About Us

Kayak Adventure Tours in the South Pacific Since 1991

We offer 9 different multi-day tour packages in the Vava'u and Ha'apai island groups of Tonga for novice to experienced paddlers including camping and resort-based trips. The two island groups differ in many ways. Returning guests say they gain a different tour experience and a deeper appreciation of Tongan culture and tradition. We also offer day trips in Vava'u on demand.

If you've already visited Tonga, consider a 6-day, 8-day or 11-day trip in the tropical Yasawa Islands of Fiji as your kayak destination this time. Though the paddling and snorkelling experiences may be similar to those in Tonga, the Melanesian and Polynesian cultures have unique enchanting differences.

NEW in 2020/21 Bruny Island and Three Capes 4-day kayak tours in Tasmania, Australia where paddlers are mesmerised by towering dolerite cliffs, hidden sea caves, kelf forests, sheltered lagoons and beautiful long sandy beaches.

Journey with us on a South Pacific adventure and spend your evenings on deserted beaches beneath waving palms bathed by warm South Pacific breezes.

Our Staff


Doug and Sharon Spence, Directors

Originally from Vancouver Island, Canada, the travel itch led Sharon and Doug to explore the South Pacific by sea kayak in 1989. Captivated by Tonga's natural beauty and friendly natives, the couple was inspired to establish a sea kayak business in situ. Together with their two Chinese adopted daughters, they spent the southern hemisphere winters in the tropical Kingdom and summers in New Zealand's South Island. They recently returned to their extended family in Victoria, British Columbia.


'Epeli and Valeti Lavaki, Directors

Natives of Vava'u, Tonga, 'Epeli and Valeti have been company shareholders since its inception in 1991.
