Know More about this tour

Cruise, swim, explore and relax.

Tivua Island is close enough to Nadi to be the perfect destination for an introduction to cruising the islands of Fiji. Set sail by tall ship to this pristine island, surrounded by 500 acres of spectacular coral reef. Tivua Island is a sanctuary for turtles during the nesting season, and is surrounded by a circle of white sandy beaches.

Sailing aboard the brigantine Ra Marama you will be able to sunbathe in the bowsprit, watch for dolphins playing in the bow wave and enjoy the music and entertainment as you cruise. This historic tall ship, named after a famous nineteenth century Fijian war canoe, was built for the Governor General of Fiji in 1957.

Upon arrival at Tivua Island, soak up the natural atmosphere where you can swim in the tropical waters, explore the island or simply relax on the pristine sandy beaches. If you're feeling energetic, a selection of water activities such as snorkeling or the use of canoes is included. You will also be able to indulge in a delicious buffet luncheon before the return sail to Nadi.

    The day cruise was ok, the sailing boat very old, and not very comfortable . the lunch very poor quality .

    It was light rain the whole day but I still had a wonderful day. Plenty to do and very enjoyable.The staff provided a lovely lunch and refreshments. The boat ride to and from the island was fun.

    This was such a lovely day trip to do. The boat we were on was very nice, we were greeted by a cold drink. All the staff were lovely. Had a cava ceremony which was fun! The island itself is beautiful! Did snorkeling and chilled in the water with some drinks. Water is crystal clear! Absolute bliss! Thanks so much for a great day out!

    The ship is like an old pirate ship which is pretty cool. You are greater on board with music and come fresh juice. Once we started heading out you are greater by the crew and they do their best to up sell you on anything possible. I get it... it’s a business.

    I went to the back of the boat to talk to the divers about the novice suba trip they tell you it’s some outrageous price but for TODAY ONLY they can do it for a cheaper price. I told them NO and they brought down the price even more. I told them no again and they lowered their price and told me that was the rock bottom price. I agreed we to do it as they hype it up saying that you get a certificate that’s says you can now scuba anywhere in the world and blah blah blah. I did the adventure and it was ok nothing special everything was brown and you really don’t see any colorful fish. It was disappointing and I NEVER GOT MY CERT. I would probably pass on this part of the trip.

    The island is small and when it’s low tide good luck trying to swim the water goes way down enough that you could probably walk 200-400 meters away from the island and still have water up to your ankles. Also when they call lunch you better be the first in-line the food will Run out. By the way the food is NOT good.

    Here is my last tip. Get all your water, beer, drinks on the island because on the way back they will charge you for everything.

    One hour motor on old sailing ship to private island. Great fun on boat to and from the island. On the island several options available - scuba, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boards. Good guides available. Lunch buffet was also very good.

    Captain cook cruise was very good the people were very friendly and helpful. Pickup went well drop was a little awkward thought it was a car for pickup. The problem they showed up on the wrong day which prevented me from doing the trip i wanted. Will never use Viator again as all trips were bad and they cannot get the dates correct.

    Beautiful island experience with many fun activities. I wish we could have stayed longer! They also had a scuba option for additional couple hundred USD. Bring a lot of water for the boat rides. Everything is free once you're on the island, but they charge on the boat, which is approx. 1.5 hours each way, and not very well shaded. Besides that, this tour is excellent and very worth the day and money. Chrystal clear water to snorkel in, and you'll see incredible fish and baby reef sharks! This was the highlight of our time in Fiji.

    I only booked this the evening before sailing. Within half an hour, I had my emailed voucher and a call from Captain Cook Cruises to confirm my booking and arrange pick up at my hotel. Off to a great start.. it only went Up from there. Our Guide Li was the best! Friendly, helpful and insightful as he guided us snorkeling, kayaking and even a cava ceremony on the boat. I would highly recommend this tour as it was one of the highlights of a three week trip south. Thanks Viator, for your quick, professional response to my last minute booking
