Birthday Boat Parties for Adults

Public & Private Cruise Options

There are a few different options you have when booking your birthday boat party aboard the Pontoon Saloon. Our 21+ public cruises are great for smaller groups and those looking for a lively, bar-type atmosphere on the water. You can start your celebration day out with a bang and your favorite Champagne on our beloved Mimosa Cruise, or coast into the evening as the sun sets over Music City on our Sunsets & Skylines. You’ll be dancing, mingling, boozing, and taking in the sights of Nashville all from the water. Our cruise director might just give you a shoutout for your birthday!

A Luxury Private Cruise caters to those larger groups looking to customize and tailor their ideal birthday boat party. Bring your party of up to 45 guests for a 2-hour birthday cruise on the Cumberland. Add on services such as catering, alcohol delivery, and local live music to really take your celebration up a notch! The boat comes equipped with a catering table, lounge seating, turf, large sound system, and a bar with a DJ/bartender for all your party needs. You can even decorate it to match your personal style!

Choose Your Vibe

The best part about Pontoon Saloon is the ability to choose your vibe. With our public vs. private options, you have the opportunity to make it as rowdy or as low key as you wish. Our public cruises will provide a fun honky tonk atmosphere, as you get a mix of bachelor/bachelorette parties, girls’ trips, and people just looking to let loose on vacation. These booze cruises provide the honky tonk vibes you need to get the party started or keep it going. We provide ice, cups, coolers, and mixers so you are set to have a good time from the second you step foot on our boat. Our Cruise Director serves as the party host, DJ, and bartender—taking care of all your beverage concoction needs and playing the tunes that will be sure to get you moving and grooving! No time to get booze ahead of time? No worries! We offer beer & seltzer buckets, too!

If a Pontoon Party cruise isn’t your idea of fun, our public Sunsets & Skylines cruise might be right up your alley. This cruise offers amazing photo opportunities and beautiful skyline views. Enjoy the breeze and tunes during this fan-favorite happy hour cruise. 

On our BYOB cruises, you can bring any drink of choice, including alcohol-free beverages, to create the party vibe you enjoy best! We have plenty of guests who come on board and don’t drink. Our public cruises have a fun atmosphere for everyone!

Our Luxury Private Cruise is also a great option for either type of vibe. With our customizable options, the honky tonk crew can opt-in for alcohol delivery, beer & seltzer packages, song requests (even karaoke!), and be loud without worrying about other guests. The lowkey crowd can take advantage of the private feature by having under-21 party guests, alcohol-free options, and a tamer choice of music by coordinating with our Cruise Director.

Kid-Friendly Birthday Cruises

Kids Love it on the Pontoon!

Our Pontoon cruise is also a fun and safe option for kids of all ages! Our Luxury Private Cruise boat provides ample space for kids and their parents to play games like limbo, eat cake, and enjoy time on the water. On these birthday cruises, kids get so excited to be on the Pontoon, looking out at the water and seeing a unique view of the city. The younger ones get starstruck meeting our captain who runs the show and takes over the tunes with karaoke. 

Our vessel is Coastguard approved with all safety measures in place so your kids can have the best time on board and parents don’t have to worry!

Cater Your Cruise

Feel free to bring your own food, cake, and snacks, but we also have services in place to make it super easy for you! Through our local partnerships, we make it simple and convenient for parents doing the party planning, especially if they have some picky eaters on their hands. Hattie B’s and Martin’s BBQ have delicious kid favorites, such as chicken fingers and mac and cheese. Pon’s snack boards can be great for kids who may just need something simple like fruit, veggies, and crackers + cheese. Mix and match these eateries for a perfect menu for both parents and kids.

Fun for Kids & Adults

Our cruise is the best of both worlds for parents and kids because it can be tailored to fit the fun of all ages. A party for kids can also be a party for parents! They can opt-in to BYO-liquor, beer, wine, or have beers/seltzers included in their cruise and ready to go when they arrive! Enjoy mingling at the bar top tables, and enjoy access to the bar in the back run by our Cruise Director. These features elevate the environment just a bit to cater to the adults on board. 

You’ll have plenty of cooler space for the kids’ drinks of choice! Does the birthday star have a favorite song? You can easily work with our Cruise Director to play age-appropriate music and songs that the kids will enjoy.
