A Hot-Tub Boat on the Hudson


Forget about a hot tub by the Hudson River. Now you can get in a hot tub on the Hudson River by getting on the hot tub boat.

The hot tub boat is run by Sea the City, a water sports company that has a fleet of Jet Skis for rent and recently added the 40-foot catamaran with a large bathroom, changing room and twin tubs.


You can rent the boat by the tub for up to 8 people, starting at $349 for two people on weekdays, or you can book the entire boat for up to 16 people on a weekend for around $1,800.

The 90-minute cruise is BYOB, is operated by a USCG licensed captain plus a deckhand and includes views of the Statue of Liberty.
