The Solomon Islands

Overall a perfect yacht charter destination for those looking to escape city life and witness the extraordinary in one of the most charming places on earth.

Adventures that involve surfing, diving, fishing and bird-watching, are found in abundance and ideal to experience on a superyacht charter here. The culture in Papua New Guinea is untouched and unique - remote tribes uphold traditions through lively ceremonies - visitors can view these colourful spectacles and immerse themselves in the palpable tribal passion.
The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef and South Pacific Islands are the perfect opportunity to enjoy an island hopping superyacht adventure. The diverse underwater world teems with marine creatures, so it is no surprise that snorkelling and scuba diving are top picks. Turtles, seabirds, sharks and whales thrive in this happy ecosystem set in idyllic beauty. To experience incredible watersports opportunities whilst getting up close with some of the unique wonders this planet has to offer, this is the place.
Black Marlin Fishing
The 2017 Black Marlin Fishing Season (Sept - Dec) is set to be the best ever by all accounts. Reports recently have recorded catches of 1100lb+ Marlin, along with some massive Tuna, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi. SPIRIT represents the largest volume yacht on the Great Barrier Reef, offering outstanding stability with a 35' beam - perfectly combined with exceptional knowledge from Captain and crew. A unique opportunity to tick this off your big fish bucket-list.
Minke Whale Spotting
June to August is the time to spot Dwarf Minke Whales as they migrate to deeper waters through the Great Barrier Reef. The thrill of watching such a magificent creature close-up is the opportunity of a lifetime. Naturally inquisitive, Minke Whales often linger close to boats, divers and snorkellers whilst "spy hopping"; purposefully lifting their heads out the water and watching what is happening on the surface.
SPIRIT will also be the ideal platform for those attending the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018. Either to unwind after the stresses and strains of hard-fought competition or simply as an extended post-games break. From the Gold Coast or Brisbane, just a short flight is easily made to join SPIRIT in maybe the Whitsundays or Cairns. Imagine stepping on board for sun, fun and sundowners, or perhaps, an exciting reef experience with watersports galore.
