Bay of Islands New Zealand

The New Zealand Bay of Islands is the perfect yachting destination for any ocean-lover. Filled with white sandy beaches, tall towering trees, and luscious green hills that can be seen for miles, this is a yacht charter location where you will have no trouble relaxing. Once considered the colonial heart of New Zealand, the tiny towns that fill the islands will give you a look into the history and culture of the country. Visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds near Paihia to see where New Zealand’s modern history began or visit the towns of Russel and Kerikeri to get a taste of the once British Colony.

The Bay of Islands Maritime Park is definitely a “must-see” while you’re here. This stretch of 144 islands are home to crystal-clear waters, dolphins, and whales. Many choose to travel north of Auckland simply to visit the Maritime Park. Around the towns of Russell and Paihia, enjoy sea kayaking tours, swim in private coves, and snorkel or scuba dive for an up-close view of the diverse marine life. You can also tour Cape Brett and the bay’s Hole in the Rock formation—a very popular destination on the islands.

Marlborough Sound, New Zealand – Mistletoe Bay

On the north end of the southern island in New Zealand are the cruising waters of the Marlborough Sounds, the shores of which are home to a number of excellent New Zealand wineries, producing superb world class boutique wines. Encompassing Queen Charlotte Sound, Kenpuru and Pelorus Sounds, the Marlborough Sounds area of New Zealand is an extensive body of water that floods up river valleys for spectacular scenery of mountainous green fingers of land extending into blue waters. With over 1500 kilometers of coastline along these fingers of land, you could cruise this area of coves and anchorages for weeks of constant new discoveries. And the same local conditions of low rainfall during the summer, lush green hills, and abundant sunshine that make the Marlborough Sounds a lovely cruising area; on shore, make this countryside the perfect grape growing area producing world class premier wines.

Great Barrier Reef

Located off of the eastern coast of Queensland, Australia, in the Coral Sea, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world, and an outstanding crewed yacht charter location both for experienced divers and the casual snorkeler.

Today, much of the Great Barrier Reef is protected as a natural park, and in 1981 was named a World Heritage Site. Crewed yacht charter is allowed with park permits and cruising on a crewed charter yacht is one of the best ways to see and privately explore this exciting and diverse eco area.
