You already have an informative website with all the pertinent details, but can potential guests take a virtual tour of your facility?

If not, then you should take a cue from residential pool builders who are leveraging the latest in photographic tech to showcase their projects online.

Viewers can virtually look around unobstructed as the boat motors along. This is done by either dragging the cursor on the screen in the direction you want to look or — even cooler — by tilting your mobile device left or right.
