Activities on a Chartered Yacht VacationJune 8, 2017
The single greatest thing about a chartered yacht vacation is that no two trips are ever the same. It is easy to customize your boating vacation based on relaxation style, travel preference and mood.
Yacht vacations can be tailored to entertain families (even small children), newlyweds, large groups and small groups. Chartered yacht vacations are great for those looking to relax and disconnect also ideal for adventure-seekers. Travel by sea is a great way to really experience culture and take in the natural surroundings that make so many cities along the sea special.

Get a Tan
While on the open sea the only thing standing in your way of the sunshine is the welcomed reprieve of shade from the clouds. Lounge on the “bimbo pad” and soak up some sunshine – this is your vacation after all.
Engage in Your Favorite Hobby
Do you read, write, paint, draw or take pictures at home? We would never want you to leave your hobbies behind. The scenery from a yacht charter is ideal for all of these hobbies so come equip to spend some time doing the things you enjoy the most.
We always recommend you make it a habit to be on deck for either sunrise or sunset. Depending on your location in the world you may be able to watch both all from the same unobstructed view. Now, how many people can say they’ve enjoyed that?
Activities for Children
A boat is definitely not a boring place for children. As a new place to explore, there is enough to keep them busy from day to night.
- Give them a proper captain’s training. Ask your captain if your little guy or girl can help start the motor, steer, blow the horn or put the boat into gear. Be sure to show your captain some extra love when the trip is over and it’s time to dish out gratuities.
- Teach them to tie knots. Being able to tie a knot is a necessity on the water. Bring some string and an instruction manual and see how many you can master during your trip.
- Put them on “weather duty.” Bring a map, GPS and a weather kit and let your little one navigate and prepare for the weather. He or she can alert you if a storm is coming and also feel good about having such an important role.
- Let them listen to the radio traffic. If the radio traffic is in their native language let them listen along and plot the coordinates of each vessel. Not only is this a learning experience, but it will also keep children busy for most parts of the day.
