About Day Boat Charters

Everyone dreams of a day spent on a yacht, cruising to secluded beaches in Sardinia, or dining at seaside restaurants in St Tropez and trying out all the latest water toys, you are sure to have a day like no other! If you enjoy being on a boat but don't intend to spend your entire holiday on the water, a day charter can be a great option, and will surely be the most memorable day of your vacation. Or perhaps if you're a yachting novice, you could try renting a yacht for a day to dip your feet in the water before planning a whole week at sea! Get in touch with one of the Boatbookings Team today or email us at to start planning your day. 

Experience the glamorous coastline of the Côte d'Azur, cruising for a beach lunch at Club 55 in St Tropez and arriving back just in time to watch the spectacular Fireworks in Cannes during your French Riviera Yacht Charter. Step back in time and visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii and fall in love along the spectacular Amalfi Coast such as in Capri or Naples, or find your very own piece of heaven on one of the many Greek islands.

Greece, and especially the Cyclades Islands boast popular destinations such as Mykonos, which is home to Cavo Paradiso on Paradise Beach. It is common to take out daily boat rentals in Greece as well as a villa to enable you to spend your days exploring the hundreds of islands nearby. You can also charter boat with a skipper from Athens, which has a major international airport.

Italy offers fantastic opportunities for day charters, especially in Sardinia and La Madellena, Liguria, the famous Gulf of Naples enveloping Naples/Capri/Positano, and other destinations including Sicily and the Aeolian Islands. The Amalfi Coast makes for an incredible day charter, where you can fully experience the culture and rich heritage of the South of Italy.

If you're looking for a day charter for an event of more than 12 people, that normally requires a yacht with a specialised license.

Here's what some of our happy customers had to say after their Day Charters:

It was AWESOME! Very professional, tons of fun. Great boat and crew. I would do it all over again, it was a fantastic family memory. Thanks for your help in putting it together.

A customer who rented a day catamaran in Tortola for a large family outing.

I just want to thank you for all your hard work in setting up my wife and I on one hell of a day. The boat was fantastic, the weather and scenery were beautiful. You really made it a special day by going that extra mile in securing a reasonably priced boat for my wife and I to take out and enjoy ourselves. I will definitely be using your services again when my friends and I head off to the Caribbean next year and will be in direct contact with you since you were such a pleasure to work with.

Boatbookings makes Day Charters Easy!

Our dedicated team of brokers take care of everything for you: from finding the right boat and skipper, confirming availability, providing maps to the boat and suggesting interesting things to do in the area. But we also understand that you may have some worries associated with hiring a boat. Recognising this, we insist on the following from our day boat charters:
    • They are all insured by the owner
    • They all conform to strict marine regulations of their respective countries
    • Skippers speak English (if you have different requirements, please let us know)
    • Generally speaking, if the weather is inclement, we will attempt to move the date so that you can still do the charter
    • We will give you the best price, without "middleman" markups! Going directly will not give you a better price, and in many cases, you will get a worse price.
