Itinerary

Day 1
Friday - Anchorage MODRIKI ISLAND

Friday - Anchorage MODRIKI ISLAND

Bula and welcome aboard Blue Lagoon Cruises! Set sail aboard Fiji Princess and enjoy afternoon tea as we head out from Denarau Marina for the outer Mamanucas. Our first destination is at the gorgeous, secluded Modriki Island. Have you seen the Tom Hanks' movie 'Cast Away'? Modriki is the very island that stars so well in this block-buster! Enroute to the famous little island, settle into your cabin, enjoy a welcome cruise briefing, meet fellow guests and admire the scenery that slides by as we cruise. Come early evening, as the skies turn dusky, cocktails are served with canapés on the sun deck. Mingle with fellow passengers and look out over the tranquil waters as the sun sets. Tonight is the Captain's Welcome Dinner, an a la carte menu served in the dining saloon. Entertainment is provided by our talented singing, dancing and guitar playing crew! Don’t forget to wander to the upper deck to see the magnificent array of stars in the night sky.

Day 2
Saturday - Anchorage SOSO BAY, NAVITI ISLAND

Saturday - Anchorage SOSO BAY, NAVITI ISLAND

There's time for an early morning snorkel, swim or wander along the stunning white sands at Modriki Island before we set sail for the southern Yasawa Islands. Late morning, we take you to a very special location, where the brave will get to swim with reef sharks! Of course they are only gentle reef sharks, but they still add excitement to your snorkelling adventure! Back on-board we cruise into the waters around Naviti and Soso Bay. Lunch is served on-board before heading ashore to visit the chiefly village of Soso. You’ll be welcomed in traditional fashion with a kava ceremony, followed by a village tour. Late afternoon there will be a presentation on the local history and legends. A sport fishing trip is also on offer at this location (additional cost). We also offer diving for both novices and experienced divers (additional cost). Back on Fiji Princess, ease into the evening with cocktails, an Indian 'Thali' buffet dinner and some  'Bollywood Dancing'.  

Day 3
Sunday - Anchorage between NAUKACUVU and NARARA ISLANDS

Sunday - Anchorage between NAUKACUVU and NARARA ISLANDS

Start Sunday, respected as a day of rest here, with a cup of coffee and tasty breakfast, get in first with an early morning swim, or simply sleep in! There is a special opportunity to attend a village church service, which you’ll find to be very moving. Experience the atmosphere, singing and unique culture of the wonderful Fijian people. Lunch is served on board as we cruise to our next slice of paradise. You can partake in a Fijian cooking lesson, or try your hand at traditional Fijian basket weaving. We'll anchor in the sheltered waters at Naukacuva and Narara Islands, which are covered in dense, vividly green forest, fringed by white sandy beaches. Sunbathe on Fiji Princess or dive into the waters and discover the amazing colourful underwater world below. Come evening take cocktails and canapés on the sun deck before tonight's Fijian and European buffet. Bingo - with some good prizes - is held in the dining room. Or head to the upper deck for a quiet drink.

Day 4
Monday - Anchorage in the lagoon of the SACRED ISLANDS

Monday - Anchorage in the lagoon of the SACRED ISLANDS

Care to help catch dinner? An early morning fishing trip is on offer with the crew. An a la carte breakfast, cooked to your liking along with the buffet of fresh tropical fruits, yogurts, cereals, fruit juices, tea and coffee is the perfect way to fuel your day! There will be time for a snorkel, swim or kayak before we depart Naukacuva and cruise to one of the most beautiful and remote island groups seen on your cruise, the Sacred Islands. The Sacred Islands provide a breathtaking backdrop and the rest of your day is spent here enjoying these idyllic tropical islands and feeling very special because we are the only ones there! Head ashore to a deserted beach with crew and a picnic lunch. It’s up to you how you want to spend your time; enjoy a swim, wander the beaches, kayak in the lagoon and enjoy the feeling of just being in this beautiful part of the world! This afternoon, learn the art of Fiji High Tea. Back on-board it's happy hour at the bar, with an a la carte dinner to follow.

Day 5
Tuesday - Anchorage NANUYA LAILAI, THE BLUE LAGOON

Tuesday - Anchorage NANUYA LAILAI, THE BLUE LAGOON

Laze on the sun deck as we cruise past several of the larger Yasawa Islands and beautiful bays. Our destination today is the famed Blue Lagoon. This superb stretch of water is circled by islands, creating a lagoon that is filled with fascinating coral reefs easily seen from the surface of the crystal clear waters. One of those islands, Nanuya Lailai, is home to Blue Lagoon Cruises very own private beach. Lunch is served on-board, whilst on shore our private 'Fiji style beach club' awaits, along with sun loungers, onshore massage, a bar and beach volleyball. You’ll have plenty of time for swimming, snorkelling, fish feeding, viewing coral from the glass bottom boat or just wandering along to a secluded stretch of beach. We’ll even give a coconut demonstration. Diving for both novices and experienced divers can be pre-booked (extra cost). We also offer a number of guided ‘reef safari’ (snorkelling tours). Happy hour happens on shore before your traditional Lovo meal.   

Day 6
Wednesday - Anchorage just off TAMUSUA BAY, YASAWA ISLAND

Wednesday - Anchorage just off TAMUSUA BAY, YASAWA ISLAND

Dive off the boat, head ashore to the beach or paddle a kayak in the surrounding tranquil waters. Sit down to an a la carte breakfast, cooked to your liking. Most of the day is at leisure here at our private beach. Laze around or take part in any of some great Fijian activities. An easy guided walk along the beach and up over the hill to the other side of the island is offered this morning. The views out across the Blue Lagoon, and Lo's famous cakes, make it well worthwhile. Try basket weaving, wood carving, diving or snorkelling. A delicious buffet lunch is served in the dining bure on shore before it’s back on-board. Fiji Princess heads North to the mystical island of Sawa i Lau. Afternoon tea is served on-board as we cruise. On arrival we set off on a private guided visit to the Sawa i Lau caves. A short swim through an underwater passage takes you into the second of these stunning limestone caves. This evening includes a special visit to the village of Tamusua.     

Day 7
Thursday - Anchorage DRAWAQA ISLAND

Thursday - Anchorage DRAWAQA ISLAND

Fiji Princess heads on out of the bay bound for Drawaqa Island. At your leisure enjoy a la carte breakfast, cooked to your liking. On arrival at Drawaqa, our Marine Biologist will tell you all about the local fish, marine life and the conservation work the Vinaka Fiji Volunteer team are doing in this area. If you are here during May to October you'll be introduced to the magnificent manta rays, whose feeding ground is just nearby. From October to April you can take a guided 'Reef Safari' to see the prolific corals, clams and marine life in this area. This could be the place to book your very first scuba dive. Certified divers are well catered for as well! (Diving is an additional cost). Or why not visit a local village school where Vinaka Fiji volunteers are at work? Or, for a truly exhilarating view, from the island cliff top to the stunning waters below, have a go at abseiling! Dinner this evening is a barbecue served on the upper deck, with the soundtrack provided by DJ 'Fiji Afro Jack'.

Day 8

An early start for the crew as unfortunately it is time to cruise for home and return to Denarau Marina.
