I am counting down the days until the warm weather arrives because then life changes here in South Jersey.

Snow, potholes and winter jackets transform into bathing suits, beaches and booze!

One of my personal favorite Summertime activities is to indulge in a booze cruise. You've got water. You've got alcohol. You've got your friends. There really isn't a downside.

So here are all of the booze cruises available in South Jersey that you and your friends can enjoy this Summer.

Black Pearl Pirate Tours 

100 Northwest Avenue, Beach Haven

(609) 978-9951

There are a few different options with this company: Interactive Pirate Excursion, Sunset Boat Cruise or you can be bougie and charter your own private cruise.. You can also buy gift certificates for your friends or family who love to cruise on the waves.

Atlantic City Cruises

800 North New Hampshire Ave., Atlantic City

(609) 347-7600

Take a break at the casinos and head to the coast of Atlantic City! This company offers quite a few options. You can take a Morning Skyline cruise, go Dolphin Watching, enjoy an Afternoon Delight cruise, or my personal favorite, the Happy Hour Cruise which features an open bar.

Pirate Voyages 

232 Bay Avenue, Ocean City

(609) 398-7555

Arghhh. This one doesn't seem to be a Booze Cruise per say, but it seems too cool to leave out. Hop aboard the Sea Dragon and get ready to become a full-blown pirate. Kids will get their faces painted before even getting on board!

Miss Avalon 

14th & Ocean Drive, Avalon

(609) 967-7455

Miss Avalon offerings fishing charters, boat rides and party cruises. However, something to keep in mind is that they are BYOB with both food and drinks. You get to bring exactly what you like and enjoy the sea.

Hit The Surf Charters

Avalon Marine Center (Pier A, Slip 4)

(609) 675-5020

Captain Barry has spent the last 20 years out on the waters around Stone Harbor, and now he is ready for you to join. There are quite a few different fishing options: Kids Fishing Charter, Back Bay Fishing Charter and Back Bay Striper Fishing Charter.

But for you party folk, you will probably prefer the Sunset & Booze Cruise.

Big Blue Sightseer

(609) 522-2919

This company will take you on an enchanting 3-hour tour and it has been a staple Wildwood tradition for over 60 years. There are three different cruises to choose from but you have to call to for specific prices and scheduling.
