Escape the winter to Tonga and ‘cruise in company’ in August 2011.

Swim with the whales in warm tropical waters. From $2,595.00 per person.

Including:
• ten days on board a luxury catamaran
• overnight hotel on arrival in Nuku A’lofa
• transfers
domestic and international airfares (ex Sydney).

To find out more about this offer call Mariner Boating Holidays on (02) 9966 1244 or Toll Free 1300 131 724 (outside Sydney Metro).

This destination has become one of our most popular 'laid back' destinations. The balmy atmosphere, clear, warm protected water, traditional life style of the local people, friendly welcome and genuine smiles of greeting all add up to making this a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Yachties have sailed in here and never left. Not difficult to understand why!

The easy pace of life in this South Pacific billabong will be your holiday tonic during a cruise that will add just a little racing to ten days of island style feasting, snorkelling, diving, fishing, sea kayaking and lazing around on pure white sand beaches….
Heaven!

The 60 islands of the Vava’u group create the perfect setting for a yacht rally. Air temperatures will be about 26°C, the water temperature about the same and the warm South-Easterly trade wind will generally be 10 – 15 knots across the flat water of these 220 square miles of sailing nirvana. The humidity will be low at this time of the year and the barrier reef along the Eastern edge of the archipelago will break the Pacific Ocean swells.
