Active Adventure

Get access to some of the most scenic nature in Polynesia:
Kayak in emerald coloured lagoons, visit uninhabited offshore islands and have picnic on a secluded beach. Watch the sea turtles from your kayak, paddle into pristine mangrove forests, snorkel in warm crystal clear water and explore the marine life of the coral reef. Visit remote traditional villages and meet some of the friendliest people in the world. Enjoy the soft South pacific breeze when staying overnight in a cosy “beach fale”.
Do it safely, on a guided kayak tour with Island Explorer.

Typical Day

A one day tour:
We pick you up at your hotel 08.30 am, drive over to Aleipata (east coast). We’ll give you appropriate instructions in how to paddle the kayak, a safety briefing and a more detailed itinerary. We paddle over the lagoon to Namua island. We have our lunch provided by the beach fale resurt. The island is ideal for swimming and snorkelling. After lunch we may paddle out on open ocean to watch the sea turtles or we paddle to Fanuatapu, another uninhabited offshore island accessible from the lagoon. If there's enough time we'll walk around to the other, more rocky, side of Namua island. This trip offers lots of opportunities for beginners as well as experienced kayakers. If you are experienced we can paddle to Nu'utele island.
Overnight tour:
We drive over to the south coast and launch from a beach at Maninoa village. We paddle westwards aling the south coast and have our picnic lunch on one of the beaches.
