The 164-ft, family-friendly Impromptu is based in the Sea of Cortez, where waters abound with sea life, including whales, dolphins, sea lions and rainbow-colored fish. The joy of chartering a superyacht is that every step of your itinerary can be customized, and we recommend jet skiing around Isla Carmen, or taking the yacht’s small sailboat if the wind is blowing in your favor.
See if you can spot a brown pelican or scissor-tailed flycatcher as you circumnavigate this Unesco-protected island. Don your diving gear in Cabo San Pulmo; it is the only North American hard reef and home to over 6,000 species including elusive sea turtles and rays.
Surf the waves
Or surf the breaks off Costa Azul Beach — there are three to choose from that cater to all levels of expertise. There is a JetSurf board in the toy garage, too. Back on board, sun loungers surround the raised Jacuzzi on the upper sundeck during the day, and the deck offers a fantastic party centerpiece come evening.
