Our Favorite Boating Events

The weather is starting to heat up, which means the lazy days of summer are on the not-so-distant horizon. Those precious days, of course, mean the return of many fun and exciting outdoor events. And among all of the pickings, boating events are a perennial favorite.

It’s easy to understand why boating events are such a big draw. For one thing, they are incredibly relaxing. Your clients or team will say goodbye to all of the daily grind’s stressors as you glide along the water, sip cocktails and soak up the fresh air and sunshine. A relaxed state of mind also bodes well for relationship building with clients or employees. Clients will be much more receptive to your pitch when they’re out on the water rather than being cooped up in a conference room.

Boating events come with spectacular views, too. From your on-the-water perch, you’ll look at familiar surroundings from a completely new angle. The incredible views and private space also translate to a VIP event, making your clients feel extra important. 

Such events also are convenient for most people. In fact, more than 90 percent of Americans live less than an hour from a navigable body of water.

If you’re looking to take your event off land, Kapow has an abundance of choices when it comes to boating events—and types of boats. Whether you want to host a small, intimate event or a big, boisterous party, there’s a boating experience that’s a perfect fit for you.

The yacht life

If you want to live large, consider an elegant three-course dinner cruise along Lake Michigan. Or opt for a one-of-a-kind experience with an evening cocktail reception on Lake Lanier aboard a beautiful, fully stocked houseboat—featuring a salon, a galley and an event room. For an even flashier option, spend a half day cruising by Miami on your very own private yacht, complete with captain and crew.

Smooth sailing

If sailing’s more your thing, how about a private charter to Angel Island, where you’ll be awed by the sprawling views of San Francisco, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge? Or a private cocktail party on a classic schooner that sails along Boston Harbor?

Row, row, row your boat

You’ll even find boating events that embrace team building and bonding. One of these—which will also get the muscles moving—teaches the art of rowing with the help of Olympic rowers. Or head out to Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club for a lobster bake, kayaking and beach games.
