French Polynesia is a group of 118 islands in the Pacific Ocean between South America and Australia, including the Austral, Gambier, Marquesas, Tuamotu, and Society archipelagos and covering an area nearly the size of Europe.
French Polynesia covers more than 5 million square kilometres (1.9 million square miles) of the South Pacific Ocean. Few of the islands are inhabited, so yacht charterers may expect to enjoy beautiful beaches, hidden coves, and azure lagoons all to themselves. Come here for relaxing beach days, a plethora of marine life, breathtakingly stunning untamed landscapes, and amazing sunsets. Nothing compares to French Polynesia when it comes to paradise. Sea turtles, sharks, dolphins, porpoises, colourful hard and soft coral, and more than 500 kinds of fish call the Tahitian Leewards home, making it one of the best snorkelling and scuba diving sites in the world. A Tahitian boat charter might include resorts, water sports, island excursions, ancient sites, and great dining, to name a few.
French Polynesia offers a plethora of alternatives for a memorable yacht charter. Beautiful beaches dotted with coconut trees, enticing lagoons, and pure pleasure are all part of daily life in French Polynesia.
Despite its near proximity to Australia, New Zealand is radically distinct in terms of both culture and landscape. New Zealand's culture includes music, art, language, and literature, and the country's rich history dates back over 1,000 years to the arrival of the Polynesians. Over 4.6 million Europeans share the nation with the indigenous Maori population today.
The North Island and the South Island are the two primary islands that make up New Zealand. On the North Island, Auckland, the 'City of Sails,' is an excellent place to start your yacht charter. From here, go north to the stunning Bay of Islands or south to the Bay of Plenty, home of Waiheke Island and the world's only active marine volcano. Wine aficionados will like the ashore excursions to the various vineyards; the North Island is known for its Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir production. On the South Island, these grape varietals are also grown, although Sauvignon Blanc reigns supreme.
