Adventure

In the Field

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.

Heli-skiing Expert, Montenegro

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.

Ice Diver, Arctic

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. Slipping into the water through a hole drilled in the ice, you’ll submerge to discover the spectacular sights of this secret aquamarine world. From frozen subaquatic waterfalls, underwater snowfall and magical ice structures to the inky depths of the unknown below, you’ll see the world anew with this matchless 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.

Naturalist, Papua New Guinea

For a family charter in the undiscovered Eden of Papua New Guinea, an on-board naturalist will elevate both your experience and your understanding. Celebrated for its extraordinary flora and fauna, Papua New Guinea is home to over 200 species of mammal and more than 650 species of bird. 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.

Marine Biologist, Raja Ampat

Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelagic country of 13,000 islands with over twenty percent of the world’s coral reefs, is an unmissable superyacht charter destination. Indonesia’s Raja Ampat archipelago boasts the greatest marine biodiversity on Earth, with 550 species of coral and 1,300 species of fish recorded here. An onboard marine biologist will help you to understand the environment and habitat around you, from explaining the threats to the endangered turtles of the Gili Islands to identifying the different species of whale and dolphin in the region.
