There are tons of fun things your crew can participate in, from picnics on an idyllic beach, to wildlife spotting, to chalet staycations. This activity is ideal for guests looking for an adventure during their yacht trip. Discover untouched beaches and hidden gems as you walk from one island to another.

Fishing Fun At Sea

Ocean fishing and fresh catch

Fishing rods are included on plenty of our yachts, with bait available as an add-on purchase. Beginners and experienced anglers alike can cast their lines and enjoy a fishing trip out on the open ocean. Let our experienced crew teach you how to fish out at sea, and then fire up the BBQ grills to enjoy your freshly caught fish for dinner!

  • Smoking: Before embarking on your journey, check if smoking is allowed on board. Some yachts allow them at designated areas. Some don’t allow onboard.
  • Pet Policies: If you want to bring a pet onboard the yacht, check with the Yacht rentals if pets allowed. If the yacht is pet-friendly, inquire about any additional charges associated with bringing a pet.
  • Red Wine Consideration: Note that Red wine is not allowed on most yachts due to its potential to stain the deck. Confirm with the rental company if this policy applies to your chosen yacht.
  • Inclusions in the Price: Check the yacht rental pages to understand what is included in the price. This may encompass fuel, the services of a skipper, and BBQ services etc.
  • Insurance: Generally, Yacht rentals in Singapore will have the public liability insurance. But it is always a good idea to have your own personal insurance.
  • Wet Weather Policy: The yacht captain holds the final decision in the event of wet weather, as the safety of everyone on board is paramount. In the event of heavy rain, guests will be required to wait at the departure point while the captain verifies whether it’s safe to proceed.
  • Rescheduling: If it becomes impossible to delay any longer due to wet weather, the booking may be rescheduled to another date of your choice (subject to availability). Please note that this is determined by our on-site yacht operators, rather than weather forecasts.
  • Refund Policy: Please note that we only provide rescheduling, and not refunds, in the event of wet weather cancellation.
