Overview

Come sailing in the protected and calm waters of the Vava'u Islands with our traditional sailing vessel HM Salote. Our first stop is beautiful Nuku Island for snorkeling and beach combing. From there we go to Port Muerelle for more snorkeling and lunch. Last stop is Swallows Cave for snorkeling you don't want to miss. Shade and a head (bathroom) are provided.
