The Islands of Vava'u with their safe anchorages and secluded coves offer one of the world's finest year-round sailing holidays in the Pacific. Melinda Sea Adventures has been offering multiple day live-aboard and day sailing trips since 1999. Accommodation onboard one of our beautiful skippered sailing yachts gives you a unique opportunity to fully explore this stunning tropical island paradise in luxury, or you can charter one of our smaller sailboats that are available as bareboats to explore on your own. There are 40 stunning islands in the Vava'u group. Anchor near a different island each night, snorkel colorful coral reefs, hike through lush tropical forests, explore a stretch of beach, poking into tidepools full of marine life, visit uninhabited islands where the birds nest or visit a Tongan village. Dine at one of our unique outer island restaurants or stay onboard dining under the stars far from civilization.
