For a unique experience that combines island vibes with mountain views, consider booking one of the Aqua Tiki party boats for an afternoon on the lake.

Enjoy personalized attention with your own boat captain aboard the Tiki 1, Tiki 2, or the Tiki 3. Depart from Hiawassee and spend 2 hours (or more) cruising around Lake Chatuge on a floating tiki bar!

The boat vibe is perfect for active families with swimming kids or for a group of adults who want to relax and socialize with drinks.
