I would wait until you arrive. Once you get through the market area there will be heaps of vans/drivers waiting to take you where you want to go. Often there are groups of fellow passengers who you will meet on the ship & will want to organize a van & driver and share the costs. Just remember to negotiate a price first & pay at the end. Don't feel pressured to go with the first driver that approaches you. Just walk along and many will be offering their prices to you.

Kia Ora (Hello): we recommend SEE THE REAL VILA TOURS. Charlie Royel...registered/licensed owner operator of brand new air-conditioned tour van...friendly and informative Ni Vanuatuan and fluent English speaker. He can confirm that he was recently awarded a Vanuatu Tourism Award For Excellence...also a Tourism Transport Ambassador Award. Day tours require AUD$10 deposit on-line. Check if total tour price includes entry fees. Pickup @ 8am at cruise ship wharf or in town if staying in Port Vila and and return to ship or town later in afternoon. My favourite visit was Turtle Sanctuary Bay...feeding adult turtles...option of swimming with them. Also coconut crabs, young turtles, pigs and shark enclosures. BBQ lunch - fish, chicken, beef, hot chips & veges, garden salad, selection of fresh fruit pieces. Have also met Charlie's immediate family and many extended family members.The reason for this is because we have visited Vanuatu four times since 2014 and formed many relationships.
