Our day did not start well with rain and cold weather.Quite enjoyed sailing out to the island but once there it was too cold for most people to enjoy the facilities and even the volleyball had gone missing.Lunch was adequate and filling and the crew were friendly.Sensible service of alcohol seems to be an unknown concept and our return trip...

We were happy to go with Whales Tale as it is a locally run tour however the boat was a little shaky and the chairs moved like those on the Titanic. The trip to the private island was great but beware there is not a great deal of shade with good seating when you get there. Sadly "all you can... More

Spent a day on the whale tale. Enjoyed the boat and the island. Food was good and the beer was plentiful. The best part of all was the crew who really do everything to make you comfortable. You never have to ask for another drink as they always get there first..

Thanks to the crew aboard the Whale's Tale. We had a brilliant day with you and you looked after us all brilliantly. The crew constantly make sure you have everything you need and there's plenty of food and refreshments provided all day long. I even had the opportunity to do a scuba dive from our destination island for a very... More

We travelled with a party of 11 people to celebrate a 70th birthday. We were picked up at the resort on time and a short trip to the Marina. Welcomed on board to breakfast and champagne. The following 1.5hrs was pleasurable as we made a bee line to the private island. The wind picked up as we arrived which meant... More

I visited Fiji with my father and we had to choose the cruise that will give us a maximum value and will suit both of us. This indeed was the one – not too crowded, super friendly team, complete Fiji experience of music, food, drinks and even Kava. We cruised along the islands and the staff was happy to explain... More

As soon as i set eyes on the "whales tale" i knew we had chosen the right boat trip. Approaching the boat on the wharf we were greeted with big happy smiling faces, the crew playing music it was just superb. Once on board & seated on the upper deck some of the crew introduced themselves & we were offered... More

This day was enjoyable, however the trip was sold to us " 5 island tour" we only visited one island and it took you 2 minutes to walk around. We were collected 45 mins late from our resort so we were then late to the Port and we were rushed to snorkel, rushed to fish, then it was lunch, then... More

During our short vacations to Fiji we decided to go snorkeling with Whales Tales. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. All you could eat and drink as they took you out to their own private island to snorkel, swim, eat, fish, and play volleyball, or just relax. Unfortunately the day we visited was windy so snorkeling could have been better,... More
