Full description
Set sail by tall ship to idyllic Tivua Island from Nadi on a full-day introduction to cruising the islands of Fiji. Tivua is surrounded by 500 acres of spectacular coral reef, is a sanctuary for turtles during the nesting season, and boasts a ring of white sandy beaches. As you sail on the 2-masted tall ship Ra Marama you can sunbathe on the bowsprit, watch for dolphins playing in the waves below, and enjoy the music and entertainment on board. This historic brigantine, named after a famous 19th-century Fijian war canoe, was built for the Governor General of Fiji in 1957. When you arrive at Tivua Island, you can swim in the tropical waters, explore the island, or simply relax on a pristine sandy beach. If you're feeling energetic, there’s a selection of water activities available, including snorkeling and canoeing. Indulge in a delicious buffet BBQ lunch before sailing back to Nadi. The ship departs daily from Port Denarau, Nadi, at 10:00 AM and return to port at 5:00 PM.

Gorgeous Island & amazing trip to Tivua! The Fijian staff were awesome! Loved the singing & guitar playing on the boat. It poured down on our trip back & we got drenched but it was such a wonderful day & the Fijians were all so happy, we didn't care! Highly recommended!

That was an excellent experience for our second day in Fiji! The vibe was very nice on the cruise, all the cruise staff were friendly and helpful especially Lee. He taught us snorkeling and its all free lesson! The morning tea and lunch were great Too. Don't eat too much breakfast before you get on this sail

Incredible day. True paradise and what you’d hope to experience while in Fiji. Cruise out and back was beautiful. You have the island to yourself with loads of huts to chill out in and enjoy the view. Lunch was great and the crew was amazing. We’re booking another one before we leave.
