Tuamotu Archipelago Yacht Charter Guide

The Tuamotu islands welcome you with open arms if you’re seeking a bucket list cruising ground.

Situated in beautiful French Polynesia, the seemingly remote Tuamotu archipelago comprises just under 80 islands and atolls that age with beauty as time goes on. A luxury yacht charter exploring this unique paradise promises pristine white sand beaches, sparkling blue waters and fantastic marine life.

Off the beaten path from more well-known cruising grounds, the tropical paradise of the Tuamotu islands will have you feeling complete bliss surrounded by unimaginable landscapes. Far from the tourist crowds, these awe-inspiring landscapes act as the perfect backdrop to sip your sunset cocktail and enjoy a delectable meal prepared by the onboard chef.

Strewn with coral atolls, the 80 islands of the Tuamotus are idyllic. As you embark on your luxury yacht charter through this stunning chain of islands, you can look forward to days spent exploring in style. For the waterborne, dare to dive the South Pass of the Fakarava Atoll, where you’ll swim side by side with hundreds of sharks and marbled grouper. Ohotu Reef is known to host tuna, sharks and manta rays as well as impressive deep-water drop-offs. Suppose you’re keener to spend your days ashore, tender to the stunning pink sand beaches nearby. After a long morning of excursions, head back to your yacht for lunch on the aft deck, followed by an evening of socializing and planning your next adventure.

As your yacht moves to the North Pass of Fakarava, you can enjoy a delicious breakfast on the aft deck as you ponder what the day ahead will bring. The Garuae Pass offers pristine blue waters, excellent visibility and healthy coral reefs. Explore the Havaiki Pearl Farm and try your hand at free diving for a pearl of your own. What better way to bring a piece of paradise back with you? You can look forward to a relaxing spa treatment by the onboard masseuse or a soak in the sundeck Jacuzzi.

The effortlessly beautiful coral atoll of Toau has long been a treasure for seafarers. With friendly locals, an abundance of coconuts and action happening below the water, this scenic locale is tucked away and one of the Tuamotu’s best-kept secrets. An array of unique fish color the waters and make diving adventures idyllic.

After a delicious breakfast on the aft deck of your yacht, gear up to explore Apataki, a truly stunning atoll that offers plenty of adventure. Try and spot sharks, giant moray eels and other fantastic marine species while diving the north pass wall. Hike along the coral shorelines or try a relaxing afternoon of paddleboarding before heading back to your yacht for an evening of laughter and delectable cuisine.

The largest atoll in the Tuamotu archipelago, Rangiroa, offers plenty of breathtaking dive centers for both experienced and beginners. Try your hand at kitesurfing, dive the East Pass and head ashore to explore the laid-back island life of the Rangiroa village. End your Tuamotu holiday with a bonfire beach celebration before heading aboard your luxury charter yacht one last time.
