There isn't a much better way to spend your summer than on the water. Instead of renting a hotel room for your weeklong, well-deserved vacation, consider another option. If you enjoy a little adventure, direct access to the waterfront, and the ability to do as you please on the open seas, this alternative to a land-dwelling holiday will have you sailing with excitement. Make the most of the warm weather by chartering a yacht with your friends, split the cost, sit back and cruise the majestic B.C. coastline. Or just relax on the water and wake up every morning to the fresh sea air.\nNarcity may receive a portion of sales if you purchase something from this article, which was created independently by Narcity's editorial team just for you.\nNo matter your fancy, this list has the yacht for you, and don't worry if you don't know how to drive a boat because a few of these include a host captain, guaranteeing a safe and stellar stay.
