5 Reasons Why a Private Charter is the Best Way to Explore the Turks and Caicos

A Guest Post by Poseidon Charters Caicos

Are you thinking of a fun vacation with family and plan to see the Turks and Caicos? If so, have you already decided when and how? What about chartering a private yacht in Turks & Caicos? I'm sure it is something that you and your family will love and enjoy. In my opinion, there is simply no better way to reboot, recharge, and reconnect with your surroundings than a yacht charter vacation plan. You also have the freedom to organize your luxurious honeymoon, milestone birthday party, retirement party, and team building, etc. The feeling of freedom that you get on a boat is a powerful, nearly addictive force. There are unlimited exciting activities that your family can participate in, as some major private charters offer swimming, diving, movie shows, romantic evening dinner, yoga, gymnastics, and more.  

Imagine the feeling of immense peace when you look out into the endless blue ocean and breathe fresh oxygen. There's nothing better than the time you spent finding yourself on vacations like these. There are many reasons to hire a private charter when visiting Turks and Caicos. The overall experience, the travel, and your “take away” impression of the Turks and Caicos boat charter is a much better experience when on a private crewed boat charter.


1. Experience the Ultimate Privacy of a Private Charter

When it comes to enjoyment and fun with your family and friends without any disturbance and restrictions, a private charter may be the best possible option for doing so. A private charter offers you convenience, flexibility, and overall comfort by avoiding the hassle of sailing commercials. A private charter lets you step into a world of freedom and fulfill all your expectations of a magical trip. This joyful package comes with proper safety, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. Imagine a private experience with no strangers on board. For your knowledge, a private charter is also known as a whole boat charter, which means that no one else can book with you on the same yacht.

Yes, privacy is probably one of the best aspects of yacht charter holidays, as there is no necessity to fight over a sun chair. You'll have the whole thing to yourself and your guests on the charter, whether it is your family or friends. Most of the time, the private charter carries only a couple of passengers, or you can even rent the whole jet for yourself and your companions. A private charter is a privilege enjoyed by a minimal number of people as not everyone can afford it. This means there won't be any strangers sitting next to you. Being only with your closest friends, business partners, or your spouse in a private boat yacht is perfect for a special celebration, a relaxing day trip, or a quick escape from the monotony of everyday life.  

A charter offers a lot of space for your guests and the freedom to customize your experience according to your style. No doubt you'll be entertained with so many amenities and create the best memories!

You can specify all of your preferences to a top yacht charter's agent, and they will help you determine the crew that fits your requirements. This is the best way to unwind from the daily lifestyle and give yourself the gift of a stress-free trip. Make the journey itself just as enjoyable as the final destination!



2. Enjoy the Services of A Dedicated Charter Crew 

Trust the well-trained courteous local staff to take you on a cruise as you've never experienced before. They are dedicated to serve your needs and ensure that you have a pleasant time. 

You can even request private chefs on board, who most of the time, are very skillful as they have previously worked in some world-class restaurants. The charter chef always prepares food based on your preferences and dietary needs. They will prepare the most delicious meals to make this trip even more memorable.  

Leave it to the experts, relax and enjoy the dreamy scenery. Remember that everything will go according to the activity planning that you indicated before boarding. The crew will work together to make your experience as notable and pleasurable as it can be. 

Some of their luxurious services are:

  • Arrangements for Meals: The professional chef will recommend different menus, but it's up to you to choose what you like. 

  • Provide Detailed Guidelines: A private charter dealing company provides you the expert crew that has the best skills to help you with anything on the yacht. They can assist you and provide you with the proper guidelines every time you need it.

  • Luxury Living: Except for fine dining, you can also have access to luxurious spas and world-class resorts as well as visit some secluded pristine beaches.

3. A Private Charter is not as Pricey as You'd First Imagine

Most people believe that renting a private charter is too costly and only for rich people. This can be true for high-end luxury yachts, but there are many affordable options out there. Hiring a private charter is not as expensive as you might think. Yacht charters are more cost-efficient when traveling in large groups. Invite your friends and close relatives to come along on your yacht vacation so that you share the expenses. This way, you can all enjoy a high level of luxury without spending a fortune.



Usually, the price depends on the yacht itself and their provided services. Some of the factors that can affect the budget of a charter yacht are:

  • The category of the yacht itself: The number one determinant of the cost is the yacht itself, especially its size, facilities, and design.

  • Seasonal prices: High-season yachting is usually more expensive. For example, yachting in the Mediterranean is costlier in summer, whereas in Turks and Caicos, fares are contingent upon demand and season. So-called “shoulder months” - or months at the ends of the high season - can be slightly cheaper.

  • Overall trip duration: The average yacht charter is around one week, and many charter providers have minimum stays of at least five days. So the price of your yachting also depends on the duration of stay. 


4. Thrilling Activities like Snorkelling

Snorkelling is one of the most popular activities for tourists in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Thanks to the Turks and Caicos Barrier Reef, the islands have an abundance of vibrant reef formation and relatively calm waters. All that's required is that snorkellers must know how to swim and be moderately comfortable in the water. 

First, grab a pair of fins (optional for the beginners who may prefer aqua shoes while learning proper fin technique). Besides fins, other snorkel kit gear, such as masks and UV protection clothes, will protect you from the cold and avoid any contact with the seabed. For safety measures, snorkelling beginners need to go out as a group. You'll soon discover that this water sport is a perfect opportunity for sharing unforgettable moments with family and friends. You might not see the link between snorkelling and relaxation, but that's because you haven't had your first dive yet. Here your only job is to move around and observe the beauty of the ocean and the underwater marvels that surround you! It's time to relax!

Some Snorkeling Basics 

There are still some basic rules that need to be followed to enjoy the marine world safely:

  • Always go out as a group, especially if you're a beginner

  • Check the weather before jumping in the water.

  • Locate your start point and several exit points before.

  • Never overestimate your physical abilities.


5. It's a vacation like no other

Renting a private yacht enables you to enjoy the benefits and amenities of a beautiful floating villa and to discover a variety of places in Turks and Caicos with comfort, luxury, and privacy. Imagine waking up every morning in a different location with a stunning view over the Turks and Caicos and your charter anchored off a beautiful cove. Private Boat Charter Turks and Caicos offers the ultimate luxurious vacations.

Sailing in a private charter is one of the safest and most luxurious ways to travel with your family and friends. To travel around the world in a private charter is a great and once-in-lifetime experience. Enjoy the convenience, flexibility, and relaxation that a private charter in Turks and Caicos has to offer!
