We can’t blame you. All sorts of fascinating adventures lie just beyond the horizon, and you’ll want to be prepared to tackle them all with ease and grace.

Packing Like a Pro on Your Luxury Yacht Tour
A luxury yacht tour is no time to panic. You won’t have to fret if you remember what to pack for the ultimate adventure on the water.
1. Don’t Forget the Essentials
Your vacation will be unnecessarily stressful if you forget to bring along the basics like toiletries, medication, and travel documents. It’s a good idea to make a paper copy of your passport and driver’s license as well, and avoid calamities by packing everything in a handy waterproof drybag before you go. Having a few extra drybags in case of damp emergencies never hurts, either.
2. Consider the Weather
Research your destination ahead of time and pack weather-appropriate clothing. If you’re heading to the Caribbean, that heavy coat probably won’t be necessary. If you’re getting ready for an Icelandic expedition, don’t take sarongs and flip flops. No matter where you’re going, make sure to bring clothing which will protect you from the sun and any foul weather which may arise.
3. Choose Electronics Carefully
The saltwater environment is not kind to electronics like laptops, tablets, and phones. If you want to bring them along, invest in some durable cases to protect them or stow them in your extra drybags. Cameras are a good idea, but make sure yours is waterproof so you aren’t limited on where and when you can snap pictures.
4. Dress for Your Activities
Remember, you’re probably not going to stay on the yacht for the entire length of your trip. Think about excursions and pack accordingly. For example, if you’re planning on going ashore to sample the local cuisine in an elegant restaurant, bring some dressier clothing items. If you’re going to do some trekking, bring along appropriate footwear and comfortable clothes.
5. What Not to Bring
Make the most of your space onboard by bringing only what you need and avoiding frivolities. Leave behind ultra-expensive electronics and ditch drones, cigarettes, and alcoholic beverages unless you have discussed these items with your captain beforehand. It’s also smart to use a duffel bag or a large backpack rather than suitcases with wheels, because these may scratch the decking.
