Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Tivua Island is the perfect day-trip destination in Fiji. Encircled by white-sand beaches and surrounded by coral reef, the pristine tropical island functions as a sea turtle sanctuary during nesting season.

After hotel pickup, step aboard the Ra Marama, a brigantine (two-masted sailing ship) built in 1957 and named after a 19th-century war canoe. Enjoy Fijian music by the entertaining crew and watch for dolphins playing in the bow wave as you’re served morning tea aboard the tall ship.

Upon arrival at Tivua Island, take part in a yaqona (kava) welcome ceremony. You can decide how to while away the hours: swim in the azure sea, stroll around the island, or sunbathe on the sandy shoreline. If you're feeling energetic, a selection of activities such as snorkeling, beach volleyball, reef fishing, and use of kayak, stand-up paddleboard, or canoe is included. Or perhaps set out for some coral viewing on a glass-bottom boat tour.

Dig into a buffet luncheon including barbecue chicken, whole baked fish, sausages, fresh salads, fruit and fresh-baked bread rolls accompanied by local beer, wine and soft drinks. Enjoy afternoon tea before the return sail to your starting point, with drop-off at your hotel by day's end.

Quick, easy, nice getaway to the islands for the day

My partner and I wanted to get out and experience a bit of snorkelling and diving on the reef in Fiji, so after talking with a friend we went with Captain Cook

Awesome crew. Jay was outstanding for his skills. Scuba diving was worth for me as a first timer. The arrangements at the island were excellent.

Disappointing
Carl_B
, Jan 2022
The cruise, food and general infrastructure were good, but the real disappointment was the island itself. There was almost no live coral to speak of, and few fish. There was lots of dead coral, perhaps as a result of the last cyclone, but the island is unlikely to recover any time soon. On the island there were 2 canoes and 2 paddle boards and nowhere near enough flippers for 60 to 75 people. I could not recommend this activity.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
So sorry you feel like that Carl. Did you do the guided snorkelling with our marine biologist? There are areas that have been damaged by weather but, as other reviews will show, the coral is great in parts too. We have additional "toys" on order but supply is slow at the moment. We limit the snorkelling to 40 in the water at a time for safety. I will ensure all passengers are briefed accordingly so they know to return the equipment to be sanitised.

Beautiful island and friendly staff. Day went so fast! Small group with ample options for enjoying the day, including massages, kids club and glass bottomed boat. Easy waters to snorkel and fun to swim with the baby sharks! Lots of cabanas on the island and great variety of food available for lunch. Staff all friendly and kind to my children.

We had such a wonderful day. All the crew members were so welcoming and kind, the music they olayed and sung was beautiful. The island itself is something from a postcard, absolutelt stunning and you have a wide range of activities to choose from..or you can relax with complimantary beer/wine/soda under a little beach shade. We snorkelled with baby sharks, and kayaked around the island. The food was delicious with a great mix of foods. All in all, we had one of the best days ever. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to discover this beautoful slice of paradise. Thaaank you too all the crew on Captain Cook Cruises.
