Being a Los Angeles Magician means that you’ll occasionally be asked to perform on boats. From grad parties and bar mitzvahs to anniversary parties and wedding receptions, yachts are a popular party option. But finding the right entertainment for parties at sea can be a problem.
Why Magic is a Great Entertainment Option for Yacht Parties:
Party hosts are looking for entertainment that won’t take up precious space on the boat, and that will keep all of their guests, regardless of age, entertained during the event. Magicians are a terrific yacht entertainment option for three major reasons:
1. Space is a premium on any yacht, and strolling magic won’t take up any additional space.
2. Strolling magic won’t interfere with your other entertainment. Your DJ can play as loudly as you’d like.
3. A formal close-up show can add variety to the trip, and create incredible memories and festive atmosphere that lasts all evening.
One Problem with Hiring Yacht Entertainment
If your trip takes 4 hours, many magicians will ask that you pay them for the full 4 hours… regardless of how long you’d like them to perform. Frankly, this makes sense. Think about it: the magician is out at sea and can’t book another show that night, costing him revenue.
Still, I suggest that you ask for a discount during the hours they are not performing. A discount is fair to you (you’re not paying top dollar for downtime), and fair to them (they deserve to be compensated for their time). It’s a win-win!
See you at sea!
