There are three well marked, safe approaches through the barrier reef and New Caledonia's Lagoon:
Dumbea Pass, 12nm west of Noumea
Passes de Boulari, 15nm south of Noumea
Havannah Pass, 39nm east of Noumea.
You will find downloadable charts, links to online maps, and exact routes for these approaches in to your free Captains Account..
The Cruising Guide to New Caledonia program provides high resolution image maps, navigational markers, lights, route coordinates, and approach images for these routes and provides sailing directions for over 212 anchorages throughout New Caledonia and the Loyalty Islands.
All vessels 60m or longer in overall length require a pilot when first navigating New Caledonia's lagoon or the Loyalty Islands or Isle of Pines. After clearance, vessels between 60 and 80 meters in overall length do not require a pilot for navigating New Caledonia's lagoon subject to certain restrictions.
For further information on Pilots and to download charts showing the pilot pick-up stations and to make reservations for pilotage, please log in to your Captains Account.
All vessels are required to fly the yellow quarantine flag when entering the New Caledonia lagoon prior to clearance.
Noumea is New Caledonia's only authorized port of entry but Noumea Ocean is able to assist if superyachts wish to clear into the Isle of Pines, Ouvea, or Lifou. Please log into your Captains Account for more detailed information on arriving in New Caledonia.
