We were nearing the end of our Sail Cuba flotilla. It was late as we wrapped up another amazing day discovering the mysteries of beautiful Cuban cayos. In a glass-calm anchorage around a candle-lit saloon table, my cadre of world class Adventurers contemplated sailing paradises. I broached the question, “If we could explore any island group in the world by sail, which would they be?” Dream sailing vacation destinations drifted thick in the air. It didn’t take long to agree on where we were headed next …
The island nation of Tonga stands out as sailing paradise embodied. We have chosen the incomparable Vava’u group in the north. We will experience their exotic and welcoming culture and over 40 snug anchorages, each as idyllic as the last.

The Yachts …
The charter fleet in Tonga is limited which is fine with us, we’ll have the islands to ourselves. We have secured the base’s best catamarans for this Adventure. As so much of our time will be spent above decks, the extra deck space of a cat is great for enjoying paradise; sailing, swimming, snorkeling, dining and chilaxin’. Our yachts will be sailing together as a flotilla.
What is included …
Seven days exploring islands by sailing cat, food onboard, fuel, boat insurance, all charter fees, etc. You will have an easygoing captain aboard tasked with guiding your Adventure and teaching anything cruising you might want to learn. We provision the boats with locally available food. Oh, and Fun!
What isn’t included …
Flights, shore dining and entertainment. Go to our Tonga Travel page for tips. Last I checked flights LAX – VAV roundtrip were $1800. To check flights from your airport try Google.com/flights and for the international parts Fijiairways.com.

Tonga and Samoa are two likely sites where the Polynesian culture has been born – here are located the oldest settlements where the ornate Lapita ceramics are found. In Tonga are located several surprising megalithic structures.
Tonga has been renowned for over 200 years as the ‘Friendly Islands’, providing a warm welcome to enjoy sailing in effortless surroundings. The hospitality provided by the local culture filters down through all aspects of this experience. The sailing conditions of crystal clear waters combined with Tonga’s scenery and refuge for humpback whales all add to an experience that will remain with you!
