Your sailing trip

Tonga Sailing Tour

With three weeks in the kingdom of Tonga, we will have all the time in the world to lose ourselves between the reefs, beaches, and starlit nights.

The scenic harbor of Port Refuge in the island group of Vava’u will be the start to our sail through the myriad of Tonga’s 170 islands. At the beginning of the journey we’ll get to know one another and plan the details with everyone’s personal preference in mind.

 

The sailing will consist of mostly easy day sails and a few laid-back overnighters mostly through pleasant sheltered waters. There are thousands of places to anchor, may that be in the middle of the blue behind a gorgeous reef, or right next to a sandy cay with a few coconut palms all to ourselves, or in a bay at the foot of a lush green island.

We will visit villages to meet the people of Tonga. They love to sing and socialise and customarily do so gathered around the kava bowl. Tonga offers phenomenal diving, snorkeling, and surfing to explore with a multitude of marine wildlife to see, including humpback whales, dolphins, and vibrant coral reefs with all its colorful fish.

Weather dependent, we’ll have a chance to sail past the active volcanic region of the Ring of Fire to witness a newborn island. While you won’t want to coddle this dangerous baby (imagine snuggling a dragon’s lair–NOT recommended) you will definitely want to see this before the ocean wears it away!!

 

You could spend a year on the islands and still wouldn’t have seen everything. To make the most of what Tonga has to offer, we recommend giving yourself plenty of extra time outside of the voyage or add days with Infinity for a longer stay. We will have a wonderful journey filled with a wealth of unforgettable experiences, but we will NOT have enough time to do everything suggested above! If your heart is set on some specific activity, be sure to tell us about it so we can do our best to create the opportunity.

 

The detailed day-to-day itinerary will largely depend on the weather. We are free to go with the flow.

Infinity

Infinity is a fully-equipped 36 meter sailing expedition vessel on an ongoing voyage since 2003

Infinity is a fully-equipped 36 meter sailing expedition vessel on an ongoing voyage since 2003. She has traveled to over 2 dozen countries in both the North and South Pacific and in Southeast Asia and she has sailed amongst icebergs, penguins, and orcas in the Ross Sea, Antarctica, and Patagonia. She is crewed by a multicultural team with a contagiously positive vibe together with Captain Clemens Oestreich, who has skippered vessels for over 100,000 miles during the last 20 years, while raising his 5 children at sea. Infinity is built to be a world-traveling base for adventure and environmental work, forming a beautiful home with unique history and personality. The living quarters are designed with comfortable guest cabins and large communal spaces including an airy saloon, cinema, and extensive deck space. To date, over 200 crew members from all around the world have been part of many extraordinary adventures. They dove with wales and sharks, participated in environmental outreach and even battled deep-sea oil drilling companies. Infinity is open to guests for the first time this year.

Travel organizer tips

How is Infinity Expedition different?
•You are free to create your own extraordinary adventure with Infinity as your base. We support you actively along the way, providing a safe and comfortable home and delicious meals daily.
•This is a community-oriented vessel and home to family. Children are always a part of the fun!
•A wealth of activities are available at no extra cost. Sail and seamanship training, yoga, most shore excursions, beach clean-ups, capoeira, and cooking classes are all part of the journey.
•The multicultural team aboard will involve guest crew with the whole experience of sailing and living at sea. You will be invited and encouraged to snoop around the engine room, explore the deck, raise the sails, and steer the ship. With inclusive service, you are free to immerse into the experience, yet participate at your own pace.
•Important to Infinity is sustainable travel and reduced impact on the planet. The earth is not loot to be plundered but a treasure to be protected so that it can be enjoyed, loved, and cherished by generations to come. The aim is to create a new model of communal living that is not only self-sustaining but actively makes a positive contribution to our planet.
•Massive amounts of rubbish wash up on the shores of the remote islands of the Pacific. On Infinity, crew regularly roll up their sleeves and take away as much trash as can be delivered to appropriate recycling facilities. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
• Crew come together from all over the world to participate in this vibrant community out of love for what they do. Everyone works hard for almost free so you can have an incredible experience at the lowest cost anywhere (please reflect your appreciation with a tip!). To Infinity, these jobs are not jobs and these journeys are not trips: it’s a lifestyle.

Travelers reviews

2014-08-01

“This boat is an adventure by itself! I sailed on this boat for 8 months, from the Philippines to New Zealand. You are on one of the most fun boats out there on the Pacific Ocean. Amazing people, great sailing and delicious meals (they have a pizza oven) I learned so much on Infinity: diving, trimming sails, navigation etc. If you are willing to learn, the captain Clemens is a pool of knowledge.”
