Is a Private Yacht Charter a Safe Option for Travel?

Private yacht charter differs from other holidays. There can be as much or as little interaction with the ‘outside world’, exactly as you want. From spending days relaxing onboard and enjoying water sports in some of the most beautiful and remote locations., you can determine where to go and what to do. You and your guests, and the yacht’s qualified Captain and crew, could be the only ones for miles around. A private luxury charter yacht offers safety and serenity and is the perfect place to de-stress.

Are Charter Yachts a Safe Option?

Luxury charter yachts have very high standards of safety and security, on par or higher than most luxury hotels and resorts. The limited number of staterooms, accommodating a limited number of guests (generally not more than 12), assure Captain and crew can dedicate themselves to taking care of the safety and comfort of the guests. The World Health Organization recently published a guide for managing COVID-19 cases and outbreaks on board ships, and our captains are committed to maintaining every recommendation possible.

Which are the Safest Destinations to Go to?

The safest destinations are probably the ones that are remote and secluded, which few or no other people. Pending the lifting of travel bans and travel restrictions, we can recommend various beautiful locations in out of the way places such as Alaska, and in Southeast Asia South Thailand or else the Anambas Islands, which are perfect for a tropical summer holiday (June – September) without crowds but with the excitement of a Robinson Crusoe experience, an abundance of nature, water sports, swimming, snorkeling, and diving.
