Welcome to 'Jocara', a classic blue-water cruising yacht with traditional sea-keeping ability, comfort and graceful lines...

Jocara is again available for charter, following an extensive refit in New Zealand.

Jocara has been in the Kingdom of Tonga for 10 years, chartering from her private mooring in the Vava'u island group. This is an idyllic collection of tropical islands frequented by Humpback Whales in the months of July-Oct. Fully-crewed charters including food, fuel, accommodation aboard, etc., are available from US$260/person/day.

A Typical day charter might be for 6 guests, starting from the jetty at 09:00 in the morning, with a sumptuous healthy local-produce lunch provided, returning at 16:00 and costing US$200/person. We would motor and sail to a selection of delightful island passages, anchorages and swim/dive spots with pristine beaches to explore, depending on guest preferences and the weather.

This is one of the few places on the planet where you can sail and laze among beautiful tropical islands with so many Humpback whales

Jocara's voyages are not just about adventure, but also about research, education and awareness. Jocara's crew are passionate about the environment and finding ways to empower people to love and protect it.
