About 95% of the families that cast off with us have never been on a yacht charter vacation before. They just want something different. Something personal. Something that appeals to all ages. Something that offers quality time with the kids without running all over the place for activities. Something where the parents can enjoy a taste of relaxation, and the kids can be as active or passive as they choose.
No lines to stand in, no schedules, no crowds, no hidden costs. A family yacht charter vacation in offers family quality time in a funsplashed setting where everything you need is already onboard with you - your own personal gourmet chef, watersports toys, movies, games, music, and a crew to teach you whatever sports you want to learn.
Kid-friendly crews: Our family yacht charter crews share a vitality and zest for life that is contagious. The Captain will take the kids on an early morning fishing trip, the chef will lure them into the galley for some cookie making, and they'll create special games and adventures. And of course, there is snorkeling, tubing, waterskiing, kayaking, canonballing off the deck, making sandcastles in the sand, treasure hunts, conch shell blowing contests... all at your own pace.
Teens Too! No ho-hum on our yachts – watersports, kayak regattas, karaoke, barefoot dances, volleyball sunsets, reggae madness, learning to sail. Many of our crews are in their 20s and early 30s - great role models for teens.
Family Meals: Gourmet cuisine still reigns on these yachts, but if your family leans toward simpler fare, our chefs have special kids menus as well as lots of tempting treats. The menu is totally customized to the family’s preferences.
Loads of toys: Snorkel gear, waterskis, tubes, windsurfers, kayaks, wakeboards, fishing gear, sunfloats, noodles, and scuba gear. We can even transform the salons or the cockpits into mini cinemas.
What is the best Caribbean family yacht charter destination?
No question - it's the BVI. Easy to get to. The islands are close together so sailing times are short. Lots to do. Calm seas - a great place for your family to get its feet wet.
Do the kids get bored?
Are you kidding? Swim, beach, make pizzas with the chef, treasure hunts, fishing, hermit crab races - you'll be asking them if you can watch TV so you can have a rest.
Do the crews babysit?
Not usually - they play with the kids and give 110%, but they have too many other responsibilities to be able to babysit as well. We recommend that you bring a nanny if you want some time for just the two of you.
What about safety?
Our yacht charter crews are very safety conscious and will orient you to guidelines that will keep everyone healthy and happy. If you are bringing young children, we will help you select a style of yacht that is child friendly.
