Montauk Disco Cruise
It’s not every day you find yourself on a nice sunset cruise. Every day would be a lot nicer if you did. But we figured we give you the opportunity to sail around the waters of the East End on none other than the Mon Tiki with our friends at VIDE. And as we anticipated any sunset cruise would go, it was quite romantic.
A solid group of 50 of our closest friends hopped on the Largo with canned wine and Goldberg’s wraps in hand. Captain David and crew made everything that much more romantic with the incredibly lighthearted yet firm and slightly threatening safety brief. We had a few stragglers that had to sprint down the dock (gave us a little flashback to that one time we went shark diving after a night at Liars), but what’s a Whalebone event without keeping everyone on their toes.
With everyone on board, we were off. Lake Montauk was showing off as golden hour struck and we cruised around without any real destination. Felt like we were living inside a Grateful Dead song. Or Matt slipped us the mushrooms he’s been experimenting with for Hippie Issue research. Can never tell sometimes.
The night rolled on and Captain David cruised us right on into the Long Island Sound. Best sunset of the year did not RSVP for this event, but luckily it decided to show up.
Wouldn’t be a proper shindig without a disco ball and a bubble machine. Captain David was getting funky along with the crew at VIDE and everyone else who managed to stay on board for the duration of the cruise.
Like anything, all good things must come to an end. And although we bribed Captain David with cases of VIDE to keep the Mon Tiki meandering around the water, he is a captain and with that comes responsibility. Special thanks to all who joined and to Mother Nature for really putting on a show. Big shout out to the whole Mon Tiki crew, VIDE, JUST Water, and Sweet Reason. Probably would’ve been in a rowboat if it wasn’t for them. And dancing in a rowboat is really challenging. Until next time.
