Sailing the South Pacific Ocean

The region is characterized by its volcanoes, which form the infamous ring of fire. Tectonic activity has created islands characterized by exotic, volcanic peaks topped with lush vegetation. In contrast, other areas consist of idyllic coral atolls encompassed by shallow lagoons with clear waters. 

You can sail Australia’s famous Great Barrier Reef, the planet’s largest coral reef with over 1,000 islands. The Pacific Ocean is also home to the world’s largest lagoon, in New Caledonia. Tahiti’s endless lagoon islands offer many opportunities to swim with some of our most beautiful marine life.

Visit enchanting Tahiti while sailing the Pacific islands, understand Kanak culture in New Caledonia’s Loyalty Islands or learn about the Ngaro Aboriginal people of the Whitsunday Islands. If you love snorkeling and diving, then our Pacific boat rentals are perfect for you. You’ll be able to get up close to manta rays, turtles, sharks and brightly colored tropical fish.

Absolutely amazing! Fred + Isabelle were so accommodating and did so much for us. Isabelle’s food was incredible. Thanks so much!


Exumas Cabin

Excellent. Very professional and great service!


Antigua Bareboat

Just what we needed coming out of a year of lockdown, to see new places and connect with nature. Highly recommended for your next sailing adventure!


St. Martin Bareboat

Excellent cruise and very good stay. Skipper attentive, very pleasant and very professional.


Guadeloupe Skippered

Just returned from another fantastic sailing week at your base in Pula and I would like to thank everyone involved for making this possible on such short notice and without any problems.


Croatia Bareboat

The marina itself is a perfect starting point with great facilities! The Lagoon 42 was in good condition and the skipper was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area.”


Spain Skippered

What an AMAZING experience. We’ve just returned from a week long skippered charter from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian. Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu Old Town were beautiful and the secluded bays we had the pleasure of visiting thanks to our local skipper, Nicholas, were simply overwhelming. Fly and flops are no longer for us – we’ll be chartering with DYC for the foreseeable future.


Greece Skippered

Our group of 10 had an AMAZING time in French Polynesia from May 21-28, 2022! The food was amazing, our captain and chef, husband and wife: Henry and Mehee (sp), were incredible and the whole experience on board was a dream! We can’t wait to book another trip through DYC


Tahiti Crewed Premium

DYC provided a great sailing experience for my extended family on 2 monos out of Scrub Island. The boats were in great shape and preformed perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful. Having worked for a number of charter companies over the years DYC is one of the best.


British Virgin Islands Bareboat

Baja is my favorite place now. There was something for everyone: sailed under northerlies with mostly calm evenings, snorkeled, fished, bummed it on the sandy beaches, enchanted by pelicans feeding, greeted by the barking sea lions and explored the Ispiritu Santo island geology. DYC La Paz base provided competent professional support with a well provisioned and maintained boat. We were nourished well by an onboard cook arranged with DYC freeing us all for more play. A vacation and an adventure connected with nature.


Mexico Crewed Premium

All staff were fantastic and made our trip very memorable. Incredibly friendly and welcoming, the food was amazing. The service throughout the trip was always first class!


Thailand Cabin

Absolutely recommended. Perfect service and set up. Will charter again and will recommend Dream Yacht Charter anytime.


Turkey Bareboat

I just returned from 3 weeks of amazing sailing with my family on one of your catamarans in Sardinia. I would like to express my thanks to our skipper Simone and Daniela, our hostess.


Sardinia Bareboat

For a first cruise as a skipper, the Mediterranean is great. The Dream Yacht Charter service is too!


France Bareboat

We had an incredible trip and actually got engaged on the first night of our sail! We will certainly be back one day. Thank you for getting us ready for our charter. We were definitely beginners but he gave us a very thorough but very easy to follow training and it gave us a lot of confidence.



The on board experience was way beyond our expectations. Isabelle provided exceptional three course meals. We could not believe her creativity and delicious meals. Thomas was an excellent skipper. He was always on the lookout for our needs. Thanks guys!” Spira, New Caledonia bareboat with crew charter


New Caledonia Bareboat

Yet again another fantastic sail with another great crew. Thanks again to a great captain and cook. Was totally fantastic.


Seychelles Easy Crewed

It’s always a pleasure sailing with DYC in the UK. Great team, great boats, great sailing. Very flexible and work hard to make your trip a success. Many thanks.

Unforgettable spots to snorkel and beaches. Very experienced crew. Highly recommend.
