Perhaps something truly unique that your date will be able to remember for the rest of their life? 

The answer is simple: Take your beloved on a NYC hot tub cruise

Imagine the look of joy in their eyes when the two of you board your private cruise around the city. You’ll get to see the best sites while the two of you relax in ultimate luxury. Whether you want to romance them early in your relationship or are planning anniversary date ideas in NYC, you can’t go wrong with Sea the City!

  • Governor’s Island 
  • The World Trade Center/Freedom Tower 
  • Lady Liberty (Statue of Liberty)

Taking your special person to any of the above buildings would make a good date, but you can knock it out of the park by combining these sites with the pleasure of soaking in a hot tub!

You’ve most likely been in a hot tub before, but have you ever ridden in a hot tub cruise? The odds are high that you haven’t, which makes this one of the very best New York date ideas. Most dates force you to contend with noise from other parties, but aboard the cruise, you can book a private trek to ensure it’ll just be the two of you. This is the ultimate power move, and it’s certain to impress that special person in your life.

Once you climb aboard the boat, it’ll be like the two of you are in your own little world. Leave your cellphones in a locker and enjoy having the unique experience of soaking in a hot tub that can usually accommodate up to 10 guests. You’ll be able to truly stretch out your legs as you revel in the hot bubbles together. 

Alternatively, if you’re looking for an ideal double-date idea, then you and three other people can enjoy the private luxury and beautiful sites of the city. Either way, you’ll have an intimate experience that you’ll remember forever!

  • Improved cardiovascular health

In fact, you’ll both feel loads better as your worries simply melt away. Nothing can seem that bad when you’re in the midst of ultimate relaxation, after all!

Once you combine the stress reducing benefits of soaking in a hot tub with the stress reducing benefits of spending time with your beloved, you’re both certain to end up feeling way more relaxed by the end of your cruise! 


Amazing Anniversary Surprise

I surprised my wife with a hot tub boat tour for our anniversary. I am so happy I did. We were so relaxed sitting in the tub, enjoying the Statue of Liberty and all the sights at night. The crew was amazing. Thanks to Zoe and capt Josh! Can’t recommend highly enough.

Wonderful Experience

he hot tub boat around Manhattan was one of the most wonderful things I've done. I highly recommend for a special occasion. The water temperature is perfect to hang out in for 90 mins in the cold without it getting too hot to handle. You will be up close to the statue of liberty and right under the Brooklyn Bridge. It's definitely a NYC highlight and I hope to do it again some day!

One of Our Coolest Experience!

By far one of the coolest experiences ever! Made extra amazing by the wonderful and attentive staff that truly went above and beyond. Zoe, Kelsey and Captain made my best friend’s bachelorette a truly memorable experience. Can’t recommend this tour enough!

It Was So Fun!

“I’ve sailed with Sea the City on their Hot Tub boats twice now (both on private tours with both tubs reserved, up to 20 people total), and the staff has been kind, understanding, fun, and easy. The first time was in Spring 2021, and the second time was recently in Spring 2023. They are thorough when it comes to a brief and safety rundown at the beginning of the tour, and for the rest of the evening, are completely on top of service when it comes to making sure the coolers are full of drinks, picking up empties, taking group pictures, etc. On this most recent reservation, I had indicated that my group was celebrating a special event, which was the Eurovision Final happening the following day. The staff actually put “Eurovision 2023” on a rainbow light board and took our picture with it. It was so fun and everyone was so surprise in the best way possible.

Fun Group Activity

As we were leaving the hot tub boat, my friends and I were already talking about when we could make time to go again. This was a fabulous time - we listened to music, had a glass of wine, looked at the sites of the city all while staying warm in the hot tub in this great tub boat experience. I arranged this activity for myself and 4 of my girlfriends just for fun because we don't get to see one another often enough. This was absolutely magical and we took a million photos which all came out so breathtaking with the city all around us and the view of the water. I highly recommend this boat trip. We all loved it.

Meet the Captain

We take your hot tub tour very seriously. We understand that you’ll be putting yourselves in our hands for two hours, and that’s why we only hire captains who have attained the rank of United States Coast Guard Master Captain. This means they’ve passed an exam and also have extensive experience at the helm of a ship. After all, being ranked as a United States Coast Guard Master Captain is the highest license available, so you’ll be getting the best of the best! 

Our Master Captain works in concert with our deckhands to ensure everything goes smoothly for your journey. The deckhands are available to you for anything you may need. For example, did you forget your towel in the changing room? No problem! One of our deckhands will be happy to retrieve it for you. Would you prefer ultimate privacy? Our deckhands can make themselves scarce, so that you can have the most romantic night of your life! 

Another role that our United States Coast Guard Master Captain fills is being a master storyteller. They can bring the history of New York City to life through entertaining tales that make the entire cruise even more worthwhile! Of course, if you’d rather spend uninterrupted time with your date, they’ll hold onto their stories for another day.
