Your Dream Vacation is Here

Vava'u, Tonga Kayaking Trips

Situated approximately 240 kilometres north of Tongatapu, the Vava’u Island Group is a smattering of 50-odd islands, in an area 23 by 25 kilometres, protected by a semi-circular reef. The islands are separated by reefs or open water, but are not great paddling distances apart.
Tonga is in the top 10 beaches and small islands for travel in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2014 guide. Shh, don’t tell everyone!

Ha'apai 11-Day Tropical Expedition

Our longest expedition, the Ha'apai Tropical Expedtion remains our flagship adventure tour in this very special Conservation Area. Weather and sea conditions permitting, we paddle the length of the Lifuka Archipelago. Our base camp at the southernmost uninhabited island of Uanukuhahake is about as remote as one can get in Tonga! Even the ubiquitous coconut tree struggles to survive in this wild, windswept environment. Though nothing stops the nesting green turtle's annual return. Includes 2 nights' accommodation pre-/post-kayak tour.
