Your life will always feel slightly empty if you have not marvelled at Earth’s natural gifts. I’ve hardly met anyone who isn’t taken up by the fantastical nature of a water body. However, among all of these, the open sea and the ocean leave an unfading mark like nothing else.
If you are planning to book a yacht rental to explore the ocean, then we have the perfect tips for you. This industry is very commercial today. Hence, there are a large number of companies as well as options to consider. Thus, without the right knowledge, you might miss out on the best sea adventures. Here’s how you can make the most of your yacht rental-
1. Plan your Itinerary
Firstly, it is important to list out every single detail of what you wish to experience on your yacht. If you are planning to sightsee list down all the important landmarks you wish to see. Similarly, if you are a risk seeker, make sure that you list down the water spots you want to experience. Many yachts provide amenities like- jet skiing, fly fishing, kite surfing, diving, wakeboarding, windsurfing, etc.
If you are planning to celebrate on the yacht, then your itinerary will become even more elaborate. Begin, you will have to list down the number of entertainment activities you wish to have. These could include karaoke, your dining meal menu, fireworks, etc.
2. The Most Important Amenities
No matter how hard you try, your yacht adventure will end up costing a good amount of money. Hence, if you are investing so much, you might as well make the best out of the most luxurious amenities. Some important amenities that you really should take care of include-
- Water gear and equipment; water sports.
- Smaller boats like ocean pools or doughnut boats.
- On the board swimming pool.
- Sports court including snooker, table tennis, table-top games, board games, etc.
- Wellness centres include spas, masseuses, yoga corners, hairdressers, etc.
- Professional cabin crew, a great menu, sundecks, and bedrooms to rest.
- For luxury treatment, make sure you get a private chef, a gym, and a salon, and plan an overnight stay.
3. Go Ashore
Many people do not know, but certain hidden beaches are only accessible via sea vessels. Hence, if you hire a yacht, first consult a local coastal expert on hidden spots you can try out. In this case, you should book the yacht for at least 3-4 hours. Moreover, spending one-fourth of your time ashore on a silent beach is perfect for couples and families with young children. You get amazing photos, you can play beach games, and you can even have a beachside barbecue!
4. Fireworks and Dinner
Enjoying a yacht in the nighttime can be the best experience ever. Hence, we recommend that you hire an evening cruise to maximize the beauty of your trip. Firstly, you can gander at the setting sun as it dips into the oceanic horizon. Secondly, when night sets in, you can enjoy a great dinner with your company. And towards the end, you can look up at the open sky, twinkling with stars, without any disturbance. Unless you want to get racy and see some amazing fireworks! Many yachts have this provision, so make sure you check with them.
5. Pick the Perfect Yacht
Another thing that you need to take care of is picking the perfect yacht for your adventure. For instance, if you wish to go on a private yacht, or if you are comfortable with sharing a bigger yacht with other guests or strangers. Most yachts are capable of holding 12 guests in six cabins. Simultaneously, there are mega cruises that can hold as many as 22 guests or even more.
When picking the perfect yacht, you will have to look at other facilities along with the size. For instance, the price of meals, snacks, drinks, etc. Some yachts provide free entertainment within a package. Furthermore, you need to keep in mind the kind of company you are bringing along. If you are on a romantic getaway, try and get a small private yacht.
6. Hire a Helping Hand
If you are with kids, make sure there is ample space in the yacht for them to explore. Also, they will require more entertainment and safety, in case you wish to relax by yourself for a while. Hence, it will be best to get a nanny along on the cruise. Secondly, if you are visiting the elderly, you might want a private yacht. You can inquire in advance and get your yacht rental service to provide an escort for older members of your family. Moreover, many yachts also let you hire a professional photographer.
7. Plan a Party
To be very honest, most people go on yacht trips to really party and celebrate their moments together. Hence, there would be nothing better than a yacht party to give you the ultimate yacht experience. Here are some things to include-
- Include a dancing hall.
- Make sure your yacht has a bar or serves drinks.
- You can have a themed party.
- A DJ and onboard music are a must.
Even a small trip on a yacht can turn into the most magnificent day of your life. No matter where you go and what you experience, sailing on the sea will doubtlessly remain at the top of your life experiences. The above article summarizes various ways in which you can have the most special time on a yacht. If you feel you require further information, we would love to hear from you.
