You may have wanted to see New York from the water, but now you can do it while relaxing in the water. Launched by the New York jet ski company Sea The City, these 40’ long boats hold two hot tubs each.
The hot tub boats were custom designed and have now been cruising around its waterways for a year. The tour lasts for 90 minutes and you can marvel at the skyline of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty as you sail the Hudson River.
You can book just one hot tub or the whole boat for a private party. If you want to add to your experience with a little adult beverage you are welcome to, but it is BYOB. Robes and towels are available, but you can bring your own to save a few bucks. There is a nice large bathroom and separate change room onboard.
If you worry about the cleanliness of the hot tub don’t worry, they meet CDC guidelines and these chlorinated spas are professionally maintained. The boat is also kept to a high standard, with a USCG certified master captain and deckhand to help guests.
The tours run-up to New Years Day so you can even enjoy a wonderful warm soak on a crisp NYC winter’s day. Although we admit this is not the cheapest way to see The Big Apple, it might just be one of the coolest and most relaxing ways to do it.
