Family Yacht Charters

A private family yacht charter is a fantastic way for families to enjoy time together.  Some of our favorite rave reviews have been from three generations enjoying one larger yacht, or multiple yachts in tandem. 

Many charter yachts warmly welcome families and children. We can help you select an itinerary with plenty of activities and a pace tailored to children. Children of all ages will enjoy and learn from the wide array of sea life, islands, and local culture they experience from your private yacht.

Many possibilities await your family, worldwide!

Rave Reviews!

71' Motor Yacht HALCYON SEAS
Southern California

"We had a fabulous time on our first charter experience. The crew were exceptional. Captain Anthony was experienced and positive. Penny and Lulu were very welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent and prepared with care and forethought. We loved getting to know the crew. They knew when to engage and when to sit back and allow us to interact without them. HALCYON SEAS was extremely and noticeably clean and was kept so throughout the cruise. We were impressed! There is full air-conditioning and plenty of windows if we wanted to have a breeze. We enjoyed Southern California and found diverse activities from zip lining, to hiking, to snorkeling, to dolphin watching. The ship also had Yamaha snorkel electric swimmers for our use and a swimming raft. So fun! One additional comment is that Lulu made us gourmet chocolate peanut butter cups for our departure. What a treat!"

63' Power Catamaran VIGILANT 1
South of France 

“All 3 crew couldn’t do enough for us. Captain Philippe was fantastic, especially with all the water sports, and the food was amazing. All three crew worked all day to ensure we had an unbelievable experience. The yacht was very clean and it was serviced all the time. Felt like a 5 star hotel. If we required air conditioning on Captain Philippe was happy to accommodate. The food was exceptional and the chef was happy to cater for our children’s basic food requirements as well. The south of France was magnificent and we especially enjoyed spending the day in the quiet coves. We couldn’t be happier with the service and experience and we are already talking about doing it again next year in a different location.”

130' Motor Yacht SERENGETI
Juneau, Alaska, USA

"Everyone had an incredible experience on SERENGETI.  Captain Mike and all the crew made the trip so personal and enjoyable for each of us, from oldest to youngest.

Our Overall Rating for this trip was a 10 out of 10.

The crew were unbelievable.  They were extremely professional, friendly, and helpful.  We wanted for absolutely nothing and they bent over backwards to get us off the boat and into experiences or to make us as comfortable as possible. 

SERENGETI is an exceptionally beautiful and comfortable boat.  The enclosed top deck and rear deck were very comfortable, even during bad weather.  The bedrooms and bathrooms were so pretty and enjoyable.   The main living areas were very cozy.  And each meal seemed to have a new decorative set up with candles, placemats, and other decorative items -- so fun and inviting.

Everyone enjoyed Chef Jim's food -- maybe a little too much (we are all on diets now).  He was so willing to go above and beyond and make something different for my picky kids:  we really appreciated his willingness to do extra to keep everyone fed.  He made wonderful, delicious meals that we enjoyed very much.

Alaska was stunning! We saw an incredible amount of varied terrain and so many animals.  The course that Captain Mike had plotted gave such a variety of different areas to see and when he said we were going to see whales or sea lions, he wasn't kidding!  Everyone was very engaged and excited.  The fishing was unreal:  my 9 year old daughter now loves to fish.

It really was above and beyond what we expected.  Both my kids had no intention of leaving the boat and my son is already plotting how we can hire the SERENGETI again.  My parents did and saw things they never dreamed they would."                                                                                       

3-generation Private Family Charter - American families

130' Motor Yacht SERENGETI
Juneau, Alaska, USA

"The charter definitely rates a 10 out of 10. The crew are thoroughly professional, knowledgeable about their business, the area, the fish and all the other wildlife. We know a bit about boats and this crew takes seamanship to a higher level.  They couldn't do any more to accommodate our wishes.

SERENGETI looks much newer than its age. Everything is in good shape, working properly, and scrupulously clean. The water toys were a big hit with the younger members and the 34 foot tender was a huge bonus for fishing, crabbing, shrimping and site seeing. It is equipped like a yacht as well. The yacht is well ventilated with a makeup air system. There are no musty smells. The cuisine was just fine and the chef and stewardesses went out of their way to respond to our requests.

Alaska is breathtakingly beautiful. It would take years to see it all. The wildlife is abundant and magnificent. We saw everything. The helicopter ride is a must. We lucked out and had a perfectly clear day - rare for Juneau! I would consider chartering again if I can match the quality of this yacht and crew."
