If you love getting out on the water but also love hot tubbing, the perfect activity exists: Hot tub boating! In several cities, including Seattle and San Diego, you can rent a boat that has a hot tub right on board.

If you’ve ever taken a dip in a chilly lake or ocean, you will understand the appeal of this innovative design. Imagine climbing back in the boat and, instead of wrapping yourself in a towel to dry off and warm up, you immerse yourself in a hot tub. No more shivering or dripping.

It’s basically the open-air equivalent to a spa with different temperature plunge pools, but a boat provides fresh air and way better views.

Check out this photo of people enjoying a hot tub boat via the Facebook page for Seattle’s Hot Tub Boats.

Meanwhile, as seen in this photo from the Facebook page for San Diego’s Hot Tub Cruisin’, some of these boats are designed with the hot tubs on top, rather than built into the boats:

Keep in mind that each boat must be driven by someone in your party with a valid driver’s license. Luckily, these boats are easy to maneuver and have been designed to go no faster than 5 mph.

Some more details to note: Hot tub boat rentals are typically booked in two-hour increments and range in price from $250 to $350 for two hours, depending on the company and the size of the boat.

In Seattle, the hot tub boats are located out on Lake Union, while San Diego’s hot tub boats can be found in Mission Bay. Depending on the size of the boat, you can fit up to six or 12 people, so they’re ideal for small gatherings.

Don’t live on the West Coast? Hammacher Schlemmer sells hot tub boats for $75,000, so you can go boating in a hot tub anywhere and anytime you please.
