5 Fun Ways To Enjoy a Pontoon in Cold Weather

5 Fun Ways To Enjoy a Pontoon in Cold Weather

The fun doesn’t have to stop just because the temperature drops! Cold weather can bring a whole new level of excitement to your pontoon adventures. Below are five fun ways to enjoy a pontoon in cold weather. So, bundle up and hit the water!

1. Hot Tub Party Day

Why should hot tubs be confined to your backyard? Imagine soaking in a warm, bubbling hot tub while cruising around a lake. Bring a small inflatable hot tub onboard your pontoon, fill it with water, and heat it with a portable water-safe heater. Invite some friends to join you, and voilà—you have a spa-like experience on the water. Just keep the towels close and remember to stay safe on the deck when it’s wet!

2. Cozy Movie Night

Transform your pontoon into a floating cinema by setting up a portable projector and screen. Bring some cozy blankets, popcorn, and your favorite movies to watch while enjoying the peaceful sounds of nature. With a projector, you can choose from an outdoor setup against the side of the boat or a more protected setup inside the boat’s central cabin area (if available). It’s a perfect way to enjoy a cold evening and still take in the beauty of the lake.

3. Gourmet Winter Picnic

One of the most fun ways to enjoy a pontoon in cold weather is to host a winter picnic. Cook up some delicious seasonal dishes at home, like hearty soups or stews, and keep them warm in insulated containers. Spread out a warm, fuzzy blanket on the boat’s deck, and enjoy your gourmet meal surrounded by gorgeous winter landscapes. You can even bring along a small portable grill for some hot sandwiches or barbecuing.

4. Fishing Expedition

Fishing can be just as enjoyable in cold weather, if not more so, as many fish species become more active. Grab your fishing gear, and head out on your pontoon to your favorite fishing spot. Heated seat cushions, a small portable heater, and a thermos full of hot cocoa or coffee will help keep you warm while you’re waiting for the fish to bite.

5. Guided Nature & Wildlife Tour

Nature might seem quiet during the cold months, but there’s still plenty of beauty and wildlife to be discovered on the lake’s shoreline. Inviting an experienced local nature guide can be an exciting way to explore the lake’s natural wonders. Expect to see breathtaking landscapes and possibly catch a glimpse of winter birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat.

These are just a few of the many exciting activities you can plan on your pontoon in the cold months. Consider booking ATX Party boats for a Lake Travis party boat rental with a captain if you’re looking for a perfect boat to host these events.

With some creativity, adventure, and preparation, your pontoon rental can be the perfect entertainment hub, regardless of the weather!
