What You Can Expect

Best Fiji Mamanuca Islands Sailing Cruise including Lunch

Mamanuca Islands

Combine the romance of schooner sailing with the incredible scenery made famous by television and movies, and you have the ideal day cruise around the Mamanaca Islands in Fiji. The classic 83-foot (25-meter) wooden schooner was the star of Adventures of the Seaspray, a television series that was filmed on location in Fiji in the 1960s. She has been lovingly maintained and continues to sail around the islands, dropping anchor in the warm, turquoise waters, where you can swim and snorkel.

You will visit the uninhabited island of Modriki, used in the movie Castaway with Tom Hanks, and have time to explore the long stretches of white sandy beach, laze in the sun or snorkel in the lagoons. On the island of Yanuya, you'll meet the locals, be welcomed with a traditional Kava ceremony and experience every day life in a Fijian village.

There’s nothing like a day at sea to give you a big appetite. Morning and afternoon tea will be served, plus a delicious barbecue lunch, including unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks while aboard.

The schooner sails directly from Mana Island. Transfers to and from Denarau and surrounding islands on board a fast catamaran are included.

Important information on Cultural Awareness
Please note: When visiting villages, as a mark of respect hats are not to be worn in the village, as it is customary that only the Chief of the village is allowed to wear a hat. Women are encouraged to dress modestly and cover their knees.

We had a fabulos day out! The crew are very friendly and so helpful, the food was excellent! Plenty of refreshments too. I really enjoyed the visit to the fijian village. This was not a 'put on front' but the genuine village.

Fantastic trip first on the fast Cat then transferred over to the Sea Spray. We sailed than uninhibited island and enjoyed a sensational experience snorkelling with the tropical fish. An excellent lunch was then served to us back on board, sail home magical with crew singing for us.

Every aspect of the tour went well. From the moment we arrived to the Port till the end, the crew made sure we were taken care of. They were very cordial, fun, attentive and entertaining. I believe everybody should give good tips at the end. They need it to help with "after storm" ravages.

One of the best days in my life. The cruise was wonderful, shame there was no wind but that is beyond the scope of the crew. Everyone was really friendly and the crew knew my name by the time I departed. Mondriki Island is a paradise, try and bring an waterproof camera if you can as there are so many species of fish happily swimming around as you snorkel. Even though the waves are small there is a lot of power behind them and it can be difficult to get up if you sit down in the water. The village is so wonderful to visit and the children are so adorable. The only negative I have to say is that we were rushed into the cars, coach and catamaran. Viator make the tour booking so easy

This is one of the best trips we did while in Fiji! Mondriki is a beautiful island and the Seaspray crew is the BEST!

Great trip. Only 9 guests and 7 crew so VERY well looked after. Excellent food and limitless beer/wine/soft drinks. Crew entertained us well with guitar and singing. Comfortable, on time connectionsboth to and from Denarau and for the South Sea Cruises catamaran.
Mondriki snorkelling was superb and really exclusive; the current was a little strong for us being weaker swimmers. The BBQ lunch was excellent. Visit to the island and the Kava ceremony were interesting. The children and islanders were delightful. Have Fiji cash to buy a few things from their stalls. Another long and tiring but successful trip with Viator. Thanks!
ps confirming your trip by fone can be inconvenient and costly without a local cell fone.
