Chartering a yacht is a bucket list travel experience for sure – and now more than ever it’s a safe way for friends and families to explore together.
We work with yacht charter operations and catamaran sailing outfitters in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and South Pacific – and have been insanely impressed with their covid precautions, adaptations and enthusiasm for 2021.
Have you ever considered a sailing vacation for your family? It’s an ideal trip for multiple families or larger groups and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate a milestone birthday or anniversary!
And pricing is less than you might think. A catamaran in the British Virgin Islands that sleeps 8 people (so ideal for 2 families of 4), fully crewed (captain and hostess) including all meals, drinks, water toys, port fees, housekeeping, etc is around $15,000 per family for 7 nights
So is a sailing vacation right for your family? If you answer yes to the questions below – contact us ASAP to start planning a sailing vacation for your family in 2021!
Does your family love the water?
This should be obvious – do you love the water? Are you ready to spend a week snorkeling, swimming, paddle boarding, and just enjoying the warm ocean water?
Are you kids all confident swimmers?
While of course safety precautions are abundant, it’s best to plan a family sailing vacation once all kids are confident swimmers. This will ensure you can relax and enjoy your time together without worrying about a kiddo going overboard.
Is your family active?
Many families come to sailing after several land and resort based beach vacations. Active families with energetic kids tend to outgrow more traditional resort vacations -and love all the adventure and activity options inherent in a sailing vacation.
