What to expect
Enhance your Fiji vacation on a day trip to Mana Island, where you’ll have plenty of time to relax on the sugar-white sands, swim in turquoise waters, and take advantage of full amenities at the Mana Island Resort. Board your high-speed luxury catamaran from Treasure Island, Beachcomber Island, or the Denarau Marina (transfers to Denarau are available from Nadi), and meander through the stunning Mamanuca Islands en route to your destination. Your vessel delivers you to a secluded beach in this hidden paradise, where you’ll have plenty of time to spend at your leisure. Find a spot by the pool or under a shady palm, or purchase an umbrella drink (own expense) at the bar or lounge. Swim in the pristine lagoon or use provided snorkel gear to check out the fish and other marine life in the reef. An array of water activities are on offer at an additional cost, including jet skiing, waterskiing, parasailing, wakeboarding, and banana rides. If you venture on a Subsea adventure in a semi-submersible, you’ll find fascinating coral gardens from the vantage point of this unique vessel (own expense). At lunchtime, you’re served a scrumptious barbecue. When your day at Mana Island comes to an end, meet your tour escort and return to your starting point via catamaran.

Definitely recommend Full Day
Oct 2019 • Family
We did the Mana Island Half Day tour (9-3pm), however I would not recommend it. It takes 1hr 30mins to get there, so takes up most of your time. Felt like we just got there, had orientation tour, 30 mins snorkeling then lunch and had to board boat transfer back for another 1hr 30mins.
Very rushed and wished we had whole day there to enjoy the fantastic island.

Worst tour ever
Sep 2018 • Couples
You can be sure that you will through away your money. I took the half day tour, the food at the buffet was terrible bad and the restaurant is dirty and full of flies, the resort is old and in very bad condition, two good things are that personal is nice and the sand is white, but the rest is bad. Beach is full of plants and the water is not clear. Not worth it

Rubbish Tour
Feb 2018 • Family
One of the worst tours ever. Pickup and the ship transport was fine and normal. Once we reached Mana island resort, everything went downhill.

The lunch buffet was poor, stale and really barely edible.

The snorkelling, supposedly the highlight, was the worst ever. The beach where you are supposed to snorkel in has a like almost 100m of shallow rocks, and it's extremely shallow, like 5cm from your body in a snorkelling position. With the waves and everything it is almost impossible to snorkel and you will get scratched non-stop by the rocks. With your fins and the extremely uneven surface you can't walk either. There wasn't much to see too, even after getting out 100m to the slightly deeper waters. Snorkelling equipment was also poorly maintained. Halfway through the hotel turned off the water supply and there was no toilet everywhere, the public showers, toilet, everywhere was out of water. And no staff could be bothered guests enquiries. For a 5-star resort with room rates going at $450 per night, the state of their facilities is truly appalling.

The guide who was supposed to bring us around was unmotivated, doesn't care about anything at all, and just wanted everything for her own convenience at the inconvenience of all passengers. The ship was supposed to arrive at 4.45pm for the return journey, and at 3.30pm the guide already rounded everyone up and said it was time to go. We reached the jetty at 3.45pm and she brought everyone to a sweltering shed 50m outside the lobby that was closer to the jetty and got everyone to sit there. Guests were saying its hot here and we could sit at the lobby where there are fans and she just plainly rejected their suggestion and said 'please wait here, ship is coming'. And then she promptly retreated to the lobby herself to en joy the cool shade and fans, making everyone wait almost an hour until the ship arrived at 4.45pm. Zero professionalism.Complete waste of time for the tour and not even cheap at all at almost US$100 per person.

Don't ever book with them.

Great Time

We had a great time on our day trip to Mana. The island was beautiful with nice white sandy beach & crystal clear water. Snorkelling was awesome and the food was lovely. Highly recommended this tour.
