If it’s your first time boarding a boat and cruising around in the crystal clear blue waters of Greece, you should know it’s a bit more complicated than a road trip. So here’s everything you need to know about how to organize your yacht trip from Mykonos so that all people onboard have the best time ever.
Wonder what is a travel itinerary and how to make one? An itinerary is a detailed plan of your trip, it should at least hold the information about where you are going on a yacht tour, when, and how many people are coming. Create a list of all of your stops and destinations and the days intended for each one of them. The itinerary would be a lot like the one you would make if you got a car rental and decided to drive to all the best places to visit in Mykonos.
Creating your itinerary shouldn’t be difficult since there are many gorgeous destinations and hidden places around Mykonos you should visit. From Delos to Paros, there are many small islands worth visiting, and they are all just half an hour away. So don’t spend your entire holiday in a Mykonos villa with a private pool. If you want to go on a longer trip, go to Santorini. Once you choose your destinations, pick a time frame.
While you’re in the process of planning your vacation, you have to make a plan for expenses. After deducting the cost of getting one of Mykonos villas for rental and your very own Mykonos concierge, see how much you can afford on other aspects of your holiday. Your budget should include plane tickets, the cost of the boat charter, the fuel, and all other daily expenses.
The next step on your summer journey is to find a Mykonos yacht rental service. You need to find a reliable company, such as The Ace VIP, and charter the best boat for your needs. We have boats for all occasions – daily cruises, parties, longer cruises, and so on. Figure out how many people will be on the boat and if you will be sailing with children, and pick a size that would suit you and the sleeping arrangement you had in mind.
The most important thing is to stay safe, so double-check boat maintenance before you turn on the engines and start sailing. Inspect everything thoroughly and be sure all the equipment is there and in good working order. Most importantly, check the fire extinguishers, personal flotation devices, and first aid kits. Be sure to have more than enough personal flotation devices for everyone on board.
Whether you’re traveling on your own and taking care of your anchor by yourself or you have help from a professional crew, you will need to learn as much as you can about sailing and your boat. It’s a unique experience, and the more you know, the better.
If you want the best, most luxurious experience possible, then get a fully crewed yacht. It will cost a bit more, but you will have a full staff on board to take care of everything and attend to your every need. It’s the ultimate way to enjoy your vacation – without a care in the world. All that’s left for you to do is eat good food, get a tan, and swim at some of the best Mykonos beaches and around.
Here’s a tip: you don’t need a professional crew, you can have an amazing time sailing all on your own, with no help. Of course, this option does require some previous knowledge and experience. While it is a more affordable option, it takes a lot of work, it’s not as easy as staying in some of the luxury villas Mykonos has to offer. Your whole crew, which now consists of all the people aboard, will have to fill out a sailing resume form, and you will also need insurance.
If you were wondering what to pack for sailing, the answer is – anything you want. There are no tiring TSA regulations and restrictions, so packing should be a breeze. You can take all the cosmetics products in the world with you.
As with everything else in life, planning and getting organized make everything easier, so create a packing list and stick to it. That way, you won’t forget anything, and you’ll be done packing in no time. Just don’t forget the essentials for a beach bag – sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
When it comes to food and drinks, you have options – you can either provide food and refreshments by yourself or hire a private chef as a member of the crew. If you decide to handle it on your own, you will have to make sure to stock up on everything.
On the other hand, if you get a private chef, you won’t have to worry about anything except deciding what your favorite dishes are. Your staff will prepare any delicious Greek food you request, so it’s well worth the extra money.
Once everything has been well organized and planned out, all that’s left is to follow the itinerary and have the time of your life. There truly is no better way of experiencing Greece than spending your vacation sailing around Greek islands in crystal clear waters. So contact us at The Ace VIP and find amazing yachts and private villas in Mykonos that are ideal for your summer vacation.
