Vava'u Is Extraordinary

We are often asked about The Kingdom of Tonga and what it has to offer.  We know there are some good websites out there and we aren't in the business of competing with those.  However - for the sake of some interest and to answer some of your questions we are more than happy to share some of what we have learnt about our guests who have Tongan-based businesses.

The following profiles are of businesses who that have used Chathams Pacific, The Friendly Islands Airway.  These are their words, about their businesses.  As with anything we invite you to do your own research, to make your own decisions and remember that Chathams Pacific cannot be held accountable for any misrepresentations or disappointment should you use their services and find that they do not meet your expectations or needs.

Outriggers In Paradise

There is no better way to explore the majestic beauty and amazing sea life of the Vava’u islands than by outrigger canoe.

The Tongans have used outrigger canoes to travel throughout their South Pacific paradise for thousands of years.  Outriggers in Paradise has learned from these ancient peoples and offers guided outrigger canoe and camping tours to experience first-hand one of the most beautiful places in the world. 

A variety of tours are offered to suit all holidays and fitness levels. 

Choose from the gentle Sunset Harbour Tours, the fascinating 1-day Island Discovery; escape on the beautiful Under the Tongan Stars overnight camping tour, or disappear to deserted islands on the 4-day Getaway Tour.  If you’re up to it, try The Ultimate Experience – 2 days of outrigger canoeing followed by 3 days of adventure activities including whaleswimming, kite-surfing, sailing, karting, diving – the list is endless!

Escape to paradise with Outriggers in Paradise!
