Discover the Komodo Dragon by Private Yacht Charter


Komodo Dragon in Indonesia

A yacht charter to see the Komodo Dragons in Indonesia is the stuff of myths and legends. Flying into Bali, with a short domestic flight to Flores Island, your private yacht charter then takes you to the Komodo Archipelago: Komodo Island, Rinca Island, and Padar Island. This is a UNESCO Reserve and World Heritage Site due to the highly endangered flora and fauna, including the Komodo Dragon itself. We’ve written a little previously about what a trip to see the dragons looks like for a yacht charter traveler

Once you’ve arrived at the islands there is so much to see and do. There are hikes, scuba diving, swimming, and experiences both above and below the waterline—including hundreds of giant fruit bats filling up the skies at sunset. This guide can help you plan out your experiences safely. Be prepared for hot, dry weather during the peak travel season of April-December, and remember to pack your camera!

The Balearic Islands have a reputation for taking their young, beautiful, tanned visitors from daytime on the beach to nighttime in the clubs with very little sleep in between. Life is a nonstop party on Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera.

Discover Antibes, France on a Private Yacht Charter

The French Riviera

The French Riviera

The French Riviera boasts so much more than gorgeous beaches. Of course, you can spend every single day on the beach and feel like you’ve had a fantastic vacation when visiting Antibes. For the explorer, however, there are also not-to-be-missed excursions and adventures at hand. The private yacht charter traveler who loves a deep dive into history can climb up to Fort Carre. There you will see the 16th-century building used as a prison (for notables including Napoleon Bonaparte during the French Revolution) and learn more about warfare in that era. Fort Carre is located in Antibes Old Town, where you can feast on mussels in white wine and crepes, and buy a tourist trinket or two, or a handful of Provence lavender.

We also recommend following this superyacht insider itinerary for the South of France; it’s a bucket-list trip. The Cap d’Antibes, for example, is a sightseeing spot worth its weight in gold, lined with gardens, fabulous estates, and gorgeous ocean views.

Yacht Charter Bodrum, Visit the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology


One of the coolest things to do in Turkey is visit the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology, housed in the Bodrum Castle and overlooking the impressive Bodrum harbor. Bodrum is the perfect town from which to board and/or disembark a private yacht charter to cruise through beautiful crystal green and blue waters. The museum is also a must-see when in Bodrum before or after your yacht charter.

Bodrum , Turkey Ancient Amphoras from Ancient Shipwrecks

Ancient shipwrecks found deep in the Aegean, Icarian, and Mediterranean Seas have been meticulously catalogued and their riches placed on display. Read more here about the astonishing artifacts you can find, including pottery and weaponry dating back 3,500 years. Turkey’s southern coastline is a haven for the Turkish Gulet vessel, on which a yacht charter is known as the “Blue Voyage.” The building and development of these ships is documented in the Bodrum Maritime Museum, another vacation discovery we highly recommend.

There is an island off the coast of Maine where time appears to stand still. Small, shingled 19th-century homes dot the otherwise undisturbed landscape. Rocky shores, wildflowers, and the Atlantic delight the soul. Monhegan Island attracts those who view life with an artist’s eye, as it has for centuries. Edward Hopper, George Bellows, Rockwell Kent, and others stayed and painted here. You can read more about them in this article.

Visitors come to paint, seek out rare birds, eat fresh lobster, and hike through serene forests. Monhegan Island invites people of all ages to unplug and focus on the sunset instead of their cell phones. One particularly lovely way to pay a visit is via a private charter yacht. Sail into the natural harbor and watch for whales along the way! Read more about this natural wonder here.
