There are four sea kayaks for coastal adventures and exploration, two windsurfers, diving and snorkelling equipment, a dive compressor, water skis and plenty of fishing tackle. If guests want to have a go at scuba diving, the crew can make all the necessary arrangements for a dive master to come on board.

Between islands you can reel out a couple of lines on game rods and catch wahoo or mahi mahi, two large Pacific game fish- great for eating! Other gifts from the sea include coral trout caught from a small lure, lobster and, in Fiji, the delicious mud crab. At the end of a long, hot day there's nothing better than cooking your catch on the barbecue.

You can take the tender to shore along with a picnic, take a walk on many of the islands that dot the Pacific and enjoy some of the best sleep you will have had for years.

The staterooms provide a high level of comfort beyond air-conditioning and stabilisers. They feature a large master stateroom and a further two guest staterooms all with beautifully detailed ensuite facilities. A further forward triple-berth cabin is available should additional accommodation be required. Escapade is perfectly suited to three couples travelling together, or a family group of two adults and three children.

Meals on board are generous and wholesome with an emphasis on fresh local ingredients and flavours. Escapade has plenty of modern entertainment amenities ­ television, stereo, electronic piano and video.

The crew are friendly, extremely experienced and capable. Trained to provide a high level of hands-on service you will find them only too willing to help ensure your Escapade charter is a wonderful experience.
