They say that youth is wasted on the young, but many of those who have taken a party boat in Miami beg to differ. Whether all-inclusive, or BYOB, the party boat experience in Miami is strong. You can join a bunch of fellow travelers for one of the regularly organized party cruises or head out exactly when you want to on a private charter, of which there are many willing to handle the nautical side of things while you get tipsy topside.

All Inclusive Party Boat Miami

Starting things out how we mean to go on is this offering from Miami Party 4 U. This is the kind of party tour where the boat trip and the booze alike are included in the price. There’s a DJ onboard spinning hip hop and Latin music and if you take the sunset party boat, you’ll get to see the Miami skyline illuminated as darkness descends. Be warned, this is the kind of boat where twerking reigns and your inhibitions are best put to one side. This three-hour party cruise runs twice a day from Fri to Sun. From $130 per person.

Boat Party in Miami with Free Open Bar and Live DJ

This classier party boat experience is designed to feel more like a nightclub on the open waters of Biscayne Bay. El Agua, as this club is called, runs a fun ship, with unlimited booze for three hours as standard and a deck designed much like a nightclub, with VIP seating around the edges. This cruise departs later, waiting until 7pm so that the party mood of low lights and loud music can really kick in, with the high rises of Miami as a backdrop. Runs Thu to Sun. From $185 per person.

Private Miami Beach Boat Tour with Champagne

While the group party boats of Miami are a ton of fun, they’re not exclusive. If you’re traveling with your own crew and want to sort out a private charter, then there’s a variety of options to suit different budgets, events and group sizes. This two-hour tour in a 20-ft bayliner is great for groups of up to six people. Champagne is included in the price as you explore the solitary islands and beaches of Biscayne Bay. Please note that there’s an additional captain’s fee at $50 per hour on this tour. From $400 per group.

You’ll also have more time to spend at top party locations like Nixon Sandbar, where plenty of other party boats often converge. This private party boat charter is available daily and the captain’s fees are included in this price. From $650 per group.
