Luxury yacht charters gift you the ocean as your very own playground. These yachts are often brimming with tenders and toys meaning that whether you want to dive down deep, explore, or float above – there is endless fun to be had when sailing the seven seas.
From the smallest sailor to adult only adrenaline, yacht charters invite you out to play – with a wealth of watersport activities that run from dawn until dusk. Take a look at some of the finest wet and wild watersports you can enjoy when the ocean is your own backyard;
Snorkel and Dive
Dive into the blue holes of Belize, snorkel the coral fringes of the Great Barrier Reef, and swim alongside Manta Rays in the Cayman Islands. One of the most beloved water-based activities on a yacht charter has to be the endless opportunities for snorkelling and diving. Many luxury yacht charters will come complete with snorkels and fins, and for those who already have their diving certificates, the chance to explore sunken ships and vertical wall drops will most certainly be on the cards. Some yachts come complete with crew members who are PADI diving instructors which can take your underwater experience to a whole new level.
There is nothing more invigorating than feeling the salt breeze through your hair as you tear up the coastline on a jet-ski. Those who want to feel the thrill of speed and the freedom of the open water will fall in love with sunset sessions on these aqua inspired beasts. Race around the golden coastline of Croatia, explore remote archipelagos in Fiji, or make a dazzling statement arrival at Nikki Beach Club in Ibiza onboard your savvy and sophisticated jet ski.
SUP’s and Kayaks
Morning yoga practise on your stand-up paddle board in the calm waters of the Caribbean, or afternoons gliding alongside great whales against the backdrop of a Canadian wilderness – these are moments you won’t forget. Practically all luxury yacht charters come with an amazing array of toys and SUP’s and kayaks are often in that pack. These are the perfect vessels for early sunrise sessions or witnessing those flaming sunsets over Santorini.
Yacht charter guests travelling with the family will find a whole sleuth of fun when playing with amazing inflatables. Beyond the simplicity of rubber rings, superyacht inflatables are some of the most fun toys. Innovation has come a long way and now alongside the usual banana boats and other towable inflatables that take you careening across the waves; there are also blow up theme parks, slides that go from the top deck into the sea, and even floating swimming pools that can sit on top of the deep blue sea.
Wakeboard and Waterski
Walk on water, feel the surge of salty ocean beneath your feet, and fall in love with beautiful balance as you perfect the art of wakeboarding or waterskiing. Ask a crew member to take out the tender and hitch a ride that takes you skimming across the surface on the ride of your life. When set against a dazzling backdrop like the rainforests of Costa Rica or the rising Pitons of St Lucia, this is an experience that will you spellbound.
Submarines and Seabobs
Sometimes you don’t even need to get your hair wet when diving from the deck of your yacht charter into the depths of the aquamarine sea. The most sophisticated modern toy on the market has to be the submarine. These personal underwater crafts come with just enough space for your captain and several guests and can you down into the inky darkness to discover what mysteries are waiting below. If submarines aren’t quite your style, then the Seabob is another thrilling toy of the 21st century. These underwater Jetstream toys take you whooshing beneath the waves.
From rip-roaring jet skis to sail away inflatables, cool kayaks, and underwater explorer toys, a yacht charter can introduce you to endless fun on the water.
