Cruise the spectacular Yasawa Islands of Fiji and explore a new island and coral reef every morning and afternoon. This wonderful voyage puts a great emphasis on water activities, showcasing the spectacular volcanic islands and dramatic scenery off the north-west coast of the main island. On this seven night adventure you will visit the islands of the Mamanuca and Yasawa including the Waya and beautiful Sacred Islands plus the remote northern islands from Naviti to Yasawa and the famous Sawa-i-lau limestone blue lagoon.
Your South Pacific island cruise adventure begins when you board your ship in Denarau Marina, on the Fijian island of Nadi. This total Fiji cultural and island experience is a combination of three and four night cruises and brings together every fascinating experience of the Yasawa Islands from the north to the south, from culture to nature. Between departures you can enjoy a choice of complimentary tours including the Garden of the Sleeping Giant or a tall ship adventure.
Today you sail to pristine islands of the Mamanuca, which boast some of the most beautiful beaches, sand cays and coral reefs in Fiji. See the island made famous in the film Cast Away, starring Tom Hanks, and experience a traditional village sevusevu ceremony and meet the children of an island school. Music and song is an integral part of Fijian life and the special choral church service is an unforgettable experience.
Swimming, snorkelling, beach combing and glass bottom boat tours complete your daily list of activities giving you the freedom to do as much or as little as you like during the cruise. You ship, the 140 passenger Reef Endeavour, can get up close to all the beautiful reefs and beaches and you will appreciate this when you arrive at the stunning Sacred Islands and Waya.
The second phase of the cruise begins today when the Reef Endeavour heads to the sheltered bays and islands in the remote Northern Yasawa Group - which is everyone’s tropical island dream – long white beaches, turquoise bays and colourful coral reefs. Begin with a visit to the private island of Tivua where you can swim, explore and relax before enjoying dinner.
Today you will explore a thriving island village, visit a handicraft market and experience the culture first hand at the meke and lovo feast. As you cruise this spectacular passage from Yaqeta Island to the Yasawa’s northern reaches, the vista is ever changing. From long tranquil aquamarine lagoons to imposing volcanic peaks, the Northern Yasawa Islands reveal Fiji’s true natural beauty.
Every morning and afternoon on the cruise there is a different destination to explore and experience. The on board dive master will take you diving and snorkelling on all the reefs where the ship anchors and an easy access launching platform gently lowers the ship's glass bottom boat into the waters making exploration safe and comfortable for those who prefer not to get too wet.
The ship's friendly mix of male and female Fijian crew will help you to understand the culture of the islands you visit and the service on board is first class. At any time you can take a break from the busy activities and spoil yourself with a choice of massages or beauty treatments or simply relax by the pool. Tonight enjoy another Enchanted Evening as a guest at the captain’s special Farewell Dinner.
