Are you going on a boat holiday with the entire family?
Cruising on the open waters can be a lot of fun, but there will be some times when you need to get creative to keep everyone entertained.
To ensure maximum enjoyment for all, here are a few fun, onboard activities you can try during your upcoming private yacht charters.
Educate in a fun manner
Even if your children are still quite young, you can make them part of the daily duties.
You can ask them to mop the deck, sweep the floors, and take out the trash. Or it can even be as simple as setting the table. Doing chores on a boat is much more fun than doing them at home.
Throw a party
You can rent a yacht for a party, regardless of the occasion.
Is your friend’s birthday coming up? Are you looking to do a bachelor or bachelorette party? Or has your company recently won an award and you’re looking to throw a celebration to show appreciation for your team’s efforts?
Either way, there are no limitations when you’re aboard a yacht, and you’re even given an arresting view of the stars or sunset.
To spice up the celebration, you could even decide to go with a themed party, such as Nautical, Hawaiian, Mermaids, and so on! All that’s left for you to do is bring in any additional equipment to prepare for the special occasion. But to save the trouble and make way for other essentials, you can check in with the private yacht rental company for the equipment and items provided aboard the boat.
Make a time-lapse video
Many families or any individuals onboard a yacht, in particular, are placing 360-degree cameras at the front of the boat.
It will record an entire day of activities on board as well as the gorgeous surroundings, go about your normal daily boat routine and enjoy watching the recording back at triple speed.
Dress up like pirates
Pack pirate hats, swords, eye patches, and costumes for a fun Pirate-themed day on the water. You can even give each other pirate names like “Captain Jack” or “Randy Rum” or hang a pirate flag from the mast.
Greet fellow fishermen and boaters like true pirates with an ‘Ahoy, Matey’ or ‘Ahoy, Me Hearties” and instead of saying ‘yes’, everyone has to say ‘aye’. Learn a few more pirate slang words and have fun talking in true pirate language for a day.
There’s an almost guaranteed chance that you’ll spot a lot of wildlife during your trip by the waters.
Create a game out of it, by giving everyone a list of fish, birds, and animals you’ll potentially spot while cruising. The first person to spot the type of animal can tick it off their list.
The winner is the one with the most ticks!
Nothing bonds a family more than fun board games. Whether you like scrabble, chess, dominoes, or snakes and ladders, remember to pack your favourite board games for the trip.
Especially, if it’s a bit cold and windy on the deck you can enjoy a warm hot chocolate in the cabin while having a laugh.
A plain deck of cards can also open a lot of fun gaming possibilities for some family entertainment.
