It's perfect for warming up after your water activities, or for enjoying an evening beverage while lounging and star-gazing! If you're looking for an equally relaxing but dry alternative, opt for the trampoline nets at the front of the boat.
Underwater Blue Lights
Blue lights are amazing for attracting marine life and make for the perfect show at the end of the day.
