Watersport activities for the children, and adults...

When it comes to luxury yacht charters, there’s more to the experience than just sunbathing and relaxing on deck, enjoying gourmet food or exploring the oceans. With a range of exciting watersports activities available, especially for children, you can make the most of your time on the open sea.

For a more relaxed and leisurely underwater adventure, snorkeling is the perfect option. With a snorkel, mask, and fins, you can float on the surface and get up close and personal with colorful fish, corals, and other sea creatures.


Scuba dive in the crystal clear waters of your destination and discover a world teeming with vibrant marine life. With diving equipment and a professional instructor available on some superyachts, you can safely explore some of the most stunning underwater sites.

Top watersport activities during a yacht charter

Are you tired of the same water sports activities? It’s time to take your experience to new heights with flyboarding. This exciting and rapidly growing extreme water sport is the perfect way for luxury travellers to add some adventure to their next

Flyboarding uses the latest in hydroplane technology to propel you high above the water’s surface (10-15m!), with underfoot propulsion and hand stabilisation systems. However, a certain amount of training is required.


Motorized surfing is a brand new worldwide discipline. Surfboards are revolutionizing the world of yacht water sports. With the ability to reach breathtaking speeds and glide over the water, they provide a thrilling experience that doesn’t depend on waves or optimal wind conditions. Instead, surfboards powered by an electric or small thermal motor can be controlled with a simple ‘trigger’ switch. Whether you’re a seasoned thrill-seeker or new to the sport, surfboards are an ideal choice for a unique and exhilarating experience.

Stand-up paddleboarding

Stand-up paddleboarding is a fun and accessible way to explore the water with children. With a paddle and board, you can navigate your way around the coast, taking in the scenery and enjoying a full-body workout.

Watersport activities: RYA instructor or Rendez-Vous watersport

An on-board RYA watersport instructor is a huge advantage for guests on a private yacht charter.

If you don’t have an RYA instructor on board your yacht, it is usually possible to arrange watersports activities through an external supplier: water toys can be delivered to your yacht. This depends largely on the specific services offered by your charter company and the regulations in the location you’re in.

Watersports activities are sure to add a new level of excitement to your luxury charter experience. Whether you’re a seasoned water sports enthusiast or a beginner, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

If you have no RYA instructor onboard, a rendez-vous watersport is also possible.
