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.

The tour was pretty good. The crew is super friendly and funny. The food is good as well. Some times it was kind of difficult with the coordination but all in all it was a great trip. Don't expect too much of the snorkeling. There are many fish but most of the reef is dead.

Totally worth doing!

Lee and the team running the tour were absolutely fantastic! Thank you to Amos for explaining the workings of the reef and sorting out all the snorkeling gear. It was such a fun and relaxing day! Totally recommend to anyone considering this as a day trip. My only request is that Get Your Guide provide details on pick up times as I missed my first pick up. Thankfully the cruise team were able to fit me in another day and all was well in the world :)

the staff, the venue and the service were all exceptional.

We were a little disappointed that we did not get to go aboard the big old sailing ship, as we had seen in the advertising, however, the boat they gave us was excellent, as were the staff, the service and the wonderful island we enjoyed for the day. It was a shame the tide went out, this made swimming after lunch impossible, but a great day was had by all.
