Voyage to Manihiki delayed until today

Tuesday December 18, 2018 Written by Published in Local

THE Taio Shipping Services boat which was to have left for Manihiki yesterday will now leave sometime today, depending on how long it takes to load cargo aboard the vessel.

 Josh Taio said yesterday that the Lady Moana had not yet arrived back in Rarotonga from a trip to Penryhn.

He said the vessel was actually quite speedy and was expected to reach Manihiki in good time.

Deck space would also be rearranged to make the passengers as comfortable as possible.

The trip was originally to have been undertaken by Taio Shipping Services’ newest ship, the former Norwegian research vessel Grinna, but as of yesterday, the company had not yet received an operating licence from the Transport department.
