Yacht charter SOUTH PACIFIC : (French Polynesia, Raiatea, Tahiti) : Bareboat or with skipper, sailing yachts, catamarans, power boats, or fully crewed yachts.

The Pacific, the largest of all the oceans, exceeds with its dimensions the entire landmass of our planet. It cover more than a third of the surface of the world. This is an area as big as the Atlantic, the Indian as well as the Arctic oceans put together. The Pacific is therefore the largest geographical entity in the world. Estimates suggest that there are around 30.000 islands in the Pacific which is more than in all other seas of the world put together. Amongst the largest islands in the South Pacific rank New Guinea, South Island (New Zealand), Grande Terre (New Caledonia) and Big Island (Hawaii).

Yacht Charter Climate: During the summer months in the Southern hemisphere (December to March) it can rain often and for long periods. That time of the year is also the time of thunderstorms in the areas south of the Equator. Between April to November you will predominately find trade winds from the south-easterly direction in the South Pacific. As these months are generally also cooler and drier, this is a more suitable time for a yacht charter in the South Pacific. The air temperature varies between warm to very hot all through the year, depending on where you are. Once the sun starts to set, you will have around one hour until darkness.

Yacht Charter Raiatea: From the Cosmos base in Raiatea you can sail to the Atolls with dream-like lagoons, or you can explore imposing volcanoes which are overgrown with tropical vegetation.

The sailing area of French Polynesia will offer you all you would expect from a yacht charter in the South Pacific: hospitable locals, remote dream-like beaches or more bustling beaches with beach bars and exquisite French restaurants, and crystal clear waters which host a magical underwater world. Navigation is simple as the islands are close together.

French Polynesia is a French “overseas collectivity” with the particular designation of “overseas country” in the southern Pacific Ocean. It is made up of several groups of Polynesian islands, the most famous island being Tahiti in the Society Islands group, which is also the most populous island, and the seat of the capital of the territory (Papeete). Although not an integral part of its territory, Clipperton Island is administered from French Polynesia, situated right in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, consists of six island groups of volcanic origin; the Society Islands, the Marquesas, Tuamotu, Gambier and the Austral Ridge.
