Forget about dreaming about soaking up the sunshine on a yacht. You can now rent hot tub boats near Vancouver, and relax on the water with five of your friends. Rental companies in Victoria and Seattle make this a fun road trip idea for you to start planning your summer bucket list.
Just picture it, you can put on your bathing suit and float along the coastline inside a pool of steamy hot water. It sure sounds heavenly, doesn't it?
There are two companies nearby that offer this unique experience. Which means you can pick between the Gorge Waterway on Vancouver Island or Lake Union near Seattle.
Both offer private rentals for up to six people. Inside these vehicles, you'll find dry bags to protect your valuables, and Bluetooth speakers so you can blast your party playlist.
Canada's first hot tub boat merchant is Hot Tub Boat Victoria. They offer a one and half hour rental for $65.00 per person.
There is a minimum of two people required to book the boat. It is also possible to enhance the experience by paying $10.00 to have Epsom salt added to the water to help your aching muscles.
Soon enough, you won't need to make the three-hour drive and ferry ride to their departure spot in Victoria.
The company is aiming to expand to Vancouver and Kelowna, but at this time there is no confirm opening dates.
The other option is Seattle's Hot Tub Boat, about a three-hour drive from Vancouver. They offer a two hour rental for $350, and you can extra time for $100 each additional hour.
Within this floating hot tub, you'll get to enjoy stunning views of Seattle's skyline, including the iconic Space Needle.
It is time to plan your weekend road trip with your friends to experience this first hand. Reservations for either experience can be made online, so claim a spot now.
