New Caledonia 5 Day South Lagoon Island Cruise
This is a cruise for people with 5 days to explore the New Caledonia's South Lagoon, Baie du Prony and Ile Ouen. You can do it on your own sailing vessel, charter a sail or power boat in Noumea, or hire a smaller motor boat and camp on the islands.
From late July until September you will have the possibility of seeing whales in this region.
The distances are reasonably short, just a few hours sailing for each leg of the journey, and the rewards are spectactular with a menu of white sand beaches, sparkling clear water and colorful coral reefs. While these anchorages are excellent in nice weather, they can be hazardous in unusual weather conditions. Fortunately you are within an couple of hours sailing of protected anchorages from anywhere on this cruise.
