensure you are catching plenty of Zzzzs.
Leave the Dramamine and Sleep Aids at Home
Many newcomers to Shasta Lake worry that they might get seasick, but this is rarely – if ever – a concern! Shasta Lake is calm and flat throughout, so you’ll likely never be bothered by excessive motion in the water.
As such, leave the sleep aids and Dramamine at home, to ensure you can wake up feeling rested and not groggy, and can fully enjoy your days from start to finish.
Choose Your Accommodations Wisely
One of the best aspects of our Bridge Bay houseboats is that there is ample room for everyone in the crew, so don’t be afraid to reserve a larger vessel with ample spots to rest!
Our elite vessels, like the Grand Sierra Ex, have separate bedrooms and sleeping areas to ensure you can enjoy plenty of privacy, so pick a favorite houseboat that is perfectly comfortable and spacious enough for your crew.
