THE DESERTED ISLANDS BEKON YOU!

There are many ways to experience the charm of Vava’u paradise, but the original way is the best---by canoe. Islanders traversed these islands for centuries in their dugout canoes. They knew how to use the wind and how to paddle through the passes, using the tides… and still do today. The canoe always has been the island dwellers tool for fishing and transportation, but now it can be used by the tourist for entertainment. The experience is exulurating when you are paddling quietly past some nesting birds or when a flying fish leaps to check you out. Facing the setting sun with only the sound of your paddles, and maybe a playful dolphin swimming along side is a sensation you will long remember. You will never forget the sight and sound of the awesome Humpback as they surface to blow a fountain of steam in front of you. The value of your entire holiday is made clear in the moments of these experiences.

You can take extended trips and spend nights in the middle of paradise on a lush and deserted islands. This natural encounter will certainly rival any five star hotel experience. Their local guides will take care of your needs and certainly know the interesting sites and routes of travel that reveal the treasures of Vava’u.

After a few days of natural water travel you might enjoy the equivalent on land. Here you will see the remote villages where you can get the best deal on local made handicrafts, directly from the artist. Admittedly, in the middle of nature you might find the company of a barking dog or a mosquito to deal with, but there are remedies for any intrusion. In the end, your mosquito bite will be a subtle reminder of the wonderful time you had living life to its fullest in the warm and friendly islands of Vava’u.

Don’t miss this opportunity for some fantastic fun and adventure. Young or old, all you need to be is fit and the rest comes easy.

Courses from beginner to Career…

Because popular dive sites such as coral reefs and wrecks are typically not near land, most diving is done from boats. In some locations, however, divers can enter the water from shore. On a typical outing, the divers decide beforehand how long they will remain underwater and how deep they will descend. While the divers are underwater, at least one person serves as a spotter by remaining on the boat or on shore. All groups, whether diving from a boat or from shore, are required to fly a diver down flag (a red flag with a white diagonal slash) to alert boaters that people are underwater.
