A moderate level of physical fitness and a sense of adventure are important. The guides endeavour to balance the group by pairing slower paddlers with stronger, more experienced paddlers. However, the slower paddlers always dictate the pace.
Base camps offer the luxury of paddling empty kayaks or a lay day for exploring and relaxing. Paddling into a trade wind of 13-18 knots requires extra effort and can make the distance we travel feel longer. Those who engage in regular exercise such as walking, cycling or swimming tend to derive more enjoyment from their adventure. Physical conditioning exercises and camping experience are recommended.
Exclusive family trips are our specialty. Vava'u, with its sheltered waterways and favourable climate, is the ideal place for young people to develop their paddling skills.
