Nuusafee Kayak Day
Our kayak adventure begins at Vaiula Beach fales in Tafatafa. After a safety briefing the trip continues within the lagoon before a short stretch of open water to the island’s own lagoon.
Turtles can often be seen in the water surrounding the island and the reef passage beside the island provides fascinating snorkelling. Or, if you want, just relax on the private white sand beaches, cooling off in the beckoning water.
Depending on the tides there is usually a chance to explore a small area of mangroves by kayak on the return to Tafatafa.
For groups of experienced kayakers, it is possible to take an afternoon ocean paddle to Aganoa, with its spectacular black sand beaches, before finishing the day at Sinalei Resort. This section is only suitable for kayakers competent in open ocean swells and needs to be organised in advance.
Participants should be confident in the water. The afternoon paddle back to Tafatafa is often into a sea breeze and participants should be reasonably fit.
