My name is Hainite, a proud resident of our island kingdom. Having lived here all my life, I have deep love and respect for my country and culture and love having opportunities to share that with others.
I have worked and been involved in quite a few NGO organizations including the Vava'u Environmental Protection Association (VEPA). VEPA is currently the only NGO that is a hundred percent committed to the conservation of Vava'u's natural beauty. I have volunteered for VEPA through community awareness programmes, rubbish clean up, tree planting, and much more. I am very passionate about teaching our people to take care of our environment so that it is not only a healthy and happy place for us locals but also a safe environment for all visitors.
I have worked in the tourism industry pretty much my whole adult life. From running my own burger joint and local handicraft shop to working directly with the Vava'u tourist association. I am the perfect guide for you. I have experience and can cater my tours to suit you. Whether you are planning a fun and eventful holiday or just want to relax, I am here for you. I can guarantee you that as your guide, you will not only get to see our island but you will get to experience it first hand.
I really look forward to meeting and taking you on an adventure!
A Recent Review of this guide
We had a wonderful day on this tour in Vavau and Hainite was a great guide and gave us a great insight into island life. The snorkelling was excellent and loved our trip to Swallow Cave. Would highly recommend if you are going to Vavau.
