November Nimbus

November Nimbus

November is a lovely time of the year for a cruise through the Islands. The anchorages are mostly empty, the trade winds have somewhat abated and afternoon thunderstorms become more common. The temperature is pretty much perfect…sea 28 degrees and air 28-30.

This year the fishing has been great throughout the month with schools of Mahi-Mahi and Yellowfin Tuna in abundance.

Rendezvous cuts gently through the water, making her way north, Port Havannah, Epi, Ambrym, Pentecost, Maewo…meeting friendly people wherever the anchor is set for the night.

One day merges with the next and before you know it time has been forgotten, you have truly become one with the pace of life in Vanuatu.

Feasts, ceremonies, amazing walks through the jungles, fishing, snorkeling…pretty much whatever you can imagine!

Vanuatu is a real paradise, one of the last unspoilt archipelagos in the Pacific.

Where to next? Come and see for yourself, Vanuatu is an incredible country.

Cultural experiences

As you travel through the chain of islands, you will encounter Ni-Vanuatu people living traditionally. Ni-Vanuatu people are friendly and respectful people who delight in sharing their customs with visitors. You may find yourself being invited to participate in ceremonies, hunting, bush craft, and other activities that are a part of daily life. If you do, please pay due respect and homage for this unique privilege.

Many of the people who live in the outer islands, have very limited access to trade. We suggest taking along bundles of clothing, (can be purchased in Port Vila from local second-hand clothing shops), ukuleles, mosquito bed nets, diesel, petrol and oil for running generators, batteries, sugar, rice and flour, and other “essential” items to give as gifts.

Vanuatu Yacht Services provides exceptional individualized assistance in creating an incredible cruising experience.
