PACIFIC NORTHWEST 

Superyacht charters need not always be about soft white sands and turquoise waters. There is an ever-growing demand from certain charter demographics to venture beyond the traditional routes and explore the world’s remote wildernesses. This is exactly what the Pacific Northwest offers in abundance.  

Alaska and British Columbia provide a captivating base for exploration that would entice any nature lover and wildlife enthusiast. By means of luxury superyacht, our guests have the opportunity to access the most secluded and exclusive corners of this natural paradise.

 

Alaska is a remarkably distinctive superyacht experience, epitomizing adventure as you navigate the Inside Passage on an ice-breaking voyage through a frozen forest of glittering glaciers, surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Be sure to look out for the extraordinary wildlife, including eagles, bears, whales, and seals, all seen from the comfort of your yacht.  

British Columbia is a northern yachting paradise that encompasses an impressive expanse of thrilling landscapes best explored by yacht. In particular, the Indian Arm is a spectacular yachting experience where you can cruise through a panoramic glacial fjord characterized by alpine lakes, entrancing waterfalls, and creeks.  

 

THE KIMBERLEY 

Australia’s Kimberley region is often referred to as the last natural frontier and it is easy to see why. This rugged wilderness tempts superyachts with the prospect of unique and unforgettable expeditions, perfect for yacht guests seeking a fresh adventure.

This is quite simply a charter experience that cannot be replicated in any other region of the world. Dramatic red cliffs tower over the pristine cruising grounds, with a staggering wealth of scenic anchorages that provide a gateway to enlightening experiences.  

Guided tours by local Indigenous people will provide a different perspective on Australia’s rich culture and history, visiting rock art dating back 50,000 years and immersing yourselves in tales of a culture that has survived for centuries. Of course, you are never far away from a swim in the freshwater lagoons or a hike through the enchanting rainforest.
