Once your booking is confirmed, you can easily share booking details, including the marina, dock, or boat location, with your crew.

2) Captained boats

Even if you have boating experience, New Year’s isn’t the best time to get behind the helm, especially if champagne is in the mix. You want to hangout, enjoy your people, and party! Luckily, you have the option of booking a boat and captain. If you haven’t figured out where to anchor the boat, just ask the captain! All Boatsetter captains are local guides.

3) It’s the economic choice

Why wouldn’t you want to spend an agreeable amount for an incredible experience? Renting a boat has become the economic choice for those trying to get on the water for a day of fun. The amazing part is that the cost of the boat rental (and captain) is easily dividable among a group of friends. Honestly, renting a boat on New Year’s is the economic choice, you’d probably spend more bar hopping (and potentially have less fun).
