AUD $650,000


Are you ready for a sea change to a beautiful lifestyle and location? This outstanding opportunity is ideal for anyone looking for a new business venture in Vanuatu! It is a genuine sale as the owner is over 65 and is ready to retire. 

Turtle Reef has already gained an excellent reputation and is an easy business to run. It has cruise ship contracts with all the cruise ship companies touring Vanuatu and strong relationships with all the local resorts and tour wholesalers.


Everything is in place for you to take over Vanuatu's largest Glass Bottom Boat and its daily tours - operating out of Port Vila. Enjoy the lifestyle and take visitors out of hectic Port Vila to cruise and snorkel in magnificent Havannah Harbour. 

Covid 19

Due to Covid, there is no tourism industry in Vanuatu at the present time so the business is currently non operational. Vanuatu has been Covid free and is expected to open up to travel from Australia, New Zealand and other markets in the near future.


When tourism resumes, the business will restart immediately. The staff and the local custom owners are enthusiastically waiting for their opportunity to get Turtle Reef operating again and everything is ready to go.


Long established Vanuatu tour business for sale. The business operates Vanuatu's largest Glass Bottom Boat in beautiful Havannah Harbour.  The business has an excellent relationship with Havannah Harbour's custom owners who welcome the boat's visit everyday to a private beach and to a magnificent coral reef.


Over 95% of the tour guests board Turtle Reef's buses in Port Vila. The company owns three buses as follows:

  1. Dong Feng six-wheel drive for 40 passengers

  2. Mitsubishi four-wheel drive for 29 passengers

  3. Foton for 16 passengers


Tourists are picked up from their Port Vila resorts, or, on cruise ship days, they are picked up from the Port Vila cruise ship terminal, and they are transported across the island of Efate on a scenic drive to Havannah Harbour.

Unlike Port Vila harbour which is heavily polluted, Havannah Harbour is a pristine destination surrounded by tropical islands, coral reef and local villages. The water visibility is excellent so the glass bottom boat viewing and the snorkeling experience are first class.

After snorkeling, women from the local village display and sell their handicrafts during the beach visit.


When the morning cruise is completed, the tourists visit a local Havannah Harbour waterfront restaurant for lunch (they purchase their own meals) and then board the buses for their return to Port Vila.

The boat is licensed for up to 42 passengers and the tour frequently achieves over 35 passengers per day during regular cruise ship visits and school holidays.


The business has fantastic long term staff who drive the buses and the boat and provide detailed commentary about Havannah Harbour and life in Vanuatu.
