What's included with a luxury yacht charter?

A big part of the enjoyment aboard a luxury yacht charter involves fun in the sun with "water toys." These can include an endless array of playthings, gadgets, gizmos and equipment that enhances your on-the-water recreational experience.

A big part of the enjoyment aboard a luxury yacht charter involves fun in the sun.

Each yacht carries a different array of water sports equipment. Most are equipped for various levels of on the water activities. While many can be used by children, these toys are not just kids' stuff. Your yacht could offer personal watercraft to allow you to race along waters at full throttle. There are also wakeboards, windsurfers, paddle boards and kayaks that encourage you to cruise at a gentler pace.

The breadth of imagination and innovation represented in yacht charter toys can be stunning. You could harness ocean breezes with a kiteboard, or fly over the waters James Bond-style with a personal jetpack. Some yachts come equipped with inflatable waterslides from the top decks, or zip lines that serve up an aerial thrill before splashing down into warm waters.

A yacht charter is an ideal opportunity for some of the most amazing diving experiences. You can explore beautiful reefs while snorkeling or scuba diving.

Of course, a yacht charter is an ideal opportunity for some of the most amazing diving and snorkeling experiences. Some yachts offer SCUBA instruction or certification from a specially trained crew member. However, not all private yachts are equipped or manned to offer SCUBA diving from the yacht in which case rendezvous diving is arranged with a local diver operator. If SCUBA diving is an important fact during your trip, you should inquire in advance if the yacht offers dive instruction and/or diving from the yacht.

The guests' safety is always a factor. In certain ports wave runners and other personal watercraft (PWC's) may have restrictions (in some regions they are banned), which require a brief operators course before independent use is permitted.
