Best Family-Friendly Locations to Visit on a Luxury Superyacht

The British Virgin Islands

These beautiful islands are only a short distance away from one another making island hopping really easy. With their protected waters the area is a great destination for first-time charterers to cruise to.

Tortola, the capital as well as the largest of the British Virgin Islands offers great shopping with exotic spices, sweet smelling soap and rum stores to choose from. Head for the 96-acre Sage Mountain National Park and walk along the trails which end up at the British Virgin Islands highest point, about 1,716 feet. You could then cruise to Cane Garden Bay before sailing west to Jost Van Dyke where you can swim to the Soggy Dollar Bar for a drink.

From here south-east of Tortola is Norman Island. This island was once a hiding place for pirates’ loot which it is thought may have inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write Treasure Island. It’s a fantastic spot to enjoy an underwater treasure hunt, snorkelling close to yellowtail snappers or eagle rays. Peter Island is northeast of Norman Island, and it’s here you can dock in the marina. Why not have a Thermal Sand Bundle Massage at the spa to soothe those aching muscles after a day of diving?

It’s then onto Cooper Island’s Cistern Point for more snorkelling. Virgin Gorda is next on the itinerary which has lots of masked humans at The Baths. There are huge granite boulders that form sheltered pools along the beach here. Finally, a northward cruise to Anegada, a lovely coral island, to see if you can spot any turtles or groupers swimming near the wreck of the Parmatta. This wreck dates back to 1853 and is an amazing diving site.
Inside Passage, Alaska

With its stunning fjords, calving glaciers, whales, sea lions and enormous icebergs, Alaska’s Inside Passage is becoming a popular destination for yacht charterers. Start your trip in Juneau through an ice destination that takes some beating. Hop on the Mount Roberts Tramway which will take you 1,800ft into the mountains for views across the Gastineau Channel. You could take a helicopter flight tour and actually land on a glacier. The Mendenhall is just one of 40 huge glaciers that flows from Juneau Icefield including the Taku which is now advancing.

Cruise west to Glacier Bay National Park from Juneau. This National Park is where there are many humpback whales and harbour seals. It’s an awesome sight when the seals jump at the thunderous sound of the park’s seven tidewater glaciers as they calve and lose gigantic blocks of ice into the sea.

Take a dip in the Baranof Warm Springs to the south then later cruise to Admiralty Island and onward to Pybus Bay. You might even see a brown bear on the shoreline or a nesting bald eagle, so don’t forget to have your camera ready.

Northeast you will come upon the Tracy Arm fjord which is more than 30 miles long. Your last day is spent back in Juneau, maybe hiking or stopping at the Alaskan Brewing Company to try one of the many drinks.

A must-do when in Alaska is to meet the Alaskan husky dogs and do a little dog sledding. The children will love this and if you fancy, a helicopter ride to one of Juneau Icefield’s glaciers is absolutely thrilling.

How about trying the 5,330ft Zip Rider at Icy Strait Point? This is in Hoonah just west of Juneau. It’s a white-knuckle ride and not one for the faint-hearted.
