SOUTH SEA VAGABOND is now based in the wonderful republic of Vanuatu!

In July 2012 we sailed South Sea Vagabond north to the tropical paradise of Vanuatu.

We are now fully licensed and available for cruising charters throughout the 83 islands of this amazing nation, voted the Happiest Place on the Planet. Experiences range from the cafes and nightclubs of Vila to the most primitive and remote villages imaginable.

Surfing, Kitesurfing, Diving, Fishing and just soaking up the diverse cultures are all on the menu.

Active volcanoes, land diving, and ‘kastom’ dancing are among the experiences offered.

We are available for daysails out of Villa, and longer charters to the outer islands, ranging from 3 to 7 days and with up to 10 guests.

Please contact us for more details and dates available.

We are fully licensed, registered and have all the permits to conduct a charter business here. With 83 different tropical islands beckoning to be explored, how could we resist ?

anchorage for the night.
