Living in New England, we are fortunate enough to have some of the most scenic coastlines and historic seaside cities. These cities have some of the best educational and family friendly boat cruises during the day that cater towards families and kids. Now imagine going on one of these great boats at night and slugging a few (by few, we mean 8-12) ‘Ronas or Tito’s and Soda’s with your best buddies and/or girlfriends… Sounds like a pretty epic night, right? Date Seat has found the best booze cruises out there for you party goers.
If you’re like most of my friends and can hardly walk on land after a night on the town, make sure you blow up those Finding Nemo floaties or at least bring a pool noodle (no, not to funnel a beer through the little hole in the middle) in the case of a man over board! Anchors away and drink up ya’ll!
Isles of Shoals Party Ships – Portsmouth, NH
We’re going to lead off with the Party Ships chartered by the Isles of Shoals Steamship Company as they are our favorite. Our favorite of these booze cruises, will take you up and down the Piscataqua River and Portsmouth Harbor all while giving you incredible sunset views on Downtown Portsmouth.
They offer many different genres of music depending on the night you and your crew decides to go on. They have a “Rockin’ with the River with The Shark” night, which features live bands and DJs from The Shark 105.3 playing your favorite classic rock hits. They also have a Reggae cruise and Party cruise, which plays Dance music and has themed nights. My favorite is the “Kickin’ Country Cruise” which is sponsored by Country 97.5. Make sure you check the calendar and find the cruise for you. Don’t forget your party pans and dancing shoes.
The Boatonian – Boston, MA
Ahoy Mateys – Of all the booze cruises offered in Boston, The Boatonian is your go-to if you’re looking to slug some beahs and get wild with some sultry babes.
This packed party boat departs every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from Rowe’s Wharf throughout the summer. Each night has its own music theme including, #ThrowbackThursdays, #HipHopFridays, and #CountrySaturdays.PS – On Friday nights, Jam’n 94.5’s PupDawg is there spinning the discs and the hottest tracks! It’s 21+ and a cash bar, so make sure you bring plenty of dollah bills! The boat will be rockin’ and pill poppin’ (KIDDING! Only Advil of course after you get home).
Casablanca Cruises – Portland, ME
Portland, ME, home to the best live music this region has to offer. Make sure you mark your calendar for one of the Concert Cruises. You will be able to see your favorite local bands playing covers and originals all summer long. Some Portland favorites (Kill Collins, Hello Newman, etc.) board these ships ready to play all afternoon and night long! Make sure you actually take the time in between drinks to actually take in the breathtaking views of the islands, lighthouses, forts Casco Bay has to offer. Tickets are always $20 per person so there is absolutely no reason to say no to this booze cruise! Come thirsty, party ready, and energized as you’ll be dancing all afternoon long!
