The remote islands of Tonga are a sailors delight and a natural wonder. The warm people and trade winds work their magic.

The Tongan Islands are 1,000 miles north of New Zealand and 750 miles east of Fiji. Tongan Kings once ruled the South Pacific, the people were renown for their seagoing abilities. Today these islands are jewels in the vast ocean; the sea and islands remain basically in a pristine state, almost a wilderness in the South Pacific.
We set sail in a ketch and crusie between the islands in the old fashioned sail power way. The water and the air are the same temperature and underwater visibility is fantastic.
A group of local muscians serenade us with an island favorite song.
