Overview
More
Kayak and snorkel the beautiful warm waters of Vanuatu, guided by local Mele Village ladies. As you kayak over to a small sand island you can learn about the history of Port Vila, the incredible wildlife and what life in paradise is like. Once arrived on the island you can snorkel the surrounds finding vibrant coral, tropical fish and if your lucky you could spot a dolphin or turtle. Kayak back to the mainland and enjoy fresh local fruits and try coconuts direct from the tree.

A very easy Kayak, paddled through villages and under mangroves. It was a 4 hour paddle although not strenuous it was just that bit too long . If you want a slow easy activity this is for you. Pascal was very helpful and informative
