Come explore Vanuatu’s magical untouched archipelago of over 80 coral fringed, rainforest clad islands where you will experience Island life and culture as it was before white settlers. Islanders living in grass huts, fishing their bays in dugout canoes and using the traditional kustom (witch doctor magic) you will see lifestyles that many thought did not exist in the 21st century.
Our friendly crew will escort you from the airport to your fully provisioned yacht where the adventure will begin.
We leave from the Yacht Charters Vanuatu Base in Port Vila and sail north to Havannah Harbour where we will anchor in a secluded bay for some snorkelling and a beach walk to unwind and get you in the swing of things.
We head out to Moso Island to some beautiful bays for diving and swimming with a BBQ and beach walk. Then onto Pele Island for a secure night anchorage.
We take some time to explore Pele Island, meet the locals and visit Nguna and Kakula Islands. If the surf is good we have a beautiful little reef break for the dudes or if the wind is up this is a great place for kite surfing or kayaking.
We explore the northern group and can either stay at Malakula or Ambrym island. Both of these are beautiful locations with spectacular anchorages, great fishing and diving and even the possibility to have a local guide take you up the active volcano on Ambrym for a truly unique experience.
We sail south again for Epi Island, Emae and Cook Reef for more diving and fishing or just a sunbeam and relax while sailing along through turquoise waters if you prefer. Sashimi is often pulled in freshly from the trolling lines with plenty of wasabi and soy to go round!
We continue to sail south, this time stopping at Lelepa Island lagoon for a last dive and fish. Weather depending a quite and safe anchorage is often found in the passage around the northern tip of Lelepa.
By this time you are fully chilled and living on island time. We sail south, back home to the YCV base in Port Vila where our staff will be waiting to help you disembark and take you on to the next destination where ever that may be.
Departing from the Yacht Charters Vanuatu Base in the tranquil waters of Port Vila your skipper and crew will sail you to the beautiful Havannah Harbour where you will spend a relaxing 3 days and 2 nights away.Our courteous staff will cater from your every need from picking you up at the international airport to preparing and provisioning your yacht so that when you arrive all there is to do is to climb on board for a relaxing beverage and enjoy the adventure!Following airport pickup and settling in aboard we will up anchor on Friday morning and head through the beautiful Mele Bay, around Devil’s Point and up into Havannah Harbour. That afternoon we will snorkel on beautiful coral gardens, enjoy beach walks and take in the local sights, before your crew prepare a sumptuous dinner of local produce. The yacht will anchor in a picturesque secluded anchorage for the night before making an early start the following day.On Saturday morning we sail out to one of the offshore islands where crystal clear waters and untouched coral bobbies meet the rainforest and white sands, where we will spend the day diving walking and exploring (or even just reading and relaxing taking working on the tan on the foredeck). Saturday night will be anchored in a private cove, with only the tropical fish and stars to watch on before sailing home via more uninhabited islands the following day.
Well guys, this is our favourite package! Here we sit down with you and design the dream holiday for you depending on your dreams and desires. For some this may be sipping cocktails in Havannah Harbour and romantic beach walks and calm coral snorkelling while for others hiking through jungles and up the side of active volcanoes to peer into the cauldron of boiling lava and feel the guttural growls of the earth may be more your thing.During certain times of the year the majestic Pentecost Island comes alive with ritual and ceremony as the initiation of young men with land diving occurs. The bamboo towers must be carefully constructed for the right mixture of strength and flexibility and the vines must be of just the right age for the men to perform this amazing feat.Sailing south to more remote islands is the beautiful Island or Erramango, where the locals will take you to sacred caves or their forefathers and show island living that has changed little for centuries; hear the stories of the missionaries and the Blackbirders and the slave galleys. Further south is the amazing island of Tanna where Captain Cook stopped in Port Resolution. This is the gateway to climb Mt Yassur, the world’s most accessible active volcano.The great thing about Vanuatu, apart from having the happiest people on the planet, is the magnificent diversity of land and sea that you can experience while travelling through the archipelago of 83 islands; from 5 star resorts, to places as remote as any on the planet, the nature and beauty is spectacular and breathtaking. There is something for everyone and what better way to see it than by luxury yacht with your skipper and crew to provide a safe and memorable passage.If time is a problem and you want to maximise the Vanuatu expedition experience talk to us about the one way expeditions. With these cruises we spend the week or however long you wish to travel and end up the island of Santo in the north or Tanna in the south where we arrange for you to fly back to Port Vila while we bring the yacht home at a later time. Anyway, the world (or in this case Vanuatu) is your oyster, so let us help you to plan the trip of a lifetime!
