Had a great day cruising with whalestale to Schooner Island. The guys were very fun but also professional and made sure everyone was having a great time. Was the perfect fiji experience sailing the clear blue seas, drinking beers while the staff played the guitar and sang. Would definitely recommend this day trip!

So first of, lets set expectations. Whales Tales is not at plush five star cruise ship, but it has plenty of character and it gets you to the island and back in reasonable comfort. Captain and crew are fantastic, you get a continental breakfast, lunch and plenty of beer, wine and soft drinks. On thr island you can snorkel, swim,... More

The crew are great and ensured everyone had an enjoyable trip. Make sure you do the motorised snorkel with Victor and Frank it was great fun and worth the extra fee. There are so many beautiful fish and corals to see. Lunch was delicious and the whole day was very well organsied.

We took a day trip on Whales Tales and it was just perfect. The crew sings and plays along with you and being on Fiji time, you get to have beer or drinks earlier. We spotted a whale and the captain turned the boat around so we could follow it a bit. On the island, the kids loved the snorkeling... More

Friendly and attentive staff, great authentic Fijian experience. Great old boat with lots of character. Everytime you think your drink maybe be getting empty you are offered another. Live music on the boat with the acoustic guitar and singing made the trip all that more relaxing. Although the reef was not as colourful as i expected there was an abundance... More

The wonderful friendly crew made the trip so memorable. Chatting, grabbing us beers, encouraging us to enjoy the fresh fruit and scones/ morning tea, so friendly and relaxed. We had a 100% calm day with beautiful sun and a slight breeze, couldn't have been better. The boat is quite old now but still in good condition with plenty of space,... More

Great time from start to finish. Crew is great and the venue beautiful. When you go you must do Power Snorkeling with Victor. It's a blast and you bring back memories that last forever.

Had so much fun on this excursion, it was the best 50th birthday ever. Free alcohol and enough food to feed an Army. Snorkeling, volleyball, kava ceremony, they made my husband chief. Everybody was having the times of their life. They gave me a gift from the captain for my birthday and baked me a cake and gave me a... More
