When we say ‘cruise’, total relax is what most people think of - days spent sunbathing, snorkeling and sipping sunset drinks with little umbrellas, before setting sail to yet another tropical beach.

The idea of cruising is not immediately associated with adventure - in fact, cruising is a great idea for adrenaline junkies, especially those that like spending the day experiencing the most hair-raising water adventures, and enjoying a touch of luxury at night.

Chartering a yacht is the ideal way to plan a holiday dedicated to your favorite adrenaline activity - be it diving, surfing or, why not, even climbing! Our local operators can plan all kind of activities for you and your friends, customizing the itinerary of your boat rental to suit your needs and desires. Here we’ve collected the 6 best cruises for adrenaline junkies, all available on nowboat!


Best Cruises for Adrenaline Junkies 

Diving and Snorkeling in French Polynesia

If your group includes both divers and snorkelers, this 6-day cruise from Raiatea to Bora Bora focuses on exploring some of the most spectacular underwater seascapes in French Polynesia! Our local operators will take you off the beaten track, where you’ll be able to swim with rays, sharks, and barracudas. There’s also a scuba instructor on board if anyone wants to try scuba diving for the first time!

A Pirate Cruise around the Gili Islands

Leave the hustle of the main Gili Islands behind and hop aboard this adventure cruise, 4 days sailing around the undiscovered Southern Gili. The Cruise is especially suitable for families and children because our boat is a real pirate phinisi, a traditional Indonesian vessel turned into a tall ship good enough for Captain Hook. As you sail through little-visited islands like Gili Nanggu and Gili Asahan, our local operator will arrange games and pirate-themed activities, including a real treasure hunt! The perfect cruise for adrenaline junkies with families!

24-day Voyage Across the Atlantic

If you love sailing, I’m sure you’ve dreamed of completing a real Atlantic crossing, like the explorers of yesteryear. However, such a feat comes with undeniable logistic challenges, and should be undertaken only by very experienced seafarers - and adrenaline junkies, of course! If you’re a novice sailor but want to explore the thrill of an Atlantic crossing, you can do so in occasion of the next Atlantic Odyssey rally, sailing with a group of boats from Tenerife to Barbados. After spending 18 days at sea, Barbados will be the gateway of your next Caribbean adventure! This is probably the ultimate cruise for adrenaline junkies!

Sailing and Climbing in Greece

Did you know that sailing and climbing go very well together? In places like Thailand and the Greek Islands, there are wonderful cliffs and rock formations, ideal to be climbed directly from your private charter! Our local operator Eleonora has designed this unique 12-day sailing and climbing adventure around the Cyclades and Dodecanese, to share with you the best of both worlds - and there’s an experienced mountain guide on board, ready to ‘show you the ropes’ if you’ve never climbed before.

Locations visited include Sikati Bay in Kalymnos, with several pitches of all difficulty levels, Kinaros, an uninhabited rocky islet with some unnamed climbs, and finally Milos, home to some great multi-pitch climbs. A dream cruise for adrenaline junkies!

Kitesurfing Cruise in the Red Sea

The Red Sea has long been known as an excellent diving destination, but did you know it’s also great for kitesurfing, thanks to its shallow waters and reliable wind conditions? This 7-day kitesurfing cruise around the Egyptian Red Sea includes some of the best locations to ride the winds - places like Tawilah Island and its famous beaches, Geisum Island and Abu Minqar Island, which also has the added bonus of being close to some world-class dive sites!
