Auckland is a bustling South Pacific city with a cosmopolitan lifestyle - and right on its doorstep is a fantastic cruising vacation playground, the Hauraki Gulf, with 76 islands, and over 200 sheltered anchorages and miles of beautiful coastline all the way north to the Bay of Islands.
Auckland is also the ideal location to commence your luxury charter yacht vacation in New Zealand. Within 30 minutes of clearing at Auckland International Airport, you can board your private yacht, and within two hours of the marina the islands of the inner Gulf are within easy reach.
Auckland’s wide and picturesque Waitemata Harbour and the Hauraki Gulf, considered ‘the jewel in Auckland’s crown’, offers a huge choice of course options for your luxury yacht charter taking into account the wind and tidal conditions. This spectacular, deep-water harbour provides more than 1,500 sq. nautical miles of cruising and the opportunity to explore numerous islands with sheltered anchorages and deserted beaches.
The Bay of Islands has attracted sailors from around the world for over a century, with its sheltered anchorages and temperate sub-tropical climate. It is the ideal yacht charter destination, with lots of anchorages in close proximity, you can decide your itinerary as the mood takes.
Aptly named, the Bay is studded with islands providing an area of varied geographic beauty and unspoiled sailing grounds. There are innumerable anchorages, great fishing and diving and white sandy beaches within sheltered waters.
Chartering PACIFIC MERMAID is the best way to explore the friendly tropical islands of Fiji. Guests to this splendid tropical island paradise can spend their time island hopping, stepping ashore to meet villagers, partaking in their joyous festivities and feasts, diving to discover the vibrant subaquatic world, marvelling at volcanic mountains and caves, and breathing in the unspoilt wilderness that abounds in Fiji.
Popular with yacht captains and their charter guests, the most visited chains are the Yasawa Islands and Mamanuca Islands. If you want to stay reasonably close to the mainland Viti Levu, the Mamanucas have a huge range of world-class resorts and activities to keep you going. Cruising these islands and 'resort hopping' is ideal for sociable types who love keeping busy and meet people.
If a more laidback experience is what you're after, the nearby Yasawas are less developed and every bit as beautiful, giving you the opportunity to learn about Fijian culture and lifestyle in the villages dotted throughout the group.
