What You Need to Know Before You Rent a Party Boat


There is nothing quite like the wind in your hair as you set out on a body of water, a pastime in which more than 100 million Americans partake each year. You can level up your good time on the water when you rent a party boat for your next occasion.

Renting a party boat means you and your guests can take in the scenery while jamming to music and letting the good times roll. Read on to find out what you need to consider before renting a party boat so you can have the best time possible.


Decide on a Party Theme

A party boat is the perfect way to celebrate almost any occasion. Birthday parties, bachelorette parties, and showers are all perfect events to take onto the water.

Lean into the nautical theme to stay in line with your water event. If you want more color in your party, try a fiesta or pirate theme. You can make anything work on a party boat!

Choose Your Boat

Once you’ve figured out your theme, you’ll choose a boat to rent that meets your party needs. A pontoon boat is the best fit for a slower-paced party, but a tour boat is good if you’re hoping to take in the scenery as you party on the water.

Planning a Boat Party Tips

Although planning a party on a boat is a blast, there are some basic rules to keep in mind. Sticking to these will ensure you and your guests have nothing but a great time.

Inviting Too Many People

It may sound like a fun idea to invite everyone you know to your party boat, but in this case, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Overloading your boat can be a safety issue. Make sure to adhere to the boat capacity guidelines when making your guest list.

Know the Signs of Seasickness

Having guests get seasick can turn your adventure from a great time to a poor one. The first sign of seasickness is getting queasy or dizzy.

If anyone starts to feel this way, take action as soon as you can. Make sure that anyone feeling this way drinks lots of water and looks at the horizon. Taking over-the-counter medicine for seasickness or wearing pressure point bands can also help keep these symptoms from getting worse.

Check the Weather

Before you go, make sure to check the weather conditions. Nothing would dampen your party, both literally and figuratively, more than getting stuck in a thunderstorm or high winds. If the weather looks unfavorable, reschedule your trip for a later day.

Rent a Party Boat for a Day Filled With Fun

If you want to plan an event that your guests won’t forget, a party on the water is the way to go. When you rent a party boat for your celebration, your guests will love the scenery, the open air, and the uniqueness of the celebration.
