If you’re ready for a slightly longer journey, our four-day trip around the north of Yasawa sports its own unique attractions and experiences. You’ll have access to the same facilities on-board as the three-day cruise, but we’ll be taking you on a magical journey across coral gardens and limestone paths instead.
On the Tuesday of departure, we’ll cruise to our privately-owned Tivua island, where you’ll spend some time exploring the beaches and coral reef (for anyone interested in a shorter tour, we also do one day cruises to Tivua). You also have the option of diving a new wreck, Raiyawa.
You’ll see many beautiful beaches in the northern Yasawa’s, including Drawaqa Bay on day 2, the Yasawa cave lagoons on day 3, and the luxuriant Yaqeta beach on the final day. Fijian culture hasn’t been forgotten with the cruise visiting Gunu for a feast and cultural performance, Matacawalevu for the shell market, school and village visit, Sawa-I-Lau for a spot of crab racing (as fun as it sounds!), and then we’ll be heading back past Tivua on the final night for another cultural performance from the crew.
You can adapt our discovery cruises to suit your holiday. We can collect, or drop you off, at many of the destinations that we cruise to. Give us a call us on 1300 TO FIJI (1300 86 3454) for more information.Check Availability & Book Online

“ This is our 12th cruise, mostly on large liners and to be honest this is the most fun we have ever had. The crew were fantastic and all the guests got to know one another. We love Fiji having visited many times and certainly hope to do another Captain Cook cruise.???Amelia Jane
