Planning The Romantic Boat Trip

Planning the perfect day is part of the excitement and will be worth the smile it brings your partner's face. Whether it's a first date, your wedding anniversary, someone you crush on or someone you want to propose to, having a well thought out plan it's important.

Luckily for you, this doesn't take much thought on your part. Here's a pro tip. Before booking the boat, message the owner first to see will they prep the boat in a romantic setting.

Maybe ask for champagne or ask the owner to help with executing the best proposal or simply ask them to help with whatever floats you and your partners boat (pun intended)

If it's a valentines day boat rental, then boat owners may already be prepared for a romantic boat trip but it's still wise to message them first to be sure.

Either way, have a great time on your romantic boat ride and hopefully it pleases you and your date. If this is your first date, well you can guarantee it'll be a memorable one!

Some things to note is to always ask the owner of the boat what's included. Some owners will prearrange for a picnic to be setup, champagne, ice and snacks or a full dinner menu while others won't.

What should I bring to my romantic boat date ?

Wrapping things up, there are some other useful things worth mentioning that you should keep in mind. If you are someone on a budget, there are certain times of the year when renting a boat is more expensive.

Valentines day, July 4th (if in USA), and peak summer months of July & August are generally more expensive than other times of the year.

So if you want to have a romantic date onboard a boat and are on a budget, you should try avoid those times of year.
