“Oh la laa - What a day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Fantastic day! Definitely recommend and worth every penny! The crew is brilliant and they take such a good care of you during the whole day. They really make the day! Delicious food and great variety of beverages - lunch on the island, morning- and afternoon tea with yummy little treats on the boat and so on. Great entertainment available throughout the day-snorkling, swimming in the crystal clear waters, kayaking, sunbathing on white sandy beach, glass bottom boat to checkout the coral reefs and fish, massages, singasongs on the boat along the way and so much more. Good fun!! You don't want to miss this...

“Awesome cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

The cruise to Olala zavala is by far the best I've been on in Denarau, they really do look after you well from the time you board till the time you disembark. The family had such a fabulous day there with white sandy beach and clear waters. It is one cruise you must go on.

“amazing day out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Such a great day! From the minute you board the oolala you are greeted with the warmth and hospitality of the beautiful Fijian people. The crew really make the day,Once at Savala we settled under our umbrellas and beanbags taking in the beautiful surroundings of the south pacific. Guided snorkelling was available as well as canoes, stand up paddle boarding, fish feeding, glass bottom boats and massages. We even went swimming with the sharks! (Baby ones!) The food was basic but delicious and the fiji bitter was flowing! Loved the singing on way back to marina everything from land down under to sweet caroline topped off with a bit of gangnam style! Highly recommend this tour....we will definitely do it again!!

“Vinaka !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

We had such a fabulous day on this trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Fiji.

To be honest, since the cyclone in 2012 the reef is severely damaged and the snorkelling is less than impressive. However, don't let this deter you from the many other great things about this day trip.

The things that really made our day were :

- beautiful scenery on the 1.5 hour boat trip to the island
- amazing pristine water, fish and reef shark sightings
- serenaded by the crew the entire trip, creating a relaxed and happy atmosphere
- very tasty, fresh lunch! Plenty of food to go around… we enjoyed the lunch here better than the food at the Sofitel where we were staying
- free drinks, soft drink and alcohol the entire day
- friendly and sociable staff
- demonstration on the 101 uses of a coconut tree
- kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, scuba diving and glass bottom boat activities
- relatively new boat, smooth ride, hygienic food preparation

If you are staying in Denarau, you aren't really getting a true taste of Fiji unless you get out and experience the islands. This trip is a perfect taste of what the island culture has to offer. It is also great if you have kids as the staff ensure they are entertained and have a fun time.

Thank you so much to the crew who really made our day so special and created lasting memories of a wonderful time in Fiji. In particular David, Paul and Lee were wonderful.

“A great day that cannot be faulted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Loved the whole experience, from the friendly staff, the morning tea, the snorkelling that was teaming with marine life (the first time my girls, 7 and 9 ) have snorkelled, to the beautiful BBQ lunch, the scrumptuous afternoon tea, free drinks all day and a merry sing along to finish.
Just over an hour on the boat in which we meet lots of lovely fellow tourists.
thank you Paul for youir attendive care with our apprehensive daughter, and delivering the basket- made the girls day even more special.
