Pacific Ocean

The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the Earth's oceanic divisions. Most of the catamaran chartering is in the Southern Pacific Ocean, in tropical or sub-tropical areas, that are easily accessable by air. The distances are far too great to sail your own yacht to these exoctic destinations, so why not fly there and have a fully prepared catamaran waiting for your arrival to sail and have the experience of a life time.

La Paz - Mexico

 

Best Cruising Months:  December - May.


It
is not a coincidence that La Paz means “peace” in Spanish. Many tourists who drive the 1,000 miles from Tijuana on the Baja Peninsula  to La Paz are rewarded with a peaceful city and blissful weather.

La Paz  remains a tranquil, easy-to-love port . It has preserved a nostalgic and provincial atmosphere that makes you think that little has changed here for decades. The area is a beautiful collection of beaches, lively squares and city streets surrounded by desert. Cruising in the Sea of Cortes will have you sailing through crystal blue waters and along a coast of amazing landscapes where the ocher-colored desert meets the ocean's deep blue.
