Thanks to decades of innovation, the application of greater technologies and increased comfort, people are using their personal watercraft in ways wholly removed from those from 30 years ago. The modern conveyances of today’s Sea-Doos, for example, have paved the way for budding long-distance explorers to take to the water in all-new ways. It’s truly how BRP loves to see their latest runabouts used and frankly, a super fun way to see the world around you.
Recently, we discovered Mark Forrest’s YouTube channel, ForrestSound Adventure and Exploration where he boards his ’19 Sea-Doo GTX 155 and embarks on monthly adventures, making sure to capture all of the scenery, wildlife and unusual sights during his journeys. We particularly enjoyed last Fall’s two-part “Exploring the Trent Severn Waterway” series (which we’ve shared below), as Mark and company go on an overnight camping trip up and back down the Trent Severn Waterway in Ontario, Canada.
Passing through a series of locks (including a very cool “lift lock” elevator), beneath a variety of bridges, and through miles of unspoiled nature (as well as spotting a beaver dam and a swimming squirrel); Mark also captures one unlucky boater nearly capsizing his boat after tying to the wrong docklines in one lock. It’s all part of the experience, and Mark’s videos do it perfectly, paired with perfectly-selected relaxing music and just the right amount of commentary.
