Tips for the Most Enjoyable Open-Air Rooftop Cruise

People Enjoying At Open-Air Rooftop Cruise

An open-air rooftop deck on a yacht is a great way to enjoy the Washington, DC sights while cruising in style. Open-air decks are becoming increasingly popular on yachts of all sizes, as they provide a space to enjoy the fresh air and scenery while still being close to the many amenities of a large yacht. These uppermost decks are popular for sightseeing, dining, and simply relaxing while enjoying the view.

Day or night cruises on open-air boats can be used for various kinds of events such as parties, wedding receptions, corporate events, meetings, award ceremonies, and romantic evenings. The open-air deck provides many enticing features for any event!

Tips for Prime Open-Air Experiences

When cruising on an open-air yacht deck, you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared!

  • The weather: Weather will play a major role in your enjoyment. If it’s chilly, make sure to dress appropriately. Likewise, the summertime in Washington, DC can be blazing hot. Make sure to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and comfortable shoes. Checking the weather forecast can also be helpful to avoid any surprises from rain showers or windy conditions.
  • Anticipate your personal needs: Cruising the Potomac on one of our party yachts means you won’t have access to stores for supplies, such as any medicines you need or personal items. Also, make sure to charge your phone beforehand for pictures to capture those unique moments on our party yachts!
