Ocean City might not have any bars or sell alcohol. But it will soon have a boat with a bar on it.
Pau Hana, a company chartering tiki bar boat tours, is launching out of Ocean City this summer — providing one of the state’s few dry towns with a chance to party on the water. Tours launch in May, offering two-hour trips on a tiki bar-topped barge for up to six guests.
Prices range from $325 for the “But First, We Do Coffee on the Bay” tour, a morning excursion that is open to all ages, to $1,000 for the “Night in Venice Charter,” which allows guests to take part in Ocean City’s famous boat parade. Tours launch from Ocean City Fishing Center.
The company’s boats are certified by the United States Coast Guard. The trips are BYOB and guests can bring their own snacks — though the company will arrange snacks and meals for an additional cost. As Ocean City is a dry town, not even allowing BYOB restaurants, alcohol beverages cannot be opened or consumed until the boat has left the dock, according to the company’s website.
The tours include music, but guests are welcome to bring their own if they would prefer to set the playlist.
Pau Hana founders Brian and Jennifer Toner spent years cruising around the United States, Bahamas and Caribbean on their boats — exploring hundreds of beach bars and islands in their travels — before deciding to launch out of South Jersey. The name translates to “finished work” in Hawaiian, meaning leaving work early on Friday and starting the weekend.
“We invite you to join us on our never-ending quest for the perfect sunset while surrounding yourselves with close friends, a cold drink and great tunes,” the Pau Hana website says.

Now THIS is cool....and is something that is now officially on my bucket list for this Summer.
Introducing Cruisin' Tikis....basically a BYOB booze cruise company but the boat is one big TIKI BAR!!!
Cruisin' Tiki will provide ice and cups. Just bring your drink of choice!
Told you it was cool.
All of their cruises are two hours long and there are a few different options to choose from. You can go on a Cruisin' n Brunchin' Cruise ($400), a Tiki Fun Cruise ($400), or a 1.5-hour Sunset Cruise ($350).
You can make your reservations on their website and they start cruising on Friday, June 12th. The float-able Tiki Bar can fit up to six people!
You can also purchase a gift card that can be redeemed on any future cruise! Could make for a nice gift.
If you need an extra person...I am always willing to fill an empty spot. You know if you NEED someone. (I can carry the cooler of booze no problem)
So make your reservations now and maybe bring hula skirts to fit in with the theme.
Thanks to Andy Chase on 105.7 The Hawk for this awesome tip.

Investing during life’s stages
Once the weather turns warm, a tiki-themed barge with barstool seating, a straw roof and an open-air layout will set sail from Ocean City, New Jersey.
The Pau Hana Tiki Boat Tours begin in May, offering boat rides, beginning at two-hours long, for up to six guests.

Guests can bring their own drinks aboard for the two-hour cruise on the bay.
Guests will have the option to play their own music and bring their own food and beverages. Later on, catering packages with local food partners will be available, too.
Ocean City is a dry town – the city has prohibited alcohol sales since it was founded in 1879 and doesn't even allow BYO restaurants – but city rules don't apply on the water. Guests can consume alcoholic beverages while on board, so long as they have a valid ID.
"Alcoholic beverages may not be opened or consumed until the boat has left the dock. You cannot drink at dock, on the piers or on your way to and from your car," states the FAQ page.
Pau Hana Tiki Boat Tours will be open daily and will welcome guests who want to spend a day on the bay and those looking to host small celebrations for birthdays, bachelor or bachelorette parties, proposals, engagements and graduations
Cruise packages start at $325 (plus tip for the boat's captain) for a two-hour long morning cruise. There are also four-hour boat trips for $650 and the tiki barge can be reserved for $1,000 to watch Ocean City's annual Night in Venice boat parade on July 24. More information on the cruises and booking is available online.
"We are thrilled to bring this concept to Ocean City. As locals who have spent many years on the waters of the Jersey Shore, we wanted to bring a tropical energy and a new way for people to experience the beauty of the bay," said owner and operators Brian and Jennifer Toner. "Especially after this challenging year when we have been separated, Pau Hana is the perfect escape for small groups looking to celebrate life’s precious moments in a distanced, outdoor setting that’s unlike any other in the region."
