Planning the Ultimate Christmas Party Boat Adventure

The holidays are here once again, and that means it’s time to plan parties! Whether you’re celebrating with friends, co-workers, your company, or family, Staying Afloat’s party boats are THE best venue to host your event.

Pick the Best Time for Your Christmas Party Boat Cruise

Whether to choose a daytime adventure or a sunset cruise is completely up to you. They both have their advantages. For instance, day cruises allow you to work on your tan while sunset cruises give you a beautiful view of the setting sun. You can also choose the best length of time to rent your party boat. We offer four hour, six hour, and eight hour cruises. 

Invite Your Favorite People

Figure out how many people will really make your party something special, and then determine how many boats you’ll need. Each of our vessels holds up to 12 guests. We currently have three boats, so you can host up to 35 other people.

Plan Food and Drinks

Staying Afloat provides bottled water, but everything else is up to you. You can hire a caterer or bring your own food and drinks – anything your heart desires! If you plan to bring alcoholic beverages, please designate a driver who will be sober when it’s time to drive. We care about your safety, and the holidays are no time to put that at risk.

Pack Your Water Bag

Here are some essentials to bring with you:

  • Floaties (we provide two per boat, but you’re free to bring one for everyone!)
  • Ginger or other natural motion sickness remedies (just in case – you don’t want motion sickness to spoil anyone’s fun!)
  • Sunscreen
  • Water guns / other fun items to enjoy in the water
  • Waterproof camera

After your Christmas cruise, don’t forget to make sure everyone has a safe ride home. Check on your guests to see that they arrived home safely and reminisce about the great time everyone had. To make your party truly memorable, make a shared photo album, and invite everyone to contribute the exciting pics and videos they captured.
