    Hyderabad Peeps, India's First Ever Yachting Festival is Happening Close To You & We Have Deets

    What Is It?

    In a first ever in the country, Andhra Pradesh Tourism in association with E Factor { an events company} is organising India’s first yachting festival in Vizag. The idea is to put Vizag, an important port, on the marine tourism map of the world. The Vizag Yachting Festival is apparently going to showcase a fleet of luxury yachts for enthusiasts who don’t mind going on an adventure with all the luxury in the world.

    Who Is It For?

    Evene if it is going to take us a while to be able to afford an yacht {maybe in the next lifetime?}, there is no harm in going and being able to gawk at a bunch of sleek and shiny yachts padded up with all kinds of amenities and luxuries. Oh, and you can check out all the participating yachts here.

    Why Should I Go For It?

    Not only can you admire these yachts, but you will be able to board them, chill and take gazillions of Instagram images and selfies, but also take part in activities like a treasure hunt, swimming off the yatcht {ooh we are getting serious Cannes vibes here}, fishing and even snorkelling. Yass! The yachts will also sail along popular beaches like Rishikonda, RK Beach, Tothlakonda and Yerada beach. The fleet will sail on the Bay Of Bengal in the mornings and anchor at pre-determined spots in the evening where you can take part in carnivals and live music too. The festival hopes to be inclusive and will also include participation from the local fishing community of Vizag, who will add colour and local flavour to the fest.

    The prices are quiet steep, a day pass will actually cost you a cool INR 14,500 but it does include a full day’s worth of cruising, breakfast, lunch and dinner, and entry to the evening gala and live performances. And if you are looking to owning a yacht for a day, then they even have a charter your own yacht situation going on. This will include lunch and dinner and participation in gala events.

    When:  Wednesday, March 28 to Saturday, March 31
