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 destination alive.

The Moorings Provisioning Packages
Full & Split provisioning packages are offered
Easy-On-The-Cook is designed for those who wish to take a break from cooking evening meals. We will deliver to your yacht everything you need for breakfast, lunch and snacks for each day of your charter, and include one dinner with the number of days starting at 6 days and up, allowing you to sample local restaurants or dine on the day's fresh catch the remaining evenings.
Split Provisioning is our most popular option, with standard or personalized packages available at most destinations. This provides breakfast, lunch and snacks for each day of your charter and dinners for about half the evenings you will spend aboard, allowing you to dine onboard more often.
Full Provisioning is available for those who wish to eat ALL meals aboard.
We also offer a wide selection of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages you can order ahead. For last minute items, The Moorings operates fully stocked dockside provisioning and beverage store in Tonga.
Located on The Moorings base, Mango Cafe offers catering for every occasion from that late bite on arrival to fully catered weddings. See Mango Cafe menu (pdf)
Self Provisioning - other shops (limited availability)
Your order will need to be at the base at least 14 days before your charter. The base will organise the delivery of your provisions, and have them aboard your yacht, the day of your arrival. For emergency items, there is a supermarket 5mins drive from the Moorings office.
