We spent the day with Captain Cook cruises on their private island and loved it. The crew are really friendly and helpful. The same crew on the boat are the same crew that look after you on the island. The boat ride takes just over an hour, with morning tea and afternoon tea. The bbq lunch on the island was... More

My 2 children and mother in law took a day trip to an Island about 1 1/2 hours from Denarau. It was a well organised trip with plenty to do or not depending on what you felt like. I went scuba diving for only the second time in my life and I was taken through the process very well by... More

Thanks so much for the great comments. Due to proximity to the Sleeping Giant, a spectacular land form on the mainland, we do find that the water can lose clarity after prolonged heavy rain. On a good day the visibility can be amazing. Sorry your day was not clear. More

My partner and I visited Tivua Island back in October 2013 and have some wonderful memories. Not many people know you can actually stay overnight on Tivua and I would definitely recommend this! Like everyone else we sailed on Tivua on the glorious Ra Marama sailing ship and due to the wonderful weather we were able to use the sails.... More

The whole day was great. the crew sang songs and mixed with all the travellers all the way there, during lunch and all the way back. The trip to the island and back was extremely relaxing with some fantastic views of the main land and may other tropical islands. The food was very good, with authentic Fijian fare. The fish... More

We had an amazing day on our cruise. It was such a relaxing day. The crew were great on the way to the island introducing themselves and offering us something to eat and drink. We did the snorkelling in the morning which we enjoyed thoroughly. There were lots of fish to see and the water is so clear. It was... More

Our family took this day trip, which was great. Sure the sail was for decoration but the waters and the trip out were brilliant. Two of our party took scuba lessons which were great and very affordable. The other two of us went snorkeling and the guided snorkeling was great, we saw heaps of fish and coral. Lunch was very...

Did this "cruise" February, 2014. The sail is a misnomer- decoration only. The whole experience was a big bore. The snorkeling was very marginal. The food very suspect to the point many passed on eating. The after snorkeling activities & "entertainment" was very marginal and forced. Note that you are a true captive until the boat is scheduled to return.... More

thanks for taking the time to write. We are sorry that due to prevailing winds on your day we were not able to sail. We have a timetable to keep and if the wind is on the bow we are not able to maximize the sailing experience. The lunch we provide normally receives a good response so apologies that it... More

This was my second trip to Tivua Island through Captain Cook Cruises. I was last there 11 years ago. This time I brought my children with me, one 11 years and one 8 years old. The itinerary was exactly the same and I LOVED the trip just as much as the first time. We boarded at Port Denarau and set... More

We booked this day trip for our shore excursion in Lautoka from the Voyager of the Seas. Whilst it certainly was not the cheapest option, it was definitely worth the price for the experience. It was a beautiful Fijian day, we boarded the sail ship Ra Marama from Lautoka and were taken directly to Tivua Island. The journey took about... More

Thanks for the great review, I am pleased you enjoyed the experience. We limit the snorkelling gear to allow us to monitor the number of snorkellers in the water but you are more than welcome to bring your own. Good tip to grab one of our shady shelters near the water but there is also plenty of shade toward the... More
