Travelling After COVID: Why a Private Yacht Cruise is a Great Idea
Friends having fun on a private yacht cruise

Let’s face it, COVID-19’s been a nightmare as far as travel’s concerned. It’s forced people to put vacations on hold, cut their adventures short, and forced them to stay in one spot for months on end! Indeed, there was a whopping 74% drop in tourist arrivals last year versus 2019. When travelling after COVID, considering a private yacht cruise is certainly the way to go.

Are you desperate to get away and waiting with bated breath for a time when you can go travelling again? Well, a luxury yacht cruise would be a perfect way to celebrate when the big day finally comes! Imagine floating on the azure blue waters, with glorious sunlight glinting off the surface; sipping champagne between swims.

Sounds good, right? Want to find out more about the benefits of bidding farewell to the stress of the pandemic by spending time on a beautiful boat? You’re in the right place!

Today we’re going through the many reasons to charter a luxury yacht as we learn to adjust to living with the pandemic. Check them out!

A Private Yacht Cruise is as Safe as it Gets

In the crazy new world of COVID-19, the first noteworthy advantage of chartering a luxury yacht is how safe it is (especially compared to other forms of travel). You’re out at sea, in your own little bubble, either by yourselves and with our crew of two tending to your every want and need. There’s no mingling in large crowds, no risk of contamination, and supreme levels of care are taken at all times in terms of cleanliness on board.

Our luxury Algarve boat hire service helps to protect your bank account too. While you are planning for your 2022 vacation, you can book now with confidence and secure the dates and times that work best for you.  If your travel plans change, cancel up to 24 hours before your cruise, and receive a full refund, or you can choose to reschedule your cruise for another day. Throw in the Clean & Safe seal we were awarded by Turismo de Portugal and you can trust that your wellbeing’s in safe hands.

It’s Fun-Filled and Extravagant

A luxury yacht charter is a deluxe, decadent experience that’s shamelessly indulgent. In other words, it’s the ideal way to treat yourself and unwind after months of pandemic-related stress, worry, and social distancing. Charter a yacht and you can hit pause on reality, spending the day in a state of blissful relaxation with your family group, or travel companions.

You can do as much or as little as you want with your time on the boat as well. From sunbathing on deck and swimming in the sea to using the paddleboards and taking out the RIB, there’s no shortage of fun things to do. As for our private yacht hire services, you’ll sip on chilled bottles of bubbly, gaze in wonder at the picturesque Algarve coastline, explore coastal caves by paddleboard, and swim and snorkel until your heart’s content.

It’s a Unique Way to Travel

It’s not every day that you get to hang out on a luxury yacht either. This is the lifestyle of the 1%; a seductive insight into how the other half live! As much as anything else, then, chartering these vessels for a well-deserved vacation is about doing something different, memorable, and exciting. With a group of up to eight guests, it’s not too expensive a way to spend a few hours or the day.

Trust us, drifting serenely between stunning locations on our luxurious Sunseeker yacht feels far removed from matters of quarantine and coronavirus. You’re transported physically, mentally, and emotionally to what seems like heaven on earth, being wined, cared for, and pampered at every turn! Likewise, you see the world from a fresh vantage point, enjoy the amazing Algarve coastline, and learn a thing or two about seafaring as you go.

For example, our Vilamoura yacht charter options include a sunset cruise, a hen party, and the famous Benagil cave. Go on any (or all!) of these spectacular experiences and you won’t forget them in a hurry.

It’s a Bespoke Trip

Hiring a private yacht (whether it’s for a few hours or the whole day) puts you in complete control. There’s no waiting in line, compromising on activities, or sharing resources with complete strangers. You have the ultimate freedom to come, go, and do as you please!

That’s a liberating feeling- especially after government regulations have dictated what you can and can’t do for so long. You’ll enjoy a level of flexibility that other vacations simply can’t offer, exploring new views, seeing novel sights, and exploring different places on a whim.

Another noteworthy element of control comes down to budget. Here at Azure Luxury Charters, for example, we have a range of trip options to suit every budget. From a full day of seeing dolphins to a morning’s private charter, you’re sure to find something wonderful that suits your specific requirements and vacation schedule.

It’s a Great way to See Marine Wildlife

One of the best parts of spending any length of time at sea is your proximity to marine life. Imagine watching pods of dolphins jump, dive, and frolic in the wake of your yacht. Picture yourself surrounded by schools of exotic fish as you snorkel off pristine Algarve beaches. And cast your mind into the watery depths, where colourful coral and flourishing flora provide a home to myriad sea creatures of all shapes and sizes.

Combine this amazing marine life with the stunning natural surroundings, and you’ll struggle to put the experience into words! You’ll come away with countless photos, dazzling tales to tell, and unforgettable memories.

Remember the Post-COVID Benefits of a Private Yacht Cruise

COVID-19 has been an anthem to peoples’ travel plans over the last 18 months! We’ve been locked up, stuck indoors, and unable to venture further than the local grocery store. Thankfully, though, with vaccinations rolling out around the world and the weather growing warmer each day, things are starting to look up!

If you’re chomping at the bit to take a trip, then a private yacht cruise could be an ideal solution. With any luck, the benefits that we’ve highlighted in this post have revealed exactly why that’s the case. Are you ready to charter a yacht in the Algarve and experience the best Vilamoura boat trips for yourself?
