Super yacht charter activities when you rent

This article runs through some of the superyacht charter activities commonly available to you and your guests when you rent a superyacht and explains what to expect when you charter a luxury yacht.

Many people have compared a super yacht charter vacation as similar to staying at an very exclusive villa resort. Dedicated crew will work tirelessly to meet the needs of guests when sailing around some of the world's most exotic locations. Unlike a resort you'll be renting a luxurious yacht probably with a few family or friends. There are no crowds to worry about, no waiting for meals and plenty of different activities to enjoy and best of all you are not static in one place.

When you rent a super yacht charter you can expect to move around from spot to spot and anchor in pristine bays and secluded beaches, while having the full attention of the crew. There will be lots of time to sunbathe on deck, catching the rays and chilling out. Most yachts have a spacious sun deck where you can sprawl out on loungers. Remember to take plenty of lotion and those all-important shades.

Make the most of cocktail hour to enjoy appetizers and a selective range of drinks, a great way to socialize and get to know fellow passengers. If you've got a special occasion coming up, let the captain know. Super yacht rentals are ideal for parties, maybe for a birthday, anniversary, engagement or even a wedding. There's always the option to have a themed party hosted by the crew which might include a scavenger hunt on a remote island, wow.

How about taking an onboard cookery class from your very own onboard chef? Culinary specialists can offer a unique insight into the fine art of cooking especially seafood dishes, pastries and local cuisine. Some super charter yachts have an onboard movie library which is the perfect way to wind down watching a movie beneath the stars. Try computer gaming and keeping fit in a well-equipped gym, what more could you ask for?

Water sport enthusiasts will love a super yacht charter as it ticks all the right boxes. Most vessels have an assortment of water sport equipment on board such as snorkeling gear and scuba diving wet suits. There's always a professional onboard to show you how to use the equipment safely while making sure you also have a great time. Try snorkeling off barrier reefs, coral beds and in caves to see the amazing array of marine life. Don't forget your underwater camera when scuba diving. It's the most relaxing way to discover sea beds and what lies underneath the waves.

For something a little different how about wake boarding? For adrenalin junkies, wake boarding enthusiasts can be pulled behind a powerful super yacht enjoying the wind in their faces and the spray of the ocean. Tubing is another activity which is a little less demanding and great for kids. There's plenty of splashing water, humps, bumps and spills. After so much fun during the day, take a leisurely dip in an onboard luxury Jacuzzi while sipping your favorite cocktail or a glass of ice cold champagne.

One of the many advantages of chartering a super yacht is that as you rent the boat you can decide what to do from one day to the next. For the ultimate in relaxation, most super yacht charter vessels also have spa and sauna facilities on board. Why not pamper yourself before you go ashore? Island hopping is what super yacht charter is all about. You'll have the opportunity to go shopping, dining while exploring exciting towns and quaint villages.
