Tonga Yacht Charter

Overview

Back in 1773, Captain James Cook christened Tonga ‘the Friendly Islands’ and nothing has changed about the welcome that modern day visitors can expect – A twenty-course torch-lit Tongan beach feast is only the start of the hospitality!

You can see something different every day on a Tonga sailing holiday, as Tonga is comprised of 171 islands in four distinct groups, the northern-most of which is the Vava’u Archipelago. Sunsail’s yacht charter base at Neiafu in Vava’u is the place from which to begin your Tonga sailing holiday and an exploration of these fifty beautiful islands. 

Swimming here is like swimming in an aquarium – the astonishing variety of marine life makes Tonga one of the world’s finest snorkelling and scuba diving destinations.

Date Restrictions

Due to current regulations, Tonga charters may not start or end on a Sunday. Also, in observance of of King Tupou VI's birthday and the Crown Prince's birthday, the base will be closed on July 4th and 17th. If those dates fall on a Sunday, the holidays will be observed the following Monday. Regrettably, our base will be closed these two days and will not be open as a charter start or end day.

Sailing in Tonga

Tonga yacht charters offer exceptional cruising, exhilarating sailing and spectacular deep water drop offs filled with giant fern forests. The abundance of protected anchorages and the generally short passages between them reminds sailors of the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

Tonga is a year round sailing destination, with annual temperatures ranging between 26 and 37 C (78 – 98 F). Wind speeds range from 8 – 12 knots (8 – 13 Mph) from November to March, and between 13 and 18 knots (14 - 20 Mph) from April to October.

To make sure that you get the most out of your Tonga Yacht Charter, we have equipped all of our yachts with the highest specification kit to help provide comfort, performance and fun onboard; so all that’s left for you to do is relax and enjoy your sailing holiday with family and friends.

Tonga Highlights

Sailors can expect to receive a typically warm Tongant welcome, when they step ashore at any of the laid back beach bars and restaurants in Tonga’s idyllic anchorages. Don't be surprised if on your sailing adventure here you find yourself sailing in the company of humpback whales or white dolphins.
