“Mulla Mulla Magic”

Storck Cruises Day Cruise
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have just returned from a Fijian holiday that I was lucky enough to share with my wife and 22 family members. One of the highlights of our 2 week holiday was a day spent on Mulla Mulla Island, about 10kms out from Denarau Island. The day was booked by my sister through Storck Cruises and due to the size of our group the owner of the company, Max Storck, decided it would be a good opportunity to try Mulla Mulla Island instead of their usual destination. We were greeted at the jetty by Max and an assistant and ushered onto a fast jet boat for the trip to the island. We were originally told we would be taking a slower catamaran but Max arranged the jet boat to give us more time on the island. The trip out to Mulla Mulla went very quickly with drinks being offered by the very friendly crew as soon as we boarded. Excitement rose as the island came into view about 15 minutes from Denarau with everyone trying to get a look at the most beautiful island that lay in front of us. We dropped anchor about 100 mts from the beach and our gear was transferred into the outboard powered longboat that Max had driven over. We were then given the option of being taken over to the island in the longboat or swimming the 100 mts. We all jumped in and swam, arriving at the island like group of shipwrecked sailors. When we walked ashore we were greeted by a family of Fijians that had been on the island for 2 days preparing it for our visit. They had coconut drinks waiting for us and tables were laid out in preparation for our lunch. Mulla Mulla Island is 4 acres of tropical paradise, there is even a shipwreck which we named the SS Minow to add to the experience and we had it to ourselves for 6 hours. We walked around the island soaking in the beauty of the place then grabbed our snorkeling gear and re entered the water. The water was about 27 deg and crystal clear, very hard to take, and the fish and coral very colorful. Some harmless Reef Sharks were seen as well as some majestic Eagle Rays. After our snorkel we dried off and sat around with a drink while the Fijian Family and boat crew sang for us. The barbecue was fired up and in no time we were served a beautiful lunch with chicken, sausages and a variety of salads as well as fresh tropical fruits. Drinks were included in our fare and tea and coffee was available as well. After lunch it was back into the water to try our skill on the paddle board that Max had brought over for us, it was much harder than it looked but a couple mastered it quickly and it was a lot of fun trying. Afternoon tea consisted of a variety of tasty cakes then most were happy to just sit in the knee deep water sipping on a wine or the drink of their choice. All too soon it was time to return to the boat for the trip back to Denarau. The Fijian family returned in the boat with us as their work was done and everyone in the boat had a smile of contentment as we said goodbye to the lovely Mulla Mulla. The trip back to Denarau was a little bumpy as the afternoon sea breeze had picked up a bit and everyone had a laugh when some sea spray caught a couple unaware. Looking back at our day on the island there is not one thing that Max could have done to make our day more enjoyable. Thanks Max, if we ever visit Fiji again we will give you a call and do it all again.

Thank you to all the great staff on board Storck cruises, Paul for his wonderful tunes played on guitar, David for helping Amelia put on her goggles when they weren't comfortable, Mike who guided us around the coral reefs and made us feel safe and comfortable, and the Skipper Serev and Laki for helping me up onto the boat after swimming and snorkeling. The BBQ was delicious (chicken and sausage, potato salad, green salad, fruit platter) and in surreal setting....lots of shade to keep us from getting too sunburnt. Coconut story by Paul and weaving by Mike. Morning and afternoon tea and unlimited tea coffee soft drinks water and alcohol. Highly recommend this cruise as a great snorkeling experience...in the words of my 10 & 12 yr old daughters "best day we have ever had". No sea snakes or Sharks seen apart from the baby reef sharks fed by Mike which we watched from the shore.

A wonderful boat trip to the nearby island. Enjoyed a whole day of water activities, and a nice lunch. Drinks on board are free and the crew is so nice and helpful. Should go again.

A nice cruise, good snorkelling, excellent food, drinks included and great staff. We booked this at the last minute and it we are glad we did - it was an excellent day. We would have like to stay on the island a little longer but other than that we couldn't fault it. Compliments to the friendly staff.

This was an older vessel but quite comfortable for the cruise to an island for the day and added to the ambience of the day. Plenty of activity and some great singing by our hosts who were exceptional in providing a great day with their friendliness, joviality and conviviality. The BBQ was very nice on the island as was the cake and drinks. Just loved snorkelling around the island - very safe and well monitored by staff. The talk provided by staff on some of the cultural aspects of the Fijian life was absorbing. Everyone on board was happy and joined in the fun of the trip. Well worth doing and they cater for the young and older clients.
