Every year in the Antartic, as winter closes in and food becomes scarcer, one of the worlds great migrations takes place.Many hundreds of humpback whales swim 6000 km north to spend 4-5 months enjoying the warmer and food-rich waters of French Polynesia, to breed and to give birth to their calves. This is a time for mating, with underwater singing that can be heard all day long as the males try to impress the females.
There are some amazing surfing destinations to be found in the South Pacific, including Tahiti and Fiji, and it is no accident that many professional and amateur surfing competitions are held in these places.
Water sports are an integral part of any South Pacific sailing holiday, including diving, surfing, snorkeling, kiteboarding, game fishing and many, many others, and Tahiti has more than its fair share of exciting surfing locations to explore while on your Tahiti yacht charter holiday! Or just watch the experts during the many competitions throughout the year.
To rent a yacht in Tahiti opens up a true myriad of amazing water sports you can take part in – surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, diving, jet skiing, parasailing – you name it and you can try it.
One of the most exhilarating (or crazy?) activities is feeding and swimming with sharks, a very popular tourist activity around the island of Bora Bora.
Probably the most well-known, romantic and visually stunning island in French Polynesia, and possibly the whole world. Bora Bora is surrounded by a lagoon and coral reef, with the centre of the island being an extinct volcano. This offers some of the most famous postcard images you can find anywhere, while sailing on your yacht charter Tahiti.
Don’t panic all you American football fans…the NFL has not chosen the beautiful islands around Tahiti to host next year’s Superbowl! Centuries before Europeans figured out that the Earth was not flat, the explorers of Polynesia were traversing the South Pacific on massive, double-hull outrigger canoes, navigating by the winds and stars. The canoe still plays an important part in Tahitian life, and many colourful events are held to celebrate this national sport of Tahiti.
Welcome to the most beautiful place on earth? Quite possibly! Over 100 volcanic islands in the middle of the South Pacific, with salty breeze and swaying trees Tahiti must rank as one of the most stunning destinations on the planet. High mountain peaks diving into sparkling blue lagoons, provide the perfect surroundings for your yacht charter Tahiti. Continue reading
Magical Tahiti! Simply saying the word and closing your eyes, conjours up images of paradise. 118 islands present high mountain peaks sweeping down to turquoise-blue lagoons, surrounded by coral reefs teeming with marine life. Add to that the perfect white beaches dotted with palm trees, and you will have memories to last you a lifetime from your luxury yacht charter Tahiti. Continue reading
We have all heard about the seven Wonders of the World – such as the Taj Mahal, the Great Pyramids of Egypt, the Great Wall of China.
Surely, one of the candidates for the 8th wonder of the natural world must be diving in the lagoons of Tahiti! With 40 meters of visibility, shallow blue lagoons protected by reefs, and then drop offs into the deep oceans, this area is a true marvel.
The yachting industry in Asia is bigger than ever and well on its way to booming. With ever more yacht enthusiasts looking to explore the Far East in search of something new and exciting, more of the world’s most impressive yachts are making their way east. This was abundantly evident at the recent Singapore Yacht Show last week. Whilst not yet as big as some of the yacht shows in Monaco and Antibes for example, the Singapore Yacht Show is a great place to get aboard some truly amazing yachts with many yachts offering guided tours; giving you the chance to see what super yachts are all about.
In our preview blog a couple of weeks ago, CLOUD 9 was touted as one of the potential highlights of the show. Boatbooking’s charter expert in Asia, Kevin, was lucky enough to look around her and reports that she most certainly lives up to the billing. Massive amounts of light streams into an indulgently spacious yacht whilst the garage stocks every water toy known to man.
Kevin has also been raving about KERI LEE III. The owner’s wife is an interior designer and, judging from the finish found on board, she won’t be out of pocket any time soon. Better resembling a grand mansion than a yacht, KERI LEE III is decorated impeccably with original artwork, French antiques as well as glorious marble linings and the most inviting of salons.
No expense has been spared in order to create a yacht which is quintessentially luxurious throughout. A magnificent spiral staircase connects the three stunning interior levels. The sky lounge is nothing short of jaw dropping, featuring everything that you could possibly want for the perfect day.
Dine al fresco, lounge in the sun, cool off in front of a film in the jacuzzi and then clear everything away, turn the music up and dance the night away. KERI LEE III has it all and sums up what luxury yachting is all about.
Tahiti is truly the hidden gem of all charter destinations in the world! Well known as a home to famous golf courses The Oliver Bréaud International Golf Course and the Moorea Green Pearl Golf Course, Tahiti’s greatest secret is it astoundingly romantic yacht charter opportunities. Boasting pristine beaches and bright turquoise waters overlooked by majestic mountain ranges – chartering in Tahiti really gives you a sense of the sublime. Nowhere in the world could you find a more impressive destination to spend your once in a lifetime honeymoon vacation!
And how better to experience the opulent romance of little-explored Tahiti than aboard NOBLE HOUSE – a stunning 54 metre superyacht that is ideal for a luxury honeymoon vacation in Tahiti! She offers the highest quality in yachting and comfort with many stand-out features including spacious decks, 2 powerful Yamaha jetskis and a luxurious interior to rival that of the Ritz or Waldorf hotels! Her on board service is second to none with an expert Chef who specialises in preparing delicious Asian-fusion meals and a on-hand crew pampering you with cocktails at the jacuzzi bar! A key feature of NOBLE HOUSE is her amazing sundeck which offers the opportunity for lucky newly-weds to observe the glorious sunset over the bays of Tahiti. Surprise your partner with the honeymoon vacation that they deserve!
