We look at the top five sailing destinations around the world for 2016.

With more global sailing destinations accessible to charterers than ever before, you can choose exotic destinations for your sailing adventure at home, close to home or in far-flung corners of the world. 

  1. Tonga.
    With Fijian Airlines opening up two flights a week from Fiji to Tonga, this tropical paradise has just become increasingly accessible in 2016. With an abundance of tropical islands in the Archipelago, snorkelling and diving the coral reefs of Tonga is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Add the friendly locals to the mix and this destination offers that true South Pacific charter holiday.
     
  2. Canada.
    The May-September charter season gives you the chance to experience the northern summer! Set sail from base at Vancouver Island and explore this rugged wilderness paradise. The wildlife you will come across here is out of this world - grizzly bears, humpback whales, orca, and more. Try something new this year and book your Canadian charter!
     
  3. Croatia.
    Fast becoming the jewel in the charter world crown for its combination of deep rooted culture and amazing scenery, Croatia is one of the most popular sailing destinations in the world. Experience clear waters perfect for snorkelling, sheer cliffs surrounding protected inlets making for the perfect overnight anchorage, all combined with ancient architecture and stunning marina cities. A destination not to be missed.
     
  4. Australia.
    With 74 islands and access to amazing diving and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays, Queensland, make for the perfect charter location. Experience what David Attenborough - producer of a masterful documentary series on the region - calls one of his favourite places on earth.
     
  5. Belize, Central America.
    Famous for its coral reefs and world-class diving, Belize is the charter destination most suited to those who wants something a little off the beaten track. Visit in April or May and scuba dive with the majestic whale sharks at the Gladden Split. This cruising ground is abundant with coral cays and deserted islands, making it the perfect place to disconnect and relax with your crew.
