The diverse landscape of New Zealand packs in plenty of geographic variety, ranging from rugged mountains to wild forests, powerful geysers to unspoiled beaches and majestic glaciers. The incredible cruising grounds feature miles of stunning coastline, sheltered waters and countless picturesque islands. — Lies Sol, Charter Broker
Often known as “God’s own country” or “Paradise of the Pacific,” North Island and South Island are located in the South Pacific southeast of Australia. Set on tectonic plates, seismic activity here is common and volcanoes abound. Lake Taupo was created in the caldera of a super volcano, which explored some 26,500 years ago. Both the North and South Islands have incredible bays, beaches, harbors and fjords for cruising.
The North Island is home to Auckland, New Zealand’s capital. This thriving metropolis is well known for its rugby enthusiasm and sailing prowess — Auckland often is referred to as “The City of Sails” — is cosmopolitan and enchanting. During your New Zealand yacht charter you will find world-class restaurants and high-end shopping within the city limits and just outside, stunning beaches with beautiful bays abound. Auckland also is known for its Polynesian heritage. Natives to the islands are of Maori decent and their strong, proud heritage runs throughout the local culture of the North Island.
The extensive waterways of the Marlborough Sounds make this destination perfect for sailing. Located on the northeastern edge of the South Island, Pelorus Sound and Queen Charlotte Sound offer beautiful vistas, exciting activities, historic sites and secluded bays. Kayaking is an excellent way to explore the Sounds, as are hiking and mountain biking. Marlborough Sounds also is extremely well known for its wineries. Home to the world’s premium Sauvignon Blanc, the lush rolling hills and natural adornments of the famous local wineries are the perfect backdrop as you unwind while sampling the best of the best wines during a New Zealand yacht charter.
