A charter of any length with Adventures In Paradise Yacht Charters
offers you exhilarating sailing, fantastic snorkelling in remote
locations, time spent on lush tropical islands, and the chance to
catch that fish of a lifetime.
The further you travel away from the main provincial town of Kavieng,
the more you can experience the intrigue of traditional village
life, left virtually unchanged for hundreds of years. There are
so few places left in the world where you can still experience authentic
culture and genuine happiness. Many of the children here have not
travelled beyond the islands close by, and are so honestly happy
and friendly, unspoilt by Playstations and televisions.
The communities grow their own fruit and vegetables, and fish for
their dinner. Their houses are built using traditional materials
and their transport is by way of dugout canoes. They have an amazing
sense of spirit, and they care for one another like one big family.
They welcome visitors with open arms, as it is not something that
Being the only yacht charter operation visiting the area on a regular
basis, the people that we visit are our friends and are only too
happy and proud to show you around their little piece of paradise.
Take a peak under the water, and be amazed by the sheer number
of fish and colour of the coral. The reefs around Kavieng offer
some of the most diverse diving on earth, however you dont
need to have your dive ticket to be able to experience it here.
Every island has fringing reefs offering the chance to snorkel
at a different location everyday, right off the yacht.
Shallow wrecks from World War II around the Three Island Harbour
area allow snorkellers the opportunity to experience a look at history
normally restricted to divers. The water is clean and warm, visibility
is excellent and the tropical fish are very, very friendly.
Masks and Snorkels are available free for use whilst on charter.
The rivers of Lavongai (New Hanover) are awesome to take a trip
in the dinghy, with overhanging trees and picturesque villages.
See sago being prepared, climb a Buai (betel nut) palm and have
a chew with the locals, or head up at night time with a full moon
and keep your eyes peeled for puk puks (crocodiles) even
though weve never actually seen one yet.
The islands abound in fish species just waiting for you to catch
them. We trawl from the stern whilst sailing, and mainly catch pelagic
(surface dwelling) species such as Mackerel, Tuna and Giant Trevally.
There are many reefs which we sail over at around 5-10 metres deep,
where we also catch a huge variety of reef fish
