Cruising in Vanuatu
The islands of Vanuatu offer some of the most beautiful and unique
sights in the world. One of the best ways to appreciate the unique natural beauty of the 83 islands that make up
Vanuatu is to take a cruise among the islands.
Many of the islands that are part of Vanuatu are relatively
inaccessible by other means. Taking a cruise provides you with the opportunity to experience some of the outlying
communities, most of which are quite strong in terms of cultural traditions and practices.
When cruising out to some of the outlying islands, it is important to
understand that your experience will be somewhat different from the main islands. While you will typically find a
number of custom performances on the larger islands, when you visit some of the smaller outlying islands, you will
be treated to the opportunity to experience true authentic cultural activities and ceremonies.
Vanuatu Sailing and Cruise
There are many different Vanuatu sailing and cruise options that will
allow you to custom design your excursion, depending on the amount of time you have available for cruising as well
as your interests. You can choose from half-day as well as full day and even multi-day trips that feature
such activities as swimming, sightseeing, picnicking,
snorkeling, cave exploration and much more. There are even cruise options that will provide you with the
opportunity to go parasailing.
Along with Vanuatu cruises that will take you out to the outlying
islands, there are also many cruises that are specifically designed for divers. These diving cruises are great for
advanced divers who want to take advantage of the opportunity to dive many of the interesting sights that are
located off the coast of the islands. There are typically a number of different dive vessels that will depart not
far from town, taking visitors out to a number of the different dive sites that are situated nearby. Many of the
cruises specialize in both morning and afternoon dives, providing you with ample opportunity to spend as much time
as you like cruising and diving as well as sightseeing on land.
Of course, if it is romance you are interested in, there are plenty
of private yachts which can be chartered for romantic sunset dinner cruises. These romantic cruises will provide
you with a wonderful opportunity to see more of the local islands, sample some of the tasty local cuisine and enjoy
a romantic evening for just the two of you.
