When visiting Ibiza you have to experience a boat party. When else in the year are you going to float on the beautiful calming Balearic sea, alongside wild uninhabited (humans, that is) rocky islands and likeminded clubbers whilst listening to your favourite tunes? There are so many boat parties to choose from, but luckily we’ve put together some of the hottest boat parties on the White Isle for you!
Firstly, possibly one of the best and longest running boat party is Pukka Up. This departs from Playa D’en Bossa on Tuesdays and San Antonio on both Tuesdays and Fridays. The boat from Playa D’en Bossa costs €65, which seems a little steep, but does include entry to the boat (along with one free drink and free on-board BBQ) and entry to Carl Cox at Space that evening. The boat from San Antonio is €55, includes entry to the boat, either entry to Carl Cox or Come Together, both at Space, depending on the day you go, one free drink and most importantly, a breathtaking and unforgettable experience watching the sunset. See below to purchase tickets!
Another popular boat party is Liverpool’s Garlands boat party on Fridays. The tickets start at €40, and include entry to the boat, entry to Garlands that night at Eden and three free drinks, not to mention a plethora of sparkly, garish and camp entertainment. If you enjoy your fruity funky house, you will love this boat party. Again, as it leaves at 6 and returns at 9 from the San Antonio area, you see that beautiful sunset. You will be able to pick up tickets when you are on the island, but you can buy them in advance by calling the Garlands main office 01512311105! You can also join their Facebook group for further information.
Ibiza Rocks the Boat!
An alternative and increasingly popular boat party is the Ibiza Rocks: The Boat Party, also known as Ibiza Rocks the Boat, which runs on Wednesdays. Playing the finest in indie, rock, disco and pop, the boat runs from 2pm until 5pm. You can buy tickets just for the boat party, costing €35 or a combined ticket with the gig that night, which allows you to queue jump for €65, which also includes free entry to the Ibiza Rocks after party. You also get three free drinks! You can purchase tickets at the Ibiza Rocks Bar or call either Kemi (0034) 655 682 643 or Nicola (0034) 674 572 363 for more information.
The very popular Noah’s Ark boat party, the brother of The Zoo Project,sets off at 1pm over in San Antonio on Saturdays. Tickets cost around €60, but that includes entry to the boat, entry to the Zoo Project and entry to the mysterious Zoo Project after party, so you get a lot for your money.
