  • Beaches – Great for wading, swimming, beach combing, picnics, sand sports and long walks.
  • Underwater photography – Many charter yachts have underwater cameras to record the fun. Some also have underwater video cameras and drones.
  • Inflatables & towable toys – Most yachts will carry something like a Banana, Big Mable, Super Mable, Inflatable Slide, or an Inflatable Island which are fun for all ages.
  • Jetskis, Wake boarding & Water skiing – Especially popular for the energetic older kids and adults.
  • Underwater scooters – SeaBobs and other brands offer new ways to explore beneath the surface.
  • Stand up paddle boarding – SUPs provide quiet recreation.
  • Kayaking – A fun way to noodle around or head to the beach.
  • Fishing – Most yacht charter boats carry light fishing gear on board. If you’re looking for serious, deep-sea fishing; there’s a charter for that as well.
