A beautiful afternoon, warm water, as we skimmed along the Coast of Ono Island, Fiji To see an amazing mixture of rain forest and pine trees on land, then to focus on the fish swimming just below me. A great adventure!

So glad you had a great time. The day was perfect. You mentioned the water being so clear you could see the corals and fish as you paddled. This is one of the many things I love about Kadavu, Fiji. Hope you see you again.

It was just incredible.  As beginners, we were sort of nervous about going on outriggers for the first time.  But, as my dad said, we will never go back to kayaks again!  The guide showed us how it all worked and our group met and...More

We are so happy that you had such a good time. We really enjoyed your family and everyone was doing a wonderful job of paddling for the first time. We agree with your dad, as we prefer outriggers too. Hope to see you all again.

Astrolabe Reef Outrigger Adventures uses so called outriger canoes made from glass fiber, which are well maintained. The canoes are relative fast, however they have no place to deposit material, resulting in the necessity of a guide boat, which I felt as annoying because of...More

This paddling adventure was simply the best. From amazing fast downwind runs on beautiful blue, green Fijian water to delicious catered lunches on deserted white sandy beaches. Tom made sure this trip was spectacular and memorable. We paddled in so many different conditions and locations...More

Well organized, good food, good canoes, fantastic scenery. They specialize in setting it up so you always paddle with the wind at your back, which is a huge help. The trip through the mangroves, the village visits - it was all good. It's not easy...More
