Spent a great day out with the family on boxing day. Peter's trimaran is perfect for divers and non-divers alike and he can take you to places that are not easily accessible otherwise. Very intimate and relaxed cruise, we were a family of 6 (3 divers, 3 non-divers) and there was only us and another couple on the boat. Peter... More

Yet again Peter has delivered a magic day on and below the water. Let's start with Hat Island - 40m visibility, a decent current but nothing unmanageable. The water here was like looking through a glass of tap water it was that clear. The fish life and coral were amazing, particularly the Gorgonian Fans, which are very healthy and quite... More

This was an absolutely highlight and a down day with family after a wedding. Peter, George and John picked us up from the resort and took us up to Havannah where the trimarane was moored. Lovely boat. Headed off to Hat Island and consumed a cup of tea and a croissant along the way. The snorkelling was brilliant and although... More

Snorkelled at Hat Island, the beach across from that plus Paul's Rock. The latter is not well known and AMAZING! Lunch was basic but good and Peter was a great story-teller. Worth the money.

4 of us had a great day with Peter, He was really informed about the local area & customs. He took us to some great dive sites. The food was fresh & plentiful, I would recommend anyone traveling to Port Villa to make a day of it. Without a doubt the best day we had in Vanuatu

The trip is overpriced for the standard of the van for pick up and the boat and dinghy used for the trip. Nothing comfortable to sit on on the boat. I asked for a cup of tea and was told I had to wait another hour until it was time for that. I was offered bottled water. If you do... More

Sail away cruises Vanutu This is the best day out in and around Port Vila. First the boat, a wooden trimaran and while it is far from the luxury of some of the plastic fantastics that you can charter here, what it lacks in luxury it more than makes up for in charm and character. That's not to say it... More

Peter is absolutely fantastic, this was his first trip out since the cyclone and he did a fabulous job! I love that he has lived in Vanuatu for so long that he's practically a local! The catamaran is just great, it was stunning sitting out in the sunshine sailing along. We had three snorkelling spots that we stopped at, had... More

This is the second time we have been with Peter on his day curise, last one was 18 years ago and still is a great day out. Stopping at 3 spots to snorkle, great lunch, informative. Easy hotel pickup/drop off. Not crowded on board with room to move about. Sailing home was great after a great day out. Highly recommended.

We did a day trip with Sailaway in August, which ended up including three snorkeling spots and a bit of a sailing. We met the minibus at the Port Vila Post Office at around 8am, which was driven by the skipper Peter with his 2 crew. The marina itself was a 30 minute drive to the West, up and over... More
