Step back in time. Your search for peace, quietness and tranquility ends here. A different anchorage for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Vava'u is a compact cruising area with over forty islands.

About Yacht Charters in Tonga

The Vava’u islands are the most northern and picturesque of the Tongan group.

Here you'll find remote idyllic islands, beautiful lagoons, colourful reefs and small deserted white sand beaches, often fringed with gently rustling palm trees.

The Luxury Charter Group Team have sailed in Vava'u many times during the past 20-years.

Vava'u’s cruising grounds open from Neiafu harbour to the island-studded waters with more than 50 protected anchorages. Some are small remote islets with day anchorages to explore, & others offer more substantial shelter and have friendly villages where you will be welcomed.

The reef to the east forms a protective backbone, which shelters these magical cruising waters from ocean winds and swells. Sailing conditions are excellent with predictable trade winds.

The water is warm and clear with exceptional underwater visibility. Splendid coral and colourful fish make snorkelling a dream. Scuba lovers can experience reef, cave and wreck diving at a number of exciting dive sites.

Explore at your own pace …. one relaxed day flows into another.

Diving and sport fishing in the Ha'apai islands is superb. Your Captain and crew will show you the best spots where the clarity and the brilliant underwater kaleidoscope are amazing.


The best months for yacht charter in Tonga are between April and September when 15 - 25 knots SE tradewinds predominate. From January to March, is the hot wet season, when rainfall increases, humidity is high and the possibility of cyclones deters us at the Luxury Charter Group from recommending any charters at this time

The average daytime temperature hovers around 25 - 26C between May and September. It rises to 29C October through April. The average sea temperature is 25C.
