Eco Tours in Vava’u Island Group, Tonga   


Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Kahlil Gibran

Outriggers in Paradise is new to Vava'u. We started operating our outrigger canoe tours in 2007, which means we're still very fresh and our people are keen to show off this beautiful part of the world to new and returning visitors alike. There's always something different to see.

We're two Aussies who decided to leave the rat race behind and do what most people dream of doing - live on a tropical island where there is no such thing as freezing winters, and traffic jams are a distant memory.

Bruce Haig of Outriggers in Tonga, Vava'u, Kingdom of Tonga

My name is Bruce Haig and I'm an avid canoe and Dragon Boat paddler. I tore myself away from coaching the Brisbane Manly Dragon Boat Club to move to Vava'u with my wife, Julianne. I love all aspects of this exciting sport, whether it's a leisurely paddle going with the ocean current or putting some extra effort in to maintain my fitness. It was an easy decision for us to offer outrigger canoe tours to show beautiful Vava'u off to the world.

Julianne Bell of Outriggers in Tonga, Vava'u, Kingdom of Tonga

My name is Julianne and I'm a "sea junkie". It's been my lifelong dream to live in the South Pacific. I sometimes think I'm half fish and am happiest in the water but when I have to live on dry land I'm responsible for making sure our guests know all about Outriggers in Paradise and enjoy their experience in this amazing part of the world we call home.

Outriggers Tongan guide Louie

Our guides are fully trained in guiding our tours, helping our guests and, when necessary, applying emergency first aid. They are steeped in local knowledge and pretty good cooks too! Your Outriggers in Paradise Guide will answer all your questions, and if he doesn't know the answer he will find out (or just make it up!).

We're all firmly committed to sustainable tourism. Our ethos is to make sure our activities have only a beneficial impact on the environment, culture and lives of the people of Tonga.
