eFoil Electric Surfboards have been popping up all over the place and are one of the newest toys to join the inventory of the many toys you’ll find on a crewed charter yacht. It gives you the sensations of “flying” over the water. The calm waters of the Virgin Islands offer the perfect backdrop for beginners or advanced surfers, looking to tear it up a bit. S/Y Ad Astra offers this activity as well as many more water toys; and with their 60hp dinghy, there’s no water sport activity they can’t offer.
Kite surfing is a mix of wakeboarding, windsurfing and surfing. It’s an activity best suited for late teens to adults. The waters surrounding Anegada in the British Virgin Islands offer some of the best kite surfing conditions in the world. S/Y Euphoria is equipped with all the kite gear you need and Captain Cory offers lessons, from teaching the basics to beginners to helping the advanced surfer perfect their form even more.
The Subwing is a towable board, which your captain will tow behind his dinghy when you want to go swimming or snorkeling. The board allows you to swim along the seafloor/reef at a higher speed than with just snorkel fins; it truly enhances your snorkeling and swimming experience. S/Y Oui Cherie carries the subwing onboard as well as many other water toys. But one thing that makes Oui Cherie special is that both crew members are Dive Instructors, who have been living in the Virgin Islands for 18+ years. The crew have the local knowledge to take their guests to the best anchorages and provide that ‘off the beaten path’ adventure you’re looking for.
Seabobs are another great water toy that lets guests move quickly through the water. Depending on the model, Sea bobs can move up to 12mph. Guests hold on to the toy as it propels them through the water, either skimming along the surface or underwater. S/Y Relentless has 2 of these toys onboard for their guests, along with many other great water toys (i.e. 6 person SUP, wakeboard, tube). After guests have exhausted themselves playing on the Seabobs and other various toys, they can enjoy a massage from the onboard masseuse!
Hobie Cats are smaller catamarans that offer speed, maneuverability, and excitement. It’s a great way for kids or novice sailors to practice their hand at sailing, understand the skill of tacking and get a feel for the wind in the sails. It’s also a great toy for the more experienced sailor to use, providing a thrilling experience cruising around in bays. S/Y Bundalong carries a 14’ hobie cat, suitable for 4 people.
