Excellent day out, very friendly helpful staff with lots of food/drinks included. I would recommend this trip, whilst it's probably Kid friendly, it's more for the big kids at heart. Average age on my trip was 20 - 60 which was lovely!

Pick up at denarau went smoothly & that was the tone of the day. Pleasant sailing, although the crew may have been more expansive on which island was which. No shortage of amber fluid, & we were well fed as well. Expect that each cruise would be very different, just depends on demographic on the day. Fair to say we... More

The crew were incredibly attentive throughout the whole trip, always checking to see if all us had a drink in hand. Food was aplenty, and they even baked a birthday cake for those who were celebrating. The remote island was absolutely stunning - in the middle of nowhere with golden sand. Really enjoyed sea kayaking while on the island, and... More

Enjoyable day with about 3 hours at sea & 3 hours on a small Fijian island. Fruit, pastries & wide range of drinks available immediately you board the boat & throughout the cruise. Seating under shade mainly, on plastic chairs. Crew entertain with music. Kava ceremony on arrival on the tiny sandy island. Glass bottom boat or snorkelling. Bit rushed... More

A pleasant day out on the ocean that consisted of about 3 hours of sailing to and from the small island we went to (more like a sandbank, it was so small), a half hour in the van, and maybe 3-4 hours on the island snorkeling, line fishing, and eating lunch. It was nice but I would have liked more... More

Landed in Fiji 6 AM from the states and informed the Whales Tale was having to go into dry dock early, due to upcoming weather conditions in FIJI - they were going to have to head to Suva earlier than expected. The crew took special care to let us know we needed to move up our day trip by one... More

I booked a trip online and the form said I would receive a confirmation of availability in email. I received a confirmation email with my booking summary and date/time of trip. My husband and I went to the marina for our 10am departure and were told the ship was out for two weeks to be serviced! What the heck! It... More
