7. The South Pacific 

From Tahiti to the Cook Islands and Fiji, the South Pacific is one of the best destinations for those looking to truly get away from it all. Escape to the remote Pacific Ocean islands to enjoy spectacular snorkeling through vivid coral reefs, or try your hand at windsurfing along the incredible shores. Next, take in French Polynesian culture through music and traditional dance, while you enjoy your exquisitely tasty meals. And don’t just savor the fresh fish, have a try at deep-sea fishing and bring home a catch yourself. 

In Tahiti, there’s more than just action on the water. Spend your day hiking to waterfalls, ruins, and more along breathtaking trails of the islands’ interior. You can practice your photography skills at each stunning viewpoint, where you’ll have ocean views for miles. Similarly, Fiji provides something for the whole family but is also perfect for your honeymoon or big anniversary celebration. 

For even more sailing adventures, don’t forget about Australia and New Zealand. The Great Barrier Reef, Whitsunday Islands, and otherworldly landscapes await you in this unique and captivating corner of the world.

Let a luxury yacht rental transport you to a winter fairytale in Alaska. Unspoiled natural beauty teeming with larger-than-life marine life will welcome you with open arms. Glide along the pristine waters fully engulfed by the bright sights and sharp sounds of this arctic playground. Witness whales conversing in front of an unreal backdrop of glaciers and serene coastlines. Take a day trip to go hiking and see the spectacular wild Caribou roam. Or, go fishing for wild-caught salmon, the freshest you’ll ever taste.

Alaska’s atmosphere, clean air, and slow pace of life will undoubtedly revive you and your senses. 

9. Mexico

Visit Mexico like never before from the comfort of your private luxury rental. The Sea of Cortez and the Mexican Riviera await you on your next Mexican vacation.

Visit the island of Espirito Santo or stop in La Paz and soak in the culture, artwork, and delicious Mexican fare.  

Further south, you’ll find spas, endless beaches, and high-end restaurants along the famed Mexican Riviera. Visit Cabo San Lucas, Acapulco, Puerta Vallarta, and more from your private yacht rental. Take in as much or as little energy and nightlife from your convenient position just off the coast of this popular vacation destination. 

10. Belize

One of the world’s most incredible diving spots in the world would have to be Belize’s Blue Cenote.

Clear waters with visibility exceeding hundreds of feet in depth showcase wild fish and sealife like you’ve never seen before. This UNESCO site is not to be missed.
