You Can Cruise Around Seattle in a Hot Tub Boat

Hot Tub Boats is the hottest thing to do in Seattle.

What’s better than a scenic ride on a boat? A scenic ride on a boat with a hot tub.

Finding a new and unique summer activity can be difficult — unless you’re in the Seattle area, that is. A company based in Washington's biggest city makes boats equipped with hot tubs that people can rent and navigate around Lake Union.

The aptly-named Hot Tub Boats fit up to six people, making the rentals ideal for families or groups of friends who are traveling together. Each boat has an electric motor that allows the vessel to go up to five miles per hour, and all you need is a valid driver’s license to operate it. The boats also have diesel heaters, so the water in the hot tubs is always 104 degrees Fahrenheit whether rain, snow, or shine (which is good, because it does tend to rain a lot in Seattle).

Boat renters can bring along food, drink, phones, towels, or whatever small items they would like to have on their voyage (Bluetooth speakers are included), as each boat has dry storage. Alcohol, however, is not permitted if you are renting. Customers can also change into swimsuits and store any items they want to keep safe at the rental facility.

While some people get a little nervous about hot tubs (and their cleanliness) even in the best of times, the company cleans, sanitizes, and changes out the hot tub water on the boats after every usage.

Each boat is available for $400 per party for a two-hour excursion, and you can select romantic add-ons like rose petals or epsom soaks for an additional fee. You can also contact the company directly to purchase a hot tub boat for your very own. Reservations can be made up to one year in advance (though all renters should note the company’s cancellation policies).
