From popular bachelorette locations to underrated cities, this list of warm bachelorette destinations will help you find a boating location that matches your group’s interests, personalities, and budget.
10 Warm Places to Go Boating for Your Spring Bachelorette Party
1. Key West
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 78-85 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Key West Boat & Jet Ski Adventures
The southernmost place in the Continental United States is the islands of Key West, Florida.
If you are unfamiliar with what the atmosphere will be like here, all you need to know is that Key West is a non-stop party! Plus, one of the main draws for this bachelorette destination is how stunning the water is here – it looks as blue as the Bahamas.
There are also plenty of great restaurants for fresh seafood and bars serving up tropical cocktails.
Fun Fact: Did you know that the Rum Runner cocktail is thought to have been invented in Key West by the famous bartender, John Ebert.
2. Savannah/Tybee Island, GA
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 65-77 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Savannah Party Cat
Savannah is a great choice for a warm bachelorette destination for spring. With tons of historical charm displayed through its cobblestone streets, you can spend the better half of a day exploring the shops and restaurants.
Tybee Island is just 30 minutes from downtown Savannah so it’s easily one of the best bachelorette party destinations for boating. Tybee Island has a 3-mile stretch of beaches with 5 unique beaches you can tan and swim from.
If your crew is looking to stay active there is also the ability to take surf lessons. Or rent paddleboards and kayaks to uncover the barrier island and marshes.
Biking is also another popular activity that you can do in Savannah or Tybee Island.
The hardest part about this bachelorette destination will be deciding whether to stay in the historical downtown or on the beach.
3. Clearwater/Tampa Bay
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 71-80 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Bach Boats in Clearwater
The Tampa Bay area is a more affordable alternative to Miami and if you don’t care about spotting celebrities then you won’t be missing out on much.
The Tampa Bay area has its own award-winning beaches, trendy restaurants, fun bars, and nightclubs. In particular, Clearwater Beach stands out for its sparkling white sand beaches, luxury resorts, and waterfront dining.
A spring bachelorette in Tampa Bay is the way to go because the weather during March, April, and May is typically perfect for boating!
If your group wants to explore the area, Clearwater is located just 40 minutes from Tampa and 45 minutes from downtown St Pete.
4. San Diego
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 67-69 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Sip & Sea Cruises
Spring in San Diego is still considered the off-season because the temperatures aren’t quite as hot when compared to the other warm bachelorette party destinations on this list.
However, the advantage here is that you’ll be able to score great prices on hotels/Airbnbs and maybe even flights too.
Boating will still be comfortable but don’t plan on tanning or swimming. Instead, plan a group hike for sunrise or sunset (there are so many in the general area), go for a spa day, rent bikes, or go winery hopping.
The food in San Diego is also some of the best in the country so you’ll be in for a treat.
5. Cabo San Lucas
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 84-91 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Mai Thai Charters
I’m sure you’ve seen epic Instagram pictures and videos of Cabo from the water. Because how could one go to Cabo and NOT go boating?
That is exactly why is it on our list of best bachelorette party destinations for boating. And if your girl gang loves hot weather I would argue that Cabo takes the top spot during the springtime.
Beyond having a perfect day at sea, there are so many notable things to do in Cabo. From partying at a fun day club, eating fresh Mexican food, hanging out on the beach, and continuing to celebrate into the wee hours of the night at a lively nightclub.
The main disadvantage is that Cabo San Lucas is a luxury choice so don’t expect to travel here on a budget.
6. Austin/Lake Travis, Texas
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 76-88 F
Any wannabe cowgirls out there? Austin would be an ideal bachelorette destination to break out your cowboy boots for some line dancing but also to grab your swimsuit and spend time boating on Lake Travis.
Although Austin is one of the most popular bachelorette locations, the positive from this is that many boating companies offer a unique spin to your classic party pontoon.
Love & Boat offers Luxury Picnics on a Donut Boat for groups of up to 6 and Retro Boat ATX has adorable antique boats that would be perfect for a photoshoot. If your group wants to do something adventurous you can learn to wakeboard with After Hours.
Did you know that Austin is only a short day trip to the wine region of Fredericksburg? Just another reason why this city is such a versatile bachelorette party location!
7. Gulf Shores, Alabama
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 71-83 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Luna Lú Charters
If you want your girls getaway to revolve around the water I can’t think of a better place than Gulf Shores, Alabama. It’s primarily just a beach town so this would be perfect for a laidback group. Rent a big beach house and spend quality time together playing games and cooking when you’re not on the beach!
Beyond boat rentals, there are a lot of other water sports you can do such as jet skiing, parasailing, and even foilboarding! But you can save money if you keep things simple.

8. Lake Powell, Arizona
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 64-83 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Many options through Boatsetter
One of the most unique picks for a warm bachelorette party destination is Lake Powell, Arizona. The rocky backdrop of this reservoir is bucket list worthy! It’s no wonder 2 million people visit here annually.
Unfortunately, Lake Powell is not easily accessible so this is only a realistic option for groups who are willing to fly into Flagstaff and then drive a couple of hours to Page (the closest city to Lake Powell).
However, if you’ve got the wanderlust to make it happen then I’d suggest renting a houseboat for a bachelorette weekend you won’t soon forget! Plus, it would likely be more cost-effective than paying for accommodations in Page and a separate boat charter.
Spring in Lake Powell is off-season so the prices will be low.
In the area, there are many other outdoorsy things to do such as the Horseshoe Bend viewpoint, the Rainbow Bridge National Monument, and hiking through Antelope Canyon.
9. San Juan, Puerto Rico
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 81-84 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Charters Puerto Rico
Want the feeling of going international? Puerto Rico is the best alternative to traveling abroad for your bachelorette. Being that it’s a US territory you won’t have to worry about having a passport if you’re a citizen.
Another perk is that flights to San Juan, Puerto Rico can be very affordable from many major cities. In San Juan, there is so much to do and history to learn about – it’ll be hard to narrow down your itinerary.
What stands out to me about boating in San Juan is that you’re able to visit pristine islands like Culebra and Vieques. The water looks dreamy!
Average Weather Temperature in Spring: 77-83 F
Best Boat Charter Company: Many options on Boatsetter
Are glitz and glam are part of your personality? Then Miami is waiting for you and your girls to arrive in style!
It’s perfect for a spring bachelorette party because you’re likely to enjoy unlimited sunshine.
There are beautiful beach clubs, pool parties, and nightclubs stretching from downtown to South Beach.
To offset the club scene for something a bit more private be sure to rent a luxury yacht and enjoy the iconic views of the Miami skyline while popping open a bottle of champagne!
And of course, when talking about Miami we can’t overlook the impressive culinary scene. Many of the best restaurants have award-winning chefs. Not to mention that the atmosphere and decor will make the perfect background for a squad pic!
