Oolala Cruises offer daily cruises to beautiful Savala Island. This day trip is a unique Fiji experience for discerning visitors who prefer a smaller vessel with friendly, professional staff and truly personalized service. The cruise departs at 10.00am from Port Denarau and returns to the Port at approximately 4.30pm. Your return hotel transfer is included. This award winning " Trip Advisor Cruise" is designed for travelers who "simply want the best", who respect our pristine environment and leave only their footprints on our island's beautiful white sandy beach, which is fringed with vibrant coral and crystal clear waters. Your day trip includes: • Morning and afternoon teas with home baked cakes. • Scrumptious BBQ lunch. • Complimentary drinks including beer, wines, soft drinks and bottled water. • Complimentary use of snorkeling gear, kayaks, stand up paddle boards. • Guided coral viewing tours. • Massage & scuba diving are available at extra cost. Oolala Cruises are available for private group charters; if you require your own exclusive boat and island for the day or perhaps a charter boat for sunset cocktail cruises.

My wife and I and another couple had an awesome day cruise. Paul and the crew on the boat were exceptionally friendly and entertaining and between the delicious barbecue lunch at Savala Island and chilled beers and wines the entire day (as well as snorkling and glass bottom boat tours, this represents great value for money. Just an awesome way... More

We had a great day out on this trip on Monday. We prebooked as there are 11 in our group. We all had a great time. The crew were fun and entertaining us with their songs on the boat, then at the island we could choose to just sit and do nothing and enjoy the view or to go on... More

Small group trip. Wonderful crew from guitars and singing on the way out to feeding baby sharks and fish. Pretty basic equipment and facilities but nice lunch and baking for morning and afternoon tea. Pretty stunning spot but could only swim for a short time due to tide. Only disappointing thing was when I made the booking which was very... More

Spent 7 nights in Fiji & the day trip to Savala Island was easily our favorite day. The highlight was the snorkeling as my 7 year old who isn't a confident swimmer, he was pointing out the fish & star fish in no time. The lunch was good, best potato salad you'll ever have. Highly recommend to anyone looking for... More

This day trip was amazing. From the very beginning the staff were great. They played guitar and sung on the boat ride and they even provided "table service" with delivering us drinks and snacks the whole day. It only took just over an hour on the boat, and the island itself is private and small and we had it to... More

Had done this trip before when there were no facilities on the Island and it was an overcast day. No shelter, nothing. After reading the reviews again I thought we would do this as a family now as the they had built toilets, provided a roofed shelter, loungers, kayaks, paddle boards etc etc. The cost was very expensive. I checked... More

Bula Sue, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. How wonderful that you were able to visit Savala Island for a second time and see all the improvements and additions to facilities for guests on the island. The cost for our day trip is the same cost as the other all-inclusive day tours from Port Denarau, and... More

The staff at Oolala is great. Everyone was really nice, friendly, and funny. I like the fact that your price includes food and alcoholic beverages. Several of the other companies charge you for beverages. The island is tiny with limited seating on the beach so if you want a sun chair and shade you better be on the first tinder... More

Really enjoyed our cruise.... exactly what we needed after two previous days of hardcore activity, our muscles were a tad sore! Nice trip out to the island. Island is small but very nice outlook and loved the wee umbrellas next to sunloungers. Cool swim in the ocean, good water depth to just sit back and relax or you can go... More

What a great day cruise to tiny Savala Island where you can snorkel, paddle board, go on a glass bottom boat, feed the fish or just relax sun bathing. The crew on this excursion are very fun and entertaining. They love to joke around, play the guitar and sing. So fun. Not the best snorkeling spot but sufficient as a... More
