An absolute must do when in Luganville. Kim the owner is very friendly and will easily assist with any enquiries via email. Once arriving to pick up our ATV's, Thomas (the instructor) is very helpful. He ensures you are confident in riding the ATV before you are on your way. It is the best way to get around the island,...

We pre-booked this trip on the internet and everything went as planned. We were met at the cruise pier by Kim and Russell and went directly to the kayaking. The trip to the Blue Hole was fantastic and we had lots of time to swim in the clear blue water. We are experienced kayakers and it was fine for us,... More

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your day - yes, unfortunate about the coral, as not too many places in a short enough distance for cruise shippers to see great coral - as we do have some wonderful live coral gardens over here - but for longer trips. It is normal practice to test the... More

We had pre-booked this trip over the Internet prior to our cruise. We always do our research before we buy and were very impressed with all the excellent reviews about Island Time Kayaking. During our communication with Kim and Russell before our cruise, our stop in Luganville was changed to Champagne Bay due to dock works. We were told not... More

We did a kayak tour through Island time kayaking. We kayaked to the Matevulu Bluehole. This was just majestic! However we had a lot of issues before we got to start kayaking. The pickup was meant to be for 8.30am, however we did not leave the port till approximately 10.30 (some of this was due to island politics). Our group... More

Hello Stacey, I am sorry that the problem at the wharf on August 14th caused you inconvenience, but it was out of our control and should no way reflect our being late as we were there on time, (to pick up another group) but were delayed by the uniforms redirecting the traffic and checking business credentials.

Highly recommend Island Time Kayaking (Russel and Kim) - we were booked on the Carnival Spirit and prebooked our tour via the internet before we departed Australia. The day before we were to arrive in Santo we were advised we were no longer visiting the Port. One simple call from the ship Guest Services and it was all fixed. Kim... More

We had an excellent time kayaking through the salt water into the fresh water of the iconic blue hole. This tour took about 3 hours there and back including swimming at the blue whole. The tour guides where very friendly and ammusing when showing us how to swing off the tree into the blue hole. It was a fairly easy... More
