One of the many attractive features of a charter vacation is trying out water toys, inflatables and sports equipment. If you have children or are seeking an active time on board, choosing a charter yacht with toys is an excellent option as you can spend hours having fun and spending time outdoors. There are many options available for charter yachts and many exciting water sports toys to choose from.
Jet Skis and Wave Runners
Jet Skis and wave runners are extremely popular in beach towns and coastal cities as you can ride along the waves and achieve heart racing speeds. Many yachts have jet skis and there is no better experience than dropping anchor near a remote island and jet skiing in your own private slice of paradise. Jet skis are a great choice if you have young children as adults can drive and children can safely enjoy the ride on the back. The main difference between a jet ski and a wave runner is the driving position, as jet skis require the driver to stand up.
There are a vast range of inflatables that can be enjoyed on a yacht charter. One of the most common inflatable options are rafts, donuts and bananas. Some inflatable donuts can even be attached to the back of a yacht tender and charter guests can enjoy being pulled along behind the tender at speed. A very popular item on board a charter yacht is an inflatable slide. These inflatable slides can be attached to the top deck of the yacht when it is safely anchored and guests can spend hours traveling incredibly fast down the inflatable yacht slide and into the water below. These yacht slides often have additional safety features, so they are safe for all onboard.
Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
Another very excellent yacht charter toy is snorkeling equipment. Snorkeling is a wonderful activity as it is suitable for all ages, and you can easily explore all the ocean around you. Many yacht designations have an incredible amount of marine life so jumping in and snorkeling is the best way to explore.
One of the reasons many people choose to snorkel is its accessibility for everyone. To enjoy snorkeling, you do not need any qualifications or take any training. Often a yacht crew will be able to quickly and safely explain how to use the snorkeling and you still are on top of the water. So, it is excellent for beginners. Also, some yachts have scuba diving setups. However, charter guests will need to have completed minimum qualifications and training to use the scuba diving equipment.
Seabobs are powered diving scooters that let guests dive up to 40m below the water’s surface. A fun way to glide around a quiet bay, Seabobs have grown in popularity in recent years as they are easy to use and allow guests to take control.
Stand up Paddleboard and Canoeing
Stand up paddleboarding, and canoeing are not only fun for child and adult guests, but they are also excellent exercises. If you are anchored in a calm bay or wish to explore hidden coves on the shores of your charter destination, a stand-up paddleboard or a canoe is an excellent way to do this. Often these are the most popular ways to travel along beaches, or travel around shores that are too shallow for the yacht to visit.
These are just some of the charter toys available on a yacht. When you are booking a charter, if you are looking for an active one, make sure to ask your charter manager to show you vessels with a broad selection of toys to choose from.
