Water Taxis from Denarau to Mana Island

I am trying to find the cheapest way to get from Denarau to Mana Island to stay for a week for two adults. So far my options seem to be the equivalent of three nights accommodation, is this what I have to pay?

If you are looking at getting a water taxi, yes it will be expensive.

South Sea Cruises runs daily transfers to Mana. Here is there website.

It is $65AUD one way for an adult or $78AUD if you want to travel in the Captains Lounge.

Nola ;)

We are travelling in september and only have 2 hours in between flight arrival and catching the boat. It is the last boat of the day. Is it possible to get a water taxi at the last minute if this happens. I know it would probably be costly but at least you would get to the island.

Hi Robyn, provided your flight is on time 2 hours would be ample to go through immigration, customs and then catch a taxi to Denarau to catch the boat. The taxi ride is about 25 minutes.

Sorry George, there are no longer any flights to Mana unless you want to hire a helicopter which is very expensive.

yes I am just concerned if the flight is late have done it all before when we went to plantation island but got in at 6 am and got threw customs etc so easy had plenty of time, but every flight we seem to catch of late gets delayed and just was wondering if the water taxis are easily assesible from the port at that time of night if not pre booked. Hope that makes sense.

SeaFiji operate a 24 hour water taxi service from Port Denarau. The cost of a one way trip to Mana for up to 4 persons is $F659.00 Log on to www.seafiji.net for more information. You might e-mail them to ascertain whether a water taxi would be readily available should you miss the boat.

Robyn, the last boat to Mana from Denarau is at 5.30p.m. This has only been going for a short time and your travel agent might not be aware of it.

Yes thats the one we are catching. We get into Nadi at 3.10 so if all is on time we should be ok.

Hi . Sea fiji are very efficient. They run 24 hours. Your solution is simple. If your plane not delayed you will easily get on the ferry. If it is delayed simply phone or email sea fiji from the home airport. the phone call is cheap. Arrange a time for them to take you to mana that night. You may have to wait an hour or so if they have a conflicting booking ta the same time but you can hang out at denarau and have dinner etc.

Easy
