What makes yachting in Los Cabos different from other activities in this resort destination is its ability to bring all the fabulous activities onboard. Yachting is an all-in-one, complete package of luxury, relaxation, and fun, that gives you the best of Los Cabos.
Beaches and oceans are the main attractions in Cabo. There is no better way other than yachting to experience these features to make it worthwhile. It is a perfect vacation plan for any occasion, whether it is a destination wedding, birthday party, or just a weekend getaway. Nothing beats the incredible yachting experience in Los Cabos waters.
However, the quality of your yachting experience depends on when you take the trip to Los Cabos. In general, the best time to go yachting is from June to July, and October to December. That’s when you get the best out of this beautiful place and waters around it.
While the sailing terminologies like yachting and boating are often used interchangeably with each other, these are significantly different on real waters.
The boat is a generic term for any vessel that is used to travel on the water. It is generally smaller, ranging from 15 to 30 feet in length, and is meant for sailing in normal water bodies like rivers and lakes.
On the other hand, a yacht is often associated with recreational purposes, and it can be over 160 feet in length. It is built to sail through ocean waters and can withstand rough sea conditions as well.
The core differentiating point between yachting and other sailing activities lies in the nature of the experience they deliver to you. As mentioned earlier, yachting is all about having a great time on the ocean water without having to worry about anything.
Got a Superyacht?
Modern-day “superyachts” are sophisticated in terms of technology and the services they offer. The yachts are equipped with high-tech electronics and navigation systems that allow you to go further with ocean water exploration for several days and make it back safely to the coast.
A yacht is manned by a dedicated team of crew members, from a captain to a professional chef and stewards, always at your service. Consider the yachting experience as a private cruise on the ocean with your friends and family. Depending on the nature of yacht rental or charter, you can experience and immerse yourself in one of the most exceptional moments in your life customized to fit your vision.
