How to spend a fantastic holiday on a catamaran

If you’ve decided to spend your next holiday in a seaside town, there’s nothing more fun than hiring a catamaran to go on an adventure. You can sail to explore all the beaches and hidden places you’ve never seen on land. What’s more, if you spend a holiday on a catamaran, you can try many activities. For example, water sports, diving or simply experiencing places from a different perspective.

Make sure you have the necessary experience to prepare your holiday and choose the perfect boat. Whether it’s your first experience or you don’t want to worry too much, the Sail OnSea team can organise the perfect holiday. Here are some tips on how to maximise your day on the catamaran.

Leave port or anchorage early

Most importantly, to maximise your day, it is crucial to leave on time in the morning. What’s more, if you leave the port on time, you can leave behind the crowds that will come later. If you have planned your itinerary in advance, make sure you know approximately how long you need to arrive at your destination or first port of call. Make sure you leave enough time for everything so you don’t need to rush.

Plan your day according to the weather

It is very important to check the weather before you go. It is advisable to check for possible rain and, more importantly, wind. If the weather forecast is not so ideal, make the adjustment to your day. For example, if the wind is going to be strong, look for some sheltered bays where you can anchor safely. If you charter a catamaran with a skipper, their expertise will help you plan your day perfectly.

Bring some equipment for water activities

One of the biggest perks of renting a boat are the amazing places you’ll discover on your trip. More likely you’ll come across some amazing hidden coves where you can grab your gear and start doing some kind of water sport. Depending on the type of catamaran you charter, you can enjoy a lot of fun activities. If you find a place with amazing sea bottom and crystal clear water, there is no better activity to do than snorkelling! It’s a relaxing way to make lots of memories.

Don’t plan too many programmes

If you charter a boat, many people make the mistake of planning too many stopovers and programs in one day. Note that having too much on your itinerary can make you rush. It’s better to have less planning and have room for spontaneous ideas. You might spend more time in one stop to explore the city or discover something amazing along the way.

Leave plenty of time to have fun

Last but not least, leave some time for fun! The most important reason to charter a catamaran is to have fun and explore. Leave time to relax on the catamaran, sunbathe or do some fun activities. You can take advantage of the beautiful blue sea by swimming or snorkelling. If you have the right equipment, you can even do some water sports or go fishing! The options are endless! Plus, there’s a good chance you’ll fall in love with a few small towns or hidden bays along the way.
