It’s time to set sail and see the world, and you couldn’t be more excited. But, you have some questions, too. Will you be bored onboard? Will you feel trapped? How will you spend your days at sea?

Fortunately for you, chartering a yacht means doing whatever you want – and that includes having a range of activities to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

Whether onboard, in the water or on land, read below for just some of the activities you can take advantage of during your private charter at sea.

Onboard Activities

While being on a yacht is synonymous with relaxation, that doesn’t mean there aren’t things you can do onboard to get your adrenaline pumping. If you’re on a larger yacht, head to your onboard gym, throw a cocktail party, or dance the day (or night) away to your favorite tunes on your beach club. Craving something hands on and creative? Get a cooking lesson from the chef, or ask your charter crew to give you a mixology lesson. If relaxation is what you seek, spend a day lounging on the sundeck, pair your sunrises with mimosas, get a massage from the onboard masseuse, or take advantage of the sauna, if your yacht has one. Parties are also all the rage on a yacht. Depending on your interests, these can range from a quaint dinner party overflowing with wine, or an all-night bash with music, dancing, strong drinks and more.

Water Activities

We doubt you’d be on a yacht if you weren’t already a big fan of the water, so take advantage of your time onboard and get to know the world beneath the sea. All yachts come with water toys, and most even have fast or stylish tenders, tubes, kayaks, jet skis, paddle boards and more. Grab a noodle and float around the boat, or throw on a snorkel and get a peek at the beautiful coral right below you. If you really want to explore, put on your scuba gear and go for a dive. Kids onboard can put on their floaties, grab a wakeboard, sit in an inner tube, or blow up inflatable slides and slide into the deep blue sea. The actual water toys onboard will differ from yacht to yacht, but across the board, one thing’s for sure: there’s always something for everyone.

Land Activities

One of the main benefits of yacht charters is how it lets you see the world – especially by island-hopping. And even when you anchor your yacht and step off at your destination, there’s plenty to do onshore for you to truly experience it. From lying on the sand and simply moving your relaxation onshore, to shopping, dining or, if you’re in the right spot, dancing the night away at world-renowned clubs, your time on land won’t be in vain. Go see the destination’s famous sites, sign up for a guided tour, or if you’re more adventurous, go off-roading, take a hike, dive off cliffs, explore caves or see the island as you cruise through it on your bike. Whatever you choose, your time on land always goes by way too quickly, so be sure to make the best of it as soon as you can.
