Needs recommendation for good Island Tour by boat/ship

We are staying at the Hideaway Resort in November and wanted to do a good Island Tour by Sail Boat etc. Any great recommendations would be appreciated.

The cruise on the "Seaspray" is an excellent day. Catch the boat from Port Denarau to Mana Island and then board the "Seaspray" which is a yacht built in 1928. You then sail to Monuriki Island for snorkelling and a barbecue lunch. Then cruise to a village for a Kava ceremony and return to Mana Island about 4.15 p.m. Go to www.ssc.fj for more information.

My husband and I have just returned from Fiji. (We loved it!!) The sailing day we had was on the schooner Whales Tale.$199.00(fijian) ( www.whalestale.com.fj). We had a ball. We found out about this tour thru another guest at our resort ( Naviti ). She has been coming to Fiji for 20 years and put us onto some great ideas.

Anyway coach picks up at resort takes you to the Port where you board the schooner that you spend the day on. No double transfer like Seaspray. The crew was fantastic. Drinks all day and lunch is included. Breakfast is served when you board but its only light. Once you get to the small Island, which is all yours for the day, snorkling,fishing, glass bottom boat, volleyball and massages just to name a few.Victor plays the guitar for entertainment and makes you all feel like one big family.

We did consider Seaspray but considering where we were staying the pick up was 6.00am and return was 8.30pm.Takes about 90 minutes to get to Port.

Whichever you choose you will have a great time.
