With all eyes on the wedding planning and preparation, we think you and the boys deserve a little getaway to let your hair down and have some fun together. While you could just round everyone up for a few drinks at your local pub, we’ve got something a bit more special in mind. Fancy a boat party through the beautiful blue waters of Perth, anyone?
We caught up with the team at Wicked Bucks to get the low-down on this activity, and it seriously sounds like something that will tick everyone’s boxes. You’ll take to the water and experience a totally fresh perspective of the city as you cruise your way down the Swan River.
But the beauty doesn’t just stop there. Your boat will be aided and abetted by a pair of lovely Buck’s angels, who are under strict orders to keep the party vibes pumping. We’re talking about a free-flow of alcohol, seriously good tunes and an incredible view to match.
With a rum in one hand and your mates around you, it’s truly a once in a lifetime experience. Once the bucks cruise is over, you’ll be dropped back to the dock to continue the festivities in town.
Sounds epic, right? Just in case you need a little more convincing, the crew has put together their top five reasons why you should book a buck’s boob cruise in Perth today.
Five Reasons to go on a Buck’s Cruise in Perth
1. Everyone loves a bit of adventure
Most guys spend their childhoods watching adventure movies, creating their own adventures in the backyard or aspiring to be just like their favourite Hollywood adventure stars. While this is something that usually starts at a young age, it’s something most guys don’t grow out of either.
Forget about dreaming and start doing – this is your buddy’s final days of bachelor life after all! When you hop onboard your buck’s cruise in Perth, you’ll all feel like you’ve stepped onto the set of your favourite blockbuster. It’s an opportunity to pursue the pirate life, pretend you’re living the life of Leonardo DiCaprio, or just enjoy the time spent being treated by a lovely line-up of ladies.
The ride may be exciting, but the waters are much calmer than the party vibes. You’ll easily cruise along the calm waterways, without having to tackle any rough conditions. It’s practically the best of both worlds!
2. Perth is as pretty as a postcard
Plenty of people flock to the East Coast when they visit Australia, but there’s something pretty special about Perth. We would even go as far as to say it’s the country’s best kept secret. Western Australia is home to some of the best and most unique views in all of Australia, and Perth is no exception.
From the comfort of your boat, you’ll be treated to uninterrupted views of the Swan River, Perth city skyline and beyond. The beauty of taking in these views from the water is that you won’t have to fight any traffic or dodge buildings to get the best scenery.
If you manage to score a ride at sunset, you’re in for even more of a treat. With the sun setting over the water in this neck of the woods, you’ll have a front row seat to the best show in the house. The swirls of orange, yellow, red and pink are stunning enough to be their own artwork in a prestigious art gallery. The Wicked Bucks team highly recommends bringing your own camera, or at least your smartphone, because these are the sorts of sights that you’ll want to look back on in years to come.
3. The company is unmatched
When it comes to organising a buck’s party, the biggest drawcard is usually the quality time spent with your mates. As you get older, life gets busier and it’s not always as easy to round everyone up for some bonding time in the same place, at the same time. More often than not, buck’s parties are one of the last opportunities to do this before the lads start swapping your Sunday morning golf dates for brunch with the in-laws.
That’s where your buck’s party cruise comes in. With no distractions and plenty of fun in-store, you’re in for a day of serious quality time with each other. Start pumping the tunes and crack open an ice-cold beer, because it doesn’t get much better than this.
The company of your Wicked Bucks Angels are a super lovely extra touch too. These friendly, stunning and super chatty ladies are just as keen for a good time as you. They’ll be the ones cranking up the music and pouring you another drink, and they’ll look good while they’re doing it too.
4. Expect seriously luxurious comfort
This is no ordinary boat. You can forget about the tinny that you and the boys take out on fishing trips, because your Perth Bucks party cruise is next level comfortable. We’re talking about a fully kitted out boat, with all the on-board amenities you need for a seriously good trip. You can expect a state-of-the-art sound system, fridges to keep your beverages cold and an inviting lounge to sink into.
For the seasickness suffered by the group, Wicked Bucks has you covered too. In contrast to the rollers and storms of the Indian Ocean, the Swan River is lovely and flat. The waters are so calm, they often look like a mirror. Even the weakest of stomachs should be able to manage out here.
5. Hold onto the memories forever
Your buck’s cruise in Perth is honestly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. With the sun in. your eyes and the salt spray on your face, you’re bound to leave with plenty of stories to retell at the pub later that night. This is one of those bucks weekend trips to Perth that you’re guaranteed to still be looking back on in years to come.
