Ibiza Boat Party 2015

Posted on February 11, 2015

Climbing on board a boat and heading out to sea has become the must have party experience of the last few seasons in Ibiza. The rise in the amount of boat parties and the number of sailings has been phenomenal as every clubber that lands in Ibiza during the summer includes it in their itinerary. Many of them secure their place on board before they even leave their home, such has become the demand for these parties. There are numerous boats to choose from, from the acoustic and indie mayhem of the Ibiza Rocks the Boat party to the luxury of a five star catamaran cruise to Formentera and back. All of the boat parties offer an amazing experience and with all of them tied into after parties on land when you get back, they also offer amazing value for money, no matter what your musical preference. In alphabetical order, here are the protagonists to be looking out for this summer, and if we had to give you one tip, it would be book online before you head to the island, we have noticed a dramatic increase in boat party traffic already this year!

Beautiful People heads into its eighth season on the island, offering its stunning crowd an experience that will live long in the memory. Sailing daily from June 2015, although there are some dates available throughout May, (check the Essentialibiza Calendar for details and tickets) from Figueretes, Playa d’en Bossa, it features a trip to Formentera and back, with some talented residents often welcoming international guest DJs aboard. The emphasis is on fun, with a stop for swimming in the Mediterranean as well as some beach games and activities when you reach Formentera. Beautiful People was born from an idea of combining two Ibiza traditions, its stunning beaches and vibrant parties, the result is a fun filled day with Beautiful People followed by a collaboration with some of the island’s most famous parties for an all night affair.

Float Your Boat made a big impact in its debut year but when you consider it is the official pre-party of both Carl Cox’s Revolution party and We Love Sundays, both in Space Ibiza, it’s hardly a massive shock. Tuesday and Sunday sailings, from San Antonio, proved popular, with the bonus of entry into the two massive Ibiza parties and the added attraction of seeing your heroes up close and personal on the boat. Carl Cox featured on the boat as did Jon Rundell and James Zabiela, to name only a few and with some of the finest residents that feature in many of the best island parties offering a musical constant throughout the summer, it was a big success. Ibiza 2015 sees the concept pick up where it left off, with Jason Bye spearheading the on-island talent and a stack of high profile, international guests planned. Sundays kick off on June 7 and run until September 20, while Tuesday kicks off on June 16, with a FYB only party. June 23 and 30 sees FYB plus free bus and entry to Space for the Intec parties and July 7 sees the start of the collaboration with Carl Cox and his Revolution party in Space, including a free bus and entry to the club. Ibiza 2015 also sees FYB unveil a state of the art Pioneer XY sound system, offering one of the best sound systems on the Med.

Ibiza Rocks The Boat is the one boat party that can claim to be different in as much as the soundtrack has less of a four-four vibe and more of an acoustic. The official pre-party of the live extravaganza that celebrated a decade of amazing gigs in the heart of San Antonio, Ibiza Rocks The Boat is known for tempting some of the biggest live acts on the planet to jump on board and enjoy the warm up to their gig later that night. As well as the chance to see some of your musical heroes in the flesh, there is more often than not a live performance from some of the hottest up and coming talent, meaning you might just see one of the first performances of the next Ed Sheeran! Musically, it is on a more band based indie tip, but the vibe is equal to its dance cousins and with the live event and after party to follow, it makes for a great day and night out and wicked value for money.

Lost In Ibiza is the party for you if you like your dance music on an underground tip. Tied in with Paradise in 2014 as its after party, the boat has a Funktion 1 soundsystem and with Concrete Music as residents, offers a deep journey as you make your way out to sea for sunset. This is a party that has been focused on its musical delivery from the off, inviting some of the cutting edge spinners that have been making waves on the global scene to join them and a crowd that is known for being well educated and up for the party. Ibiza 2015 kicks off in style on June 10, with some special guests to be announced nearer the time and the Paradise collaboration continues this summer on Wednesday night with free coach and entry into DC10, kicking off on July 1. It’s a musical journey that will test your stamina and engage your creative juices, definitely not for the feint hearted!

Noah’s Ark is another boat that takes its music very seriously, but it also enjoys the fun element of the adventure. With many of its patrons already dressed for the Zoo Project after party, the chance of seeing the zebras, lions, tigers and even pandas going on two by two are very good indeed. Like all Zoo Project parties, the embracing of your inner animal is a prerequisite, and makes for a colourful crew. Zoo Project has always identified new talent and promoted it as much as possible, Noah’s Ark employs the same philosophy, with relatively unknown but hugely talented spinners occupying the booth and delivering some of the freshest cutting edge beats as you head for sunset. Once you head back to dry land, it’s off to the Zoo where the music and the adventure continues. Great value for money, especially if you like getting into character!

Oceanbeat Ibiza enjoyed a monster season in 2014, having to find extra boats to meet the demand for its tickets. The cast and crew of the fun party is one of the most attractive things about it, they always have a huge smile on their faces and are the first ones involved in the party games on board. The music is of the high energy, big room variety, the crowd is cosmopolitan and the crew is a well-trained machine with the single-minded ambition of putting an ear to ear grin on your face. The entertainment kicks off while you are in the queue waiting to board and doesn’t stop, even when you return to shore. Musically, it’s EDM all the way, collaborating with some of the top labels as well as Ibiza Global Radio, with champagne showers, saxophonist, bongo player and watermelon filled with exotic drinks for everyone. Professional go-go dancers add to the carnival atmosphere as the sexy crowd enjoys a memorable day at sea.

Pukka Up is the longest serving Ibiza boat party, having recently celebrated its tenth anniversary. The bright pink branding is a stand out and when you see it covering multiple boats in the San Antonio port, each with a queue longer than the last, it makes for an impressive sight. Pukka Up has been setting the bar for the Ibiza boat party for as long as we can remember and in 2014, with after party collaborations with Together in Amnesia and Aoki’s Playhouse in Pacha, as well as a special VIP catamaran party on Friday, it took it’s operation to another level. Pukka Up has a large contingent of clubbers from the UK mixed with a great cosmopolitan crowd from all over Europe, with one thing in common, the love of a great party. Armed with first class DJs, live musicians and the knowledge that ten years of delivering the finest Mediterranean adventure brings, Pukka Up never fails to deliver, and had more boats out on the water last year than ever before.

Cirque De La Nuit had multiple offers in 2014 with a daily boat party and a special catamaran that collaborated with numerous high profile brands and DJs. Ibiza 2015 sees the popular party merge all party activity on to one 400 capacity boat, with no announcement as to when the guest DJs will play. This means that you take a lucky dip and could be listening up close to the likes of Solomun when you get on board! There will be the usual live Sonica Radio broadcasts throughout the season, but again these will be unannounced.
