Party Boats Rental Guide

Miami is known around the world for its nightlife and party culture. Not only does it offer amazing on-land venues, but the festivities do not stop there—in fact, some of the best celebrations take place aboard boats off Miami's coast. Although planning an event on a boat appears to be a simple experience that you may want to start planning right away, there are a few things we recommend considering before starting. Tagvenue is here to assist you through this exciting process and keep the booking process simple, secure and safe. Check out our useful guide to pulling off the best boat party in Miami:

  • Book your venue ahead of time because it may actually sail away without you. Needless to say, there is a greater demand for party boat venues than ever before. Everyone's attention is turning to this exciting type of event space, and for a good reason. Party boats have a lot to offer. With that in mind, you should start looking for a venue as soon as possible to ensure you have the best options. Everything else can be arranged in several ways, but you may have to settle for a less desirable option if your dream venue is unavailable.  
  • Even though Miami is recognized for having fantastic weather almost all year long, you should keep the weather in mind. Even Miami has rainy days, and quite a few tropical storms, and being on a boat in rough seas may not be the best idea. If possible, consider scheduling your event around April or November when the weather is nice and the waters are calm. If not, check the weather forecast ahead of time and inform your guests about what attire to bring. Better be prepared, than sorry!
  • Make sure you take your time planning. It’s very important to get all the small details right when organizing an event on a boat. Whether your event has ten or hundreds of guests, checklists and double-checking will be your best tools. You can create a checklist for almost every aspect of your event, if you wish to do so. That way you will be able to keep track of everything that is going on prior and during your party. Once your party sets sail there's no going back after the party starts so you need to have everything you need for the party already on board. 
  • You can choose a fun theme or take your party to the next level by adding interesting decorations. If your event is held during the day, you already have the ideal backdrop for great photos. If you're arranging an evening celebration, enjoy the beautiful Miami skyline, and add fairy lights or electric candles to help create a cozy atmosphere for you and your guests.
  • Before your party begins, make sure there is enough food and beverages on board. The last thing you want is to be on a boat in the sea with no water or snacks on board. For larger events with a big guest list, check in with your venue manager regarding catering options. If you intend on creating menus for your event, keep your guests' dietary requirements in mind.
  • To keep the occasion fun, try to incorporate safe onboard entertainment options. For smaller gatherings, a portable karaoke machine and board games may be appropriate. You can also hire a band or a DJ for larger gatherings and dance the night away under the Miami skyline.
  • If you're planning a boat day party that includes fun water activities like diving, snorkeling, or any other type of water fun, be sure you and your guests have the proper equipment and apparel. When the sun goes down, it's always a good idea to turn to onboard entertainment. After all, safety comes first.
  • Ensure that all of your guests are comfortable and that you check on them frequently. Make sure your venue has proper safety equipment in case something unexpected happens. 
  • It is always preferable to have at least one person on board who can provide medical help. Check with the charter company to see if there is qualified personnel on board. It may be a hassle, but you never know when it will be needed.
  • Before the party, check with your venue manager regarding permits, alcohol licenses, and any other rules and regulations you should be aware of.

Now that you understand how to plan a boat party, it's time to find a venue where you can bring your vision to life. When choosing any kind of venue in general, you must always set a budget and decide on how big your party will be ahead of time. Because the available space and resources are limited on party boats, this general guideline is important. You must know how many people will be attending your event, in order to choose a suitable boat and order enough food and refreshments.
