Either includes a 3 course lunch, snorkel equipment and the chance to explore the outer islands and sea life abounding in this area of the South Pacific. Special group rates are available as well as discounts for children under 12.

“Magnificent views; very well organised trip.”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

The sites we visited were very interesting and varied: open caves, underwater cave and coral gardens. Diving in the caves was awesome and the coral gardens were magnificent. We also enjoyed a very good lunch on a small, picturesque beach. Thank you, Don & Laurie for a very enjoyable and well organized trip.

I know I am really slow to say thank you for taking the time to write a review but it really makes a difference on our business booking and it is really appreciated.
I hope you make it back to Vavau in the future and please look us up and I am sure we can work out a discount for a second trip. always appreciated and what a great way to spend a day and thats my take on it.

“Awesome Experince”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Had one of the best snorkeling experiences I have had since arriving in Vava'u. Capitan Don not only made the experience a leisurely adventure he is very knowledgeable about the areas we snorkeled and the local history and legends of the islands. We snorkeled 5 different areas and each one was unique and amazing in it's own way. Lunch was spent a beautiful sandy beach, no rush, no worries. Would recommend an outing with Don and Laurie as a Must Do to anyone visiting or living in Vava'u.

Loved It

“One of the most amazing experiences of my entire life!”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

The entire trip, from beginning to end, was a truly incredible experience. Don's relaxed and welcoming presence made for an enjoyable day out on the water. The trip was very informative and gave us a great idea about the marine life around the islands as well as general history of Tonga! After a snorkeling at a few stunning spots and exploring a few caves, we were taken to the most beautiful and scenic spot for lunch. Then the day was topped off with even more beautiful snorkeling. WOW! Well worth the money spent, even if you are on a budget and have to scrape together the money to make it possible. Our trip wouldn't have been complete if we didn't decide to go snorkeling with Hakau Adventures!

“Snorkelling in Tonga”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

We had an amazing day with Don, just my husband and I . He paced the day very well for us so we got to see a variety of Tongan underwater life.This was the best coral life we have seen and my husband having been bought up in Fiji was extremely impressed. Don was a consummate host and we loved being left on a deserted beach to enjoy our lunch, have a wee rest before exploring more of the area. We highly recommend his tour, as he was very safety conscious and professional at all times. A very reasonable cost for this experience and well recommended.
