How to plan for a private event in San Diego during the holidays

San Diego is a wonderful place for a holiday party. The city has so many great restaurants and bars, but there’s one feature that’s sure to make the day special: the bay. Whether you choose Yacht America San Diego or a gorgeous seaside venue for your holiday party, you’re sure to create a celebration that your guests will never forget.

Where to Book Your Private Event

If you want to incorporate the San Diego Bay into your event, you have two options: finding a seaside venue or hiring a boat. Both options offer a beautiful view of the ocean.

By the Seaside at San Diego

San Diego has a wide variety of restaurants and hotels set right along the beach. If you want to remain on land for your shindig, you can look into these venues.

On a Boat off San Diego

To truly experience the bay, you need to book a dinner cruise San Diego. A privately chartered boat lets guests see the ocean in all its glory while providing an all-inclusive experience that means minimal planning.

Hosting a Successful Private Event at Sea

Chartering a boat is easier than you may think, as many companies offer party and dinner packages. Once you’ve chosen a company, you can sit down with a representative to plan out the details. As you do so, make sure you remember the following tips.

Make an Itinerary

One of the most important things you can do for your guests is create an itinerary. This step is crucial if you have a large group or people are traveling from out of town.

An itinerary lets everyone know what to expect. That way, everyone will be on time for departure and know where to go for dinner. To make things even easier, you can email a digital itinerary so people can look it up on their phones instead of carrying around a piece of paper that might get lost.

Find a Boat That Can Accommodate Your Group

Larger boats will cost more, but it’ll be worth it to host your entire party comfortably. Additionally, companies may limit how many people can be on one vessel for safety reasons. So, you may want to look at yachts before you finalize your guest list. Having to uninvite someone due to space limitations is something you want to avoid at all costs.

Manage Your Budget

Speaking of costs, make sure you set your budget before you start making reservations. It’s a good idea to research various packages, so you know the price of the following:

• Wine and other adult beverages

• Professional photography services

• Custom items such as signage and logos

Once you create your budget, make sure you stick to it.

Review Food Options

Finally, make sure you know about any special dietary needs among your guests. No one wants to be left out and hungry during a holiday party. Once you have a list, make sure the charter company can accommodate them. Most places are happy to offer alternatives when necessary. Private San Diego boat charters are perfect for an office party or gathering with loved ones. No matter what you celebrate during the holidays, you’re sure to have fun.
