San Francisco Yacht Charters – Come Celebrate on the Bay!

San Francisco Bay CruiseA San Francisco Bay Cruise on a luxury yacht is a terrific choice for individuals interested in celebrating on the Bay. Such charters can be appropriated for numerous occasions. Below are a few ideas that would be appropriate for renting a yacht charter but these are by no means the only ones.

Birthday Parties:  What better way to celebrate growing one year older than on a luxury yacht? Not only is it an enjoyable way to do so, but it’s also unique.   A person who celebrates in this manner will be the talk of all of their friends and family. One of the coolest things about being able to charter a yacht is the ability to access one without actually purchasing it. Few people can afford yachts, especially a luxury one. Chartering makes it possible for a person to live like the rich and famous without being either. Anyone looking to impress their peers and have a good time should consider a San Francisco Bay Cruise.

Anniversaries: Anniversaries are another great occasion to charter a yacht. Spending a few hours on a yacht with one’s honey, celebrating life together, would be very memorable. It would also be quite special. Whether this is a surprise excursion or one planned by the couple, it would definitely be an occasion to remember.

Date Night: The occasion doesn’t have to be a special one to charter a yacht. It’s a terrific choice for date night. Couples tired of dinner and the movies may want to consider a more exciting option, with a chartered yacht being an underused option. Why not go big and make “date night” something to really remember.

Proposals: When it comes to proposals, it’s either “go big or go home.” A gentleman (or woman) who wants to impress his beloved when popping the big question, will need to think outside the box. A chartered yacht is one option that is sure to impress. If she says yes (or even if she doesn’t), it is almost guaranteed that she will enjoy reliving the moment and bragging to all her family and friends about it. A chartered boat on the San Francisco Bay
should definitely impress her (or him).

A San Francisco Bay Cruise: In Summary

There are numerous occasions where a San Francisco Bay Cruise on our luxury yachts would be an excellent choice. They include, but are not limited to the above, birthday parties, date night, anniversaries and proposals. Each of the aforementioned is ideal. Each offers an opportunity to celebrate life, love and happiness with one’s closet friends, lover or family members. This list is not exhaustive, as was mentioned above. There are many other occasions where a yacht charter might be the perfect setting.

We just hosted an event there, and it was fantastic. The crew was first class: helpful, attentive, fun, cheery, and with a great attitude. The yacht was a surprise for our guests, who thought it was even better than we described.
Plus, when whales started showing up in the Bay, the captain slowed the boat down long enough for us to view, and another crew member would say over the microphone which side they were on.
Great experience!” Kevin

Top Tips for a Holiday Party in San Francisco

Boat Cruise San Francisco BayCreating a great holiday party in San Francisco requires the right mixture of creativity and planning. You can choose to do all of the work on your own, or you can get the expert advice of event planning specialists, like the experienced staff at Empress Events. Either route can give you the edge when it comes to making your holiday party an event to remember.

Tips for a Holiday Party in San Francisco

– Set the mood with a unique theme or color scheme. Skip the traditional colors for the holiday and choose a color that will represent the holiday but still color a little outside the lines. Carry the color scheme all the way through from the invites to the food (if possible) to some of the songs that are played during the evening. When it comes to choosing the theme, the only real limits will be your imagination. This can be a great time to work with an events specialist to get some ideas and insight on direction for your holiday party.

– Think about the purpose of the gathering. A holiday party designed to gather will be set up and arranged a little different from one that focuses on celebrating an event, achievements or awards. You will need to be specific with your event location to ensure that the flow of the evening works with the purpose of the holiday party.

– Put everything in writing. The best way to guarantee problems for your event is to rely on conversations (either in person or on the phone). Put everything down in writing – for your benefit and for the benefit of those providing any of the services for the night. Be sure that all parties sign what is written so that everyone is LITERALLY on the same page about what is expected for the event.

– Expect things to have a few flaws. A perfect night would be the best experience for everyone, but things happen. Let the things that can’t be changed go and enjoy the party. You can deal with those issues after the night is over. Your guests will have a better time (even if things are not perfect) if you are having a good time as well.

Putting together a holiday event that is remembered for all of the right reasons can be a challenge. The earlier you begin to put your event together the easier that task becomes. Following a few tips can help you when it comes time to crafting your holiday party in San Francisco.
