This was a great day out. The boat ride is slow but we were on Fiji time and that didn't bother us. Food is supplied and so is soft drink, wine, beer, water etc. The staff kept us entertained on the boat and then we snorkeled, swam, looked at the fish in the glass bottom boat, had a Kava ceremony,...

What a great way to spend an entire day! From breakfast on the boat to lunch on an island to snorkeling in clear water. The staff was fantastic and also very caring and thoughtful, that's the Fijian way. Must do while in Fiji!!

The staff went out of their way to make all of their guests feel welcome and comfortable. The schooner was as shown on the brochure, there was heaps of food, and plenty of it, the drinks kept flowing with the staff continually asking guests if they could get them another drink and the entertainment was great. All in all, a... More

This was a great cruise. We went to the mamanuca island and spent a few hours, free snorkeling. Great atmosphere on the boat with the guitars playing tunes. I would recommend for a couple

This is a must do trip. Very organised, just brilliant from the minute you step aboard. The staff cannot do enough for you and their attentiveness makes the 90 minute journey to Schooner Island very pleasurable. Breakfast immediately available on boarding- very fresh pastries & fruit. Crew continuously interacting with all on board, they cannot do enough for you. All... More

I would highly recommend this day trip - the staff are very friendly and the island is beautiful. Plenty of drinks, including beer and wine and the lunch was pretty good too!!! I had a woman at the marina comment that everyone that came off the Whale's Tale had a huge smile on their face. The trip home was lots... More

One of the best day trips we have ever been on and definitely the highlight of our trip. Well worth the $125AUD. The price included the day out and transfers to and from our hotels. We were blown away with our experience, we did a little bit of research on day trips before leaving and the Whales Tale had the... More
