For many of us, a family vacation is an annual tradition that gives both old and young a chance to unplug and spend time together. You’ve probably already done the amusement park tour, maybe booked a coastal getaway, or visited some of the country’s beautiful national parks on vacations past. These are awesome destinations you should experience, but what about thinking outside the box for the next family vacation by setting sail on a family yacht charter?
A family yacht charter allows you to bring your whole family along on an adventure that they won’t soon forget— all while staying within the realm of budgets of other vacation destinations. So if you're considering taking your family on a yacht trip this summer but aren’t sure if it’s for you, here are some reasons why it's worth every bit of the investment:
What better place to bond with your family than in beautiful waters around the world? With all the demands of work, school, and home life, an ocean escape can do your soul some good. You’ll soak in one of a kind landmarks together in places you’d only dream of road tripping to. Our brokers have relationships with yacht crews around the world, so you can decide where you’ll go on your family yacht charter. Caribbean adventures are popular, as well as trips to the Mediterranean, Bahamas, Fiji / South Pacific, Thailand, and several Coastal US cities.
While most of your time will be spent out on the water, you have the option to dock at popular land destinations along the journey. Hopping on a chartered yacht and navigating through amazing scenery is one of the best, most unique ways to reconnect with your kids and spend quality time together.
Going places with family can play an important part in growing up and learning how to live in society with individuals from other cultures, backgrounds, and varying points of view. When you charter a yacht, the whole family will have the chance to experience the world in a new light.
Vacations at sea provide an opportunity for people of all ages to spend time away from school and work to learn about life, relationships, and themselves. Whether it’s learning how sail boats steer on the winds, or even listening to the history of the surrounding area, there are awesome lessons and knowledge to take away from a trip at sea. You may even take lessons in scuba diving, cooking, or water skiing!
Families that carve out a chunk of time for these learning experiences often report stronger, lasting bonds between family members resulting from their amazing time spent together at sea. They say the magic happens outside of your comfort zone, and this holds true when stepping aboard a crewed yacht charter for families!
If you have young ones, you know how challenging it can be to keep everyone happy (and occupied) on a trip. Planning out activities and meals, buying exhibition tickets, and booking transportation on traditional family vacations is a daunting feat that requires tons of forethought.
Yacht charters allow parents freedom to chose the itinerary for the trip, and our brokers will help you every step of the way. You’ll be able to chose from action-packed activities, indulge in meals prepared by our on-site cooks, and the best part? Once you’re on the yacht, you don’t have to worry about logistics.
This lets you focus on each other instead of whether hotel reservations went through or the food at the local restaurants is any good. As you sail away from the dock and see your destination come into view, you’ll be overcome with the thrill of exploring new places while leaving the stresses of daily life behind. When you’re on a yacht chartered by Envy, we do the research for you so you can maximize family fun.
When you charter a yacht, you’re at the helm of what you want to do, and when you want to do it. Yes, there’s a general itinerary to follow, but if you’re feeling spontaneous, you can capitalize on it by partaking in new adventures! Each yacht comes with its own equipment but typically includes snorkel gear, water skis, kayaks, paddle boards, float mats, and fishing gear. Onshore activities can include tennis, spa treatments, hiking, and golf. It’s up to you what you want to do!
Depending on your budget and desired style of transit, you can chose from sailboats, catamarans, motor yachts, and mega yachts. This plays a factor when you’re considering whether you’d like to invite the extended family or close friends to join in on the fun!
Of course, memories will also be made around the dining table. Our chefs can navigate dietary restrictions and prepare child-friendly dishes for the younger guests in the group. When all is said and done, we want you to do the things you want, eat yummy food, and experience the sea the way you want to! That’s the beauty of custom-planned yacht charters.
If you’re looking for a way to reconnect with one another and partake in amazing activities in beautiful places, chartering a yacht is an excellent choice.
