Luxury yacht holidays - best activities for groups.

Fun things to do as groups on a yacht holiday

'There’s nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as messing about in boats,' Rat famously declared to Toad in the treasured children’s book Wind in the Willows. We couldn’t agree more, except perhaps suggest substituting the ‘boats’ for ‘superyachts’, for once you have experienced the glorious fun of a luxury yacht charter, it is hard to find an activity that even comes close.

Of course, some people turn to yachts for relaxation and solitude, but we believe that chartering is a pleasure that is only multiplied when shared with groups of friends and family on a yacht holiday. Whether you are a group of water lovers with a penchant for high-speed sports, you enjoy entertaining friends and family or you are keen to explore faraway lands, there’s a yacht charter experience that can be tailored to your every whim.

There’s no need to step ashore when you’re looking for fun group activities to partake in during a yacht charter. Today’s luxury yachts are bursting with facilities and equipment dedicated to providing you with enjoyment all day long.

Try a team sport

Most superyachts are chock-full of sporting equipment that is waiting for you to get stuck into some friendly competition, and if you need to make up the numbers then the yacht’s crew tend to be pretty handy sportspeople. A growing number of luxury yachts are being built with specialist sporting facilities to keep the whole family entertained during a charter.

Relax in the beach club

Beach clubs have become one of the most popular spots on a superyacht, especially when their design allows for a great connection between the interior space and the surrounding water. They provide a fantastic base for a morning of activities out on the water, can create a great setting for reviving workouts or indulgent wellness treatments, and some larger superyachts now provide full lounge set-ups in their beach clubs that are open at the waterline on three sides.

Of course, being on and in the water is one of the best ways to have fun with a group on a yacht charter. Your captain will take you to secret anchorages that are yours alone to enjoy, and the crew members will be keen to show off the full range of watertoys on board – even filming your adventures to create a personalised charter movie. Take the plunge and make some memories that will last a lifetime.

Inflatable waterpark

Think you have what it takes to beat your friends in a challenge of skill, balance and speed? Then get yourself down to the inflatable waterpark and prepare to get wild (and possibly wet) with an Olympics-style competition. As a popular addition to many a watertoy garage, these waterparks offer fun for big kids as well as small ones. Don your life jacket and prepare to get jumping!

Snorkelling is one of the most accessible yet liberating activities to enjoy in the water on a superyachts. Charter guests of all ages can take part, with the crew members creating bespoke ‘snorkel safaris’ that will suit your experience level, mobilities and age range. Whether you are simply floating above the action while watching a colourful coral head or swimming into a mystical grotto teeming with tropical fishes, there are some great experiences to be had with a snorkel, mask and fins.

Paddleboarding has become very popular over recent years, and it offers a great way to challenge yourself physically while also feeling closer to nature. Take off with a group of friends to explore a nearby cove or and get up close to a pod of migrating whales without the disturbance of a tender’s engine, for example. Another fun way to test your balance on a paddleboard is with a yoga session led by an instructor from the yacht’s crew.

Although it might not be the easiest watersport to master, waterskiing is a hugely fun and, once you’ve got the hang of it, it is highly addictive!

Of course, you will no doubt want to visit attractions ashore as well as spending time on the water during a fun group charter. Perhaps learning the traditions of an ancient perfumery is up your street, you might like to tour a celebrated vineyard with the owner, or a historical site could be brought to life with a sunset dining experience. There are an endless array of land-based options for your charter, and the yachts can provide a safe and dry way to reach them from an anchorage, as well as some fun ways to get around once you get ashore.
