We had a most memorable day. Starting with breakfast delicious lunch and a surprising afternoon tea also. The water was so clear and slowly cruising across being entertained with a sing along with the staff. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

This trip was worth the money because the experience of interacting with the locals was wonderful. They did everything possible to make us comfortable and to make sure we had an enjoyable time. My only disappointment was the snorkeling experience. You had to sit in the water to put on the fins, then swim out to the deeper waters. I was struggling with a bad leg and could not attempt it. Had we been able to go in and out of the water off the boat, I could have participated.
Just do it!

From the pick up to drop off the trip was easy, smooth and so much fun!! The crew were fantastic welcoming, friendly and fantastic guitarists and singers too. Once we arrived at the Island we had a snrokle and fed the fish on the glass bottom boat. The lunch was delicious and lots to choose from and true to their word the drinks flowed all day right from the champagne breakfast to a beer at the dock. Highlight was definitely the volleyball game! There was a lot of jokes and laughter. The fiji crew abosultley smashed everyone else haha Value for money +++++ A must do!

Friendly staff, ample food and drinks. Guitarists entertained us on the way out and back and we sang along with them or sat upstairs and relaxed.
It Was Amazing!
, Mar 2020
Completely worth it! They promptly picked us up from our hotel and took us to the Denarau Island. After we met a few others on the boat, we ate breakfast and set sail. It was so beautiful and the crew gave us some local music, singing, and history of the area. Schooner Island was awesome! We went ahead and paid a little extra to do the power snorkeling and it was well worth it! There is regular snorkeling, too, and a boat with a glass window to see fish and coral below. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Whale’s Tale - Excellent
, Feb 2020
The day cruise was all around excellent - great ship, fun crew, free flow drinks as promised, good food and beautiful island destination! Highly recommended for a great day out!
Awesome boat/snorkeling experience!
, Feb 2020
This tour was awesome! The crew was great! We started with a continental breakfast with multiple refills of champagne/mimosas... Music from the crew on the way out/and especially back, was just great. When we got to our 'deserted' island...the snorkeling commenced....are you kidding me? Like swimming in an aquarium! Lunch was also excellent.... with a salad and fish, steak, and grilled chicken...basically all you could eat. The trip back was awesome....with the beer and wine free-flowing....and music, we were quite the merry group returning! Well worth the price! Highly recommended!

Great time. Friendly and accommodating staff. Dinner was amazing. Picked up and dropped off as arranged. Max gave one of our group a personal snorkelling experience and stayed with her the whole time.
Snorkeling with Whales Tale
, Feb 2020
This was a great snorkeling tour. We went out to a far island and the guides took us out to snorkel. They were very helpful and anxious to make sure we saw as much as possible. The boat trip also included lunch and drinks. All in all, a good day!
Lots of fun.

Fantastic day out visiting a beautiful secluded island - snorkeling, glass bottom boat, lunch on the island, breakfast and afternoon tea on the boat, alcohol included (beer, champagne, wine) The crew were very friendly, inclusive and helpful often bringing out instruments and either serenading the visitors or having a sing along. Lots of fun for couples and families
Snorkelling day tour
, Dec 2019
Lovely trip, the staff were all so friendly and accomodating. The guide who took us us snorkelling was brilliant, he was great, took me out as I was a little nervous making me feel reassured. Also took my partner out a second time as we did not get slot of video footage the first time.
Plenty of food, fish and fun

Wonderful private island. Time to snorkel and enjoy the beautiful island. Delightful barbecue lunch.
Great Day!
, Aug 2019
We really enjoyed our day out with this crew. The boat was fantastic, kinda reminded me of a pirate ship. The Island itself I would give only a 3 out of 5 due to the condition of the Island, it seemed a bit unkept and full of coral which made walking along the edge hard on the feet as well as debris throughout the island. The staff was really excellent and we enjoyed the singing both on the ship and at the island. The lunch was okay and they did run out of salad by the time it was our turn in line to get food! I am however giving this cruise a 5/5 because of the hospitality the crew gave to us! Thank you!

Our full day cruise was amazing!! We started off with breakfast and mimosas. Than unlimited beer and lunch on a private island. The snorkeling was certainly fun, though we didn't utilize they had kayaks available. The staff was the best! Two of them even played some guitar during the boat ride, got the whole group singing. Top notch excursion!
