Kim organised a fantastic day out in Port Vila for our family in December 2014. Kim is very efficient and replied promptly to all my emails and questions. We were guided by Bernard and Thomas on the kayaks around Iririki Island Resort to Snorkeller's Cove. Bernard and Thomas always made sure to point out to us the best spots for... More

This was the first time Kim, Russell & Thomas plus their dog Kujo had done a cruise pick up from Champagne Bay on Santo and we were not disappointed! We drove around to Lonnoc Beach and launched the kayaks from there with Thomas. Thomas was an excellent guide and made sure we were safe in the choppy waters. We went... More

We booked online prior to our cruise on the Rhapsody of the Seas and so meeting Kim at the port was easy. We then joined our guide, Bernard, to kayak to Iririki Island, which is an island in the port area. The snorkeling was very good and Bernard attracted a large school of small colourful fish with some bread which... More

I did the full day Havannah Harbour kayaking tour with my new mate Bernard. I couldn't have asked for a better person to go kayaking with - he was approachable, informative, funny and showed me places that I never would have found myself if I went down the unguided kayak hire path. Havannah Harbour is beautiful and so much quieter... More
