Cruising Resources

Come look at our extensive library of Vanuatu resources and discuss with us the best possible trip for your guests. We have information regarding Vanuatu’s culture, diving, history, places of interest, anchorages and weather. We spent a week at the National Archives in Washington, DC and have gathered copious amounts of information pertaining to Vanuatu (New Hebrides) during WWII, including photographs and charts. We are here to assist you in every way possible.
