With Mother Nature providing us with a sunny start to the summer season, there's no reason not to go out and make the most of it. And if you're looking for ideas on how to do so, you can rent floating "party donuts" in Laval this summer, which come equipped with a BBQ. This activity is sure to brighten up anyone's day.
Top Dopico's BBQ Donut says it'll be ready to open up again as of June 10, but that only its Laval location will be open for inspection in order to "better comply with Health Canada's guidelines."
The capacity of the tubes has also been reduced to six people in order to comply with government recommendations and the boats will be disinfected before and after each departure.
Whether it's to celebrate the birthday of a special person or to spend a romantic afternoon at sunset, several packages designed to meet your expectations are available.
Tube rentals start at $300 for three hours, equivalent to $50 per person at full capacity, and include a cooler full of ice placed in the middle of the "donut."
Boats equipped with a BBQ grill are available for $325 for three hours and $525 for six hours.
You have the choice to bring your own food to take advantage of the barbecue in the middle.
Or to live like royalty for a few hours by paying for the services of a chef who will take care of cooking you good food that day.
Vegetable skewers, chicken and beef, beef ribs and sausages, chicken and beef steak or salmon and lobster tail; you'll have the freedom to select an option adapted to your taste when you make your reservation — in exchange for an extra charge on your bill.
As for departures, you and your friends have the option of taking off between 12 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. or 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. for three-hour expeditions or 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. for full-day trips.
