Your sailing trip

Yacht Cruises: Fiji and Tonga

Join the Infinity Expedition and sail from Tonga to Fiji in the Trade Winds, get to know the people, islands, and reefs during the journey.

We depart from Neiafu Harbor in Tonga’s northern Vava’u island group. Before setting sail for the offshore part of the voyage, we will stop at a magical sea cave in which one seems to feel and hear “Neptune’s breath.” This cave can be explored both by scuba or just by free diving. Soon after we will be out in the ocean and hoping for steady trade winds from behind and a comfortable yet exciting journey.

 

Tonga has a lot to offer. This is some of what you can look forward to upon arrival:

Scuba, free dive, snorkel, or spearfish in the turquoise waters and beautiful reefs.
Tonga’s marine wildlife is well known for its rich diversity. You have a good chance to see dolphins, humpback whales, rays, and turtles, just to name a few. Enjoy the scenic harbor of Port Refuge, Vava’u. The port is a deep cut waterway, remnant of an ancient volcano crater now open to the ocean.


The nice little town of Neiafu is nestled in the side of the green mountains with lovely restaurants and handicraft stores. We expect our passage to Fiji to be a pleasant 4 days and nights sail. We’ll pass an area west of Tonga that is volcanically very active, and there is at least one island that appears and then disappears again from time to time. With luck, we’ll get a glimpse! The first islands of Fiji we’ll pass are part of the still very traditional Lau group. When we visit remote Fijian islands we have to meet with the chief and do a Sevu Sevu local welcome ceremony, and guests are usually welcome to participate.

 

Fiji is very diverse in its cultural experience. The islanders love to sit around the big kava bowl late into the night so if your pace is relaxed, those long gatherings can be very enjoyable and are often filled with stories and laughter. Traditional Fijian food consists of all kinds of dishes like fresh fish, vegetables and more with fresh coconut cream wrapped in banana leaves and slow-cooked on hot rocks. Half of Fiji’s population originates from India so they also make an important part of the vibrant society and bring their own cultural heritage.

 

Some reefs of Fiji have spectacular drop off dives, where we’ve sighted whales and dolphins many times. Eventually, Vanua Levu will show on the horizon, a mountainous island covered in jungle. Our official arrival port is in Savusavu Bay among the pearl farms. You can buy pearls and enjoy a hike or two in the stunning rainforest.

To see a colorful mix of unique, diverse cultures and beautiful nature, sail with us from Tonga to Fiji.

 

You could spend a year on the islands and still wouldn’t have seen everything. To make the most of what Samoa and Tonga have to offer, we recommend giving yourself plenty of extra time outside of the voyage or combine Infinity trips 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.

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

Ole Mueller, Germany 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.”
