A tour of Corsica
The island of beauty is all the more beautiful from the sea. From Cap Corse to the cliffs of Bonifacio, from an unforgettable mooring in the magnificent Gulf of Girolata to the nearby nature reserve of Scandola, a wildlife sanctuary inaccessible by land, follow the winds and allow yourself to be enthralled by the majestic beauty of the Corsican coastline.
The azure coast
Let’s stay in the Mediterranean to admire the picture-postcard landscapes of welcoming Provence and the legendary French Riviera. Along these coastlines, adored worldwide, you’ll see some of the most beautiful (and most expensive) yachts on the planet. Unless you’re invited to a party on one of those yachts, set off and discover the beauty of the many islands and little picturesque ports, from Sainte-Marguerite to Porquerolles and from Saint-Tropez to Bandol.
The Croatian coast
A favourite boat-hire location for recreational sailors, Croatia’s many charms can be truly appreciated from the sea: its preserved coastline, magnificent views, mountains and nature parks, hundreds of islands, all dotted along a coastal landscape which is fast becoming one of the top destinations for sailing in a tranquil setting. A true Croatian experience.
With some 1400 islands scattered on all sides of the country, you’ll need more than one cruise to discover them all. It’s said that there’s an island for everyone, since each one has its own distinctive character. Find yours and go with the flow around the Aegean Sea and the Ionian Sea.
The Greek islands
Of the Tanzanian coast sit Unguja, Pemba and Mafia, the three main islands of the Zanzibar Archipelago, ready to delight you with their unexpected beauty. A paradise for divers and kitesurfers, Zanzibar will surprise you with the wealth of its culture and its ancient heritage.
The idyllic memories will last forever after you discover this paradise loved by Australians and tourists alike thanks to the crystal clear waters of the 74 coral islands which make up this archipelago off the coast of Queensland.

The Whitsunday Islands
The Galápagos Islands
A volcanic archipelago far out in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Ecuador, renowned for its fascinating wildlife, the Galápagos Islands are perfect for those who love unspoilt landscapes, exotic wildlife and scuba diving. At the heart of this fragile ecosystem, you will discover sea lions, iguanas, turtles, and the many endemic species which coexist here in perfect harmony.
The pearl of the Pacific
The white sand beaches of the coral atolls and the turquoise lagoons of the French Polynesian islands make for an idyllic cruise through this paradise which is guaranteed to enchant you, as it did Paul Gauguin and Jacques Brel. From Bora Bora to the Marquesas Islands, a cruise here is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
