4 Best Water Toys For Singapore Splashing Fun


water toys singapore

Singapore is a small island city-state that boasts a tropical climate and a rich culture. It is a popular destination for tourists seeking sun, sand, and sea, and as such, water activities are a key part of the country’s tourism industry. From swimming in the warm waters of the South China Sea to jet-skiing around the picturesque Sentosa Island, there is no shortage of water-related activities in Singapore.

One particular type of water activity that is especially popular in Singapore is water toys. These toys, which are often inflatable, provide hours of fun for both kids and adults alike. Whether you’re lounging on a giant inflatable swan, battling it out with water guns, or zooming down a water slide, water toys offer a unique and exciting way to enjoy the water.

In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the different types of water toys available in Singapore, where to find them, and safety considerations to keep in mind. We’ll also highlight some of the most popular water toys that you can find in Singapore and provide tips on how to make the most of your water toy experience. So, let’s dive in and explore the world of water toys in Singapore, which our yachts also provide for our boating guests.

Water Mat

The water mat is the most common water toy in Singapore. It measures . The favourite factor of this toy is its ability to float on the sea surface. Guests jumping into the water can float onto it, lie down momentarily to gaze at the sky, the clouds and the sun (with sunglasses on). Some yacht guests would even enjoy with beer cans on their hands.

Valencia Yacht has never failed to provide this water mat play as a complimentary water toy during our yacht chartering trips. As you can see below clip from Tik Tok, our guests certainly have fun playing on the water mat. It took place at Lazarus Island. It was one of the most common sea activities during island hopping trips we do too.

Stand Up Paddle Board

Many yachts offer the stand-up paddle board as one of the water toys. During yacht charters, water sports loving guests also love to try on this paddle board to test their balancing skills. Alternatively, they can also sit down on the paddle board and row the boat calmly. Think of this like half a kayak as the paddle does not have 2 sides. And only 1 person at a time is onboard.

Valencia Yacht offers stand-up paddle board as part of our complimentary water toy during our yacht charter. It is a very sought after sea sport well loved by our guests. This paddle board done even within only 10 minutes during yacht charter will certainly give the guests a good chartering experience.

Water Slide

Another water toy in Singapore worth considering is the water slide. This inflatable prop is a popular play tool, especially among children. If you have a family and are bringing young kids onboard, you can consider the water slide as part of the charter. Your kids who love swimming in the sea would certainly enjoy the slide very much as this brings the thrilling adventure to them as they slide down from a higher level into the sea.

Our yacht does provide water slide to our guests during their yacht rentals. Although it is not complimentary for our guests, they are certainly affordable at only $50 extra for a short thrill of fun for the children. On some occasions, young ladies with much love of fun also do try out the water slide too.

Kayaking is a low-impact, eco-friendly activity that is suitable for all ages and skill levels. It’s a great way to get some exercise while enjoying the beautiful surroundings and spotting marine life such as dolphins and turtles. Whether you’re a seasoned kayaker or a beginner, there are plenty of opportunities to paddle around Singapore’s islands, mangroves, and hidden bays.

A popular kayaking spot is the Southern Islands, a cluster of eight islands located off the southern coast of Singapore. Here, you can explore the turquoise waters and hidden beaches of St. John’s Island, Lazarus Island, and Kusu Island, which are all just a short paddle away from each other.

When kayaking in Singapore, it’s important to follow safety guidelines and wear appropriate gear, such as a life jacket and sun protection. It’s also a good idea to check the weather forecast and tides before heading out to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

In conclusion, kayaking is a wonderful way to explore the waters of Singapore and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Valencia yacht charters in Singapore also offer complimentary kayaks for guests to try out this exciting water activity and make the most of their time on the water.

Safety Considerations

There are safety tips to consider and our yacht captain and crew will certainly brief you about the water toys use before you start using them. It is of their utmost responsibility to ensure that you abide by the rules. For example, as aforementioned, wearing a life jacket when doing the kayaking is definitely a must water activity. The yacht captain is also trained in some rescue situations as they are PPCDL certified. Also, under rainy weather, some yacht charters may not be possible and definitely, playing of water toys will not be permitted.

(Read about why having a yacht captain and crew is so important)


The water toys onboard our yacht charters are certainly not limited to the above – water mat, stand-up paddle board, water slide and kayak. Additionally, you can also have a water gun to add in the water splashing fun, just like the Super Soaker gun. Or even just a simple water pistol to splash water like it’s Songkran in Thailand will do.

Valencia Yachts offer complimentary toys during all our yacht charter trips. It would certainly be fun outdoor sea experience playing with them. Contact us now to find out more.

Tips for Organising the Ultimate Yacht Party in Singapore

adminevents, Tips, Yacht Party

valencia yacht event 27

Hosting a party in Singapore is always an exciting affair, but have you ever considered taking your celebrations to the next level by hosting it on a yacht? Yacht parties offer an unparalleled experience that combines luxury, entertainment, and stunning views of Singapore’s skyline and coastline. 

In this article, we’ll provide you with some useful tips on how to organize the ultimate yacht party in Singapore. From choosing the right yacht and planning the guest list to creating the perfect party atmosphere and organizing activities and entertainment, we’ve got you covered. The scope of this article will assume that hiring a party music DJ is definitely considered. So, get ready to impress your guests and make your next celebration one that they will never forget!

Choosing The Right Yacht For Your Party Needs

Max 2 3At Valencia Yachts, we have 5 yachts for your chartering needs – Valencia, Victoria, Maximum 1, Maximum 2 and Star Of The Sea. They are all able to serve with your party needs. Depending on the size of the party audience, the different vessels cater to different group sizes.

Choosing which yacht to use for party hosting is one of the most important factors when planning a yacht party in Singapore. Here are some tips on how to choose the right yacht for your party, taking into consideration the number of guests, amenities, and budget:

Consider the number of guests

The first step in choosing the right yacht is to determine the number of guests that will be attending your party. Make sure to choose a yacht that can comfortably accommodate all your guests. You don’t want your guests feeling cramped or uncomfortable during the party. Try to get at least 30 to have the minimum atmosphere of party mood onboard. Star Of The Sea Superyacht can hold up to 150 guests for a dockside party as the capacity is larger.

Look for amenities

Make a list of amenities that you want on the yacht, such as air conditioning, sound system, karaoke system, barbecue, gathering spaces, bathrooms and cabins for resting purposes. Check with the yacht charter company to ensure that the yacht you’re considering has these amenities.

Consider the budget

Yacht charter prices vary based on the size, type, and amenities of the yacht. Determine your budget and choose a yacht that fits within your budget. Keep in mind that there may be additional costs, such as fuel, food, and beverages. Normally the charter costs for about 30 persons start from $3,000 onwards.

Type of party and entertainers

Is it a more friendly personal with social gatherings of family and friends, or is it a corporate type? Besides the party music DJ, will there be a show host (in the likes of a stand-up comedian), or even a specially invited famous entertainer onboard? There are yacht charters which have done magic shows before. 

For best practices of party organising and hosting, try to hold the party from 6pm to 10pm. The night time atmosphere is most favourable. And it’s the time of the day when it’s least hot.

Planning The Guest List And Invitations

This guest list and invitation process can be quite a lengthy process. This process of pre-event onboard the yacht involves a timeline of planning, calling, emailing, and even live publishing online (unless the party event is totally private and out of bounds to public).

Here are some tips on how to plan the guest list and create invitations that match the theme of the party:

Plan the guest list: Determine the number of guests you want to invite to your party and create a list of potential guests. Consider your budget, the size of the yacht, and the type of party when planning your guest list.

Choose a theme

Decide on a theme for your yacht party and incorporate it into your invitations. Whether it’s a nautical theme, a tropical theme, or a glamorous theme, make sure your invitations reflect the style and ambiance of the party. It can also be for Halloween party celebrations. It’s possible to charter a yacht for party boat music with Halloween costume decorations.

Create the invitations

Once you have chosen a theme, design your invitations to match the theme. Use colors, graphics, and fonts that reflect the theme of the party. Include important details, such as the date, time, location, dress code, and RSVP information.

Send out the invitations

Send out the invitations at least two to three weeks before the party to give your guests enough time to plan and RSVP. Send them through email, social media, or traditional mail, depending on your guests’ preferences.

Follow up with guests

Keep track of the RSVPs and follow up with guests who have not responded. Make sure to inform the yacht charter company of the final guest count at least a week before the party.

Attire of guests

The attire standards for a yacht music dance party has no standard requirements. However, shorts, shirts and slippers are the typical attire. Afterall, you are not allowed to put on your shoes when you are inside the yacht. You’ll be asked to keep your footwear in the shoe boxes provided by the crew. Also, wearing jeans can be up to you but usually we would not really advise it as it’ll be uncomfortable for a sunny weather (even rainy one) in Singapore. There is no 4 seasons in Singapore where cold weather is highly expected outdoors.

Important note

This is a yacht party held in the waters. It’s no longer on land anymore, so it’s important that guests don’t show up late. Just like a bus charter to Malaysia, the host who organises the party must ensure everyone who have RSVP and made payment to confirm their places are present at the dock or marina punctually.

Planning the guest list and invitations is an important part of organizing a yacht party in Singapore. By following these tips, you can create invitations that set the tone for your party and ensure that your guests have a memorable experience on the yacht.

Create The Perfect Party Atmosphere

yacht rental party scaledIn the meantime, while you are sending out invitations to your much loved guests to get them to come to your yacht party, you can start planning for the perfect party atmosphere. Creating a perfect party atmosphere in the boat helps guests make their experiences very unforgettable.

Here are some tips on how to transform the yacht into a party venue and set the mood for the party:


Choose decorations that match the theme of your party and add a festive touch to the yacht. Use balloons, banners, and streamers to decorate the yacht’s interior and exterior. You can also add flowers, candles, and other decorative elements to create a more elegant atmosphere.

Important note: Make sure before the yacht docks again after being out at sea, you must ensure that balloons are removed from the exterior. Some marinas may fine you for not doing so.


Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the mood for the party. Use colored LED lights to create a fun and festive ambiance, or opt for softer lighting to create a more intimate atmosphere. You can also use string lights to add a romantic touch to the yacht.


Choose music that matches the theme of your party and appeals to your guests’ tastes. Create a playlist that includes a mix of upbeat and slower songs, and make sure to have a sound system that can accommodate the size of the yacht and the number of guests.

By incorporating these elements into your party planning, you can create the perfect party atmosphere on a yacht in Singapore. Remember to consider the size of the yacht and the number of guests when planning decorations, lighting, and music. By doing so, you can ensure that your guests have an enjoyable and memorable experience on the yacht.

Organising The Activities

Is it going to be a music party all day or all night long? Is it going to be a totally private entertainment event, out of bounds to other uninvited? Or will there be comedy talk shows or magician tricks shows in addition to dance music?

Of course, this is dependent on the scale of the event – the budget of party planning and the planned ticket prices you are going to sell for. There can be some estimation of ticket sales too.

Choose activities that match the theme

When planning activities, make sure to choose ones that match the theme of your party. For example, if you’re hosting a beach party, consider water sports such as kayaking, paddleboarding, or even setting up a beach volleyball court on a nearby island.

Add games and competitions

Games and competitions are a great way to keep your guests engaged and entertained on a yacht party. Choose games that match the theme of your party, such as trivia or scavenger hunts, and award prizes to the winners.

Host a themed dinner party

Consider hosting a themed dinner party on your yacht to add a touch of elegance to your celebration. You can work with the yacht charter company to arrange a gourmet dinner with a menu that matches the theme of your party. When it comes to yacht food and drinks, you can either do your own packeted food or food catering, or you can do a BBQ food party as well.

Planning the refreshments

Planning food and drinks is important for any yacht party. Create a menu that matches the theme of your party and takes into account your guests’ dietary requirements. Consider the number of guests and plan for enough food and drinks to last throughout the party.

Yacht Party Etiquette Considerations

Yacht party etiquette is an essential aspect of ensuring that your guests feel comfortable and the party runs smoothly on a yacht in Singapore. Here are some tips on yacht party etiquette to keep in mind when hosting a yacht party:

Safety First

Safety is of utmost importance when it comes to yacht parties. Make sure to brief your guests on the safety rules before the party starts. This includes the location of safety equipment and procedures in case of an emergency. Please avoid jumping into the sea if the captain and crew do not permit. In case of drowning, there will be lots of consequences to bear. The captain and crew staff are always on standby should any occurrences ever take place.

Learn about the importance of having captain and crew onboard the yacht

Respect the yacht

When hosting a yacht party, it’s important to respect the yacht and keep it clean and tidy. Make sure your guests do not leave any trash behind, and avoid wearing shoes that can scratch or damage the yacht’s surface.

Consider your guests’ comfort

Make sure your guests feel comfortable on the yacht. Provide ample seating and shade if necessary, and ensure that there are enough snacks, drinks, and refreshments available. Also, consider the weather and prepare for changes in temperature or weather conditions. That’s why it’s so important to check the yachts for the amenities available. Valencia Yachts allow viewings to be done beforehand so you can decide whether which yacht is suitable.

Be mindful of noise levels

Be respectful of other boats and yachts in the vicinity and keep noise levels under control. Remember that loud music or shouting can disturb other boaters and yacht owners.

Don’t overdo it

While it’s tempting to go all out on a yacht party, it’s important to remember that safety and comfort come first. Avoid over-serving alcohol and ensure that your guests are not too intoxicated to enjoy the party or handle themselves safely on the yacht.

By following these tips on yacht party etiquette, you can ensure that your guests have a comfortable and enjoyable experience on the yacht party in Singapore. Remember that safety, respect, and consideration for others are key to making your yacht party a success.

Water Sport Or Outdoor Activities You Can Do While Island Hopping In Singapore

adminevents, Yacht Party

Island hopping in Singapore would not be complete without these activities

Are you interested in getting on some water boat tours around the Southern Islands of Singapore for a short escapade or a weekend retreat? Valencia Yachts provides island hopping charter services for all interested guests. We will bring you around the islands in the Southern Island archipelago after set sailing from Sentosa island area.

However, you might have some queries on what to expect during the island hopping Singapore tours. This blog post covers some topics of interests, such as the activities you can do, the crew hospitality service, price of yacht charter and booking procedures.

What To Expect During Island Hopping Tours

In the island hopping tours, you can expect a watery and windy adventure to sail to and fro the Southern Islands of Singapore. En route from Sentosa, you’ll mainly expect to visit these islands – Lazarus Island, St John’s Island, Pulau Hantu and Kusu Island. Sisters Island is currently unavailable as it’s closed for development. But we do expect to visit the island from 2024 onwards when it’s ready again.

Image of Lazarus Island from Valencia Yacht charter

Lazarus Island has many sea sports adventurers. Kayaking is often a favourite sport.

Usually, our first stop is at Lazarus Island. This is where we can do some adventurous water activities, which we will mention below. The yacht stops very nearby Kusu and St John’s in the vicinity too. However, if you wish to get to Pulau Hantu or to another spot in the sea, you’ll have to inform the captain and crew in advance. This is so long as the yacht charter meets the duration requirements and is not in the zones that are out of bounds to normal visitors.

What Can You Do With Our Yacht Charter Services

Many variety of tasks – ranging from the easiest to the most difficult activities can be done in our yacht charter services. Being in the business for more than 7 years now, Valencia Yachts has done many boat charters for our guests.

You can appreciate the windy sea breeze blowing on your face, wear your sunglasses to view the sunset, take photographic selfies or views of the sceneries, or even simply sleep under the shelter of the catamaran. Our yacht charter services can bring you the warmth with our yacht crew services, led by the yacht captain. As long as you observe yacht safety rules and Singapore maritime and environmental laws, you are certainly good to go to enjoy your much needed water trip.

Activities Onboard

Here are the various activities you can do onboard:

Normal Sightseeing

While chartering a yacht in Singapore, there are several sightseeing activities you can enjoy. You can start by exploring the city skyline from the water, taking in iconic landmarks such as Marina Bay Sands and the Merlion. You can also cruise along the Singapore River and observe the historic buildings and bustling city life. If you want to escape the city, head to the nearby islands of Sentosa and Lazarus Island for a day of relaxation and beach activities. Finally, you can end your day by watching the spectacular sunset over the horizon.

Jumping Into Water

The short clip below is quite self explanatory. In our charter in late February 2023, we brought our guests and they were happily playing with the waters by jumping into it.

@valenciayachts Jumping into the water happily and bravely #valenciayachts #lazarusislandsingapore #singaporesea ♬ Let’s Do This – Outskrts

Stand Up Paddle

Our yachts have stand up paddleboards for you to play with too. But you need the lifejackets while doing it, in accordance with maritime laws.


This is one of the most favourite water sports from the yacht. We did a stop by near Lazarus Island. Our guests played the kayak with the lifejacket on.

Water Mat Playing

A simple floating on the sea would be to use the water mat to play. You can just “sleep” on it while letting the sun shine onto your face. Or you can simply play along with the water while on the water mat.

Chartering a yacht in Singapore also provides ample opportunities for fishing enthusiasts. You can charter a yacht and set off to the waters surrounding the island, which are home to a variety of fish species such as barracuda, snapper, and groupers.

Alternatively, you can go deep sea fishing for bigger catches such as tuna and marlin. Fishing equipment such as rods and bait can be rented on board or brought along. You can also enjoy a barbecue on the yacht using your fresh catch, making for a memorable fishing experience.

If you don’t have the mandatory PADI license to go diving, then try out snorkeling. But you have to bring along your snorkeling gear which is the goggles. See if you can spot any cute or colourful marine life in the sea.

Personalised Or Customised Activities

Of course, besides any outdoor or sea sports activities, normally guests book our yacht charters for personalised or corporate custom activities. Personal activities include birthday, wedding celebrations like pre-wedding phototaking and wedding parties, friends and family bonding social outings. Companies also do corporate events, such as company retreats. Some of our charters do overnight charters to Anambas and Tioman Islands.

Price Of Our Charters

Our yacht charters are quite cheap and affordable for the luxury you can get onboard. With this luxury yacht rental in Singapore, you will definitely get a great bargain for the fees you pay for your charters. The cheapest is about $800++ for Victoria charters for 1 to 5 persons. There are other activities like BBQ services powered by gas grilles so you can grill seafood to your own content. (Read about the various food catering opportunities onboard a yacht)

Types Of Food Catering For Yacht Dinner

adminevents, Yacht Party

types of food catering

Do you want to enjoy a food barbecue onboard a yacht while it sails around the seas of Singapore? Do you wish to have an indoor dining activity so you can network around and chit chat to get to know each other? Do you want to have some party such as a birthday, company or family gathering or celebration, along with good eats to make it less dull? 

Or you might just wish to avoid having empty stomachs during the charter trips? In this post, we will show you various types of food which you can consider before you physically get onboard. Do you fear that there are certain food types which are restricted? Don’t worry, as we ensure that all the below food options cater to halal requirements (except alcoholic drinks).

Barbecue Seafood 

A seafood BBQ is a popular choice for yacht charters in Singapore. You can have a variety of seafood like prawns, squid, fish, and crab grilled on board the yacht. 

This is indeed the top choice for food caterers who charter our yachts. Some of the seafood come from catches during their fishing charter trips too.

Most seafood are ordered raw and cooked while onboard using the BBQ pits which are gas-grilled. At our yachts, the BBQ pits are available in the more outdoor exposed flybridge. This is where our guests usually gather around to have their seafood grilled to much delightful taste.

Satay Skewers

satay barbecue for yacht charters jpgSatay skewers are a great option for a yacht charter in Singapore! As a popular local dish, satay consists of marinated meat (usually chicken, beef, or mutton) skewered and grilled, and served with a peanut dipping sauce. 

Satay skewers are easy to eat on a yacht and can be enjoyed as a snack or as part of a larger meal, including other BBQ favourites like seafood and chicken wings. And they are also easy to order from various food catering businesses in Singapore. Many sell in sticks of 30 and above. This is mainly because one can easily chew off at least 3 easily.

Spaghetti And Gratin

Besides getting raw uncooked food, it is also possible to get food that is readily made and even cooked beforehand as well. We have our crew, some of whom possess great culinary skills. They are also well trained in yacht hospitality, with service standards comparable to those of hotel ones.

Though this applies more to superyacht, we have experienced this before with our spaghetti and gratin, served to the dining table. Our guests happily enjoyed the gratin and even remarked that the spaghetti, which was aglio olio, is a healthy meal with the use of the olive oil. Star Of The Sea superyacht has an indoor dining table which corporations can use for some chill out or serious business networking gathering. At this table, consumption of the spaghetti and gratin is also more possible with the convenient ambience and ease of dining.

High Tea

If you want to have a luxurious yacht charter experience, you can opt for a high tea. You can have a selection of tea, scones, sandwiches, and cakes served in a stylish and elegant manner. 

This English food tradition has been popular in Singapore since English colonial times but it doesn’t fade away even in the waters. And it’s actually simple to munch while sitting at the dining table to network. Even in the smaller yachts, you can take a piece at a time and chew while chit chatting with others in a social setting. 

Not only are they easy to munch with some hot tea, they taste sweet with delight and I am sure kids surely love them. Valencia Yachts have assisted our guests during their charters for high tea food catering before. You can check with us.

Gourmet Sandwiches And Wraps

Do you want another European style, besides Italian and British? Some French gourmet is simple for your eating pleasures onboard. You can have gourmet sandwiches and wraps with halal meats like chicken or beef, along with vegetarian options.

Chicken Wings

barbecue chicken wings jpgHow about some delicious chicken wings, which have long been the hallmark of BBQ food on land? Chicken wings are a popular and easy-to-eat option for a yacht charter in Singapore. They can be served as a BBQ dish, grilled on board the yacht, or ordered from a food catering service as a ready-made option. Chicken wings can be marinated with various flavors like soy sauce, honey, BBQ, and chili to create a range of delicious tastes. They are also easy to eat with your hands, making them a perfect finger food for guests to enjoy while relaxing on board the yacht.

You can simply order raw chicken wings, then bring them onboard the yacht to marinate them. Afterwards, you can help to barbecue them on the grilles and attach them to skewers for easier eating.

If you choose to have chicken wings as part of your food catering service, you can opt for a variety of sides to complement them, like fries, coleslaw, or salad. If you are planning to grill them on board the yacht, be sure to check that you have a suitable grill or BBQ equipment, and that the yacht has sufficient space and safety measures in place. Overall, chicken wings are a great option for a yacht charter as they are easy to prepare, flavorful, and perfect for casual dining on the water.


Food catering onboard the yacht for your yacht dinner is certainly valuable. They can be good for celebrations for all sorts – birthday, wedding, corporate dinner and dance, and even a romantic dinner date. With so many readily made food options and even raw food barbecue ideas, it is certainly not difficult to get such food catering services to your destination. In Singapore itself, there are many food catering services that offer directly to the customers to bring food onboard the yachts. 

One15 Marina and Keppel Marina are some of the yacht docking places nearby the central urban areas. GrabFood, Food Panda or Deliveroo sometimes are able to assist on your food delivery options, if you need to order from them by all means, depending on what food restaurants you wish to order from.

How To Enjoy Inside The Yacht In Singapore During Yacht Rental In 2023

adminevents, Yacht Party

Yacht rental at Valencia Yachts is certainly fun and enjoyable with ways to do it. Read about how to gain enjoyable experience onboard.

Do you picture yourself living in a yacht for a while? Besides basking in the sunshine, feeling soothed by the breezing winds and enjoying the view of the seaside waves, yacht charters have more to offer inside their sheltered facilities, such as bedrooms, bathrooms, karaoke system, dining table and even a jacuzzi spa pool. How about doing some fishing, partying with music, holding corporate events, birthday parties or even wedding events?

Sounds fun right? Yes. But it is not far-fetched. Renting a private yacht in Singapore is dead possible!

It is a common misconception that yacht chartering is out of reach to many common folks. You do not need to travel all the way to St Tropez in France and enjoy the yachting lifestyle like the Kardashians. Singapore has such boating lifestyle options for you. Even in Singapore, there are options for you to charter out the yacht to sail or stay docked for a while. 

Here is some of the information of the yacht chartering expectations:

Duration Of Yacht Chartering

The normal duration of the yacht charters usually lasts 4 hours long. Both weekdays and weekends are applicable for yacht charter sail. You can charter and sail out to the sea for 4 hours, at any time of the day between 9am and 8pm. Normally, the yacht does island hopping programs around the Southern Islands, such as Lazarus and Kusu Island.

Overnight stay as extension is also possible. With 6 bedrooms inside the yacht in all, it’s perfect for a stay in the yacht like a mini cruise trip. The private cabins provide all you need for basic lodging necessities, including bathing, sleeping and other privacy matters, all adrift even in the middle of the sea.

Where The Yacht Sails To During Yacht Charters

Yacht charters do sail around the Singapore waters if you take the usual 4-hour boat charter. Typically, our yachts sail to the Southern Islands. You can enjoy photo and video taking of the view, including the Singapore city skyline, and even starry skies at night.

If under thunderstorm weather, when the yachts are not safe to sail out, the yachts would be docked at the jetty areas.

Island hopping charter program is also available as it sails within the seas of our country, Singapore. You do not need any additional item such as the passport to go through immigration checking processes. We are only getting to the other islands, such as Lazarus, Kusu, St John’s and other islands in the Southern Islands territory.

If you wish to get overnight extensions more than 4 hours, then consider sailing out to the foreign islands outside Singapore territory. They are Anambas in Indonesia and Tioman in Malaysia.

Yacht Capacity Limit

The maximum person limit inside the private yacht is only 12 persons. This is in accordance with the marine laws of Singapore by Marine Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). 


How To Enjoy Inside The Yacht

Besides enjoying the cooling and soothing sea breeze and the warm sunshine, you can enjoy life inside the private yacht in many other ways. 

  • Wedding / solemnization
  • Birthday party celebrations
  • Family bonding
  • Dinner cruises
  • Corporate events

Wedding / Solemnization

This once-in-a-lifetime moment where couples get married aboard the luxurious yacht is a memorable occasion to mark on the calendar. Families and the married couples can take photographs and videographs to celebrate this joyous occasion with the romantic sunset in the backdrop. Well, even if it’s not the actual marriage, imagine this alternative – couples can do some proposals together with the sunset as well!

Birthday Party Celebrations

Do you want to celebrate you or your friend’s birthday in a very unique way? Yacht can help you to organise birthday parties onboard as we allow food and drinks with some DJ party music.

Family Bonding

How about having a relative gathering to bond by the sea with some dinner or light snacks? Doing gatherings like these by the sea will make your family gathering a very memorable experience!

Cabins are present in the yacht. They are good for private family matters with bathrooms attached. They meet the expectations of the likeness of the hotel rooms on land or the cruise cabins in the bigger ocean. 

Dinner Cruises

A memorable and romantic dinner with your loved one can enable you to view the romantic sunset. Plus, you can chill with some drinks too.

Corporate Events

Team Building

Team building activities by corporations to hold some weekend retreats with games and sharing sessions are made possible in our yacht charters. It provides opportunities for management and senior leadership to get to know their employees and staff better too.

VVIP Client Hosting

Do you hail from luxury industries, such as wealth management or luxury retail memberships, where client relationship management matters a lot more? VVIP Client Hosting is what we do as part of our yacht charter recommendations. This is wonderful as you make them feel special, honoured and wanted as your clients as you continue to provide quality service to them.

Corporate Party Celebrations

Corporations can afford some weekend or off day getaways as a group. It is like team building but without any games, just chilling by the ocean. Sometimes this can be a thematic type of corporate event like Christmas, Dinner and Dance, or even a new CEO inauguration celebration.

7 Wet Weather Yacht Activities Even During Rainfall


There are wet weather yacht activities you can do onboard as there are indoors too

Singapore is a country with a huge area of tropical rainforest. During the monsoon seasons, it is not uncommon not to experience rainy weather. As of now late February 2023, since the beginning of the recent Chinese New Year about a month ago, there has been rain almost every day. Sometimes, there are thunderstorms too.

What To Expect From Rainy Weather

Yacht chartering is quite an outdoor activity. You sail out in the boats into the vast open sea under sky and clouds. So, it is inevitable that the yachts are exposed to the wet rainfall when the wet weather occurs.

So what happens to your yacht charter during rainy weather? Is it going to spoil your much loved and much planned-for yacht activities? Do you need to ask for a refund since it is going to rain?

Sailing of the yacht is up to the captain’s call. The Captain is in charge of determining the next course of action and evaluating the weather. His choice is final and cannot be changed. As a well-trained skipper, he knows how to assess the weather to decide on proceeding with the yacht.

Will Guests Get Refunds On Rainy Weathers

The captain will issue rescheduling vouchers to the guests who are present if the charter cannot continue. Guests who do not show up are deemed to be non-attendants and will not receive a refund.

Yacht Charters For All Ages During Rainy Weather

Even if it rains very heavily, there are still many activities you can do onboard the yacht during charters. In fact, they are so suitable for a group of people so that you don’t have to be lonely during the sail. They are great for team bonding or team building sessions too.

Karaoke Leisure

karaoke luxury yacht rental singapore 2 scaledFirst and foremost, we have the indoor karaoke singing set, with the latest updates of hits of all languages – English, Mandarin, Malay, Cantonese, Korean etc. The best part is that this karaoke room is under shelter. You don’t have to worry about being soaked in the rain at all!

Our Maximum 2 yacht has a karaoke function with beautiful yellowish lights in the ambience. There is also a small kitchen with a sink to do some simple cooking if you want to. This function room can be used for other team activities too. The setting is perfect for other celebration types – birthday parties, pre-wedding bachelor parties, corporate functions – you name it.

Onboard Star Of The Sea, there is also a ktv set in the upper deck of the superyacht ship. That is also a chill out place, although the main amenity of that area is the karaoke. But nevertheless, it is really a great indoor activity for all ages of the guests to carry out when the outdoor weather is not ideal.

Board Games / Puzzles

There is usually a good selection of popular board games, including puzzle games, for kids, teens, and adults on yachts. Pictionary, Monopoly and many other board games are possible within the confines of the yacht perimeters. In fact, these board gaming sessions are very good for team bonding among corporations. Non-business social networking, even if it is for singles matchmaking, can indulge in these puzzle games to create an atmosphere of ‘mini romance’ as well.

Cooking Lessons

It’s a terrific idea for you to organise some new recipe food sessions, subject to the permissions granted by the crew to use the kitchen. You can come up with a new cocktail or appetizer with the help of the chef. But be sure to check for clearance with the crew in advance in order to be able to use the kitchen. The kitchens onboard our yachts are mainly used by the crew staff. Normally, guests utilise the BBQ pit instead, but half of the deck are outdoors and very susceptible to being drenched under wet weather conditions.

Corporate Team Meetings

Do you want to have only corporate team meetings onboard the yacht? Well, you can definitely do with the dining table that is set up for meetings inside Star Of The Sea. There are individual chairs to facilitate corporate sessions too. In the Valencia Yacht and Maximum Yachts, the tables are smaller with large cushion seats but they are also suitable for corporate retreat events with some team meeting sessions to discuss the future plans and directions too.

Yoga Sessions

A one-of-a-kind and energizing experience can be doing yoga on a yacht in the rain. In accordance with yoga’s holistic philosophy, the rain can induce feelings of rejuvenation and renewal. You’ll also be able to see nature’s beauty in a new light as the rain changes the scenery and creates a peaceful and ethereal atmosphere.

Art Jamming

Art jamming is a fun and creative activity that is perfect for groups looking to bond and express their creativity. While it’s typically done in a studio or an outdoor space, art jamming can also be done indoors onboard a yacht.

Yachts provide the perfect setting for an art jamming session. The spacious and luxurious interiors offer a comfortable and relaxed environment that is conducive to creativity. Plus, the scenic views of the sea and coastline provide the perfect inspiration for your artistic endeavors.

You can set up a mobile art studio onboard the yacht, complete with easels, canvases, paint, and brushes. You can choose from a variety of art styles, such as painting, drawing, or even sculpting. The professional crew onboard the yacht can provide you with refreshments and snacks, so you can focus on creating your masterpiece. Whether you’re a seasoned artist or a beginner, art jamming onboard a yacht is a unique and enjoyable activity that is perfect for any group.

Wine Appreciation

This wine appreciation activity is possible for audiences above the ages of 18 upwards. It is a good way to bond people with like-minded interests in the different types of wines together.

Durian Parties

What better than holding durian parties onboard a yacht. But there must be a clause because not everybody welcomes the smell of lingering durians. And if it is held indoors without much exposure to outdoor air, the durian smell inside the yacht can even be more suffocating. Nonetheless, as many people in Singapore do appreciate durian tasting, it wouldn’t hurt to hold durian parties, especially during the peak durian seasons between May and July.

Moving On

Chartering with Valencia Yachts will definitely bring you lasting memories, be it rain or shine. Even indoors, you can expect top notch hospitality from our service crew and captain. As a yacht charter is a rather more private type of event, compared with a mega cruise, the captain and the rest of the yacht staff would be more willing to go the extra mile to provide better customisable services to you. Charter with Valencia Yachts today and enjoy the hospitality, even under wet weather!

Guide To Fishing Charters In Singapore During Your Boat Trips


Fishing charter trips can be made possible in our Singapore trips

Are you looking for fishing charter Singapore trips? Are you game for some adventurous fishing trips in the waters of Singapore? 

Fishing trips can be done easily on a boat trip. All you need is your own fishing rods. Rather than fishing only at Bedok or Sembawang jetties, why not charter a yacht out to try out some hobby fishing in the deep waters around the Singapore mainland?

Valencia Yachts can do yacht charters for you to do some leisure fishing too.

Best Time For Fishing In Singapore

Fishing in Singapore can be one of the most rewarding activities for both experienced and novice anglers. Depending on the type of fish you are looking to catch, the best time for fishing in Singapore can vary.

Typically, the best time of fishing is in July. The Southern Islands, which is the place where our yachts typically sail to, are reamed with many fish types – Parrotfish, Groupers, Sweetlips, Coral Trout, Perch, Bream, Snappers and Trevallies. Many of them are often very voracious at this time and are waiting to get hooked to your fish lines.

Finally, anglers may also want to consider fishing in the early mornings or late evenings. During these times, the water is typically the most still, making it easier to spot fish. Additionally, the early morning and late evening light helps to attract more fish to the surface.

No matter what time of year it is, fishing in Singapore is a rewarding and enjoyable experience. By understanding the best time to fish and being prepared with the right gear, anglers can have a successful and fulfilling time on the water.

Best Offshore Fishing Places In Singapore

Set sailing from Sentosa Cove, Valencia Yachts can bring you to various offshore islands for fishing. You might have heard of fishing only at some reservoirs or jetty areas, since the rivers are legally out of bounds to anglers.

The majority of us are familiar with the well-known islands that were taught in school, such as St. John’s Island, which was once a cholera quarantine area; During the ninth month of the lunar calendar, thousands of worshippers flock to Kusu Island, as well as Pulau Ubin, where you can cycle, trek, and eat fresh seafood.

Lazarus Island

Between St. John’s and Kusu Island, this was once a small island. Lazarus Island is now much larger and has a bridge that connects it to St. John’s Island after land reclamation. The island also has two lagoons, which draw a lot of boaters every weekend to party there. It has electric power, a water supply, and walking paths, making it one of the most developed islands.

 A protected bay was formed by St. John’s and Lazarus Island, making it ideal for a fish nursery. a wide range of juvenile fish, including groupers, tusk fish, cardinal fish, rabbit fish, lizard fish, fusiliers, eels, stargazers, snappers, scads, herrings, wrasses, breams, and others. was caught during the island’s Beginner Angler’s Course.

Pulau Semakau

Semakau Island, Singapore’s first and only off-shore landfill, was once home to a small fishing village. Ash from waste incineration plants makes up the majority of the landfill. You might believe that the surrounding waters are filthy and hostile to marine life. In contrast, the ecosystem is flourishing in this location. The Singapore government puts in a lot of effort to make sure that the activities at the landfill do not harm the environment.

In the south of the island, deep-sea cliffs and rocky terrain house large groupers, tusk fish, and snappers that can fight fiercely.

Fishing Trips Onboard Our Yachts

Renting A Yacht With Your Pets


Read about the pet friendly yacht tips in Singapore

Are you in Singapore looking for pet friendly yacht Singapore for your next charter? Are you looking to sail the seven seas with your furry family in tow? 

Look no further! Renting a yacht while bringing along your pets is becoming increasingly popular amongst pet owners in Singapore. Allow yourself and your pet an opportunity to explore the open water and enjoy a relaxing getaway together! 

With plenty of intriguing places around the island, renting a yacht may be just what you need for some much-deserved time off with beloved companionship by your side. There are some tips on renting your pet to charter a yacht and sail around the Singapore waters. Read on to find out below.

Difficulties Of Bringing Your Pet Onboard

Do you love your furry paw friends so much that you want the best for your pet? A yacht trip would be the greatest way to reward your pets for their good help. However, we understand how challenging it is to search for cruises or ships that are pet-friendly in Singapore. That is why we can bring you a private yacht charter for you and your pets, even if it is more than a family, even if it is part of a community event for animals. Whether it is a dog, cat or rabbit, as long as they don’t make a jumbo size that will make the boat capsize, it is sufficient capacity for the yacht to hold all onboard. 

Taking Your Dog On A Yacht Trip

Singapore has many animal lovers who rear pets at home. These pet owners also include the many expats who hail from Western countries, such as the UK and USA, who are working here. Among the pets, dogs are the most common pets in Singapore, as per common understanding. According to statistics in the below link, slightly more than half of pet owners rear dogs in Singapore, as of January 2022.


There is no reason not to bring your best friend along if you enjoy boating. The fact of the matter is that dogs adore traveling with their owners. The majority of dogs enjoy the water, are natural swimmers, and have very little fear of it (except for bath time!).

Considering The Comfort Of Your Dog

The question of whether or not your dog will actually enjoy their charter experience is probably the most crucial one you need to ask yourself. Keep in mind that dogs can experience motion sickness in the same way that humans can, so even if you’ve mastered housetraining, your dog might still make a mess if they’re sick.

When dogs are confined, they can quickly become bored, so it’s important to bring things to keep them occupied and make sure they can properly stretch their legs and get some exercise when they disembark. However, if your dog is new to warmer climates, they should drink plenty of water and stay away from surfaces that are too hot for their paws.

Safety Of Pets Onboard

When it comes to bringing pets onboard a yacht charter, safety should always be a top priority. Firstly, it’s important to make sure your pet is well-behaved and trained to follow basic commands. This can prevent accidents or damage to the yacht. Secondly, pets should be secured at all times, either in a crate or on a leash. This can prevent them from running off or falling overboard, which could be dangerous or even deadly.

It’s also important to bring along all necessary items for your pet, including food, water, bowls, and any necessary medications. A supply of plastic bags should also be carried to dispose of pet waste. Additionally, pets should be protected from the sun and elements. A shade or shelter should be provided, and pets should be kept hydrated at all times.

Finally, it’s crucial to be aware of local regulations and laws regarding pets on yachts. Some destinations may have restrictions on the type of pet or breed allowed on board, or may require specific documents for entry. Checking these regulations ahead of time can help ensure a safe and smooth yacht charter experience for both you and your furry friend.

Cost Of Yacht Rental For Pets Onboard

Now, you’re probably asking the prices of yacht rental if you wish to bring your pets onboard. Well, the yacht charter rates are pretty affordable in Singapore standards. We bet you and your friends or family members will certainly enjoy our rates.

Prices of our yachts start from $1,600 onwards for a weekday 4-hour charter. During the charter, you can enjoy the scenery of Singapore city skyline and island hop around the Southern Islands, along with your beloved pet. Moreover, there are also onboard yacht activities, such as BBQ food catering, karaoke and even simple chill gatherings. It’s a very good bargain for a 10-person charter by the way. And there are many yacht activities which you can do. They are good for wedding parties, birthday party celebrations, corporate gatherings, such as team building sessions and dinner-and-dance parties, family bonding sessions and even Meetup.com gatherings as part of social networking activities. What’s more, if food catering is not enough, you can also bring your own snacks and bottled drinks onboard.

Moving On

On a charter yacht, traveling with your dog can be an amazing experience. The islands of Lazarus or Kusu will be discovered by your dog, and he or she will enjoy the sun by your side in the water. Therefore, if you decide to bring your dog along, you can expect a truly family-friendly vacation that you will never forget.

As you can see, there are many factors to consider when deciding whether or not to bring your pet aboard a yacht. From the cost of rental and potential size restrictions, to the safety hazards and possible discomfort for your animal, it is important to do your research before making any decisions. If you are still interested in bringing your pet on board a yacht with us, please do not hesitate to reach out and contact us below. We would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have or provide more information about our services. Thank you for reading!

adminevents, Yacht Party

Read about the various yacht team building activities corporations can consider on a corporate yacht chartering trip

Conducting Team Building Activities Onboard The Yacht In Singapore

In order for a team building activity to be effective in Singapore, it should be tailored to suit the specific goals and objectives of each individual business. For example, businesses may choose activities that focus on developing communication skills or problem solving abilities, while others might opt for activities that foster a sense of team spirit. Furthermore, it is important to ensure that the activity is fun and engaging so that participants remain motivated throughout. By taking the time to carefully select the right activity for each business, team building activities can be used to maximize their effectiveness and bring lasting benefits.

Even onboard the yacht, while sailing out to the seas, there are team building activities which company staff can organise and participate in. You don’t necessarily have to jump into the sea, unless you want to (with some safety protocols to observe of course)!

Types Of Team Building Activities

Here are the suitable team building activities for corporations on board the yacht in Singapore:

Get Knotted

This game of fun involves strategy, communication, leadership and teamwork. They have to compete to untie a dead knot in the shortest period of time. Coordination and team communication is expected throughout this game.

String Me Along

Ropes are common use in boats. But how about using a piece of rope to scribble like a pen? This game is played by using strings to control the pen to write on a piece of paper. Teamwork and coordination is heavily expected of this game. The team that finishes first in the writing challenge is victorious.

There are many fun team building ideas which you can find here – https://valenciayachts.com/5-fun-ideas-for-team-building-activities-on-a-yacht/

How Much Is The Team Building Price Package Onboard Our Chartered Yacht

The yachts are not out of reach to ordinary folks in Singapore.

As long as you have groups of 10 and above, you will certainly find the yacht chartering affordable. (Check out the rates here)

A Word Of Caution

All these free team building activities sound fun and fruitful for a relaxing work or business experience right? There are some things to note while team building as some laws have to be abided:

Safety Of Marine Vessel

  • Safety onboard the yacht must be observed at all times. Do not play till you accidentally fall into the sea and get drowned. Even if you wish to jump into the sea for leisure, ensure the yacht is still as a moving yacht may cause injury if the rudders accidentally slice you
  • We cannot guarantee there are trained lifeguards around although the skippers can assist should you accidentally fall into the sea and are unable to swim

Proper Disposal Of Waste Materials

All marine vessels, regardless of the size, be it a catamaran, cruise or a canoe, have to abide by the rules and regulations set by the Marine Port of Authority Singapore (MPA), National Environmental Agency (NEA) and the Ministry of Sustainability and Environment (MSE). 

According to non-profit organisation Ocean Conservancy (2018), which coordinates the International Coastal Cleanup, the top 3 litter found in the Singapore coastal beaches are foam pieces, cigarette butts and plastic pieces (source). The 4th most found litter was the plastic beverage bottles which numbered around nearly 12,600. 

We are committed to prevention of pollution to the sea so as to prevent harm to marine life and the environment. Fines would start from $300 if you were to get caught by any law enforcers littering into the sea. Please ensure that you don’t deliberately throw litters into the sea while onboard the yacht.

What’s Next

In conclusion, team building activities are an essential part of any successful business in Singapore. By providing employees with the opportunity to work together towards common goals and build relationships, these activities can help businesses to improve communication and collaboration, boost morale, and increase productivity. Moreover, when carefully chosen to suit the specific goals of each business, team building activities can have a lasting impact on the overall performance of the company.

Valencia Yachts has a reputation for team building activities too. Our past history of yacht corporation activities makes us a one-stop marine vessel for team activities if you wish to consider them outside the shores of Singapore. Contact us now in the form below to find out how we can assist you in the team building onboard our yacht for charters.

The Importance Of Having A Captain And Crew On Your Yacht Charter In Singapore


Having a captain and crew onboard, rather than using your own PPCDL to steer the boat, is important not only for safety. There are many other considerations.

Yacht chartering in Singapore is an increasingly popular way to experience the beauty of the city-state’s coastline and islands in Singapore’s seas. Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway, a corporate event, or a family vacation, a yacht charter can provide a unique and luxurious experience.

However, to fully enjoy your time on the water, it’s important to have a captain and crew on board. At least, there’s some law and order inside the marine vessel, which is also subject to the laws of MPA and other maritime laws of Singapore. In this blog post, we’ll explain why.

Safety And Security

The captain of a yacht charter is responsible for the safety and security of all passengers on board. They are in charge of the vessel and must ensure that it’s in good working condition before setting sail.

They also need to be aware of the weather and sea conditions, and make any necessary adjustments to the itinerary. In case of an emergency, the captain is the one who makes the final decision and takes the necessary action.

A crew trained in first aid and emergency procedures is also essential. They can provide immediate assistance in case of injury or illness, and can also help to evacuate passengers in case of an emergency. This is particularly important in Singapore, where the waters can be choppy and unpredictable, especially during a rainy weather.

Not forgetting the COVID-19 pandemic is still on (as of January 2023), so the crew and captain have to take extra precautions against any infections by at least preparing test kits or flu medicine and others on standby.

Navigation And Experience

The captain of a yacht charter is also responsible for navigating and operating the vessel. They need to have a thorough knowledge of the local waters and weather conditions, and be able to make quick decisions in case of unexpected situations. They must also be familiar with the vessel’s navigation and communication equipment, and be able to use them efficiently.

Having a crew with experience and knowledge of the local waters is also important. They can provide valuable insights into the best places to visit, and recommend activities that are suitable for the weather and sea conditions. They can also help to plan the itinerary, ensuring that passengers have a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Luxury And Comfort

A yacht charter is a luxury experience, and the captain and crew play a vital role in providing this. They can prepare meals and serve drinks, ensuring that passengers are well-fed and hydrated throughout the trip. They can also arrange activities, such as fishing, snorkeling, and island-hopping, and provide equipment and instructions.

The captain and crew can also help to create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere on board. They can play music, provide blankets and cushions, and set up a comfortable seating area. They can also provide information on the sights and landmarks that can be seen from the yacht.

Valencia Yachts has a list of yacht amenities for the above, such as the cabin, karaoke set and BBQ pits. They are designed also for the 4-hour and overnight charters.

Moving On

A yacht charter in Singapore is a unique and luxurious way to experience the city-state’s coastline and islands. However, to fully enjoy your time on the water, it’s important to have a captain and crew on board. They are responsible for the safety and security of passengers, provide navigation and experience, and help to create a luxurious and comfortable atmosphere on board. When planning your next yacht charter, consider the value of having a captain and crew, and you’re sure to have an unforgettable experience.

5 Factors Of Getting Yacht For Rental In Singapore


The 5 factors affecting your decision on getting yacht for rental in Singapore help you make decisons better.

Are you wondering what things it takes to get a yacht for rental so that you can sail out to the seas off the Singapore island? It is so cool to enjoy the sunshine and the sea breeze with entertainment on board the yacht certainly. Even if it is a short weekend getaway in a different way, it is so good to be on the yacht.

Curious about what to do on a yacht so that you can breathe the fresh wind of the sea waves? Here are some factors you can consider when getting a yacht for rental over your rest days:

Cost Of Yacht Rental Per Day

First and foremost, we all know people would be asking the cost of renting a yacht. Though it’s not about the price of the yacht to buy, the yacht charter price is of utmost concern. Actually, yacht chartering is not so out of reach to common people. Nowadays, given the lifting of social distancing laws, there is no limit to gathering in public anymore. Of course, the yacht can only accommodate only that many people, subject to the maximum size of the yacht.

Yacht chartering already has a price itself. This only includes sailing within fixed places, like Southern Islands. You must check if the yacht chartering includes food and drinks that might be served onboard and even the home entertainment system. How about overnight staying? How many hours does this yacht charter cover only as basic?

Rental Vs Purchase Of Yacht

This is needless to say if you are only chartering a yacht for traveling out in the seas. Purchasing a yacht is out of question if you are not holding a PPCDL license to drive the boat or if you aren’t regularly using it to sail around the shores. 

It is said that many of those who own private boats in Singapore are mostly retirees, though there seems to be a rise in ownership among millennials (Read here). If you are thinking of owning the private yacht, you must consider your free time and even miscellaneous savings you can spend when sailing. How about the maintenance which can be a killer? 

Yacht chartering once a while when you are in the mood for the waters and the wind would be more than sufficient than purchasing the private yacht itself. Or you can book yachts for yacht parties to reel in the moods with drinks and music.

Footwear On Board The Yacht

When boarding the yacht, whether it’s for only a few hours or more than 24 hours out at sea, there is some etiquette to observe with regards to footwear. You should wear only flip flops because most of the time, you’ll be barefooted. Don’t wear nice working shoes or boots. For more information, check out this article for reference on footwear:


Food Consumption On Board

Of course, food and beverages are welcome on board the yacht. You need to have dinner or snacks, or else your yacht charter trips are going to be very dull. Food catering, light snacks or even barbecue with drinks in ice tubs can be possible on board the chartered yacht.

However, you are reminded to respect the sea environment so that you don’t pollute the sea by littering. If you are caught littering by the marine authorities, whether Singapore or Indonesia or Malaysia, you can be slapped with a fine penalty. The fine is about S$300.

Overnight Yacht Trips

As mentioned just now, overnight yacht trips, usually for families on board, or some corporate company retreat trips, may happen. Some would even celebrate birthdays on board the yachts.

If overnight yacht trips are important to you, you must ensure that there are sleeping rooms for being out in the sea more than a day. Although this is not a cruise, there are also cabins in the smaller yachts as well. You must ensure spacious cabins for you to have enough rest during your lethargic periods.


In conclusion, there are several factors to consider when getting a yacht for rental in Singapore. The cost of the rental is an important factor, as is whether you want to rent or purchase a yacht. It’s also important to consider what kind of footwear to wear on board and what food and beverages you’ll bring with you. If you’re planning on taking an overnight trip, make sure the yacht has appropriate sleeping accommodations. By taking these factors into consideration, you can ensure that your yacht rental experience is enjoyable and memorable.

How To Plan A Successful Yacht Chartering Itinerary In Singapore


yacht charter itinerary singapore

Singapore is a popular destination for yacht chartering, with its stunning skyline, beautiful beaches, and clear waters. Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or a corporate event, a yacht charter in Singapore can be the perfect way to experience all that the city-state has to offer.

However, planning a successful yacht charter itinerary can be a bit tricky, especially if you are new to the area. In this article, we will provide some tips on how to plan a successful yacht charter itinerary in Singapore, even by sailing around the seas of Singapore.

Decide On The Type Of Yacht Charter

The first step in planning a successful yacht charter itinerary in Singapore is to decide on the type of yacht charter you want. Singapore offers a wide range of yacht charter options, including day charters, overnight charters, and week-long charters. Day charters are the most popular option, as they allow you to experience the beauty of Singapore’s waters without committing to a longer trip. Overnight charters are perfect for those who want to experience a more relaxed and intimate setting, while week-long charters are ideal for those who want to explore more of Singapore’s islands and beaches.

Choose The Right Time Of Year

Singapore’s weather can be quite unpredictable, so it’s important to choose the right time of year for your yacht charter. The best time to explore the islands and beaches of Singapore is when the water is clear and the visibility is excellent.

There is no best time of the year actually. Some remark that June and July are the hottest months in Singapore. But June is a month-long school holiday period and you wouldn’t want to waste this opportunity to go out on a yacht charter certainly. A tip for you is to check out the weather apps for the weather forecast on the day you wish to charter and sail out. A good platform to check out the weather is this one – https://www.weather.gov.sg/mobile/home/

Consider The Size Of The Yacht

The size of the yacht you choose will depend on the number of people in your group and the activities you plan to do. If you are planning a romantic getaway or a small family vacation, a smaller yacht may be sufficient. However, if you are planning a corporate event or a larger group, you may want to consider a larger yacht with more amenities and space.

Plan Your Itinerary

Once you have decided on the type of yacht charter, the time of year, and the size of the yacht, it’s time to plan your itinerary. Some popular destinations in Singapore include Sentosa Island, Marina Bay, and the Southern Islands. Sentosa Island is a popular destination for its beaches, theme parks, and attractions, while Marina Bay is known for its stunning skyline and iconic landmarks.

The Southern Islands are a great place to explore if you are looking for a more secluded and peaceful setting. They offer a more secluded and peaceful setting for those looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Some popular options include visiting St. John’s Island, Kusu Island, and Lazarus Island. These islands are known for their beautiful beaches and clear waters, making them perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and fishing.

Check If Food Is Available Onboard

It is always important to check beforehand if food and drinks are available onboard. But here, at Valencia Yachts, we do offer the option of food catering for you. And they are not only affordable, but also delicious to give you that best chartering experience you can ever have.

There are also many other things you can bring onboard besides food. Music items like the party DJ equipment set, champagne and others are good to bring. But fret not even if you don’t have such items to bring. We have a karaoke set onboard where you can sing to your hearts’ content too!

Get The Right Insurance

Yacht chartering can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to be prepared for any eventualities. Before you set sail, make sure you have the right insurance to cover any accidents or damages that may occur while you are on board.

Footwear Onboard

Unless you have no choice as you’re coming from work, try not to wear shoes with socks, especially with laces as it is important to stay barefoot onboard the yacht. Your slippers, flippers or sandals will be placed outside the deck rooms.

In conclusion, yacht chartering in Singapore can be a wonderful way to experience the beauty of the city-state and its surrounding waters. By following these tips and planning your itinerary carefully, you can ensure that your yacht charter in Singapore is a success.

Family Bonding Tips For 2023 During Yacht Chartering – Chinese New Year And Beyond

adminevents, Tips

rent a yacht for a party

Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival, is the most important traditional holiday in Singapore. It is celebrated by Singapore’s Chinese community, which makes up around 74% of the population. During this time, families come together to celebrate and bond with one another.

One of the key traditions of Chinese New Year is the reunion dinner, which typically takes place on New Year’s Eve. Family members who live away from home, such as those working or studying in another city or country, will make the journey back to be with their loved ones. The reunion dinner is a time for families to catch up and reminisce about the past year, and to make plans for the year ahead.

Traditionally, the reunion dinner is a grand and elaborate affair, with many different dishes being served to symbolize prosperity and good luck for the coming year. Some popular dishes include fish, dumplings, and noodles. Food plays an important role during Chinese New Year and it’s significant during the reunion dinner to not only symbolize the gathering of family but also the prosperity of the upcoming year.

chinese new year reunion family bonding yacht charter singapore

After the reunion dinner, the first two days of Chinese New Year are spent visiting relatives and friends. This is known as “bai nian” in Mandarin, which means “to pay a New Year visit.” People will typically visit the most senior members of their family first, such as grandparents and parents, before visiting other relatives and friends. During these visits, it’s common to exchange gifts, such as red packets filled with money, and to catch up on the past year.

Family bonding during Chinese New Year is not limited to the Chinese community in Singapore. There is a Chinese saying 家和万事兴 meaning If a house is divided against itself, it cannot stand – “family harmonious everything prospers”. It further means that everything will go well in the face of harmonious families (learn more). Therefore, Chinese New Year family gathering is of importance to people in Singapore.

Many families in Singapore come together during this time of the year to celebrate, to bond and to share in the joy of reunion.

What To Expect In 2023 Chinese New Year And Beyond

It is 2023 now and though we are still in the midst of the pandemic, the restrictions of social distancing have been relaxed. And this is the first Chinese New Year since 2021 where we can all enjoy in group sizes limitlessly.

Do you still remember the Chinese New Year in 2021 and 2022, where we often have to gather in restricted sizes of 8 or 5 only? And we often worry about the coronavirus infections, especially the dreaded Omicron variant last year in 2022. People also often got infected with the coronavirus during the Chinese New Year 2022 – all the more we must treasure our family bonding moments this Chinese New Year in 2023 when we can mingle about in sizes larger than 10.

Yacht chartering to foster family relationships onboard is a viable option in Singapore. At times when the outdoor weather is very cold in places like China and Taiwan, the Singapore weather outside is still sunny and perfect for outdoor gathering. Onboard the yacht, you can enjoy the sunset during evening reunion dinner sessions, feel the windy sea breeze on your face and even watch beautiful wave patterns of the waters, while socializing in the vessel. There are also other unique ways of family bonding too.

Good Tips For Family Bonding Onboard The Yacht

Yacht chartering can be a great way for families to bond and create memories together in Singapore. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning a yacht charter for a family bonding experience:

  1. Choose the right yacht: When chartering a yacht, it’s important to consider the size and layout of the vessel. If you have a large family, you may want to consider a bigger yacht with multiple cabins and common areas to ensure that everyone has enough space. It’s also a good idea to look for yachts with amenities that cater to families, such as a large sun deck or a swimming platform.
  2. Plan your itinerary: Think about the activities and experiences you want to have on your yacht charter and plan your itinerary accordingly. Consider whether you want to anchor in a quiet bay or cruise along the coast, and whether you want to include swimming, fishing, or snorkeling. Plan to do activities together as a family on the yacht that you all may enjoy.
  3. Hire a professional crew: A professional crew can take care of all the details, from sailing and navigating to preparing meals and maintaining the yacht, which will allow your family to relax and focus on bonding. Consider hiring a crew that has experience with families, as they will have the skills to keep children entertained and safe.
  4. Take time to relax: Yacht chartering can be a great opportunity to disconnect from the daily grind and spend quality time with your family. Make sure to schedule in some downtime where everyone can relax, read a book or enjoy the scenery.
  5. Be mindful of safety: Always prioritize safety when sailing and ensure that everyone on board knows how to use the safety equipment and follows the crew’s instructions. Before embarking on the charter, make sure that you are aware of the rules, regulations and laws of the sea.
  6. Choose the perfect food catering: For the Chinese New Year reunion dinner, it doesn’t go without food catering options of course. Apart from sandwiches, chicken wings, satay sticks and other food options you may consider, you can also order the traditional yu sheng – the symbol of prosperity blessing which families can lo hei together.

By keeping these tips in mind, your family yacht charter can be a wonderful opportunity to bond, relax, and create memories together. The Singapore waters have much to offer in terms of scenic views, marine life and great sailing experience, and a yacht charter is the perfect way to experience them.

Moving On

In conclusion, Chinese New Year is an important time for family bonding in Singapore. The reunion dinner, visiting relatives and friends, and the lion and dragon dance are all traditions that bring families together to celebrate and bond with one another. These traditional practices not only strengthen the relationship within the family but also enhance the sense of community in Singapore.

Also, beyond Chinese New Year, 2023 has other magical family moments where you can do family bonding time in seasons like Hari Raya Puasa, Mid-Autumn Festival, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Deepavali, Christmas Day and some other festive seasons.

yacht corporate event tips

Are you looking to make your next corporate event truly unforgettable in the year 2023? Hosting a corporate event on a yacht charter in Singapore can be an amazing way to impress your clients and colleagues. Now that China (as of January 2023), has reopened its borders and its people are flocking overseas, we see many opportunities in business or corporate events that can utilise the Chinese market. Not only does a yacht provide a unique and luxurious setting, but it also allows for a range of activities and customizable options to suit your specific needs.

Read why you should host corporate events on yacht

In this blog post, we will provide tips and ideas for planning a 2023 successful corporate event on a yacht charter in Singapore. From choosing the right yacht and catering to entertainment and team-building activities, we’ve got you covered. So hop aboard and let’s get started!

Choosing The Right Yacht

First and foremost, it’s important to choose the right yacht for your event. Consider the size of your group and the duration of your trip, as well as any additional amenities you may want on board, such as a karaoke lounge, BBQ pit or sun deck. It’s also a good idea to research and compare different yacht charter companies to find the best fit for your budget and needs.

Food Catering Options

Once you’ve chosen your yacht, it’s time to start thinking about catering. While many yacht charter companies offer in-house catering options, you may also choose to bring in your own catering team or even have the event catered by a local restaurant. Be sure to consider any dietary restrictions or preferences of your guests and communicate these to your catering team.

Type Of Corporate Activities

Entertainment is another important aspect of your corporate event on a yacht charter. Will you have a DJ or live music? Will there be any team-building activities or games? Consider the theme and atmosphere of your event and choose entertainment options that align with this. It’s also a good idea to have some backup options in case of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

In addition to entertainment, consider incorporating some team-building activities into your event. A yacht charter provides a unique setting for activities such as scavenger hunts or sailing lessons. These can help to foster a sense of camaraderie and teamwork among your team members.

Besides the above, you can also do simple team bonding activities or other water sport activities like kayaking, stand up paddle board, or even fishing together. The activities can come from some informal interest groups within the company.

Yacht Decor

Decor and theme are also important considerations for your corporate event on a yacht charter. Will you go for a more formal, elegant vibe or a relaxed, beachy theme? Choose decor and theme elements that match the overall atmosphere of your event and make sure to communicate these to your yacht charter company and any vendors you may be working with.

Which Time Of The Day

Another factor to consider is the timing of your event. A morning or afternoon charter may be more suitable for a business meeting, while an evening charter allows for a more social atmosphere. Keep in mind that Singapore can be quite hot and humid, so it’s a good idea to have plenty of shade and hydration options available for your guests.

Yacht Capacity Limit

Corporations are mega in size in Singapore. Many are multinationals hailing from USA, UK, Japan and even local corporations like DBS. A department can be huge.

However, do ensure that you plan the headcount properly and that the yacht complies with the people capacity limit, which also includes the crew and captain onboard. It may only be half of the department that can come onboard the yacht. Or it can split into separate event days.

Logistical Arrangements

Finally, don’t forget the logistics of hosting a corporate event on a yacht charter. Make sure you have a clear itinerary for the day and communicate this to your guests in advance. Consider any necessary transportation arrangements and be prepared for any potential delays or issues that may arise.


By following these tips, you can plan a successful and memorable corporate event on a yacht charter in Singapore. Whether you’re looking to host a business meeting, team-building retreat, or client appreciation event, a yacht charter provides the perfect setting for any corporate occasion.

In Valencia Yachts, we provide yacht chartering services for corporate events and they are our main selling point too (Read more).
