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.

Laumanu Sport Fishing

We specialise in GT Fishing - physically challenging either land or boat based - your call! Lupo is a Boston Whaler, Montauk 17, which is excellent for 2 anglers, one forward and one aft. It is powered by a 2009 Yamaha 60 HP 4-stroke for quiet cruising the reef edges.

We practice 100% catch and release for Giant Trevally.

We have 2 options. Bring your own gear, or use ours.

You will need to bring your own equipment for these fish as I would not be able to maintain a large enough stock of lures or poles to keep up with these fish. They are hard on the equipment!

Warning: This kind of fishing can be physically challenging, not to mention as just getting to some of the land based remote locations. Please be sure to ask all possible questions before booking GT fishing trips, especially land based ones.

Boat Charters
Full Day starting at $800 TOP Max 3 Anglers
Half Day starting at $500 TOP
Land Based available on request.
