Sometimes it's weird that people complain about the weather and rate the event or place to terrible or poor. The event is great, staff is excellent, they made happy birthdays and happy honeymoons cakes for us and other people who came to celebrate on the island. Snorkeling was awesome, kayaking and bbq are great! The view from the island is... More

An older boat that might leave you wishing you had picked another trip when you first get to Denarau, but give it 5 minutes and a bulla from the crew and you will be feeling like there is no other place to be in no time!

From arriving to departing the day was filled with entertainment, good food and drinks, all while sailing through blue waters past tropical islands on a very comfortable 100ft yacht.
