Bay of Islands Yacht Charter Information

The Bay of Islands, located off the northeast coast of New Zealand, offer a prime location for yacht charter. October through May is the best season to head out to sea in the Bay of Islands, with calm water and clear line-of-sight conditions. The Bay holds around 300 islands, almost all of which have moorings in the harbors. The islands themselves are spectacularly lush (as well as many which are uninhabited and can only be reached by boat). The coastline of mainland New Zealand is equally beautiful, and while sailing or yacht chartering you will be able to stop in a number of different harbors. Penguins and dolphins are just some of the varied marine life you will have the opportunity to see in the Bay of Islands – with sheltered and calm waters, this is a sailing paradise that shouldn’t be missed!
