There can’t be a better way to entertain and delight your kids than having fun in Hong Kong waters! Think about it, you could be approaching or even exceeding the cost of a private yacht charter to stay a few days at a resort or theme park. That’s why, for many of our guests, it’s the family yacht charter that makes it more appealing than any big soiree. A family yacht charter experience provides you the advantage of combining a relaxing day put with the best water toys and onboard entertainment facilities that will keep your kids amused and engrossed all the time.
A family yacht charter could be at the top of your mind but not all yachts are family-friendly. So, we have come up with some useful tips that will help you select the best yacht charter for your kids and near & dear ones.
Tips to book a family yacht charter with kids
Choose a yacht with kids’ friendly features like sea toys, safety nets, play areas with cabins to comfortably accommodate all.
If you have toddlers, ensure that the boat has safety nets and gates to keep them safe and away from the restricted areas. Your charter needs to have an enclosed deck as well to prevent accidents with your kids.
Sail to a nearby beach destination such as South Bay or Clearwater Bay that will not only reduce the chances of the kids feeling being cooped up, but also will allow you to have more time for swimming and games at anchor. These destinations are filled with plenty of activities for kids to enjoy as well as clean water.
Choose a boat with air conditioning if your kids are young enough to need a midday sleep.
On a kid friendly yacht charter, the crew goes the extra mile to accommodate your specific needs.
Part of looking for a family-friendly yacht charter is to select a yacht with onboard entertainment systems such as video games, karaoke and also water slides and water toys like noodles or inflatable swimming pools.
Some boats may have crew members with nanny qualifications but that doesn’t mean that they will be full-time nannies! However, they can certainly make the experience more enjoyable for your kids by moving furniture to create safe play spaces for them and setting up games.
Speak to your charter coordinator if there are any special considerations for taking pets onboard.
Involve your kids in booking a charter itinerary for them and seek their opinion about what excites them.
As a parent, you must impress upon your kids that safety is paramount while being in the sea, and they need to listen carefully and abide by the instructions of the crew.
