About The Catamaran
Golden Wing” is a sailing trimaran with a big, clear deck area, providing room to spread out and enjoying your day on the water. The deck is designed so that passengers can sit on the cabin ‘roof’ spanning the main hull and wing decks.

There is a deck awning for protection from the sun, and the boat has the ability to anchor directly over all reefs so access for snorkelling is as easy as just jumping in. An experienced Australian skipper and friendly, helpful  ni-Vanuatu crew, all add up to making you cruise a magical experience.

An inflatable dinghy is used for getting to and from shore. All snorkeling gear, including life vests for non-swimmers is provided.

We return to the resort at the end of the day. There’s time to refresh before we head out for dinner tonight at a local spot for a delicious evening of Thai food.
