Do you ever wish you could escape this modern world and step back in time to a place where the great explorers found tropical island paradises and people untouched by western society?

It does still exist.

Papua New Guinea holds so many wonderful secrets and is one of the most-diverse and untouched lands on earth.

Adventures In Paradise Yacht Charters can take you on a voyage of discovery around the beautiful tropical islands of the Bismarck Archipelago in New Ireland province on Tiki Tu, a 33’ sailing catamaran.

Crystal clear water, white sandy beaches, friendly people, spectacular coral reefs, world class surf breaks, abundant fishing, picturesque villages, fascinating cultures, idyllic palms and unforgettable sunsets make this region a traveller’s delight and an unspoilt, isolated paradise.

What better way to completely experience all that is on offer here than the simplicity and freedom of live-aboard yacht charter?

The islands of the Bismarck Archipelago are untouched by mass tourism, untroubled by five-star resorts and package tourists.

Every experience that you have will feel like you are the first to experience it, the first person to visit this island village, surf this wave or snorkel on this reef.

New Ireland is an honest place full of people ready to invite you into their lives and their homes and allow you to have an experience that you will never, ever forget.

Tiki Tu’s hosts, Adam and Dani Smith, can offer you an exclusive, uncomplicated, unbelievable experience concentrating on your interests.

Both Adam and Dani are qualified skippers, with many years of experience sailing in Australian and PNG waters.

Dani also brings with her over 10 years in Melbourne restaurants, so you can be guaranteed variety and attention to detail in each meal.

Every charter is tailored to the desires of those on board.

There are no set departure dates or lengths of charter.

Enjoy a few days’ island hopping and snorkelling, or set sail for a month and do it all, exploring river systems, fishing, snorkelling, hiking, surfing, visiting villages and more.

The choice is yours.

“With the beauty of the islands, their sheltered waters and rich local culture, you have great potential for a classic sailing holiday.

“Adventures In Paradise Yacht Charters are based on Nusalik Island next to Nusa Island Retreat, where they moor their beautiful 10m three-cabined sailing catamaran, Tiki Tu.

“Half-day, full-day and extended charters are offered for you to visit uninhabited islands; seek out uncrowded surf breaks; drop in at Tabar Island, a stronghold of traditional carving; or visit the famous shark callers of St George’s Channel who hunt sharks by tapping shells against the sides of their dugouts.

“ Sit back and lap it up or learn to sail as part of the crew,” writes Jeremy Tredinnick, Action Asia Magazine.

Tiki Tu is a 10mperformance cruising catamaran.

She is light, allowing for excellent performance in light airs.

She is spacious, with 56 sq m of deck space, including a large forward trampoline to soak up the sun.

She has an awning which covers the whole back deck to shade you from the sun and keep you dry during the tropical rains whilst at anchor.

Tiki Tu is ideal for relaxing and peaceful cruising as she sits flat in the water without the constant roll that monohulls offer.

Her draft is under one metre, allowing her to enter shallow anchorages very close to the islands, and the reefs.

Tiki Tu is not a ‘luxury’ catamaran, but she offers comfortable accommodation for the adventurous traveller of all ages who are seeking a voyage through paradise.

Enjoy a voyage of discovery through the beautiful and unspoilt islands of New Ireland Province on board Tiki Tu.
