DONUT BOAT HIRE IN TORREVIEJA offers something unusual for your holidays this year, combining everything you love about a traditional charcoal barbecue with all the pioneering adventures of the high seas.
Created specifically for an unforgettable inshore dining experience these quirky little Donut Boats have been riding a wave of success, appearing in lakes and seas across Europe and North America. And now you can find them locally in Torrevieja.
Step aboard for a memorable dining experience at sea, floating around the safe Mediterranean waters of Torrevieja's magnificent port area, or drop anchor and enjoy beautiful vistas of Playa del Acequión beach while you sit back with a cool beer or enjoy a glass of Spanish wine.
Each barbecue party boat offers seating for up to 10 passengers around a family-size table with a large covered charcoal barbecue integrated into the centre. Cup-holders and carefully crafted cut-outs ensure your dinner (and all-important choice of beverage) remains ship-shape during your cruise.
The unique circular design of the craft is unsinkable and exceptionally stable with a flat floor and plenty of storage space for cool boxes, food, drink, and seafaring essentials. A retractable parasol offers some welcome shade from the sun and covers the entire vessel.
Donut Boat hire in Torrevieja, a barbecue experience
There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the warm Mediterranean Sea, and a swim ladder provides easy access to and from the water. Propulsion is provided by a small Yamaha outboard motor with enough power to navigate the spacious waterways.
Each boat comes equipped with a JBL Bluetooth speaker system, LED lights for nighttime navigation, and the symmetrical shape offers panoramic 360° sea views wherever your guests might be seated.
The private party boats are ideal for days out with friends, a memorable personal family dining experience at sea, or even corporate events. Immediately Instagrammable, Donut Boats promise some super holiday photos that will prove genuinely interesting to your friends and coworkers back home.
Two different boat sizes are available: a smaller vessel catering for a maximum of 6 people or a larger Donut Boat that accommodates up to 10 guests onboard. Boat rental is available every day throughout the spring and summer, either at lunchtime from 11:30 until 15:30 or for evening dinner sessions departing port from 17:00 until 21:00.
But the party doesn't stop once the summer ends, and Donut Boats are available for hire during the autumn and winter months too. From 1st October until 31st March lunchtime hire sessions take place from 12:00 until 16:00 every day of the week.
Lunch or dinner sessions cost €200 for the smaller boat and €250 for the larger craft. The boats are fully insured and completely family-friendly, but “El Capitán” must be at least 18 years old to pilot the craft.
