Sailing Conditions

General Conditions

A Tongan sailing holiday, while popular with confident, experienced sailors who enjoy exhilarating sailing in the cruising grounds deep, clear, turquoise waters, it is also considered a great family-friendly sailing destination.

Tonga offers year round sailing, with the best conditions between May and November. January to March is the wettest time, but is still pleasant most of the day. Calm seas combined with south-easterly trade winds from May to September and north-easterlies in the summer guarantee excellent sailing.

The tidal range is a little over three feet and tidal and wind-driven currents are generally insignificant, except in narrow channels. Navigation is line-of-sight from one island to the next - skippers need to navigate carefully amongst the reefs.
