Thank you for your reply. i have called the Grace office in Taveuni but there is no phone connection, i will try Savsavu i have contacted the resort and the reply I get from all my questions is that yes there is a ferry leaving at 7am. After back and forth with emails i am still not sure if that means the bus leaves around 5am to meet the ferry -YIKES that it way too early, almost the middle of the night!
We leave Taveuni on a Friday, ( I think the ferry departs at 8.45am but still not sure of this either!) and return on a Monday. From my research the only ferry on Mondays is the Grace ferry from Buca bay. The MV Suiliven travels from Savusavu Tues, Thurs and sat at 6am. There are no flights on those dates for 8 people. We also thought it would an adventure to take the boat and bus. If someone could shed some more light on Ferry and bus times I would be so grateful.
