What You Can Expect:

Evening Tour (starts at 4:30pm and ends at 7:00pm)

The Twilight Cruise is the perfect way to end your day of sightseeing in Port Vila. As the sun sets, the busy Bay of Port Vila is transformed into a romantic and magnificent place you’ll never forget. We start the journey from Port Vila harbour where you will board our 15m long Catamaran, called Vaka Motu.

While we are sailing along the beautiful coastline of Port Vila you will have time to absorb the thousand different shades of crystal-clear turquoise water. Learn about the cultural history of Vanuatu from your English-speaking guide, drink Kava, Vanuatu’s traditional drink as you soak in the magnificent sunset only paradise can offer. Kava is a root that has been used ceremonially, medicinally and recreationally for over 2500 years in Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia.

You will have a personal guide who can tell you all the unique facts about Vanuatu and can point out amazing photo opportunities. Lightweight lifejackets are available onboard if required.

One Day Tour (8:30-09:00am and ends at 5:30pm at our mooring)

Explore the beautiful islands of Efate, Survivor beach and Mangaliliu village in just one day, on our beautiful Vaka Motu. The journey starts from Port Vila Harbour where you will board our 15m long Catamaran, called Vaka Motu. This traditional Polynesian canoe has been designed especially for inter-island journeys and is entirely environmentally sustainable. It runs on wind, solar panel and coconut oil-powered engine.

With morning tea or coffee and local tropical fruit on the way, the journey begins in the calm waters of Mele Bay, heading towards Devils Point where you might be able to spot the native species of dugong or dolphin. After that, we sail towards the mysterious Eretoka Island (known locally as Hat Island) where you will learn more about the ancient history of Vanuatu’s most famous chief: Roy Mata. We continue our journey through the passage of Lelepa Islands where we will head in to shore on the village of Mangaliliu. While enjoying a traditional community made lunch, you will have the opportunity to snorkel on the reef and enjoy the outstanding, colourful, marine life, and especially the giant clams, or relax in the shade on the pristine beach and enjoy the view of the crystal-clear turquoise water. Mangaliliu has been and still is part of a ocean conservation project which is reintroducing threatened species of Giant Clams.
We continue our journey in between Lelepa Island and Havannah Harbour, a place full of history and decreed World Heritage by Unesco. On our way back through the harbour, we will stop at the Survivor beach on the coast where the famous TV show was filmed.

Once back in the bay, you will enjoy a fresh coconut or a shell of the famous kava. Kava is a root that has been used ceremonially, medicinally and recreationally for over 2500 years in Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia. Enjoy this traditional drink on board, while sailing back to Port Vila Harbour as the sun sets.

What To Expect Onboard:

The 50 feet "Vaka Motu" Sailing Catamaran can host up to 16 people. This traditional Polynesian canoe has been designed especially for inter-islands journeys and is entirely environmentally sustainable. It runs on wind, solar panels and coconut oil-powered engine.
