This newly-opened attraction in Victoria combines two classic summer pastimes—hot tubs and boats. Go for a 1.5 hour ride near the Upper Harbour and Gorge Waterway while immersed in a hot tub. Each boat can accommodate up to six people and it comes with a Bluetooth speaker to blast some tunes for your own private party on the water. It’s perfect for a double date. If you’re not in Victoria or don’t have plans to go any time soon—fear not. Hot Tub Boat is also in the works for Vancouver and Kelowna.

Bring the party to you with a boat that is equipped with a BBQ. Cruise out of Granville Island and tour around the scenic False Creek in one of Joe’s BBQ Boat vessels. You can rent one of the boats for 2.5 hours for $299. No boating license is required and it can fit a maximum of eight people per boat. Of course, you’ll have to bring all the fixins’ you need for grilling on the water. This just might be the definition of summer goals and the best double date idea ever.
