New Hampshire’s Floating Tiki Huts Are a Bucket List Must This Summer
In a world where people seem to become increasingly innovative, fueled by a need to relax and party at the same time, your newest summer gotta-do-it activity is here.
Lake Winnipesaukee in Lanconia, New Hampshire has been hiding the wildest water activity we’ve seen yet: a floating, BYOB tiki hut boat that holds up to 10 of your best pals.
Now, these octagonal tiki huts are exactly what you are thinking they are, complete with island-style bar in the middle and a thatch roof overhead. There’s a small railing that goes the entire way around the hut with some nautical rope railing to keep your sight line pretty wide open.
You can choose the express cruise and float around for 90 minutes or charter the hut for a little bit longer and drift away for two hours. Plus, thanks to modern technology, each tiki hut is equipped with Bluetooth speakers so you can be "Jammin’" with your friends, or sing to your spouse "Don’t Rock My Boat."
You can hop off the hut and bob around in the lake with your friends, and if you’re lucky, catch a bit of good vibes during Reggae Night and have the most vacation-y feeling stay-cation ever.
And if you have zero idea how to drive a boat – or a floating hut, which is likely a new experience for even experienced boaters – have no fear. Your floating tiki hut comes with a captain who’ll take charge of that big old pirate ship-looking wheel so all you and the gang have to worry about is having fun and not falling off.
It might be the most fun you can have at four miles per hour and we hope someone reading this brings the idea down our way, soon.
