This tour was awesome! The crew were fantastic really friendly and funny, the food was great and it felt like it kept on going, drinks kept on flowing aswell. Snorkeling was great! we had never been snorkeling before and they help us and gudied us. Definitely a trip to remember!! VINAKA!!
Great people, great journey, breathtaking view, the group is not too big and not too small, just perfect size for people who would like to enjoy the cruise without get in to big crowd. Highly recommended. Lyn from China.
a wonderful day trip on the boat, all crew members are very nice and friendly. laughter everywhere.Good food and drinks. unfortunately i hurt my back so cant do snorkeling, but glass bottom boat is also lovely..
Fantastic, everyone on the Whales Tale Cruise was so helpful and in such a positive mood. They came to learn I was a singer and involved me and had me sing some songs with the ukulele/guitar band that played on board. We snorkelled and saw the gorgeous reefs so close to Snorkel Islands shore, lazed around on the beach, had a scrumptious buffet lunch and were well accomodated whilst on board with food and beverages too. Would do the same cruise over and over, it would never tire me. Best day ever!
A wonderful day out,good food ,interesting snorkelling,limited numbers, so almost one to one with crew,who entertained us out and back with traditional Fijian music interspersed with well known melodies. I think the crew were enjoying themselves more than we were !! This is a must if you are in Fiji. Kaliti with Rosie Holidays will arrange everything for you. The island you visit is exclusive to this cruise so for us there was only 12 guests plus the crew. Absolutely TERRIFIC.
Incredible!! The seven of us loved this tour. From the moment we were picked up at the Resort and boarded the ship the crew were eager to learn our names were professional, humorous, ready to refill drinks which included champagne, beer, wine, etc., the food on the ship was amazing and the crew sang most of the time. The island was deserted except for us guests, my husband was made chief for the day and assigned to participate in the island ceremony which included Kava. We power snorkeled around the island with very knowledgeable and professional leaders which led us to the drop off and the most amazing sea life we had ever seen. Of the seven of us we power snorkeled, had massages, deep sea fished, and or viewed sea life from a glass bottom boat. Lunch was a variety of meats with all the fixings including desert and drinks. On the return trip the crew baked 2 cakes and birthdays, anniversaries, wedding/honeymoons were celebrated by all. My husband and I danced on the roof of the cabin next to full blowing sails as the crew sang a personal anniversary song to us - amazing!! These people are truly gifted in welcoming their guests. Thank you Whales Tales!! Highly recommend this cruise!!
We highly recommend the Whales Tale Cruise. Beautiful breakfast and lunch with all you can drink, Kava ceremony, snorkelling, fishing and plenty of island activities, all topped off by the amazing and friendly crew catering to every need and providing great entertainment. The best Fiji has to offer.
We are a family of 4 with 2 boys 9 and 11. We also took my parents, both in their 60's with us for a day of fun in the sun and were not dissappointed! I must admit we had the perfect for it and totally enjoyed our experience. The crew were extremely friendly and helpful. A big shout out to big Paul who could not give you enough drinks (some of mine ended up in the deep blue ocean, because he didn't understand "I've had enough!"). Knox was also great and entertained us on the way out with some of the other crew by playing his guitar and singing for us. Our boys were the only two kids on this trip and also got to pilot the schooner part of the way back, which they got a huge kick out of. And I must say the jump off the top of the schooner at the end of the day on the island was awesome and totally irristable with my 68 year old father joining in the fun! This tour was definitely one of the top highlights of a magical holiday in one of the friendliest places on Earth!
The tour was awesome. The crew of the boat were hell bent on making sure we all had a great time, and they succeeded! Not many tours I would say this about, but I would seriously consider doing this one again if I go back to Fiji.
We had a fantastic day! The staff were especially wonderful - they made my 4 year old feel like she was an honorary crew member and went out of their way to look after us. The food was amazing, as was the island. It was a relaxing and idyllic way to spend the day!
A great day out with a friendly and entertaining crew. All inclusive day so we didn't need to worry about a thing. The only negative point was that the inclusive drinks didn't included spirits as advertised here, but I'm more than happy with a beer in hand, so it didn't bother me too much and was definitely made up for by the experiences of the day.
Highly recommend!! All staff very helpful, lovely and friendly and absolutely awesome with children. It was a beautiful and relaxing day out. Thanks everyone
This trip was one of the highlights of our Fiji holiday. Awesome crew, awesome food, awesome atmosphere! If you are looking for an incredible day trip to the Mamanucas book this one! We could not have asked for more :)
It was a fabulous day out! The atmosphere, staff and whole experience was unforgettable. All day the alcohol and cheer flowed. The staff were attentive and many did one on one work when snorkelling to help the unexperinced. It was a gorgeous private island. I would highly recommend this cruise!!
Great service, great scenery, beautiful boat. The staff was very welcoming and enthusiastic. They offered great entertainment during the day such as massage, singing, volley-ball, snorkeling and fishing. The ship is clean and has lots of on-deck sitting area. The island on which we stop is also clean and very beautiful. I went with my sister and and we had a wonderful day. We come from the Caribbean so we are accustomed to that kind of sites, but nevertheless, we were blown away by the excellence of the day and the beauty of the area. I highly recommend!
amazing tour!!!! i was abit under the weather from the night before so a boat was the last thing i wanted to go on, but the staff were amazing!!! they were so sweet and caring always asking if i was ok, feeding me and getting me water etc. as soon as i hit that island i was cured! the sand and the water and the whole surroundings were perfect! beautiful weather really helped and the snorkelling was great. i dont really like snorkelling but as soon as i was in the water i just went and didnt want to stop. lunch was a feast and drinks were on going! fantastic exerpeice!!! (went with 3 girls 26y/o from aus)
The tour guides were so friendly, we couldn't have asked for a better day!
You can't beat the price of this excursion. If you're looking for a nice boat ride, fun in the sun, and all you can eat and drink, then this is perfect for you. The resorts are expensive so this trip pays for itself in food and drinks. We were able to rent a power snorkeling equipment also
Excelent, the crew was great, always trying us to have our glasses full and also singing during the trip. The island was for the 15 people on board. It was very nice also because we were few people so we can know each other. Snorkeling there was wonderful. I recommend this tour.
