Whether you’re looking for a small celebration, staycation, or a new family experience, yacht rentals in Singapore are a great way to have a fun day out!
Living in Singapore means you’ve got access to off-the-beaten-track islands and many good beaches. But if you want a new way to experience these offerings, then consider a yacht charter or yacht rental instead! This way, you can enjoy sunsets, star-lit dinners and a great variety of water sports with minimal hassle. Here’s our handy list of some of the best yacht rentals in Singapore. Quick tip: Each operator has an array of yacht rental packages, so make it a point to ask about meals, personalisation requests, trip durations, group sizes, island hop-on, hop-off options and other necessities you may need to bring on your own before making a booking. If your yacht is stopping at Lazarus island – ask if they will be mooring at the beach where you can swim to the sand – or within the jetty area (calmer for water sports but without the island feel).
NB: Social gatherings of up to 10 pax are now allowed (with no masks needed outdoors!), but do check with each yacht rental company about the group size they are able to take during current restrictions.
Seek Sophie offers over 40 yacht options from affordable 4-hour yacht trips, to gorgeous luxury catamarans, pet-friendly yachts, fishing yacht trips, and even yacht staycations! Seek Sophie also has more interesting yacht rental options like a rustic ‘Hong Kong Junk Boat’ trip (aboard an antique HK junk boat!) and wine and dine cruises. If you are looking for a fun afternoon with the family the 4-hour yacht trip makes for a great experience as there’s a bunch of water activities included from kayaking to stand up paddleboarding, plus the option to add on a barbecue. You’ll get to head to Lazarus Island (make sure you specify if you want to moor at the island itself where you can feel like you are really out at sea, swim to the shore, and play on the beach, or near Lazarus jetty where it’s calmer for water activities but you won’t be able to access the island). Affordable trips start from $588 for 5 pax, and some are even licensed to take 10-15 people! Seek Sophie also has yachts with flexible Covid-19 policies, so you can reschedule without worry.
