We had a great day, but first, one piece of information that we wish we knew but didn't when we made reservations for multiple one-day trips to the islands. If you are making reservations for multiple day trips to several islands, the same boat serves each of the islands. So, we went to Mana to catch the Seaspray one day and we went to Castaway another day--Mana takes about 90 minutes each way and Castaway takes 120 minutes, and the first 90 minutes of both days were the same i.e., same boat goes to South Sea Island, Mana, Castaway and others. Castaway Island is beautiful. The island limits the number of day trippers, and everyone on the island knows who you are since you have to wear an armband. There are limits on how much of the resort you can explore. Having said that, the buffet lunch was very good, we had no problem finding chairs with shade by the beach, we were able to use the two pools as well, the snorkeling was good and everyone on the island was very nice to us. I was wondering if we would have too much time on the island, but the time went very quickly and we could have gladly used more. Highly recommend this trip.
A beautiful relaxing island. The staff are very friendly. Our lunch was fantastic. The ocean was great to swim and snorkelling in.
Fantastic, lots of sunshine and lots of activities especially for children.
Very nice beach and clearer water. Food is limited but good. Asked to go on the jungle walk, like an uphill hike but great views from up there nice and quite. They have a lot of activities you can pay for additionally on the island that make this a good tour. Big island but you are limited to the beach area and jungle walk. Nicer snorkeling here.
Great tour! Island was beautiful. Highly recommended especially if you are staying in the mainland where the beaches aren't at par with those in the islands.
Great island with beautiful Seaview in the restaurant. Delicious buffet. Definitely will come again!
Recommended! The island is very beautiful! Great food as well. Definitely will come back again
Amazing, amazing experience. My favourite part of my recent trip to Fiji. Everything ran like clockwork, service was top notch, staff was extremely helpful and friendly, just A+.
We really enjoyed this cruise, the ship stopped at several other islands on the way to Castaway Island so we had a chance to get a glimpse of other Fiji islands. Castaway itself was beautiful, a lovely beach where we went snorkelling. The hire of flippers and face masks was included. After a nice lunch we went snorkelling again and then had a swim in one of the resort pools until it was time for the ship to pick us up again. It was an enjoyable day although long, we were picked up before 8am and didn't get back to our hotel till 6pm.
I highly recommend doing this day trip to Castaway Island if you are visiting Fiji such a beautiful island from the crystal blue waters to their 5 star service at the bar and restaurant our tour guide was very informative as well I had forgotton her name though. We cant wait to go back maybe even stay a couple of nights
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!!!!
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!
Good trip with nice food great desert and the beer. staff are welcoming and friendly. I went for snorkeling but did not see many fishes. Lots of sea weeds but not much coral to see around the snorkeling area.
Nice and quiet island. Not many visitors. The lunch buffet was very good, better than what we had at Sheraton I'd say. Not many non motorized water sports equipment though.
