French Polynesia Yacht Charter Guide
Spanning more than two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean, French Polynesia is vast. But made up of five different island groups, a luxury yacht charter here can focus on just one collection of islands. The most popular is the Society Islands, home to idyllic gems such as Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea renowned for their secluded bliss. Scuba divers will love the Tuamotu Archipelago for its clear waters and iridescent coral while the volcanic landscapes and sheltered lagoons define the mysterious Marquesas Islands. Further off the beaten track are the Austral Islands steeped in culture and tradition, and the untouched and wonderfully wild Gambier Archipelago.
