Our tour started with a great big Bula! The staff were amazing from start to finish. Great entertainment with Guitar playing and singing on our way to the island. Heaps of FREE things to do on the Island. Great food and FREE drinks the whole time your there. Shark feeding, glass bottom boat, Canoes, etc. We'll worth the money spent. Great entertainment on the boat coming home. You do not want to come to Fiji and not do this tour. Vinaka Storck Cruises.

I really enjoyed this busy day. A smaller boat, with organised, personal service. Everything was laid on. Morning and afternoon tea on the boat, BBQ lunch on the island. A massage is an optional extra. If you are a good swimmer, you can chose to snorkel a short distance from the boat to the island. Gear is provided. The guides were safety conscious and kept a close eye by surrounding the swimmers.
There are no bathroom facilities on the small island as yet, but as funds permit, I expect this to be available in the future, A few hours free time on the island gives you the opportunity for more snorkelling and swimming, just chilling, or taking a "feed the fish" trip in a glass bottom boat.

After my initial booking for an island day cruise was cancelled by the sailing company, the tour desk at my hotel recommended this cruise. I was a little worried as it was an all drinks included day and I'd read a few bad tales of boats full of drunk tourists (not the best activity when travelling with my senior parents!) but it turned out to be a fabulous day. Somehow we lucked getting put on the 'Oolulu' catamaran rather than the Oolala boat, which takes less people and is a quicker trip, and also has the 'trampoline' nets on front you can sit on and enjoy the breeze. Great service on board with cake for morning tea as soon as you board. The little island itself was just beautiful, with a large shelter shed in the middle and small thatched umbrellas all around. We got on the glass bottom boat to go feed the enthusiastic fish before bbq lunch at the island and a coconut husking/palm frond weaving demonstration. Activities on the island included diving, snorkeling, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and there were massages for $60 FJD. People were snorkeling with life jackets on or wrapped in pool noodles, so if you are not the strongest swimmer you could still give it a go! Mid afternoon and it was time to leave, with more cake on the boat for afternoon tea and the crew singing and playing guitar. A great day out and would highly recommend it. The only point I would make is that there are no toilets on the island so you need a crew member to take you back to the boat if you need to go, not a problem for us but perhaps a consideration when travelling with children.

My girl and I have been to three day trips for outer islands in FiJi. Oolala is the best one. 150 meters snorkeling from boat to the island. shack feeding, fish feeding, kayaking, diving from top of the boat, good service for free beer and wine, wonderful performance on the boat and island.
But departure at 10am and back at 4:30pm, little bit short.

Plenty of things to do on the tiny island - paddle boards . Kayaks, Snorkelling , glass bottom boat .
4 hours or so on the island and thankfully plenty of shade.
