Fiji

Fiji is an island nation comprised of 322 islands spread over 230,000 square kilometers. The Yasawa group is a chain of 16 islands located north-west of Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu. We spend our time in the Yasawas kayaking between islands, camping on isolated beaches, snorkelling the coral reefs and staying in small native villages getting to know the friendly locals. Southern Sea Ventures started paddling trips in the Yasawa Islands 25 years ago and they still remain one of our favourite destinations.

Melanesia—NEW!

The islands of Melanesia reach from Papua New Guinea in the west to Fiji in the east. Culturally and geographically distinctive with 1300 languages, exotic birdlife and pristine coral reefs, the opportunities for remote sea kayaking are unparalleled. Working with Heritage Expeditions aboard Spirit of Enderby we discover the hidden gems on two different voyages, first exploring eastern Papua New Guinea and the Solomons and then continuing southeasterly on the second, cruising through the outer most islands of the Solomons and Vanuatu.

Tonga

On our Tonga sea kayak expeditions we strive for a healthy balance between relaxation and adventure. We generally paddle in the mornings, leaving the afternoons free for snorkeling amidst colourful coral or inside legendary marine caves, exploring lush tropical bush and observing the traditional village lifestyle. We spend our evenings on deserted beaches beneath waving palms and the Southern Cross, bathed by warm South Pacific breezes.

Australia

Hinchinbrook Island, Goold Island and the Family Islands are continental islands located off the tropical coast between Ingham and Tully in North Queensland. With granite peaks rising 1142 metres directly out of the sea, Hinchinbrook Island is a magnificent backdrop for sea kayaking. Waterfalls, tropical rainforests, precipitous headlands, coral reefs and secluded beaches are among the island’s treasures.

Indonesia—NEW!

New Guinea is divided into two halves, Papua New Guinea in the east and West Papua, a region of Indonesia in the west. It’s on the north-west tip of West Papua that the approximately 1500 islands that make up Raja Ampat are situated. The area is untouched and unknown, abounding in pristine tropical beaches, sapphire seas, exotic bird life and one of the world’s most spectacular marine habitats. Using a traditional sailing vessel as our floating home base, we’ll explore the islands by kayak, visiting areas, quite possibly, where no others have paddled before.
