Look, chances are if you’re reading this, you’re not really a millionaire. That’s cool, neither am I. However, if you want to pretend like you are, at least for a few hours on a hot summer afternoon, why not consider getting together a group of friends to rent a hot tub boat? Yes, it’s really a thing and if there are enough of you, it’s pretty inexpensive too!
- Wait, a hot tub boat? Really? Yes, really. In essence, they’re hot tubs, only they’re floating in a boat-shaped instrument that does actually move, albeit slowly. They only go about 5 miles per hour and you’ll need a driver’s license to rent one, but they will let you cruise around Lake Union in Seattle, where the Hot Tub Boats company is based.
- It has everything you need for a great day out. In addition to providing dry storage for all your drinks and snacks (a must-have in every occasion, obviously), there’s also a built-in Bluetooth speaker system so you can hook up your own tunes on the water. Yes, please!
- They’re taking safety very seriously during coronavirus. On their website, the company announced that they have implemented new safety measures including changing the water between guests, cleaning the boat with eco-friendly soaps and chlorine, and reducing rental times so that guests don’t overlap. Not only that, but your group is limited to six people, all of whom will have to sign a waiver saying that they’re not currently ill and have not been around anyone who has been.
- It’s not cheap but with enough friends, it’s not expensive either. Renting one of these bad boys will run you $350 for two hours. However, if you divide that by six friends (assuming you have that many – I’m sad that way, haha!), that’s only $60 per person, which is totally reasonable!
