Full description
Your island adventure begins with pickup from your hotel or cruise ship and heads towards a stunning blue lagoon. Upon arrival, be amazed by the stunningly clear waters and the jaw-dropping beauty of this untouched island paradise. Next, experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim up close with sea turtles, and snorkel along one of the prettiest white sand beaches the island has to offer. From your expert guide, learn about how the hatchlings of Vanuatu's two main turtle species are collected from the wild and nurtured until they are released into the sea. For an extra cost, you can also swim with sharks and giant turtles in their rock enclosure for an incredibly special experience. After your swim, enjoy a very generous BBQ lunch serving up tender and juicy Vanuatu steaks, locally caught fish, chicken, sausages, salad, rice, and chips. Once you’re all full up from lunch, head to the Rarru Cascades where breathtaking views and an imposing waterfall await you. Afterwards, spend some free time to exploring on your own or head off for some duty-free shopping. At the end of the tour, enjoy drop-off back to your pickup destination or if you prefer, the wharf market.

The tour itself was great the turtles amazing experience the only thing was I tried telling them my partner wasn’t able to fly he was stopped at the airport and they wouldn’t give me a refund for his tour so they took $130 to help themselves and would t allow me to transfer to a different one of their tours so I wasn’t impressed with their customer service.

This was such a wonderful day. We started at the blue lagoon - utterly breathtaking! Then we went to have a BBQ lunch (yum) and swim with the turtles. This part was incredible. We then went to the cascades while it lightly rained, and this was so refreshing. I could swim there all day. An unforgettable day out!

It was a great tour - wonderful to drive around the countryside in an air conditioned vehicle. Nicole, our guide was lovely. The 3 sites were fine. The lush scenery a pleasure to experience . My main misgiving was that this tour was on a cruise day so all the sites were very crowded. With thanks for a great day
