Why book a yacht for a luxury Cannes day charter?

If you’re looking for an unforgettable experience in the French Riviera, a Cannes day charter might be the perfect option for you. A day charter allows you to explore the stunning coastline, experience the luxurious lifestyle of the French Riviera, and make the most of your time in this beautiful part of the world. In this article, we’ll dive into the details of Cannes day charters, what they offer, why they’re popular, and what you need to know before booking one.

What is a Cannes Day Charter?

A Cannes day charter is a boat rental service that allows you to spend a day exploring the French Riviera by sea. The charter typically includes a captain/skipper to drive the boat for you, fuel, and all necessary safety equipment. You can choose the type of boat that suits your needs (sailing boat, Best Value day charter, luxury yacht or large sailing catamaran if you have a large group). The charter company can also arrange for a variety of additional services, such as catering, water sports equipment, and transportation to and from your hotel.

Why Choose a Cannes Day Charter?

A day charter in Cannes is a fantastic way to experience the French Riviera. You can explore hidden coves (The Esterel coast is not far from Cannes) and beaches. Why not swim in crystal-clear waters (Check out the photo of the Lerins islands), and soak up the stunning scenery?.

With a private charter, you can avoid the crowds and enjoy a more intimate experience with your family or friends. You can also tailor your itinerary to your preferences and avoid the hassle of public transportation.

What Can You Expect on a Cannes Day Charter?

Your Cannes day charter will typically start in the morning (09h30-10h00AM), when you meet your captain – and your charter broker if he’s doing his job…- at the designated location. You’ll be briefed on the safety procedures and the itinerary for the day. Remain flexible because the weather and wind are often unpredictable. From there, you’ll set off to explore the coastline, stopping at various locations along the way and enjoy food specialties at one of the local restaurant. You can choose to swim, snorkel, sunbathe, or simply relax and take in the views. If you’re interested in water sports, your charter company can arrange for equipment such as jet skis or paddleboards. Some of the most popular locations to visit on a Cannes day charter include the Lérins Islands, Cap d’Antibes, and the Esterel coast.

What You Need to Know Before

Before you book your Cannes day charter, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, you should consider the size of your group and the type of boat that will be most suitable. A larger group may require a larger boat, while a smaller group may prefer a more intimate experience on a smaller vessel.

You should also consider the duration of the charter and the itinerary. Some charters offer half-day options (in low season…), while others run for a full day, typically in July and August. You should also consider what you want to see and do during your charter, and whether you want to stop at any specific locations.

Finally, you should consider your budget. Cannes day charters can range in price depending on the type of boat, duration, and additional services. You should also factor in any additional costs, such as food, drinks, or equipment rental.
