As we booked this activity in advance, we had to change the dates a few times however Russell Abe was very accommodating. He replied promptly and there were absolutely no hiccups.

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

I went out with Thomas and kayaked around the long way around a small island in the harbour as it was just us and a beautiful day for it. I really enjoyed chatting with Thomas and learning more about the Ni Vanuatu people and their customs. The kayak itself was great, nice and stable and the location amazing and I... More

I did the full day Havannah Harbour kayak tour.

Hi Marjorie, thank you for your informative review - just a quick correction though - for your readers - the Island where the sand bank that joins the mainland was at Moso Island - not Tanna (Tanna is the most southern Island in the Vanuatu group and is 45minutes by plane...I just don't want people to think they can kayak...

Did the Harbour Tour and was met by Kim off the cruise ship and off to the kayaks and to meet our guide Thomas. Fantastic time in the "better" kayaks, snorkeling, exploring and lunch. Also went to the school they support as we had bought some "stuff" for the kids. Really worth while as we wanted to "give back" and... More

I've worked in tourism for many years, and have never come across such a committed and personal approach to customer service - this is how a tour should be run, personal approach, friendly, educational, safe and caring. The owner Kim was great and so many little value added things we didn't experience, and the guide Thomas, was a true professional.... More
