    Pele Island
    Stop: 8 hours - Admission included
    This is a whole day tour beginning at 8.30am. This tour will give you the opportunity to visit one of our most beautiful islands, the renowned Pele Island which won the Best Tour Award in 2005 and one of our tours submitted for Entry in the 2015 -16 Tourism Awards which Evergreen won as best soft & recreational tour. This is a chance to learn about the historical and local life of the island people along with their way of daily living. At the pick up point, you are greeted by our friendly tour guide with Evergreen chilled water and a brief introduction to the tour. The drive to the northern part of the island takes about twenty minutes to almost half an hour. At Emua Wharf, you are escorted to your dinghy which is our latest addition along with life jackets and flares for safety requirements. The boat trip to the island takes about ten minutes on fine weather. At the island you are welcomed by swaying palms, white sandy beach and crystal clear, turquoise waters and serenity sounds of local string band in the background and the biggest smiles you’ll ever see. Upon stepping ashore, the tour guide gives a brief on your schedule for the day and available facilities on the island. Once you are settled on the beach side and have found your relaxing spot, it's time to do some snorkelling at a beautiful reef site located hundred meters offshore. The area from this village on Pele Island to Nguna Island (next door) has officially been a Marine Protected Area since year 2003. Fishing is prohibited in these areas therefore marine life is abundant. Onshore, a sumptuous barbecue lunch awaits you, prepared by our very own local chef Wawa (Uncle) George. Cold drinks are provided and Tusker beer also available at cash bar. After siesta you are guided to the nearby village. Pele Island people are born of the sea. In this immense aquatic environment we not only make a living from its abundant waters but also consider its shoreline our marine playground. We are pleased to share its unique pleasures with you. The turquoise beauty of our lagoons beckon you to snorkel virtually anywhere inside the reef on the island. A prolific abundance of tropical marine life, colorful fish and interesting corals can be viewed. See how the island people live and learn about their relaxed lifestyle. You will also have a chance to visit the local primary school and be entertained by their cheerful singing. Here, you can hand out your stationery goods to the children should you wish to. School facilities are very basic and paper and pencils are sometimes very scarce. After the village visit, you can head back to the beach. Take a snorkel, or a swim at your own leisure or go for a paddle on our kayaks. Relax and enjoy the afternoon lazing on the beach. Afternoon tea of warm beverages and biscuits are then served before it's time to say goodbye to the people and the island. The villagers and children would stand by the shoreline and bide the day guests’ farewell with their warm and friendly smiles as another day ends for some in paradise. The day should finish at around 5.30 pm. A portion of this tour is contributed to the village. Precedents are donated to the development of the village. A tank has been donated by Evergreen to the village for the supply of clean drinking water.

Best snorkeling off Pele Island
Jan. 2020 • Solo
I booked a couple of day trips and airport transfers on Efate with Evergreen and I have to say what an outstanding service! Pick ups on time and friendly tour guide and driver.
The day trip to Pele islands was the highlight. The drive takes you through villages while the guide comments on the day to day life there and tells us about the organisation of life in the villages. Then a short boat ride takes you to Pele. And that’s where the magic happens. The snorkeling off Pele was stunning. Sea life and corals are the most colourful and untouched. The afternoon is made of swimming, barbecue lunch and tea time and more snorkeling. A great day out of town.
I also booked the half day to Mele Cascades Waterfall and the falls are just gorgeous, turquoise water and tropical forest.
I definitely recommend Evergreen for your activities in Vanuatu.

Pele Island Visit
Jan. 2020 • Family
Great day out with the family. The weather was not a good one but that didn't deter us from having a good time. Our guides Alex and John did their best to ensure we had a great experience. The return boat rides to the island were choppy but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. We were brought 300m off the beach to snorkel and despite the rain, the view underneath the waters was just spectacular. We had lunch & tea, all well prepared. The short walk in the rain through the village was good too. Unfortunately we didn't get to interact much with the locals due to the rain. We would have stayed longer if not for the rain. Overall, it was a great experience and this trip is worth a shot!

Perfect way to spend a day
Aug. 2019 • Couples
Had such a wonderful day on Pele Island! Our tour guide Maurice was brilliant and had such great local knowledge to help make the day that much more special. The reefs were stunning and being able to have an insight into how they live there and to be able to bring some things to share with the kids was truly fantastic. Highly recommended for anyone travelling to Efaté.

Dreamy blue water, white sand, colourful tropical fish and a lovely island village
Jun. 2019
The Pele island snorkeling day tour was almost like a little holiday from your holiday. Although it is around an 8 hour tour, it is a very laid back, at your own time kind of tour. Pele island itself is gorgeous, the reef was beautiful and John, our tour guide was a pleasure! And a great photographer!!!

Fabulous day out
Our trip to Pele Island and snorkeling was a brilliant relaxing day. The snorkeling was amazing. I've never seen so many beautiful fish, I even got to feed some. Lunch was simple but delicious. Our guides were fun and friendly, showing us around one of their villages.

Book before you go, it will be cheaper!

A good day
We enjoyed the day doing this tour. The travel was a little long as we seemed to have the slowest driver in Vanuatu. The boat trip was cool. The snorkeling was fabulous, literally thousands of fish all around us at the reef they took us to. I have been on the Great Barrier Reef multiple times and never did it come even remotely close to this. Lunch was about what you’d expect. All in all it was an enjoyable day and we would do it again. Hopefully the driver would’ve found second gear by then haha
