You can’t get more ‘off the beaten track’ than 550km off the shore of Costa Rica. Here lies Cocos Island. With mountainous terrain and over 200 waterfalls, this island boasts breathtaking nature views. And on top of this, aside from Costa Rican Park Rangers, this island is uninhabited.

Surrounded by deep waters, Cocos Island is renowned for its magnificent marine life. Hammerhead sharks, rays and dolphins are regular visitors of the stunning destination. The tropical climate (on average 26 °C) pairs perfectly with a dip into one of the four islands’ four bays. It’s no surprise PADI has consistently named Cocos Island one of the world’s top diving spots.

2. Antarctica Expedition 

A yacht expedition in Antarctica is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most people and even in this remote location, your guests can enjoy the luxury of a superyacht charter. Antarctica is truly unique in its landscapes and wildlife. Whether it’s trekking across the terrain or ice diving with a specialist instructor, this is the setting for an unforgettable holiday.

3. Central and South America

The majestic wildlife of the Galapagos Islands is unparalleled. On the other hand, Brazil is notorious for its nightlife. What we are trying to say is whatever your client desires, Central and South America are sure to have something that fits the bill.

You might think that areas in Central and South America are hard to reach. However, venturing to these off the beaten track destinations by yacht is easier than ever before. There are many extraordinary superyachts already based in these areas awaiting your arrival.

4. The Virgin Islands

The Virgin Islands offer white-sand beaches, natural seawater pools and coral reefs: It’s the ultimate holiday destination. There’s something for everyone to enjoy, whether sunbathing under coconut palm trees or exploring the historic architecture.
