Kayaking in Ha'apai

Even if you're not coming out on the boat with us or you want a little break from your hammock on the beach, there are lots of things to keep you entertained.

For prices, please refer to the "Rates" page.



Explore Lifuka and Foa Islands on your own terms and visit historical sites like the Port au Prince Memorial and the Olovehi Tombs or some of the more remote snorkeling spots.



All around the island there are nice reefs that you can explore right off the beach. Ask us for directions, we'll be happy to help.



The close proximity of the many small islands in the Northern Ha’apai group and short paddling distances present an ideal opportunity for exploration by kayak. We have different types of kayaks available.


Necky "Kyook" sea kayak (1 person)
This kayak is perfect for the intermediate paddler and very stable, quick and responsive. It features a rudder, hatches, bulkheads and a 136kg weight capacity, which allow plenty of room for camping gear. Some kayaking experience is preferable with this boat.


Necky "Manitou II" sea kayak (1 or 2 persons)
This kayak is suitable for beginner paddlers, singles and couples alike and can handle up to Class III whitewater. It features an extra thick hull, inflatable spray skirts, a self-bailing drain valve, a rudder and rear and bow stowage space for camping supplies for several days. Two molded skegs allow the boat to track smoothly and minimise paddling effort loss allowing you to go faster and further with less energy.



There are some pretty good spots for kite surfing around this area. However, in the absence of a shop or school, you need to bring your own equipment.
