Dancing Astronaut Does Ibiza: Boat partying with Cirque de la Nuit
Amid a backdrop of blistering sunshine, sizzling tapas, and a beautiful Mediterranean coastline, Dancing Astronaut has officially arrived in Ibiza. We’ve previewed the parties, broken the headlines, looked on with envy as our Spanish compatriots danced until sunrise to the world’s top techno, and now we’ve been there to experience the madness firsthand. Through a series of narratives, we’ll be reviewing some of the biggest parties in Ibiza as part of our running feature Dancing Astronaut Does Ibiza.
Boat parties have become an increasingly popular phenomenon in Ibiza, yet none do it better than Cirque De la Nuit. The cruise service provides an all-day experience in Playa d’en Bossa centered around good times and good house music.
Partnering with clubs like Backstage, Sankeys, and Space, Cirque de la Nuit caters talented lineups of DJs within the confines of their intimate boat setting. When they aren’t hosting island favorites like Darrius Syrrosian and Ilario Alicante, their talented resident DJs are on hand to show off their skills.
The party starts at beautiful open-air venue Backstage where guests lounge around the pool to some top notch daytime house and techno selections. From there, a five minute walk to the beach yields a three-story boat big enough to fit over one hundred guests. The center console is focused around a compact DJ booth where local residents like Ryan Platts and Sebastian Lahm are on hand to lay down some tropical tunes on a pair of CDJs.
To the soundtrack of lighthearted poolside music, the boat embarks off the coast of Ibiza, offering an unparalleled view of the island. Along the way to the primary destination Formentera — a gorgeous swimming spot – the staff offer free jet ski rides for all those inclined. One of the biggest sellers of Cirque de la Nuit’s party is the inclusion of an open bar, which many similarly priced boat excursions lack in favor of a few drink coupons. With unlimited sangria, beer, champagne, mojitos and more, you can’t beat the value of this unique facet of the party.
When the boat returns after over three hours on the sea, the party’s not over just yet. Once again at Backstage, Cirque de la Nuit caters a free BBQ and more free booze as the DJs are once again on deck to carry the party into the night.
Ultimately, Cirque de la Nuit offers the best boat party experience for your money. If you’re looking for a fun day out on the sea, their standard voyages run daily and are fantastic for their value. For an even more fulfilling experience, catch one of their super yacht parties featuring talented from some of the island’s most coveted party promoters: ANTS, Sankeys, Cocoon and more.
