Check in process and customer service is great! Easy to provision boat, and they gave us few things already included.
Sailing in French Polynesia is like a dream! Highly recommend!
Alquilamos un catamarán Catana 47 del año 2011 en Raiatea, Polinesia Francesa. El barco excelente, muy cómodo. No funcionaba el desalinizador (water maker) y el aire acondicionado no funcionaba demasiado bien.
Fuimos muy bien atendidos, las islas que visitamos en 10 días (Raiatea, Taha, Bora Bora y Huahine) espectaculares!!!
Ian at Globe Sailor did a great job finding and booking a charter with TYC. Our family had an amazing 10 days on a Saba 50 sailing around Raiatea, Taaha, Huahine, and Bora Bora. Once Ian got the charter set up there was a seamless transition to TYC who organized the specifics around the itinerary and menu. Our skipper and hostess were amazing - fun to talk to and learn more about the local culture and did a great job making our family feel special and safe. I originally hesitated on including the hostess option but would 100% take the option again. Not that many restaurants on land, and our hostess made incredible meals typically with local fresh product and presentation. If we did it again over December Holidays would take TYC advice to meet the boat in Huahine and sail West as we met the boat in Raiatea and had a pretty choppy ride upwind to Huahine (and glad we made the effort because it is a great island) before coming back to the other islands. Last thing is we were a bit worried about being in French Polynesia during the rainy season - we had daily squalls for parts of days during the first half of the trip but didn’t impact our ability to do anything, and then second half of trip very little rain. We would 100% use both Globe Sailor and TYC again to book a charter.
This cat was very comfortable and furnished with your necessities. The charter company was very organized and has a great operation. Everything went smoothly and checking in and out was completed in minutes. Our skipper was outstanding. He was so knowledgeable regarding the winds and the best times to sail crossings. If u need to hire a skipper ask for Gwen.
