We stayed on Ron’s boat for 1 night and 2 days! There were 7 of us and it was brilliant the whole time! His food was amazing and Ron was super friendly! We got to sea great snorkelling spots and we were able to go to resorts on islands who happily welcomed us! I highly recommend for any large groups who want to travel the Fijian islands effortlessly!
My husband and I spent 6 days with Ron and Joti and had a wonderful time. It was so great to have Joti aboard and to hear about her growing up in Fiji and all the things she showed and taught us. Ron is truly and expert sailor and we felt completely at ease everywhere we went. They had planned daily activities for us to experience each day. We can’t say enough how great our trip was and highly recommend sailing with Freewind - Ron and Joti.
Ron’s boat was perfect for our family with children to enjoy our time on the Fijian waters. Ron tailored the trip to ensure all our needs were ticked off, from sailing for the grandparents to a sand island for the children. Ron’s boat is set up perfectly for hosting, he’s got great communication right from initial inquiry to ensuring you’re safely in a taxi after your trip ends, his cooking / food is awesome, and most importantly he’s an excellent host and top bloke. Thanks Ron, see you next time we’re in town!
Wow! What a memorable experience! My husband and I stayed over night on their sailboat during our honeymoon to Fiji. Ron built his sailboat and is so knowledgeable about sailing. We spent both days snorkeling in a vibrant coral reef. At night, Jordie took us coconut tasting on one of the islands, and I ate a mango right off the tree. One of the best mangoes I have ever eaten. Jordie and Ron cooked us incredible meals and made us feel so welcomed! I would highly recommend this experience for something off the beaten path. Thank you to both Ron and Jordie for such great memories!
For three airline girls who hate being tourists, this was ideal. Ron and Jodi treated us like family and had a blast doing so. I hadn’t laughed that hard in some time. It’s a perfect way to spend my friends bday. We will be back for more fun hopefully sooner than later ;)
Growing up in new Zealand I had no choice but be involve in the sea,first as boat builder then onto boat deliveries, commercial fishing, and then into the charter boat industry. During my times off from working on the sea I would sail the coast of new Zealand and the south pacific islands, sometimes alone and sometimes with family. I use to make annual migrations to the pacific islands to escape the New Zealand winter and on doing so covered many thousands of miles and gain lots of experience. My love for the south pacific, particularly Fiji made me move their permanently and create my present business. Was involved in local youth sailing coaching, so on our cruises would pleased to pass on sailing tuition. I hold New Zealand and Fijian maritime commercial qualifications and including engineering certification.
