Luxury Yacht Charter South Pacific

View Yacht Charters

You will find pure paradise thanks to the tropical climate fanned by the trade winds and warm waters of the South Pacific during your yacht charter here.

The sprawling South Pacific region comprises five well-separated archipelagos located in the world’s largest ocean. Discover their unique landscapes, ranging from rainforest-carpeted volcanic mountain peaks to white-sand beaches, blue lagoons, and coral reefs ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling. From the Society Islands to the Tuamotu Atolls and the lesser-known Marquesas, Gambier, and Austral Islands, planning a cruise here is a balancing act, but the rewards are many.

A South Pacific yacht charter can be primarily split into three key destinations, French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, and Fiji, both of which will leave lasting memories. These three destinations boast an almost limitless number of shore destinations to explore, with thousands of gorgeous sun-drenched islands – many uninhabited – strewn across the South Pacific Ocean. Aboard a luxury yacht charter, you can cruise at your own pace, set your own itinerary, and drop anchor where and when you please. Whether you are seeking a romantic getaway or a family vacation, a luxury yacht charter in the South Pacific is guaranteed to delight you.

Cruising regions in the South Pacific

French Polynesia yacht charter

Luxury yacht charters in French Polynesia are personified by stunning turquoise lagoons, sugar-white sand beaches, overwater bungalows, and lush green jungles teeming with cascading waterfalls and vibrant flora and fauna. Popular cruising destinations include Bora Bora, Tahiti, and Moorea, but with over 100 islands to explore, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore off the beaten path.

Cook Islands yacht charter

The Cook Islands sit between Fiji and French Polynesia, comprising 15 islands scattered across a large area and divided into the Northern Islands and the Southern Islands. Many of the islands are untouched by civilization, making them a castaway dream that is best explored by boat. Explore rugged mountain summits, pristine white sand beaches, and quaint fishing villages.

Fiji private yacht charter

With more than 300 islands to explore, no two yacht charter vacations need ever be the same. Hike through pristine tropical rainforests, explore local villages and enjoy a taste of traditional Fijian life, or sink beneath the waves and dive some of the world’s most spectacular coral reefs teeming with marine life. Fiji’s picture postcard coastlines offer some of the most breathtaking cruising grounds in the world.

The Society Islands; French Polynesia

The Society Islands are the most famous island groups for luxury yacht charters. When chartering here, you can cruise Tahiti and the atolls of Bora Bora to the islands of Raiatea, Taha’a and Huahine. This archipelago is best discovered by yacht. Tahiti is the largest island in the group and is the usual gateway to the Society Islands and neighboring Tuamotu Atolls. Here you are invited to make the most of the water, with snorkeling, diving, swimming, and kayaking all vying for your time. When you head ashore are countless monuments, ruins, and natural landscapes that remain relatively unspoiled and await your visit. Board your luxury yacht in the capital of Papeete, with its restaurants, bars and cultural hot spots. Spend the day immersing yourself in Polynesian culture ashore before setting a course to discover her Society Islands. Explore the timeless beauty of the volcanic islands and jump in to discover the enchanting underwater world beneath the psychedelic surface of the South Sea.
