Families have boarded our yachts to celebrate a wide variety of special occasions, from birthdays to anniversaries to graduations. Observing such events serves an array of purposes, not the least of which is to build memories together. The following are several of the most common reasons for family celebrations, which enable us to come together with our loved ones and make the most of the time we have with one another.

The Milestones Families Celebrate Together

Births and Remembrances

A birth is a natural reason to rejoice with family and friends. Few occasions are more special than the ushering in of a new life to the world. And it may surprise you to know that celebrations of life are also growing popular for remembering those who have left us.

Birthdays and Other Rites of Passage

These are some of the most commonly observed occasions on our yacht charters on San Francisco Bay. Particularly, families may wish to recognize certain landmarks, such as a 50th birthday. Several rites of passage are also popular reasons for gathering, including the Sweet Sixteen party, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs , First Communions and Confirmations, and Quinceaneras for Hispanic families from many nations. In addition, cultural New Years celebrations go on all year too!

Weddings and Anniversaries

Various celebrations are held in association with weddings and marriage. These include engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies and receptions, and anniversaries. In addition to engagement parties, parties are often thrown for brides-to-be and grooms-to-be. Weddings are considered by many individuals to be the most important event of their lives.

Wedding anniversaries give us a chance to both cherish memories and make new ones. Some of the landmark anniversaries are the first, 10th, 25th, and 50th.

Awards and Honors

Receiving an award or other honor is certainly a cause for formal acknowledgement. Families might come together to recognize the receipt of a diploma or a workplace promotion. Retirement parties are traditional celebrations that we see on our yachts. A family might also celebrate military honors, trophies earned in sports, or civic awards.
