About the Hot Tub Boat Tour
Our one-of-a kind hot tub boat was built to our specifications. It carries two, eight-person commercial grade hot tubs, and is bookable by the seat, by the tub (up to ten people) or by the boat (up to 20 people). The boat has amenities including a large bathroom and separate changing room. There are lockers for guests’ belongings and spa-side coolers for beer and wine. In addition to the captain, a deckhand is on board to assist guests. Our 40’ Coast Guard certified vessel is operated by a USCG licensed Master Captain.
Departing from the West Side of Manhattan, tours are 90 minutes in length. Traveling down the Hudson River, guests will see breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline as they head towards Liberty Island. The boat circles the Statue of Liberty before making its way back up the Hudson to home. The tubs are professionally maintained, chlorinated spas. Health standards consistent with CDC guidelines are maintained at all times. Towel and robe rentals are available. Ice is provided free of charge.

Will there be a place to store belongings?
Yes. We provide storage on the boat. This is a free and secure space to lock up your belongings. You DO NOT need to provide your own lock.
Does the tour run in the rain?
Yes. You’re already wet so what’s the difference? :). The boat does have canvas covers to protect from heavy rain and is comfortable and enjoyable regardless of precipitation
What is the best time of day to go on a hot tub boat tour?
Of course the answer is, anytime! However, here is our best attempt to describe how to choose the time of day that is best for you:
Daytime – This is the height of the “action”!
Sunset – Anytime in NY Harbor is beautiful, but sunset takes the cake! The water generally starts to calm, boat traffic diminishes and the sun starts going down on yet another day in the greatest City in the world. Breathtaking!
Night – Seeing the Skyline all lit up is simply amazing!
How many people can ride on the boat?
We have 2 hot tubs, each seating 8 people comfortably. If you book a semi private outing your group will have its own tub. In this case, you can invite up to 10 people. This is because we have additional deck seating allowing people to rotate in the tub. When booking the entire boat, there is a 20 passenger max.
What do I need to wear?
Bathing suits are the way to go.
What is the minimum age to come on a tour?
You must be 13 or older to ride along with your parent or legal guardian. Nobody under 13 will be permitted to ride.
Am I required to sign a waiver?
Yes. It is a requirement that all individuals participating sign a waiver. A waiver will be emailed to each participant for electronic signature prior to your tour.
Can I bring my cell phone on the tour?
Yes, cell phones and gopros are permitted.
Are Sea the City gift certificates available?
Yes, Sea the City does offer certificates and they make a great gift people will not forget!
What about tipping?
Many of our guests have asked for guidance on gratuities. Tipping is always optional. Our experience is that most guests tip about $20 per passenger. If you would like to tip that can be done in cash, via Venmo or by asking to add it to your credit card on file. 100% of the gratuity goes to your guides, regardless of the method of payment you use.
How long is the experience?
The tour experience is 90 minutes. Guests must arrive at least 15 minutes before departure to check in.
Is the water clean?
Absolutely! The hot tubs are professionally maintained, commercial grade, chlorinated spas.
Do you have changing facilities?
Yes, we do have changing facilities. We have nice changing rooms but no showers, other than an outdoor area to rinse off.
Can I drink alcohol?
Passengers (21+) are permitted to consume alcohol (beer or wine only) on board. We will not allow anyone on board who is deemed to be drunk. We just want you to stay safe!
I am pregnant
Congrats! We are sorry the Hot Tub Boat is not suitable for anyone who is pregnant.
Unfortunately if you are late for your session we cannot offer a refund. If it is a private charter, we can depart when you arrive, returning at the time originally scheduled. However, semi-private or by-the-seat bookings do not allow us to hold the boat for you since other customers experience would be effected.
Can I change my booking date?
We are happy to change your booking date for free with at least 48 hours notice.
The boat is operated by a United States Coast Guard Master Captain, assisted by a deckhand.
