As a family of 3 (daughter age 6) we had a great day out. The crew were lovely and helpful. The snorkelling was amazing. You could also kayak and fish. Lunch was very good. Free drink and food all day. I also had a massage which was lovely. Highly recommended!

All in all a good days outing. The staff/crew were amazing, fun, helpful and couldn't be better. It was good to get away from the dirty water and beaches around Denaru, but even the water on our destination island was not quite as clean and clear as I expected, but better than Denaru. We had entertainment and things to do... More

My wife booked this trip for me for my birthday. You are made very welcome, in the normal Fijian way, from the moment they pick you up at the hotel to the moment you return at night. The whole day is total relaxation with beautiful sights as you sail out to the island. There is always someone willing to help... More

We went on this trip yesterday. The staff were lovely and we so glad we chose this tour out of the vast array of tours available. We were a little late so when the driver came back to get us we were ushered on board with a few other couples who were also late and we motored off quite quickly.... More

Wanted a small, all inclusive boat trip to a private island where I could relax, snorkel and simply enjoy the day. Well we found it on this trip. I would highly recommend for all ages. The staff are wonderful, massages fantastic and the food and drinks first class. Thanks to all the staff for a memorable last day in Fiji.

Husband and I went on this cruise and loved it. I'm not a big drinker but still enjoyed the trip there and back. The schooner we went to (which they advertised; it seems every negative critic on this was expecting a secluded tropical lush island, seriously??) was well equipped with clean bathrooms and lots of shaded bures and palms. The... More

We had a wonderful day on the Whale's tale. We had a sing-along on the boat, very nice breakfast and lunch, fun snorkelling, and a scenic cruise. Thanks.

Yes, the coral is less than it was, yes the island facilities are simple. To those who've complained about these things, please remember a HUGE cyclone hit this area of Fiji in 2013, causing considerable damage to tiny Schooner Island. Nature is taking time to rebuild the reef and the state of the economy means rebuilding structures takes time also.... More

Great day out! Got picked up at the resort on Denarau and taken to the port. Once on board we were greeted by the crew and served breakfast and bubbly.Great way to start the day! The trip had a small group of around twenty people on the day and this was a good size as there was plenty of room... More

What a great day out! The crew of the Whales Tale are excellent in service, hospitality and friendliness. We were plied with food and drinks all day which were very good. A birthday for some on the cruise was celebrated with a cake baked by the crew and a sing-a-long of Happy Birthday Fiji style. On the island there was... More
