So, what is it that makes Ibiza the world’s top party destination? Is it the dozens of killer clubs? Could be, or maybe the heavenly sea and sand setting? That definitely plays a part, and the perfect Spanish summer heat? Well sure, that’s important too.
There’s plenty to get excited about on the famous White Isle, but with those beautiful blue seas all around, wouldn’t it be a crime not to get away from land for just a little while? With boat parties taking the party out onto open water under a scorching Mediterranean sun, visitors to Ibiza have license to disrupt the peaceful waves with a healthy dose of party anarchy. But with plenty of brands offering to help out with the seafaring madness, it can be a headache working out which Ibiza boat party tickets will serve you best. Here to help, our guide to the hottest boat parties to set sail this summer will help you fill out that precious Ibiza nightlife calendar.
Float your boat
Working with the wonderkid of the Ibiza club scene, Hi, Float Your Boat think they’ve got the perfect package. Having been an official partner to Carl Cox’s Revolution party as well as We Love… Sunday at Space, they certainly know what they’re doing too.
Music obsessives will be pleased to hear that Float Your Boat is best known for bringing world class superstar DJs aboard to play on possibly the finest sound system to ride the waves, and with three hours leading up to sunset that leaves plenty of time for getting wavy. Also offering entry to Hi and Ocean Beach with the boat party tickets gaining you a ticket to see the amazing Eric Prydz among others, this one’s an enticing deal for any willing sailor.
Meeting point: Itaca Bar
Runs: Every Friday from 25th May to 5th October
Balearica is all about showing its guests the beauty in life, whether that’s by celebrating the musical heritage of the Ibiza nightlife with anthems on the decks or by visiting the most stunning settings along the Island’s coast. A breathtaking journey from start to finish, the Balearica trips disembark from San Antonio harbour on the White Isle’s west coast and make sure to hit all of the best nature spots on their way to Sunset Strip, where stars of the scene like Mambo and Cafe Del Mar await.
Offering the chance to snorkel in pristine waters, see dolphins leap out of the waters by Conejera Island, pass landmarks like Atlantis and Es Vedra and all whilst listening to top DJs playing party classics, chillout tunes and Balearic house, you could be forgiven for thinking it sounds too good to be true.
For yet more bonus points, though, each ticket sold will include a donation to the exceptionally worthy CREM centre, which helps support the island’s diverse marine species. The first brand to make such a gesture in order to protect the local environment that serves them so well, the Balearica team clearly intend to make the most of their wonderful setting for as long as possible.
Meeting point: San Antonio harbour
Runs: Every Saturday from 30th June until 15th September
Go to any of the 36 countries that Pukka Up now operates in and you’ll find no shortage of people queueing up to tell you that it’s the real deal. No surprise, perhaps, considering the Pukka Up brand is behind over 400 events a year, serving 200,000 guests with the most decadent parties to sail the seven seas.
Following a mantra of “fun, flirtatious and carefree” partying, Pukka Up has long been hailed as one of the finest examples of loose partying that you’ll find on water, with fifteen plus years in game leading it to be considered the biggest boat party brand in the world. Having started out in Ibiza all those years ago, the formula has long since been perfected, and though quality is assured across the globe, there’s always a little bit extra saved to make the home leg events the best of them all.
Meeting point: Rio Ibiza
Runs: Every Tuesday from 5th June to 18th September
