Everybody loves a good party out on the water; having a blast with your friends on a party boat is great for celebrating any occasion. However, there are a few things to know before renting a party boat to ensure your big bash goes smoothly.
Choose the Right Size
You’ll want to make sure everyone’s comfortable and has space to unwind and enjoy the party. Be sure to consider the number of guests you plan to invite before making a decision on vessel size. You can rent a smaller pontoon for a more intimate get-together, but you should consider a party barge for a larger gathering. Fortunately, ATX Party Boats has ships in all sizes for you to browse.
Prepare a Checklist
Your party boat rental cost typically covers the boat, fuel, and a captain to take you on the water. For all the other party necessities, you’re on your own. Make sure you compile a thorough list of everything you need, including towels, sunblock, snacks, entertainment, and other essentials. And remember, you may be floating on water, but dehydration is one of the most significant health risks on a ship. Ensure you have enough water for everybody to stay healthy and have fun.
Make Plans Early and Stick to Them
Something important to know before renting a party boat is that party boats are a booming business. If you wait until the last minute to make your reservation, the ship you want for your party may not be available. We recommend choosing a date and making your reservations well ahead of time.
On the night of your big party, it’s best to arrive at least 20 minutes before your cast-off time. Have everything ready to go with payment and paperwork, and give everybody time to arrive—the last thing you want is someone getting left on the shore.
