Interpretation of Boats in Dreams

Symbolism of Different Types of Boats

A ferry or piloted boat holds all the symbolism of the journey across the river Styx after death. Today it signifies the giving up of selfish desires.

A small rowing boat would suggest an expedition of emotional discovery but one often undertaken alone.

A yacht might suggest a similar journey done with style, whereas a large ship would suggest creating new horizons but in the company of others.

Connection with Water

Because of their connections with water, boats may symbolize (some aspect of) the feminine, either with a plainly sexual reference or with reference to the unconscious.

Missing the Boat

If we dream of missing a boat it shows we have not paid enough attention to detail to a project in our waking lives.

Symbolism of Setting Sail

Setting sail is an exhilarating experience. The ocean is vast and can take you anywhere. Dreaming you’re at sea can mean you feel slightly lost in real life.

If you’re heading for a specific location then you’re primed and ready to seize the right opportunity.

Connection to the Subconscious

Boats in our dreams ride on the waves and the surface of the subconscious, so they are connected to the emotional and creative currents of life.

Ocean Liner Symbolism

An ocean liner, carrying a large cargo of people and often goods, may or may not make it to port in our dreams. If it does, it would suggest that you will reap the riches you deserve.
