A private yacht vacation is like no other getaway you’ll ever experience. Along with amazing views, sumptuous cuisine, and lounging in the sun, a luxury yacht charter vacation offers incredible activities for the entire family. There’s so much to do on board, in the water, and on land, in the world’s most breathtaking locations.
In this article, we’ll explore what a typical day is like on a luxury yacht charter vacation. From morning until night, there are so many things to see, do, and explore for endless family fun.
What a Typical Day is Like on Your Private Yacht Charter
- Every morning starts with breakfast prepared by the chef. Before your trip, we’ll find out all of your family’s individual food likes and dislikes, and plan your menu. Everything is catered to your specific tastes and wishes. Want eggs and prosciutto for breakfast? Do the kids enjoy fruit smoothies in the morning? Breakfast is prepared exactly the way you like it, and served whenever you want.
- Sleep in or get an early start to the day—choose what works best for you and your family. With a chef and a flexible schedule, your luxury yacht charter is your very own floating 5-star restaurant.
- During breakfast, the captain will discuss activities—a water activity, hiking, a beach day, reading books, or going ashore. Perhaps there are lovely reefs nearby that are perfect for snorkeling—rest assured that your captain will inform you of all the best spots. The crew will be happy to supply you with everything you need for your underwater excursions, such as fins, snorkels, and masks, and other water toys on board. Or perhaps visit a historic site ashore with your own museum quality private guide, or shop in chic boutiques.
- Whatever afternoon activity you choose, make sure to work up an appetite for lunch! Usually the boat moves, and lunch is in another location. This is a fantastic opportunity to take in more of the breathtaking scenery and dip your toes into the local culture.
Water Toy Fun
- You can have your own catered onboard lunch, or choose to enjoy some local cuisine at a quaint cafe or trattoria just off the coastline. Or, have a picnic created by the crew on a lovely beach. After lunch, take part in more water sports, go on a coastal hike, play games on board, or simply relax on the sun-soaked deck.
- Just before dinner, the entire family can meet up for another perfectly catered meal. Then, perhaps you hear a local band playing on shore, so you get the ship’s tender and go ashore.
No matter where the night takes you, end it by enjoying your favorite movie on a huge screen or perhaps stargazing from the top deck.
Onboard Fun on a Yacht
While a private yacht vacation definitely means relaxation, it doesn’t mean that you can’t take part in onboard activities that are exciting and get your adrenaline pumping. When you’re not sunbathing on the top deck or doing some yoga during sunrise, dance the day away to your favorite music with the wind in your hair, or perhaps have a cooking lesson with your private chef.
Your Professional Chef
Want to celebrate an important occasion or have a fun special theme night on board? Your luxury yacht charter staff is always ready to help you have the best possible experience and create a fun-filled atmosphere. A yacht charter is the perfect place to enjoy private fun on board with music, dancing, or whatever your heart desires.
Love food? You don’t need a party as an excuse to get a culinary lesson from the professional chef—for yourself, you and your spouse, or even the entire family. Want to maintain your exercise regime while on vacation? Get your workout using the yacht’s gym or gym equipment, depending on the yacht chosen, or enjoy a vigorous hike ashore in lovely surroundings.
Daily Excursions on a Luxury Yacht Charter
What to Do on Land
One of the best things about a yacht charter is that you can visit multiple coastline destinations. Island hopping and spending time in coastal mainland towns and villages give you the opportunity to experience beautiful sights, foods, and pristine beaches. You can spend hours shopping for authentic souvenirs, sampling local delicacies, exploring local history, and experiencing a new, unique culture. There are so many things to see and do.
Every stop on your yacht vacation offers a chance to visit a shop or venue, or simply sprawl out on a secluded beach to work on your tan. Enjoy bustling nightlife as you dance the night away to local music at a club, explore parks and hiking trails, or those in the know can hunt for some geocaches on land to add to their finds.
Water Activities on a Luxury Yacht Charter
There are a plethora of exciting activities to do in the water—there’s something for everyone. You can get to know the magical world beneath the sea by snorkeling, or just float around your yacht on an inner tube. Whatever water activity you and your family choose, your private yacht may have all the equipment and water toys you’ll need, or the crew might be able to rent certain toys to have on board for your charter. Some yachts have paddle boards, jet skis, sea bobs, tow toys, water skis, floating islands, and kayaks.
Scuba Diving in the Caribbean
Put on some scuba gear and admire the coral underneath the bright blue sea, or grab some noodles and have some fun with the kids. Inflatable toys and more can be pulled by the yacht’s tender. Whether you are vacationing with a family or as a couple, there’s no shortage of water fun you can have.
There are endless possibilities to consider when booking your luxury yacht charter vacation.
