With 176 islands scattered across over 700,000 square kilometres of Pacific Ocean blue, Tonga’s protected coral reefs and atolls, safe anchorages and reliable marine breezes, are one of the planet’s finest locations for sailing. And with a maritime heritage stretching back to the ocean-spanning double-hulled kalia canoes of the Kingdom’s ancient mariners, this is a land that truly understands the simple and unadorned appeal of harnessing ocean breezes for adventure and exploration. The Tongan sailing experience is not only deserted coves and sleepy, uninhabited atolls. Neifau Harbour on Vava’u is one of the Pacific’s key sailing hubs, an essential and social destination for an increasing number of Pacific marine adventurers on extended sailing sojourns through the far flung nooks and crannies of the planet’s biggest ocean. Friday afternoon yacht races around Neifau’s Port of Refuge are a South Pacific institution. Crack open a cold Ikale beer at the Port of Refuge Yacht Club and watch sailors from the United States to New Zealand vie for bragging rights. While these marine nomads take advantage of Tonga’s professional yacht providores to replenish for more weeks at sea, novice and casual sailors can also experience the best of the Kingdom’s April to October sailing season. A crewed vessel or a self-charter is the ultimate mobile accommodation, able to travel to the optimal island locations for lazy day tropical sojourns of fishing, sea kayaking, surfing, snorkelling and diving. Day trips combining whale watching and sailing are also on offer from the sleepy northern Ha’apai island group.
