True exploration is about more than just what you see; it’s about what you learn, too. Elevate your superyacht charter experience with an on-the-ground specialist.
You’ll know Montenegro for its world-class superyacht facilities and sun-drenched natural beauty in summer, but in winter it’s also a stunning ski and snow sports destination – one of the last true wildernesses on the European continent. Forgo the chair-lifts and get straight from deck to summit by helicopter for an ascent that’s as exhilarating as the descent. A heli-ski expert will guide you to the very best untracked powder slopes among Montengro’s rugged black mountains and dramatic peaks for a true freeskiing adventure amid awe-inspiring scenery.
A superyacht charter to the polar Arctic region is an experience of extremes. Immerse yourself in your dramatic surroundings and dive in the light of the midnight sun among the sublime sea ice formations with the expert assistance of an Ice Dive Master. You will need to be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver to brave this unique and challenging diving experience. Explore the sea floor among sea butterflies, brightly coloured star fish, mesmerising jellyfish, otherworldly pods of narwhal, bowhead whales, harp seals and beluga as they congregate at the floe edge. Known as the ‘line of life’, where land-fast ice meets the open water of the Arctic Ocean, this is one of the most dynamic ecosystems in the world, and rare sightings include walrus and polar bears. It’s natural that many who experience ice diving also share a passion for underwater photography as the opportunity to create spectacular images are unprecedented. Pack your fisheye macro lens to capture the extraordinary dancing sea angels and other bioluminescent creatures.
For a family charter in the undiscovered Eden of Papua New Guinea, an on-board naturalist will elevate both your experience and your understanding.

From helping children to identify the exotic birds of paradise in the Tari Basin and the Tari Gap in the Highlands to the world’s largest butterflies in the rainforests of West Irian, a naturalist will bring your charter to life.
