Based at Paradise Lodge on Aore Island off Espiritu Santo, Debra and Alan from Paradise Lodge and Sailing Adventures, have sailed the Vanuatu Archipelago for over ten years and offer fully skippered sailing charters aboard their Beneteau Oceanis 50 sailing yacht ‘Divine Wind’.
With more than 40 years sailing the Pacific, they finally settled in Vanuatu, the place they now call home, and offer day sails and live-aboard cruises to some of the spectacular hidden jewels in the archipelago. Paradise Lodge and Sailing Adventures designed charters, sailing to remote areas, give their guests a diverse array of experiences.
Anchoring next to flowing waterfalls, snorkelling in crystal-clear waters surrounded by magnificent colour and sea life, spending time engaging with the local communities, learning the art of kava making and drinking, cooking lap lap, participating in community projects, supporting remote schools, aid posts and basic hospitals and enjoying a whole new cultural experience with the ‘happiest people on earth’, are some of the experiences that can be included in a charter.
You can have as much or as little adventure as you desire with an indulgent restful get-away, a full adventure experience and anything in between. Alan and Debra are happy for you to engage in the full sailing aspect and soak up their knowledge and skills or for you to sit back and relax and have them sail you into the sunset as you toast its beauty. Some of the cruises from Paradise Lodge and Sailing Adventures can take you as far away as the beautiful Banks Islands where freshly caught lobster is delivered to the yacht and you can visit beautiful twin waterfalls and isolated islets. Sailing or staying with Debra and Alan on board ‘Divine Wind’ or at ‘Paradise Lodge’, a boutique fully self-contained lodge, directly supports their charitable work in health and education throughout Vanuatu. They also welcome aboard any volunteers wishing to help the communities they visit through their health, education, building skills and other initiatives. Offering great packages for couples and groups alike, with fully inclusive catering or ‘do it yourself’ choices.
