How to Survive Junk Boat Parties

Updated: Sep 1, 2018

The Junk Boat Parties are one of our favourite events to host, we take it very seriously! From floating flamingos to excessive amounts of alcohol and extreme drinking games… Let’s just say we know how to throw a killer Junk Boat Party…

So here’s a few handy tips on how to survive (based on previous experience) and have the best boat trip possible:

  • Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen! As high SPF as you can find and make sure to reapply. We don’t need any lobsters jumping on and off the boat.

  • Ease yourself into the drinks slowly! Remember it’s a 7+ hour day and if you get drunk right off the bat then you will struggle to make it through the day.

  • If you want to join a banana boat ride or the wake-boarding, you need to get in asap. It’s first come first serve and if you’re not paying attention then you may need to wait for the boat to return for next round. It’s best to let one of the staff know you’re interested so we can keep an eye on you.

  • Bring a towel and some extra clothing. It can get a little chilly after all the swimming combined with the breeze on the boat ride home, so drying off and wearing fresh clothes can be a life-saver.

  • If you don’t know how to swim, not to worry! We have life jackets, floating noodles and other awesome floating toys (including a freaking bad-ass unicorn) to keep your head above water! There are a lot of people at our events who can’t swim, so don’t be shy and let us know so we can get you a floating device.

  • If you need anything, just ask! If you run out of sunscreen, we will have some spare, otherwise there are over 30 other people on the boat to ask! Easy pickings. If you want drinking games, I promise you we have aplenty. If you want more drinks or snacks, we just may have some hiding. Basically, if you want it… we probably can get it from somewhere!
