There is nothing better than spending the warm sunny days onboard a yacht. However, in recent years we have learned the potentially negative effects of sun exposure. In this post we will cover the top ways on how to stay safe in the sun. All the while, having fun! When you book a yacht in Miami with us, we take care of every little detail. This way, you can just sit back and relax to enjoy your trip. On the other hand, sun safety tips are handy in everyday life. Here are our top five tips.
Sunscreen is your best friend
Sunscreen is the primary line of defense against premature aging and potentially harmful UV radiation. A full spectrum high SPF (30 or more) is the ideal sunscreen to use when going on a boat. Since there is a chance of getting splashed or jumping in the water, we would recommend investing in a physically protective sunscreen. In comparison to chemically based sunscreen, physical blocking sunscreens rely on ingredients such as zinc to completely stop the UV radiation from reaching your skin. Chemical sunscreen on the other hand, simply changes the outcome of the impact on your skin. While chemical sunscreen has been the norm for the past few years, it has been linked with coral reef degradation. For this reason, we would encourage you to seek out reef safe sunscreen created from non nano particles that protect you and our ocean.
Hats and Physical barriers
While sunscreen is our go to solution to protecting ourselves from the sun, physical barriers are even better. Grab a hat, cap, and a light linen long sleeve shirt to bring on board with you. Once you’re done swimming, simply throw the cover over yourself for a stylish yet protective layer. Even the best sunscreen will not be as efficient in keeping our solar rays as a shirt or hat. Be mindful that when you are on the boat, the sun’s rays reflect from the surface of the water. This means, even with a hat, you must combine your sun protection methods with sunscreen.
Not only are polarized sunglasses the best option for eye protection from the sharp glare but they also help you see better on the water. Polarized sunglasses eliminate some of the reflected light that shines from the surface of the sea. This means you will be able to look through the water better and spot coral reefs, turtles, and other marine animals easier! A good pair of polarized sunglasses, and even a back up, are a must have when on a yacht.
Lastly, but certainly not least, to stay sun safe onboard a boat rental with crew, is to drink enough water. Keep a water bottle or some electrolyte drinks nearby. Swimming and spending the day in the sun will typically exhaust anyone who is not used to it. Drinking water will avoid dehydration, headaches, and will keep your body functioning ideally. If you have any additional questions about sun safety, do not hesitate to contact the friendly Instyle Yachts team.

Can children go on a yacht?
Children of all ages are welcome onboard a yacht. While they are under the age of 12, they are required to always wear a life vest. This ensures their safety. It is also important to keep a close eye on your children as there is a small chance they can fall overboard. Children may also be prone to sea sickness, so consider investing in sea sickness medication prior to boarding the vessel. While there are some extra safety considerations with children, they will certainly enjoy their day on the sea.
Must haves for children on a yacht
If you are bringing your children on the yacht, please make sure to bring the following.
- Hat and body protection from the sun
- Ample water and other fluids
- Activities (including animal spotting books, colouring, snorkelling equipment, or binoculars)
Keep in mind that the sun rays reflecting off the ocean can cause sun burn so reapply sun protection frequently.
What animals can they see on the yacht?
A favourite past time of many children includes animal spotting. The coastline of Florida is the home of many creatures including plenty you and your family can spot from the yacht. Dolphins frequently ply in the waves, a large variety of bird species sit on the coast or glide through the sky, and the reefs are a hub of marine biodiversity. If your children are adventurous and confident swimmers, they may enjoy diving beneath the waves to explore the underwater world.
Can your children snorkel?
If you choose to take your yacht charter to visit one of Florida’s reefs, your children will have the chance to jump in and see Nemo’s home. The water is warm through out the year and visibility is good. This means their snorkelling experience will be pleasant experience no matter what time of the year you go. If they are prone to being cold, consider bringing a wetsuit for additional warmth.
Family of all ages enjoy the time on the yacht
An adventure on the sea is truly an experience that the whole family can enjoy. Whether it is a toddler sitting on their father’s lap, an eager child ready to spot the first turtle, or a hip teenager unsure about the family time of it all. Florida’s coastline and reefs can turn anyone into an excited sailor. So, contact Instyle Yachts today to organize yacht rental in Miami.
