Captain Matt Stafford, of 37 metre Masteka 2, which is available for charter with Ocean Alliance and is the first foreign superyacht to be granted a commercial charter permit in New Caledonia, explains how to explore this slice of France in the South Pacific
Day 1: Château Royal Beach Resort
Spend the night before your charter at the Château Royal Beach Resort & Spa and get into the holiday mindset with a treatment at the hotel’s Aqua Royal Spa. The next morning meet Masteka 2 and cruise south to Baie de la Tortue (Turtle Bay) on Ile Ouen. Enjoy an introductory snorkel off the beach looking out for loggerhead turtles, before a secluded night at anchor.
