Accommodation: Tongan Beach Resort, 'Utungake Island.

Upon arrival at Lupepau'u Airport in Vava'u you will be transferred to your resort accommodation. Today is an opportunity to acclimatize and, for those travellers arriving from far-away places, to recover from jet lag. Relax on the beach and snorkel in the warm water just a few steps from your private fale. A 45-minute orientation talk at 4:00 p.m. is followed by a welcome dinner on the beach at sunset overlooking the picturesque Port of Refuge.

Day 2: Kayaking

Meals: B, L, D.

Accommodation: Treasure Island Eco-Resort, Eueiki Island

Paddling Time: 2-3 hours.

At 8:45 a.m. you transfer by taxi to The Adventure Centre in Toula Village, 2.5 km southeast of Neiafu for a safety briefing before departing for the first day of kayaking. Skirting rocky shorelines and coral reefs, the group paddles eastward stopping along the way for a picnic lunch on a sandy beach and snorkelling. Our destination and base for the next 3 days is Treasure Island Eco-Resort, a luxury eco-resort situated on the sandy shores of private Eueiki Island. Dinner is at the resort's beachfront restaurant.

Day 3: Snorkelling / Sightseeing

Meals: B, L, D.

Accommodation: Treasure Island Eco-Resort, Eueiki Island

Excursion Time: 3-4 hours

Hop aboard Treasure Islands's private vessel for a half-day sightseeing boat tour of the scenic Vava'u Islands and snorkelling at Mark's favourite spots. Between July and October you might be fortunate enough to see the humpback whales, which migrate from Antarctica annually to breed, give birth and nurse their newborn calves in Tonga's sheltered warm waters. Today's excursion includes opportunities to go ashore and explore one or more of the many outer islands. Arrive back at the resort in time for a nap, shower and cocktails at the beach bar.

Day 4: Lay Day

Meals: B, L, D.

Accommodation: Treasure Island Eco-Resort, Eueiki Island

Today, Sunday, is by Tongan law a day of rest and worship. Those who choose to attend a church service at neighbouring Taunga village will be impressed by the splendour of the Tongan's formal attire and harmonised singing.

However, resort guests may swim, snorkel, kayak and paddle board in the vicinity of Treasure Island.

Our journey ends back in the Port of Refuge, reputedly the most protected and beautiful harbour in the Pacific. Observe coastal village life and waving children from your kayak.

Arriving back at base, The Adventure Centre, you transfer to your resort for a shower and farewell dinner.
