Organising a Hen Party with 4charter
The hen party is one of the most important days in a bride to be’s life, giving her a chance to spend some quality time with her closest friends before tying the knot and settling into married life. Yet while many hens choose to stick to the standard format of a pampering day followed by a night on the tiles, there is a growing trend for seeking out adventurous and unique party ideas in order to truly make their “last day of freedom” memorable and to strengthen the bond of friendship amongst the group.
Hen Parties on Alice
Should you wish to do something similar, we urge you to consider Alice as the ideal venue for your hen event. Sailing on the Solent gives you the chance to have both an enjoyable and informative experience, learning a new skill or brushing up on existing techniques whilst enjoying spending time with friends – and we can guarantee that Alice is one of the safest chartered yachts on the Solent upon which to do this.
No matter what kind of day on the sea you are looking for, we can tailor a package to take in the places and activities you wish to include as well as ensuring you are able to stick to your budget. Simply get in touch with your hen party ideas, and we will do our best to give you the best day out imaginable!
Bespoke Hen Party Itinerary
Your weekend will start at Gun Wharf Quays in Portsmouth, where Alice is moored in the shadow of famous landmark the Spinnaker Tower. Friday evening will involve a meal on board followed by a night of VIP partying at Tiger Tiger – something 4charter can offer exclusively with the cost included in the Hen Party Package.
Saturday starts with a trip to the top of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, allowing your group to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view over Portsmouth towards Southampton in one direction and Gosport in the other, with a group photo to commemorate the event. Following this, everyone will pile on to Alice to enjoy a gentle cruise to Cowes, with the more adventurous hens able to partake in a little high speed action on our 50mph RIB.
Upon arrival in Cowes, you will moor in the harbour and enjoy a few hours exploring the picturesque town before returning to Alice for a trip up the Medina – during which time the Bride to Be will walk the plank for an added piece of amusement! You will then convene in the Folly for a night of drinking and dancing on the tables, before returning to Alice for the night to enjoy your own music through our on-board iPhone connection.
Finally, Sunday will dawn with breakfast and a gentle cruise down the Medina and back towards Portsmouth, with the approach to Gun Wharf Quays offering beautiful views to soothe those pesky hangovers. Arriving back in Portsmouth at around 2pm, a final drink or late lunch in Gun Wharf Quays would be the ideal way to round off a truly wonderful weekend.
Hen events can be tricky to plan if your friendship group tends to differ in taste, but we can promise that our parties always prove popular with even the most unwilling sailors. With a plethora of hen themed activities on board and lots of variation to suit you, booking your hen party with Alice will certainly leave you with fond memories which will last a lifetime.
