Madix’s ex Tom Sandoval also took part in the trip to Northern California. He shared several pictures and videos of himself enjoying a glass of wine while overlooking San Francisco from the boat – including the Golden Gate Bridge.

“#sanfrancisco #imonaboat,” he captioned the Instagram post.

As for Madix and Wai, this trip marks their latest adventure together after visiting one of Chicago’s most popular tourist attractions, “The Bean,” a large reflective metal art installation in Millennium Park last month.

The pair were first romantically linked back in April, when they were seen kissing and holding hands at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in California. At that time, a little over a month had passed since Madix found out about her long-term boyfriend Tom Sandoval’s months-long secret affair with her best friend and VPR actress Raquel Leviss. Madix and Wai reportedly met at a mutual friend’s wedding in Mexico in March.

After the pair’s PDA-filled Coachella outing, an insider told PEOPLE that Madix didn’t want to jump into anything “serious” and was just “having fun” with Wai. However, just a month later, a source revealed to PEOPLE that things are already getting serious between the two.

“Ariana has been telling people in her circle that she’s falling for him,” the source said. “They met in Mexico at a mutual friend’s wedding, not long after Scandoval ended their relationship. At first it seemed like just a fling, but they have a special bond. Even though he lives in New York, they made it work.”

“It’s happening faster than she thought, but he’s treating her well, they’re having fun, and she’s happy to move on to this next chapter with such an amazing guy,” the source added.

In June, Wai treated Madix to a romantic “date night” with a candlelight concert at Orchard Quarter to celebrate her birthday. He also paid tribute to her with a sweet post on Instagram, writing: “Happy birthday to the kindest and most generous woman I know @arianamadix.”

Although Madix has kept the details of her romance with Wai mostly under wraps, she offered some insight into their relationship while appearing on Today in May.

“You know, I’m enjoying it and I would say I’m very happy right now,” she told host Hoda Kotb.

She also shared the story of how she met Wai just days after her split from Sandoval. “I met him at a wedding ten days after all this,” she recalled. “And I didn’t go into it thinking about anything in any way, and I just took things very, very slowly and really enjoyed it.”
