First party boat in Kota Kinabalu

Thanks to our frontliners and the collective effort of Malaysians, the pandemic has simmered down to a manageable level in our country. And we can now enjoy the fruits of our MCO labour by going out again and travelling to other states, while still abiding by social distancing measures, of course.

Many of us are itching to satisfy our travel bug, spend time outdoors, and just have fun with our loved ones. Lucky for us, a tour company in Kota Kinabalu is here to fulfill all our enjoyment needs with their first-ever party boat.

Sunbear Travel & Tours just introduced their spanking new party boat equipped with a number of extras that will guarantee a fun day out at sea with your homies.

The sight of the party boat is eye-catching on its own, with its fresh white paint and double-storeyed layout, and made all the more inviting with its giant slide attached to the top floor which lets you slide straight into the ocean. This feature is definitely something thrill-seekers who’ve been cooped up at home will look forward to.

For those who prefer taking it easy, you can lounge and sunbathe on their suspended hammock that inches out to the sea or laze on the float. Just imagine how tranquil it’ll be to take a nap or read a book with the sky above and the ocean below you.

The boat rides will set sail at 9AM for around 5 hours, and head to 5 islands in Sabah’s famous Tunku Abdul Rahman Park. This means that you can snorkel and kayak whenever the boat is docked.

Day out at sea on a fun party boat

Whether you’re travelling with a group of friends or with your family, spending the day on a party boat is definitely an experience that not many of us have tried in Malaysia.

And once you’ve had your fair share of the sea, you can take your travels to the mountains next and try out a variety of local Sabahan dishes while you’re at it!
