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

**** last updated July 2018 ****

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

Jocara has been in the Kingdom of Tonga for about nine years now, 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.

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.
