Vava'u Sailing Map and Anchorages

Vava'u, Kingdom of Tonga, has over 40 unspoiled anchorages and harbours to explore. Easy sailing in deep protected waters makes Vava'u an ideal location for a sailing charter. The Kingdom of Tonga is a South Pacific Island paradise that has kept its traditional charm. Discover the real Polynesia, while sailing among the islands of the last unspolied paradise.

Melinda Sea Adventures offers sailing charters on your choice of 3 sailboats:

Jocara, 52 ft cutter for skippered, catered charters

Comfortably Numb, 30 ft sloop, for bareboat or skippered charter

Damn, 26 ft Folkboat, for bareboat charter

Each square on the Vava'u map represents one nautical mile. Navigation is mostly by line of sight. There is a daily weather forecast on VHF 26 on the cruiser's information net at 8:30AM.
