Hens Parties

With longer days, balmy nights and spring weddings just around the corner, what better way to celebrate a Hen’s Party than on board Crusader 1 with Sunshine Coast Afloat.

Whether they are called Bachelorette parties (USA), Doe parties (Canada) or Kitchen teas (South Africa), the idea is to honour the bride-to-be with a girls gathering just before “tying the knot.” In Australia, we tend to use the term “hen’s party” for an exclusive ladies party before the bride walks down the aisle. There are two theories as to where this term originated. Some believe it comes from the word “henna” which is a pre-wedding custom in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia, while others believe it comes from 14th Century English word “hen” which did not just refer to birds, but rather all female of a species.

Today, hen’s parties offer spa treatments, male strippers, winery tours and art classes as a treasured rite of passage with girlfriends before the “big day.” But if you are looking for something different and affordable with a bunch of friends on the Sunshine Coast, we can tailor a celebration to suit your needs.

You can book “Crusader 1”, our 55 foot open deck vessel, exclusively for your group to drink, dance and laugh the evening away. Enjoy the views of the Mooloolaba Bay, Mooloolah River or canals while partying and playing games to enjoy pre-wedding festivities. Flexibility is the key with a range of different seating, times and decorations available. A fully licensed bar is available or BYO, along with food and music. Endless possibilities exist to celebrate that special time with a bride-to-be. Contact us for a quote.

If you’d like to experience any of our other activities or make a booking,  feel free to give us a call on 0412 155 814 or email us on – info@sunshinecoastafloat.com.au.  You can also book online if you wish.
