About the Hot Tub Boat Tour
Hot Tub on a Boat
Our one-of-a kind hot tub boat was built to our specifications. It carries two, ten-person commercial grade hot tubs, and is bookable by the tub (up to ten people) or by the boat (up to 20 people). The boat’s amenities include a large bathroom and separate changing room. Coolers are provided for your beer and wine. In addition to the captain, deckhands are on board to assist guests. Our 40’ Coast Guard certified vessel is operated by a USCG licensed Master Captain.
NYC Private Boat Cruise Experience
Departing just 10 min from Manhattan, our water tour around Manhattan is 90 minutes in length. During boat rides up 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 rentals are available. Coolers, Ice and Cups are provided free of charge.
Party Boat Rides Near NYC
- Although our boat is not a party boat per se, we do provide a luxurious space for a wide variety of celebrations, gatherings, and parties. For instance, our yacht can be used to celebrate someone’s:
- retirement party
- corporate event, and much more!
One truly exciting aspect of our party boat rides is the fact that we have hot tubs included on board. This one-of-a-kind experience is the only hot tub boat ride in the entire NYC area! We’ll take you on a 90-minute cruise and allow you to completely relax by soaking in the hot tub.
Jersey City Boat Ride
Our boat ride departs from Liberty Landing Marina, located in Jersey City, NJ. We’ll take you and your friends on a stunning ride from Jersey City to Liberty Island, which will allow you breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty. It doesn’t matter what type of hot tub ride you book because we know you’ll experience the height of luxury either way.
Taking a Jersey City boat ride into New York City also makes it easier to find parking and arrive on time. Unfortunately, riders who show up late may not be able to join the hot tub cruise boat. Therefore, our riders are pleased that we’ve chosen Jersey City as our launch point.
There are two different options available to you. Either book the boat by the tub, which allows you to have as many as 10 people with you, or book the entire boat, which allows up to 20 people. Alternatively, you may book for only a person or two, but there will most likely be other people sharing the hot tub.
During your 90-minute boat ride, you’ll be able to see the Statue of Liberty, along with the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River. Relax and enjoy with the knowledge that our hot tubs are chlorinated and professionally maintained. They meet or exceed all CDC guidelines.
As you come onboard, we have deckhands available to assist you. We include cups, ice, and coolers free of charge! We also offer towel rentals for a nominal fee. Additionally, there are separate changing rooms and a bathroom onboard. All you need to do is bring your own drinks and you’ll be ready to soak in luxury as we cruise around NYC.
You can rent out the entire tub for a special date night or join others for a day of fun! Our hot tub boat is also ideal for throwing a bachelor or bachelorette party. No matter what reason you want to celebrate, our 40-foot boat provides the perfect ambiance and a one-of-a-kind ride!

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 the 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 10 people comfortably. If you book a semi private outing, your group will have its own tub with a max size capacity of 10. When booking the entire boat, there is a 20 passenger max.

Bathing suits are the way to go.

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, you can do so in cash, via Venmo or by requesting your tip be added to your credit card on file. One hundred percent of the gratuity goes to your guides, regardless of the method of payment you use.

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 bookings do not allow us to hold the boat for you since other customers’ experience would be affected.
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(s).
