Adding to the varieties of activities for visitors to mainland Tongatapu is the newly established Water sports Charters, ‘Charlies Charters’.  Charlie’s Charters caters for the needs of those that are eager to a great experience exploring the islands of Tongatapu.

Charlie’s Charters offers varieties of adventures from site seeing, island hopping, snorkeling, spear fishing, bottom sea fishing to game fishing.

Owned and skippered by former All Blacks, Mr. Charlie Riechelmann, who was born and raised in these seas, there is no one more qualified to take you out and have a great time!. Mr. Riechelmann said, “I will provide a personal service which no doubt, you will enjoy!”
Director of Tourism, Sakopo Lolohea said, “We are pleased with this as it will certainly add value to the varieties of activities for the visitors to choose from while in Tongatapu”.  

In past years, there were very limited activities for visitors to choose from in Tongatapu.  Now it offers a lot more from special guided cultural tours, kayaking, whale watching, diving, sailing and surfing which is great.
