Luxury Yacht Charter Hawaii

Yacht Charter in Hawaii

The archipelago of Hawaii lies in the Pacific Ocean south east Japan and on the same parallel with Mexico. Known as America’s 50th state, it is made up of 19 stunning islands and tolls, many of which are totally deserted. The largest island is called Hawaii – or the Big Island – and is home to active volcanoes on the southeast coast. The capital of Hawaii is found on the island of Oahu, where most of the population lives. Hawaii is characterized by mile upon mile of uninhabited coastlines filled with empty beaches and secluded anchorages, making the perfect cruising destination for yacht charter.

Luxury Yacht Charter French Polynesia

Yacht Charter in French Polynesia

French Polynesia consists of no less than three archipelagoes of islands in the South Pacific Ocean, to the east of the Cook Islands, in an area that is the size of Europe. The largest island - and its economic and political centre - is Tahiti, which became a French colony in 1880. Tahiti and its sister islands of Moorea and Bora Bora are all hugely popular as luxury tourism destinations, their crystal clear seas and deserted white-sand beaches providing the ultimate backdrop for a romantic getaway. Further afield are the Tuamotu and Austral Islands, which offer endless possibilities for intrepid travelers. The French Polynesian islands are also a much sought-after destination for luxury yacht charters.

Luxury Yacht Charter Samoa

Yacht Charter in Samoa

Samoa – also known as Western Samoa – is an independent state situated in the South Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and Hawaii. North of Tonga and west of the Cook Islands, Samoa consists of 10 islands which are scattered in the crystal clear waters full of rich marine life and breathtaking coral. The main island is Upolu, home to the capital Apia – an atmospheric and vibrant city which acts as an ideal gateway to the nine other islands. Samoa is a warm and vivacious country, and a wonderful tourist destination. However, it is not a favourite amongst sailors as the shallow coral reefs surrounding the islands makes it difficult for larger yachts to anchor near its shores.
