This half day trip was wonderful. I had 2 hours on South Sea Island. It's very small but well set up and organised. We did trip in their submersible - sort of like a submarine where you can see the coral and fish without actually snorkling. They did also have snorkling if you wanted to. I prefer to sit on the beach in the sun.
We had a wonderful day on South Sea Island! Snorkelling, kayaking, lounging, swimming, unlimited beers - life was good.
It was a great experience!! The people of the island are very friendly and made sure that we have fun!! Upon arrival on the island, there was schedule of activities on a board and we were told about available water sports for us to do ie scuba diving, snorkling, kayak, sailing...unlimited drinks, massage available, bbq lunch. They also entertained us with their dance and songs. It was a wonderful day!! My daughter can't stop talking about her experience in scuba diving, that this is her most fun and unforgettable vacation!!
The kids and I had a fantastic time on the South Sea Island. This was our second time, so we knew what to expect, and it didn't disappoint! We chose the full day tour instead of the half day.
The hotel pick up and check in went without a hitch. The 30 minute cruise out to the island was comfortable and the views spectacular.You can do as little or as much as you want on this island, lay one of the large hammocks dotted around the island or laze on one of the many deck chairs on the beach; or you can snorkel with the beautiful fish, go on the semi-sub to see deeper views of fish, go on the snorkelling tour in deeper water, you can kayak and/or stand up paddle board which is all included in your cost. The included lunch was very nice with a good selection of food. The included drinks were good also. The only thing you have to pay for is Diving, ice-cream and souvenirs if that is what you want. Highly recommended. Enjoy.
I WAS ON THE TRIP ALSO WITH MERE,IT WAS A GREAT TIME ON SOUTH SEA.WELL ORGANISED AND MOST ENJOYABLE.FOOD AND ENTERTAINMENT FANTASTIC.WOULD HIGLY RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS.THANK YOU FOR A GREAT TIME.
Best value!! Picked up from hotel and taken to boat. Short half hour ride. The other islands take a lot longer to get to. Snorkelling was great plenty of colourful fish - could have been a bit longer but two sessions in the day. Ride on the semisubmersible was good. Lunch, all day free drinks. Nice small pool. Some local dancing and singing. Full day is the way to go. Some half day tourists wanted to extend till late. Returned to hotel. Exhausted. Take plenty of sunscreen. Great day.
Our trip to South Sea Island was better than imagined it would be. My son had lots of fun swimming and snorkeling while I sipped a nice cold drink on the sand. Our BBQ lunch was awesome and the people were the friendliest and loving people I have ever met. We met a German girl who was on the trip by herself and I asked her to hang with us for the day so she had someone to talk to and we all enjoyed relaxing and swimming in the beautiful clear waters. I would definitely go again and recommend for everyone to go and meet these wonderful people. The island is only small but so much to do. We loved it.
This was the best day at the beach EVER! The weather was fabulous, the waters were crystal clear and it was just so RELAXING. Just 30 minutes from Denarau Marina. Staff, were really nice and friendly. The food was great. They had a BBQ lunch (buffet) on the island, which included fish, lamb sausages, chicken, steak, bread rolls, fried rice, 3 different types of salads and fruit salad. Unlimited drinks were included. In fact I changed my full day tour to a half day one, as I was unsure of how my 2 yr. old would take to the tour…but he had the time of his life! I regretted changing it!!! You could swim to your heart’s desire. There were guided snorkelling tours, you could kayak or go for diving lessons or have a massage. The diving lessons and massages were for an extra fee. They had a coconut demonstration, which included husking and breaking a coconut. This is normally followed by beach volley-ball; however, we missed out on this due to the weather becoming windy. Though, we thought it was just perfect! The only thing that I was slightly disappointed about was the “Finding Nemo” sub-marine, this is normally included on the tour, however, at the time that we went it was broken/ under-going maintenance, so we didn’t get a chance to go on it. Over-all, a PERFECT day on a small but stunning island!
I highly recommend this cruise to everyone! its a small beautiful island and full of fun!
here is my experience--
- small ship ride around 30 minutes from Nadi
-pick up is available from all major resorts. We got picked up from the ShangriLa Fijian resort which is an hour away from Nadi
-On the island- free drinks all day
-great scuba and snorkeling. I will say that my scuba instructor could have been more professional but no major complaints
-you can relax read a book, get a massage or spend the entire day in the water either snorkeling, scuba diving or just splashing around
this is a fantastic trip!
A small island than some advetised but definitely has more.. guess we saved the best for last for this South Sea island.. You have your own sheltered resting spot with two chairs, the submarine morning activity option was fantastic for under sea fish and coral viewing.. the staff were lovely and were right there for my sons needs with first aid care.. and the compimentary drinks took the cake for us as for our other island experiences we had to pay for drinks. Thankyou for your prompt caring service and the warm welcome and departure
Highly recommend!! By far one of the best days we had in Fiji!! Lunch was delicious!!
This was a wonderful full day trip for my family (me, hubby and girls aged 10 and 4). Transport to the island on time and quick. Island was beautiful. Tour guides and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The lunch was delicious. The snorkeling and submarine tour was very good as well. There is a pool on the island which was perfect for my 4 year old. Very relaxing day and completely enjoyable. I highly recommend wearing thongs on the beach though only because of the shells but you would expect that on a tropical island. Very happy :)
This tour turned out to be a highlight of our Fiji holiday. I had initially booked a half day trip as I thought my kids, aged 3 and 6 would not last the whole day. When I confirmed the day prior, the half day trip was not available but I was upgraded to a full day trip. This turned out well as once we got to South Sea Island, we didn't want to hurry away. The kids loved the submarine trip, kids club , the pool and looking at coral and crabs. My husband and I enjoyed snorkelling, massages, and relaxing in the hammocks. We were staying on the Coral Coast and this tour allowed us to experience an island without too much fuss. It was very child friendly. The staff could not do enough to help. I would highly recommend this day trip to families with young children.
