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

We have done this tour twice now, last time taking my parents (in theirs 60s) and my little girl (3) and it really was an all ages tour. Great day out by all.

The day tour to Schooner Island was suggested by our hotel. On time, friendly crew and we'll organised all day. We had a gorgeous hour and forty minute sail up the coast to 'our' island. Breakfast, Champagne and the crew entertaining us with songs! The uninhabited island is beautiful... Set up with huts for cover from the sun, an are... More

Great cruise with great friendly crew who makes sure you have everything you need. Plenty of food and drinks included in the price and you can even rent a GoPro for the day for snorkelling. The island was small and inhabitated with clear water. For experienced snorkellers, you may be a bit disappointed as most of the corals by the... More

Although the weather on the day we went out was not great, the cruise was delightful with the crew brought out their guitars and we were singing our way to the island. Once at the island the boat dropped of the ones that went to shore to explore and relax while it took the more adventurous travellers out to snorkel.... More

Bula Shinynbright, Thank you for your review, it must be one of those days that the sun is not our side, and I do agree with you that our crew just lights up that moment which forgets the unfavorable weather and just makes you feel at home. Thank you once again for your wonderful review and we do hope to... More

highly recommend this trip. The staff were great, very entertaining, free booze for the whole trip, great little island with no one living on the island it was so secluded. Volleyball, snorkelling, massage, weaving, diving, breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea and fun friendly Fijian people entertaining us the whole way. Vinaka!!!!
