Sailing a charter yacht in the vast southern Pacific Ocean can be as relaxing or challenging as you want it to be.
Whether taking a monohull yacht to cover the ground and for sheer sailing pleasure, or a catamaran for its space and family comfort, whether choosing a bareboat or skippered option, the charter zones of Tahiti, Tonga and New Caledonia have it all. Spend your entire sailing holiday never leaving the tranquil blue lagoon, or visit places you've read about that require the rewarding experience of a short ocean passage.
Across in Australia. the Whitsundays, 74 tropical islands most of which are uninhabited, lie protected from the ocean by the outer Great Barrier Reef, a true wonder of the natural world. The cruising grounds of the Whitsunday Islands offer an almost infinite number of anchorages suitable for charter boats, with spectacular beaches set against an aquamarine sea teeming with marine life.
The tropical South Pacific islands are sailing destinations of peaceful pleasure. The people are welcoming, the sailing season weather is kind, and the natural enviroment is astounding. It's as if these islands have been put there just for you to enjoy, unaffected as they are by outside influence, even in the 21st century.
The southern hemisphere winter is cruising time in tropical waters: go east to Tahiti, west to New Caledonia, or get right to the heart of the Pacific in the Kingdom of Tonga. Fly into Brisbane, Austrlia and explore the nearby Whitsunday Islands. The choices for chartering in the South Pacific & Oceania are as exciting as they are colourful. And access is easy with well-developed air links across the Pacific.
From May to October, the weather is beautifully warm and the trade winds provide sensational sailing conditions in these latitudes. Wherever you choose to charter in the South Pacific, countless places of interest await discovery within practical sailing distances of base port.
