The crew was very nice. The vessel was a beautiful old wooden sail boat. The breakfast was fruits, pastries, and champagne! They said it was a 4 island cruise, but really you just sail past 3 and stop at the last one. It is a private island and you have the choice of Scuba, kayak, glass bottom boat, snorkel, sit... More

This cruise was amazing! One of the staff, Mike, is really awesome!!! He went with me, Ed, and this guy Anik who we met on the cruise to go snorkeling and he guided us throughout. All the crew members are really nice and friendly. The food was great and the pick-up and drop-off from our hotel was great!!!!

A nice day sailing with nice food and unlimited drinks. Sailed past a few small islands and stopped at one where we had choices of watching coral and fish in a glass bottom boat, snorkelling, kayaking, fishing or just laying around soaking up the sun. Friendly staff.

My wife and I did the Whales Tales trip yesterday, what an awesome day we had. From the minute we stepped on the boat until stepping off at the end of the day, the crew could not do anymore for us to make our day so enjoyable. There was plenty of food, drinks and lots of laughter. The island itself... More

My husband & I had a great day out on the Schooner Whales Tales!! Staff were friendly & ensured that everyone had a good time throughout the day. We had about 2 - 3 hours on a beautiful uninhabited island which allowed plenty of time for us to snorkel and enjoy a BBQ lunch. Unlimited beer, wine & soft drinks... More

Did the Whale Tales day trip to Schooner Island for the 3rd time on 17/6/15. The price has increased but the standards have dropped over the years. However, the crew who look after you throughout the day are great & work at making sure everyone is having a good time on board. I was still happy with the boat ride.... More

We took the Schooner Whale's Tales trip as part of our stay in Fiji and found the whole trip to be excellent. We were met at our hotel reception and transported to the port where we were greeted and escorted to the Schooner for our trip. Throughout the day we were constantly provided with drinks, food, and any assistance we... More
