Tivua Island is the perfect day-trip destination in Fiji. Encircled by white-sand beaches and surrounded by coral reef, the pristine tropical island functions as a sea turtle sanctuary during nesting season.
After hotel pickup, step aboard the Ra Marama, a brigantine (two-masted sailing ship) built in 1957 and named after a 19th-century war canoe. Enjoy Fijian music by the entertaining crew and watch for dolphins playing in the bow wave as you’re served morning tea aboard the tall ship.
Upon arrival at Tivua Island, take part in a yaqona (kava) welcome ceremony. You can decide how to while away the hours: swim in the azure sea, stroll around the island, or sunbathe on the sandy shoreline. If you're feeling energetic, a selection of activities such as snorkeling, beach volleyball, reef fishing and canoeing is included. Or perhaps set out for some coral viewing on a glass-bottom boat tour.
Dig into a buffet luncheon including barbecue chicken, whole baked fish, sausages, fresh salads, fruit and fresh-baked bread rolls accompanied by local beer, wine and soft drinks. Enjoy afternoon tea before the return sail to your starting point, with drop-off at your hotel by day's end.
Bula... Fantastic day. Staff are wonderful and organized. Pickup was on time. Perfect sailing day. Will definitely do again as it's well worth the money.
a most enjoyable time was had by all .a great way to spend a day. thank you .
Beautiful sailing boat and wonderful staff made the day very special for my husband and I. Tivua Island was incredible with our own undercover area with chairs and a bean bag where we sat and overlooked the stunning water and surrounds. The lunch on the island was delicious and extremely substantial with free flowing beer, wine and soft drinks. Wouldn't hesitate to do this cruise again with Captain Cook Cruises next time I visit Fiji.
Great tour guides and lots of opportunity to snorkel and even scuba dive. Bring sunscreen!
Great staff, and all-round great experience. Must do when in Denarau!

Great day out. Only negative is there wasn't enough time on the island. BBQ lunch was wonderful and drinks were abundant.
A joyous escape to a private island. The crew was friendly, courteous and helpful.
