Top 5 Water Toys Bahamas Yacht Charters are Adding in 2024

June 8, 2024

The Bahamas and water sports go hand in hand. The weather conditions in the Bahamas, with its trade winds blowing a consistent 15-25 knots and its protected shallow waters, simply set the perfect stage for a thrilling time on the water.

Because of these great conditions, wind-driven water sports, such as windsurfing, kite surfing, and sailing, are especially popular in the Bahamas, attracting many water sports enthusiasts from around the world.

But what are the best water toys for a yacht charter in the Bahamas? What do clients want? In this article, we look at 5 awesome water toys  Bahamas luxury charter yachts are adding in 2024 because clients are asking for them!

5. E-foil: a water toy that gives you the feeling of flying

Imagine flying above the water on an electric hydrofoil that hits speeds up to 45 kph. The Waydoo Flyer One Plus is currently the number 1 E-foil on the market. It is ultra-light and emissions-free, offering a futuristic ride over the seas.

E-foils are easily stored on any yacht charter, whether sailing yachts, catamarans, or larger motor yachts.

What is the difference between an E-foil, a Hydrofoils, and a Jet Board?

An E-foil is an electric surfboard that uses a hydrofoil (a wing-like structure under the water) to lift itself above the surface, giving the sensation of flying over the water.

Unlike traditional hydrofoils, which rely on wind or towing for propulsion, E-foils incorporate an electric motor controlled by a wireless remote, allowing for smooth, self-powered movement.

In contrast, jet boards or electric surfboards are motorized but remain on the water’s surface, lacking the hydrofoil component that characterizes E-Foils. The E-foil is the epitome of all! – Highest speeds, smoothest ride, electric propulsion.

The great wind conditions in the Bahamas are also great for wind-driven foils!! Many of the charter yachts in the Bahamas keep both e-foils and hydrofoils onboard.

How long does it take to learn the E-foil?

Though it might look difficult, many can start flying over the water after just a few attempts. With a one-hour lesson, most are able to handle basic maneuvers.

It is definitely an advantage if you have previously done other board-based sports, such as surfing or snowboarding, but even if you haven’t, you will get the hang of it!

3. Seabob: Everyone wants one and they are easy to store on any charter yacht

Other than Jet Skis, the Seabob is the water toy we get the most requests for.

Seabobs have been making waves in the luxury water sports market since their introduction by CAYAGO AG in 2007.

Their popularity on yacht charters has notably increased over the last decade, especially as they became known for their versatility, eco-friendly operation, and ease of use.

Why are Seabobs so popular on Bahamas yacht charters?

Imagine a high-performance electric underwater scooter that lets you swim like a dolphin. Seabobs are small, powerful units that pull you through the water at speeds up to 15 km/h over the surface and 11 km/h underwater. It is a super thrilling feeling!

And if you haven’t already heard a hundred times, the Bahamas has some of the best water in the world, full of awesome marine life. It is shallow, which is perfect for exploring the underwater world with Seabob, where you fly along just a couple of meters under the surface with good visibility to see the bottom.

Is it easy to use a Seabob?

Seabobs are remarkably easy to handle. Most users get comfortable within minutes, as the intuitive control grips allow for effortless diving and maneuvering.

2. Jet Ski: The water toy that never goes out of style

A staple for any water toy collection in the Bahamas, Jet skis offer high-speed fun and are the perfect water toy for adrenaline junkies looking to zip across the water.

Jet skis are great for exploring nearby coves or islets. Many larger charter vessels in the Bahamas now store multiple jet skis, so couples and friends can go zooming off at top speed together.

Jet Skis and Regulations

The Bahamas is super Jet Ski friendly, unlike some Caribbean destinations, like the British Virgin Islands, where there is a total ban on Jet Skis.

However, it is important to be aware of Jet Ski limitations in marine reserves where the noise of these speed devils might disturb protected marine species, such as manta rays and sea turtles. Your captain will inform you if this is the case anywhere you go.

1. Flyboard: This water toy is a must-try for any thrill seeker!!

Flyboards are becoming increasingly popular in yacht charters. They are a top pick for thrill-seekers who want to have a wild kind of fun on the water.

Imagine strapping on a board with jets underneath, powerful enough to propel you 15 meters into the air. If you want the adrenaline-filled experience of flying, this is your water sport.

BUT, Flyboarding is not just about high-flying stunts; it’s about feeling free, almost bird-like. And on a sunny day, with clear blue waters beneath and the horizon in view, it’s an absolutely unbeatable experience that’s fast becoming a highlight of many yacht charter excursions.

How long does it take to learn?

Worried it’s too complex? Don’t be. Most people can get the hang of flyboarding in just a few minutes.

Really, most beginners start flying in under 10 minutes, thanks to intuitive controls and expert guidance from instructors.

It generally takes between 20 to 30 minutes to become comfortable with the basics of maneuvering.

Who can try it?

While it’s thrilling, flyboarding is also very accessible. It’s suitable for adventurous spirits, generally above the age of 16, due to the need for some strength to manage the propulsion and balance.

However, no prior experience is necessary, making it a great choice for anyone looking to try something new and exciting.

⬇ Check out former Flyboard World Champion Gemma Weston show off her amazing stunts ⬇

Is Flyboarding Safe?

As with any extreme sport, safety is paramount. All sessions are conducted with a trained professional instructing you from the jet ski.

They control the power based on your skill level, ensuring a safe experience as you get used to flying above the water.

We had a wonderful time aboard Starting Over in Bahamas for a one-day charter. Andrea from DMA was very accommodating and extremely responsive when arranging our charter. We had some last-minute change requests and she responded immediately and provided alternative solutions for us. The crew was fun, attentive and engaging. And, wow, the food was delicious. I won’t hesitate to use DMA again on for arranging another charter. Starting Over was beautiful, very modern and the perfect size for our party of 9 for a day trip.

Charter Yacht Types

We recommend either chartering a motor yacht or catamaran for your crewed yacht charter vacation in the Bahamas. Why? The water in the Bahamas is very shallow, which greatly limits accessibility for deep-drafted yachts.

“We have seen a growing demand for luxury motor yacht charters among high-end charter guests.”
