More than ever, we are realising the social importance of sharing experiences and memories with those closest to us in order to maintain strong relationships, particularly during occasions such as holidays. A yacht charter combines all the elements that allows guests to successfully spend time reconnecting and re-establishing a strong relationship with those closest to them:
Activities at your fingertips
Carefully selecting a holiday with experiences and activities that can be enjoyed by everyone is a powerful way to for family and friends to reconnect after such a long time apart. No other holiday provides such a comprehensive and all-inclusive range of activities and qualified instructors ready for the immediate use of the guests. The majority of charter yachts will have a wide variety of water sports equipment on board, ranging from jet skis, wakeboards, flyboards, water skis, wave runners to even submersibles on larger yachts. This opens up the potential of a winter holiday as guests can learn new skills as well as become qualified in different water sports. But the options aren’t limited to the sea as a yacht charter offers the flexibility to partake in all land based activities wherever your itinerary goes. This could be golfing, Rum tasting, horse riding or relaxing during a spa day. This diversity ensures that everyone on a yacht charter holiday will be able to find something they enjoy, resulting in quality time spent making memories with family and friends.
Fishing the best locations
For most charter destinations around the world, sport fishing is a popular and highly accessible activity on a yacht charter. Locations such as Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, said to be the ‘Marlin Capital of the World’, offer year-round exhilarating experiences.
Fishing could be the sole purpose of your trip, or organised as a day excursion from the yacht or tender, but it offers guests an enjoyable way to reunite. By accommodating all levels of experience and equipped for all forms of fishing, a yacht charter fishing trip can bring all guests together whether it is fly fishing for salmon in Alaska, or bone fishing in the flats of The Bahamas.
In most scenarios, a yacht charter benefits guests by allowing multiple destinations to be visited within the space of a week without the stress of packing, transferring and checking in to different accommodation. By remaining in one luxury yacht, more focus can be spend on catching up and engaging with those around you, all the while embracing different cities and sights along the itinerary. Seamless travel can be made so that different cultures, cuisines and even countries can be explored. With a captain and crew running the yacht, overnight cruises allow guests to awake in new destinations and mean the maximum time can be spent in each location enjoying the yacht and each other’s company. This flexibility a yacht charter holiday brings is ideally suited to island hopping destinations such as the Caribbean, The Bahamas and the Maldives, but is equally advantageous for cruising along revered coastlines such as the Pacific Coast of Mexico, Costa Rica or California, taking in the stunning sights with friends and family from an unbeatable vantage point.
The autonomy gained from a yacht charter holiday allows for some of the most remote and untouched locations to be access around the world. After a year of travel restrictions and lockdowns, an urge to discover new destinations and make lasting memories with missed loved ones will likely be at the forefront of many people’s agenda when considering a holiday this summer. Destinations such as Alaska, the USVIs and the Maldives are all home to spectacular National parks and bioreserves that are best (and sometimes only) accessed by yacht. Taking a guide and visiting these acclaimed destinations can offer an alternative summer holiday that will be sure to spark interest amongst friends and family looking for new experiences this summer. A yacht charter successfully combines a luxury living environment, unparalleled autonomy, and professional crew service, resulting in extended freedom to explore all and any destinations the charterer seeks. The stringent Covid-19 safety protocols for yacht charter holidays ensures that the yacht provides an isolated bubble for guests to reunite and travel with minimal risk. When visiting remote and untouched locations, a yacht charter is the most accommodating method to reconnect with friends and family, while leaving the minimum footprint on the environments visited.
