Remote Islands


Ocean Voyages has arranged charters and custom expeditions to remote islands in the far reaches of the world's oceans. Exploring a distant and uninhabited island where few have gone is one of the great features of a nautical adventure. The other great features are scurvy, mutiny, piracy, and shipwreck, although these are not as frequent as they used to be.
Galapagos Islands

Galapagos Islands | Yachts available »

The Galapagos Archipelago is one of the last great natural places on earth. A voyage to this spectacular destination is an opportunity to experience firsthand some of the most unique and accessible wildlife found anywhere. Our Galapagos programs offer an opportunity to visit this famous archipelago, not in large groups of tourists, but in small intimate parties with captains and guides who have lived and explored these islands for many years.


Pitcairn Island

Pitcairn Island | Yachts available »

As you sail towards Pitcairn, you approach one of the remotest of the world’s inhabited islands, lying halfway between New Zealand and the Americas. Four thousand and eight hundred kilometres of open ocean separate you from them; a few archipelagos lie to the north; and the southern seas are empty to the ice caps of Antarctica.


Seychelles

Seychelles | Yachts available »

The Seychelles, located northeast of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, are beautiful islands, little visited, and surrounded by clear blue waters and fantastic dive sites. Since the 9th century, when Arab seafarers first sailed the uncharted waters off the east coast of Africa, the Seychelles has been visited by a succession of visitors such as Phoenician traders, Polynesian adventurers, a Chinese flotilla, and pirates.


Cocos Island

Cocos Island

Ocean Voyages offers expeditions to Cocos Island, lying 300 miles off Costa Rica in the Pacifc. Long a favourite hideaway for marauding pirates awaiting Spanish treasure galleons, Cocos is today part of Costa Rica’s national park service and the world’s largest uninhabited island- a lush verdant preserve with over 200 waterfalls, many of which plunge directly into the sea.


Socotra Islands

Socotra Islands

The Galapagos of the Indian Ocean, the Socotra Islands are one of the most isolated groups in the world. The islands contain many strange and unique endemic species and exceptional diving. The lack of a natural harbor or anchorage, rampant piracy, and two annual monsoons make access difficult but the islands offer unique rewards to the adventurous traveler.


Maldives

Maldives

The Maldivian Archipelago is made up of 2,000 islands, resting in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, and renowned for snorkeling and scuba diving. Each island is surrounded by its own coral reef enclosing a shallow lagoon of turquoise water. Outside the reef, the ocean bed drops down thousands of feet.
