Tips for First-Timers on a Tiki Boat

Tips for First-Timers on a Tiki Boat

Embarking on your first tiki boat adventure with Tiki Boat Long Island promises an unforgettable journey along the picturesque shores of Long Island. Whether you’re celebrating with friends, enjoying a family outing, or seeking a unique date idea, a tiki boat experience offers a delightful blend of leisure and scenic beauty. Here are some essential tips to ensure your maiden voyage is smooth sailing.

1. Dress Appropriately

The key to comfort on the water is dressing in layers. Even on warm days, the sea breeze can be cool, especially as the sun sets. Opt for breathable, lightweight clothing and bring along a jacket. Footwear should be boat-friendly; rubber-soled shoes are ideal to prevent slips on the deck.

2. Pack Smart

While we provide the essentials, including safety gear and basic amenities, it’s wise to pack a small bag with personal items. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat are a must to protect against the sun. If you plan to swim, don’t forget your swimsuit and a towel. Also, consider bringing a waterproof camera or a phone with a waterproof case to capture memories without worry.

3. Arrive Early

To make the most of your tiki boat experience, arrive at least 15 minutes before departure. This gives you plenty of time to get acquainted with the boat, meet your captain, and settle in without rushing. Early arrival also means you get the first pick of seats!

4. Listen to the Safety Briefing

Safety is paramount on any boat tour. Pay close attention to the captain’s safety briefing. Understanding where the life jackets are stored and what to do in an emergency will help you feel more secure throughout the journey.

5. Stay Hydrated

Spending time in the sun and the salty sea air can lead to dehydration. We offer a variety of refreshments on board, but it’s a good idea to drink water throughout your trip to stay hydrated and comfortable.

6. Embrace the Experience

A tiki boat tour is all about enjoying the relaxed, festive atmosphere. Participate in onboard activities, enjoy the music, and soak up the beautiful views. Don’t hesitate to ask the crew about landmarks or wildlife you might encounter—they love sharing their local knowledge!

7. Respect the Environment

We are committed to protecting the marine environment. Please help us by disposing of trash properly and respecting wildlife regulations during your visit.
