Papua New Guinea Yacht Charter Guide

Discover the beauty of diversity, the wonder of unspoiled cruising locations, and the delight of underwater reefs teeming with sea life when you charter a yacht in the islands of Papua New Guinea.

A Papua New Guinea yacht charter offers you a unique perspective. This island nation is home to more than 5,000 different. It is also the world’s most linguistically diverse place as more than 800 languages are spoken ashore. As well as different languages, here, you will find unmeasurable biological diversity. You can discover Papua New Guinea’s stunning coral reefs and beautiful beaches by sea. By land, you can visit its verdant rainforests and simmering volcanoes. Papua New Guinea truly offers something for everyone in your charter party. Relaxing days lazing about the beaches are as accessible as afternoons spent diving among the colorful fish who call the island’s reefs home. The wreckage of World War II ships and planes also can be found below the waterline.

One of the most unique experiences of your Papua New Guinea yacht charter is visiting local tribes on the island. Mostly nestled in the mountains, friendly locals are keen to share their culture, offering tours of their villages and invites to dance performances and meals. Celebrating the unique cultures found ashore here is a memory you and your guests will not soon forget.

The capital of Papua New Guinea, Port Moresby, is more modern, offering restaurants with Asian and European influences and shopping – from local markets to high-end art galleries.

Located close by, the Solomon Islands are an easy cruise from Papua New Guinea. They offer their own unique biodiversity and an abundance of sea life.

Hiking enthusiasts should build into their charter, either pre or post, a visit to the Kokoda Trail, a single-file trail that spans 96 kilometers through rugged terrain. This challenging trek is not for the faint of heart, climbing more than 8,000 feet into the mountains to reach Mount Bellamy. The trek takes between four and 12 days to complete.
