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.
Great crew, fantastic food, awesome beaches and snorkeling!
Worth every penny!
It was great. I would say to all. Go and enjoy the day. The staff on board were friendly and easy to get along with. Lunch was yummy
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.
Had the most brilliant day - beautiful weather, food and wonderful crew!
This tour had the best snorkeling of any tour that we went on. Modriki island where Castaway was filmed was the most picturesque place I have ever been. The sand beaches were white and the clear waters were homes for dozens of species of tropical fish. I only wish that we had more time on this island. We were allowed to stay for only about 45 minutes. The crew was helpful but a bit intimidating. No one went out of their way to smile, though they were still entertaining. We had to take a catamaran for about an hour to reach our sail boat, and once we got on the boat we headed for Modriki. It wasn't clear to us where we would store our things on Modriki so we left them on the boat. We really wanted to take pictures, but the crew left us on the island with no supervision. I ended up having to swim back to the boat to get our camera and then the crew was nice enough to bring me back, but it was still a bit of a headache since we didn't know what to expect ahead of time. After getting back from Modriki, the crew cooked us lunch on the boat. The food was spectacular. We had an assortment of chicken, fish, and sausage, along with some of the best fried rice I have ever eaten, some fresh fruit, bread rolls, and potato salad. After eating, we headed to another island to visit a village. We had a traditional kava ceremony, looked at shops, and best of all, saw the local school. Class was just getting out so we were able to interact with the children. They greeted us with songs and wanted to be in all of our pictures. They were so fun. After spending about an hour in the village, it was time to go back to the marina which took another hour on a Catamaran. Overall, I really enjoyed this tour. The snorkeling was excellent though short, the food was outstanding, and the village visit was the best I had been on. My only complaints are that the crew wasn't all that friendly, and the time felt cut short. I would do it again solely for the opportunity to see Modriki island.
Amazing. Beautiful Islands to see and snorkelling in crystal clear water. The crew kept us well entertained, whipping out their guitars and singing a few songs. Lunch was as fresh as you can hget it as they caught the fish while we were swimming, excellent.
The sailing trip was fun. The tour guide was a wealth of knowledge on the local culture. The sea as rough the day we went out but I would do it again. We met some great people. The snorkeling was great but the under tow was strong so I would suggest if you are not a strong swimmer you should wear a life jacket. I will do it again.
If you are short on time this is a great way to experience "a little bit of everything" that Fiji has to offer. It was an enjoyable way to spend the day!
Would have loved more time on the island to snorkel and swim. Also we were under the impression that we would actually be getting on the sea spray in Nadi not taking the Cat there. We also thought we would help to sail the boat and help with the sails, the boat ran by its motor the entire time.
Disappointed that the boat never got under full sail! Photo in ad is misleading.....
Crew were friendly. However did not warn us before snorkelling (kicked us off boat) and we ended up with 3rd DEGREE BURNS.
Plenty of food and alcohol. Boat was very rough.
Make sure you take sea sick tablets with you and plenty of sun screen apply vigorously before you leave hotel.
Transfer bus back to hotel left WITHOUT us and we had to pay for a taxi back. Was not impressed.
Views of islands were nice and main guy very knowledgeable.
