Self guided Kayaking or SUP board Tour

Paddle yourself around Port Vila Harbour. Choose from 3 self-guided routes or make up your own. All our kayaks are stable ocean kayaks and you have the option of single kayak, double kayaks or stand up paddleboards.

Kayaking Tours

The self guided kayaking tour takes you on different routes around the harbour and you will be given a waterproof map with points of interest. You get quite a different perspective of Port Vila from the water different to when you walk through town in dry land! Take a trip along the seafront and have a look at the million dollar properties and yachts moored in the harbour. Paddle around Iririki Island and look out for the coral bommies and tropical fish in the shallows behind the island. Paddle out to the Cruise ship terminal and you will really get a sense of how big the ships are. Port Vila has many sea-side restaurants and bars with fabulous views over the water – see what they look like from the other side. The choice is yours.
