Our last dive completed and it was time to move on from Munda. Belinda joined us on a trip to Lola Island for Easter Weekend. We had a relaxing sail through Vona Vona Lagoon. The charts are notoriously inaccurate in this part of the world and we use a program called 'SAS Planet' to navigate … Continue reading Easter Weekend
Munda has a lot to offer: a beautiful, well-protected bay with good holding in sand, a sleepy little town with friendly locals, a small resort with great-value lunchtime meals, a few shops with decent provisioning, a good weekly market offering local produce, ... But the number one attraction is of course scuba diving! There are WW2 wrecks, … Continue reading Magical Munda

We've had some stunning sunsets in Munda over the last few days. Watching the sun go down, sitting at anchor, beer in hand, what a perfect way to finish the day ⚓️⛵️🌅
Last Sunday we decided to head out for a day sail and do some fishing. Marty and Andy, two Australians we met here in Munda, joined us for the day. They definitely brought some luck (or skill?) onboard as we caught a fish as soon as we went through the pass. A beautiful size kingfish. … Continue reading Gone Fishing!

We're in Munda and Belinda, who runs Dive SSI here, is a fantastic dive instructor. She started teaching him a few days ago. If … Continue reading Twelve!

After an overnight stop in Matakuri, we continued south to Tetepare Island together with our buddy boat s/v Perry. Tetepare is the largest uninhabited island in the South Pacific (118 sq km) and has untouched rainforest, gorgeous … Continue reading Tetepare Island
We've been anchored in front of Uepi resort since Monday and it's been wonderful. The resort can't always accommodate yachties but lucky for us it wasn't too busy and we were invited to join the other guests for drinks and dinner one night. Delicious food with local ingredients and homegrown veges. Diving Uepi point was … Continue reading Uepi Island Resort
We spent the weekend anchored in front of Matiu Island, an uninhabited part of Marovo lagoon with pristine turquoise water for the kids to play in and some gorgeous corals for us to snorkel around. It was fun to catch up with our buddy boats Fieldtrip and Perry and the kids crammed as many play-overs … Continue reading Matiu Island, Marovo Lagoon
