Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

This activity will end right where it started.Our pickup service starts at 8am near Nadi Airport and 9am from Denarau resorts for the 10am departure and 9.30am and 10.30am for the 11am departure.

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.

The crew and staff were very warm and caring. Tivua is a beautiful getaway and the sea and the views are stunning of the nearby Mamanuca Islands. The ship ride back to port was filled with guitar play and singing from the staff. Excellent. Highly recommended.

The crew were lovely the lunch very generous and the island was magical. Being on a schooner in the open air was so much better than the big launches

A good snorkeling place

It was a great trip, but too short ... it would be nicer if the starting time can be a little earlier so we could spend more time on the private island. The food is not up to the standard. Overall, the experience was great!
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thanks for letting us know. As the experience is already 7 hours we feel this is about the right length for the day. We normally receive great reviews for food so it would be great to hear exactly what you found inadequate so we can review

Beyond Expectation!!!

The experience was beyond expectation! From the hospitality of the staff to the beauty of the island, there was nothing I could fault. I loved going snorkelling and coming back to a beautiful meal prepared for us all. There were so many activities to do on the island too and so many lovely locals. My favourite was Chris who climbed a tree to get me a coconut. It was delicious! I could go on and on, so to summarise it was an amazing experience. I would definitely come back!

Tour guide, Li was amazing! Food was great and fresh. Only complaint is that drinks on the boat are not included.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Bula James, thanks for the feedback. We do include morning and afternoon tea on the boat but we have a responsible approach to alcohol service and like to limit it to the island only for that reason. Our drinks are still available for purchase on the return sail.

Fantastic experience from start to finish

The island was absolutely beautiful. The whole boat trip the staff were absolutely amazing with the kids. They showed them around the boat and were happy to help with anything. The kids had a ball snorkeling in the crystal clear water. The kids cabanas were perfect for our little ones to play in the shade. The lunch was a great mixture of foods and was delicious. The best part of the the day was the amazing views and experience followed closely by the staff and their friendly nature
