Food Provisioning

Provisioning for Sunsail Tonga

We believe that the ability to choose a vacation menu suited to your individual party's tastes is one of the characteristics of a successful and enjoyable sailing vacation. We use regional suppliers for freshness and along with your favorite staples from home; we integrate local culinary flavors into each provisioning package to bring the ambience of your Tongan experience alive.
Complimentary Care Package

When you arrive on board(Upon arrival), you will find our complimentary Sunsail Care Package to help you to get started, included is: ice, paper towels, garbage bags, matches, bath soap, toilet paper, sponge, dishwashing liquid and insect spray.
Two main choices are available to assist you with your Sunsail Tonga charter. In both cases, your provisioning will be onboard the boat when you arrive, allowing you to save effort and sailing time so that you can get out on the water as soon as possible and start enjoying your experience.
