Ultimate Houseboat Party Ideas

Not much can compare to a party on a lake during the summertime. The air is warm, the water is cool, and the fun never stops. After you’ve gathered the perfect group of friends together, it’s time to start planning for your epic houseboat party. Here are a few ideas to get you started.


Karaoke competition party 

After a fun day on the lake, invite each of your friends to participate in a karaoke singing competition. Get the party started by playing one of your favorite “hype songs” to get the crowd involved. Once you gather the contestants, have them decide which song they want to sing before they step up to the microphone. At the end of the night, have the entire crowd vote by cheering when you point to each contestant. The contestant(s) who gets the loudest cheers, wins!


What you’ll need:

  • -A karaoke machine (like this one)
  • -Several karaoke song discs
  • -Extra microphones
  • -A prize for the winner or winning group


Holiday themed party

As fourth of July quickly approaches, you may want to get a head start on your party planning. To get in the party spirit, make sure you pack your most patriotic outfits and swimwear to bring with you on the boat. Have an “All-American” menu of burgers and hot dogs prepared for grilling on the upper deck. Also, you’ll want to download your favorite playlist to your music device before hitting the water.


What you’ll need:

  • -Holiday themed outfits
  • -Burgers, hot dogs, buns and condiments
  • -Festive playlist
  • -Red and blue tubes for floating
  • -Tasty iced beverages


Hawaiian Luau party

Imagine yourself sitting on the upper deck wearing your favorite Hawaiian shirt while casually sipping on a fruity beverage as you watch the sun go down. Now imagine that all your loved ones are surrounding you laughing and having a great time with the faint sound of tropical music in the background. Does this sound like heaven to you? Make your day dream come to life by throwing a luau party on your next houseboat outing.

What you’ll need:

  • Luau party decorations
  • -Grass skirts
  • -Fruity beverages
  • -Tropical music
  • -Colorful leis
  • -Kabobs on the menu
