If you wan't peace, quiet and relaxation, this is the place to go. The beach is white, soft and sandy. The water is very calm. The water has some sea grass/sea weed at the bottom( just wear water shoes if you don't like it.) The snorkeling was just ok and if you do want to snorkel pickup up your gear right away. They ran out so my mom and I had to share a snorkel set. The food was included and good and the staff was friendly. Plus you get to see other islands while you boat to Castaway Island. Just a note this is NOT where they filmed the movie Castaway Island, that is located on another island called Modriki. I would highly recommend this tour-great snorkeling, good food, you must like to be on a boat and you get to see the Yanua village on Yanua island.
Castaway island is beautiful. we had a super good day, relaxing on the beach. and the resort is very nice might come back have a holiday here when i have cus the rate for the room looks expensive for me :p
A small, beautiful and relaxing place to go. Variety for lunch options which was great, staff were very friendly and snorkelling great too. Definitely recommend this!
The day trip to Castaway island was amazing. Trip out on the boat was great because you stop at other islands, a great way to see other islands. Then you are free to enjoy the day however you like. We chose lazing on the beach and snorkelling in the blue waters! Great day out, highly recommend it!!!
This was an amazing experience and well worth the money.
Suitable for all ages as there are many activities on the island.
People there are very friendly and accommodating.
Beautiful!! The day began with Resort pick up to the ship then off to the island. The various stops along the way provided a unique multi-island site seeing trip. The ship was comfortable and spacious with the staff professional. Castaway Island was beautiful, snorkeling gear was easily accessable and clean, and lunch on the beach was professionally prepared, filling and tasted great. The seven of us had a fun, relaxing and fantastic time. The staff on Castaway welcomed us with songs of greetings, open arms, always ready for picture taking, open tours, hammocks, and well versed on site seeing items. The return trip on the ship and Resort drop off was timely. Highly recommend this trip!!!!
Brilliant! Relaxed location, friendly staff and great activities. Would definately go again.
My experience to Castaway Island on a day cruise was fantastic from the pick up from the hotel to a wonderful day on the island to being returned to the hotel all without a worry. The tour escort was a lovely Fijian lady who couldn't do enough to help. I would highly recommend Viator.
This day cruise was amazing! There is no other way to explain it. Transfers were arranged to and from our resort. It took 2.5 hours to get to the island on the cruiseboat/yacht but you get to see all the other islands on the way which was fantastic. The boat has a kiosk/bar and toilet facilities and a sun deck. The only downside was that it was a little bit crowded. But as everyone gets off to go to their island it frees up a lot of space. The island itself is beautiful and the lunch provided was enough to fill us up and more! We snorkelled, kayaked swam and sun baked. We wanted to jet ski but unfortunately it was fully booked out. Everything was so easy and it was such a relaxing day. I just wish we could have stayed on the island for longer! While you're there just relax on Fiji time!
Great boat trip out to island, fantastic snorkelling, excellent massage, friendly staff and excellent food
So glad we booked everything on line. The coach tranferes were superb except would have preferred a bigger coach when coming back to Naviti. On the whole it was fabulous. Castaway was just magical and food was yummmm!!
Excellent Day. Time on Castaway Is. Great.
Transfers from Wharf to Hotel a bit confusing.
The Island was amazing and we had a wonderful time. Snorkeling was great. We were disappointed that on the way home we thought the tour included free drinks and entertainment but on the boat we were told it wasn't included and to get that we had to pay extra... Would have been a perfect end to a perfect day relaxing back with a glass of wine. I think this should be sorted out as we feel we didn't get what we paid for.
The transfer transport was not of a standard that I would expect. On the way home the mini bus had to get changed and there was no suspension really fun for 2hrs... That's the bad stuff. South Seas were excellent, the staff were fantastic, and Castaway island is so beautiful. We could have stayed there forever.We are definitely going back there one day for a holiday. Food was awesome too.
