Escape the city and spend the summer at sea

Escape the city and spend the summer at sea

Finding a way to cool off on a hot, humid day in Korea can be tough. Swimming pools and water parks are an option, but the traffic, crowds and overall unpleasant atmosphere are discouraging, to say the least. But why stand in a line for 30 seconds of splashes when you can escape to a natural remedy? Yachting, kayaking and rafting are just three ways to go off the beaten path and enjoy your summer without bumping shoulders.I’m on a boat Sunbathing in white linens on a luxurious yacht with a pina colada in-hand and Brad Pitt wearing the captain’s hat – not a bad way to spend a summer afternoon. You don’t need to be a millionaire or sailing in the Caribbean to make this fantasy come true (excluding Brad, perhaps). A number of harbor cities around the country offer different types of yacht tours including Jeju Island; Haeundae in Busan; Jeongok Harbor in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi; and Chungmu Marina in Tongyeong, South Gyeongsang. One of the many charms of spending a day on a yacht tour is that you can enjoy the sea with all your senses. As soon as the tour starts, a stunning view of the boundless ocean opens in front of your eyes while the smell of the sea reminds you where you are. The sound of the waves crashing comes as the cool breeze slips through your fingers. There are two types of yacht tours: public and private. Busan Bexco’s public yacht tour called Yacht B (www.yachtb.co.kr) offers one-hour tours starting from Gwanganri to Haeundae to Dongbaek Island, along Marine City and back to Gwanganri. During the tour, sea fishing, barbecuing on the yacht and foot baths are all available. Yacht tours get especially popular during the sunset. To catch the view, you can purchase the tour program that starts at 7 or 8:30 p.m. Public tours cost 60,000 won ($53) for adults and 40,000 won for children. A maximum of 29 people, including the skipper, can board the yacht. If you prefer a private session on a yacht, you can rent the whole boat at each of the above-mentioned cities. It can be a little more costly, but if you are planning on a romantic night, you’d have to try pretty hard to screw it up. You can also try skin-scuba diving, swimming and sea fishing on your own private yacht. It costs 500,000 won per hour to rent. ...
