The Blue Cave explores the isolated North-eastern coastline and investigates the significant cathedral cavern that has formed at its nothern point.

What to Bring.

Specific information on each tour or walk is detailed on its respective Tour information page.

Participants should dress to suit the weather and an information sheet is provided subsequent to making a booking. While tramping boots are not required for either the Mt Yasur visit or the walks, closed-in footwear that is robust should be included within participants luggage. Similar to most Vanuatu islands, the coastal reaches have a multitude of coral formations, while Mt Yasur is strewn with rugged lava shapes and boulders. Sturdy flip-flops are also a must with semi-closed in crocs being popular when walking along beaches and through streams. It is also recommended that sunscreen is taken along with a cap or hat.

Participants should bring suitable flasks so that they are able to carry sufficient water for each day. Boiled springwater is available from Rachel's restaurant. A small carry-all travel pack per couple (or every two people) is advisable to hold any spare clothes, water, sun-screen, and camera's as required.

TRIP 6 - Blue Cave Tour does not operate on a Saturday.

The owners of the Blue Cave are SDA church and as a consequence prohibit the operation of the Blue Cave Tour on a Saturday. Therefore when this happens, the walk on Day 3 and the Blue Cave on Day 2 will be swapped to suit.

Minimum Numbers.

All See & Do Trips require a minimum number of two(2) people for them to proceed.

Single travellers are able to be a part of tours that are proceeding, or where more than one single shows interest for a specific date, then we are able to make up minimum numbers accordingly. Single travellers should contact us directly through our inquiry form to organise.

Booking Cut-Off Period.

Online bookings are accepted up to 36 hours prior to the scheduled trip date under consideration. For example, a cut-off of online bookings occurs at midnight on Wednesday night for a trip commencing at lunchtime on the following Friday.

Where bookings are wanted to be made closer than 36 hours to the scheduled tour, these should be requested through our inquiry form. Such late bookings may or may not be possible and are dependent on communications on the island amongst other factors.

Bookings : Deposits and Final Payments.

All bookings can be confirmed with the payment of a booking Deposit or alternatively bookings can be paid in Full. Payments can be made by Bank Transfer (cleared funds) or Credit Card.

On payment of a deposit customers receive a booking acknowledgement, including a booking statement of all payments made and due. The remaining Final Payment shall be received no later than fourteen(14) days prior to the day of the booking. Once the Final Payment is received, customers are sent their Formal Documents in respect to their bookings

Alternatively, customers can choose to make Full Payment at the time of booking, and will be issued their Formal Documents immediately.

Prices are Contingent on Entrance Fees at 1st April.

Our Prices are made up from a number of items, attraction entrance fees included.

In recent years, the Mt Yasur Volcano administration has taken to increase entrance fees at extremely short notice, effective at 1st April year to year. Other Kastom owned attractions have subsequently followed suit, including the Blue Cave, and its associated boat trip. Consequently, our costs are "Contingent", and any differential in entrance fees + boat trip, either side of 1st April are payable as an extra to the booking.

Increases due to "Contingent" entrance fees affect very few people, and are only relevant to bookings that are made prior to 1st April for a scheduled date occurring after 1st April. The majority of bookings are made after 1st April and are not affected in any way.

Full Terms and Conditions of Making a Booking.

Full Terms and Conditions regarding making a booking with Vanuatu Traveller are available here and all customers should take the time read and be comfortable with them. Should you have any questions please contact us via the contact form.
