    FAQs

  • Where is Tivua Island?

    Tivua Island is Captain Cook Cruises’ private island situated in the Mamanuca island group. It is approximately 90 minutes cruising time from Fiji’s premier marina, Port Denarau, which is just 10 minutes from Nadi and 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport by car.

    The island is surrounded by a white sandy beach and 500 acres of beautiful coral gardens and provides an idyllic location where visitors can enjoy a variety of activities. These include paddle boarding, glass-bottom boat tours and snorkelling straight off the beach. Tivua Island welcomes visitors on our day trips and small ship cruises and for special occasions such as weddings and corporate events.

  • Are there any optional extras?

    Beyond the big range of activities included in your day cruise, we also offer some optional extras at an additional cost. These include scuba diving under the guidance of five-star PADI professionals, with the opportunity to explore stunning coral reefs and even a shipwreck.

    You can also take advantage of the massage services offered by the Senakai Day Spa. And if you’re a honeymooning couple, newlyweds or family wanting a place to relax, the island also boasts two private waterfront bures with ensuite available for day hire during your visit.

    All drinks are included on the island however only tea and coffee are complimentary on the yacht, although other drinks are available for purchase.

    Optional extras on the dinner cruise include the opportunity to upgrade your dinner to include a full lobster (pre-booking required).

  • How many passengers are onboard day cruises and are they suitable for kids?

    Tivua Island day cruises and Sunset Dinner cruises have a capacity of 100 people per vessel and 200 guests on the island itself. Our Tivua Island Day Cruise and Sunset Dinner Cruise are suitable for all ages. In fact, we offer child rates for 3-15 year olds and kids under 3 can come along for free.

    Children must be under the supervision of an adult at all times and must be able to swim unaided. Parents must provide floatation devices for infants under 5 on the Tivua Day and Sunset Dinner cruise. We have a Captain’s Kids Club on Tivua Island during the day cruise for children aged 5 to 12 years.

    Reef Endeavour Small Ship Cruises have a capacity of 130 passengers and offer child rates for 5-17 year olds only (no children under 5 years permitted). There is also a great kids club for those aged 5- 9 years.

  • What is included in a day cruise?

    There are a big range of outdoor activities available to our visitors on Tivua Island including guided snorkelling straight off the beach or from the pontoon and guided glass bottom boat tours with our marine biologist, use of canoes and stand up paddle boards, beach volleyball, beach walks, seasonal bird and turtle viewing and Fijian cultural experiences.

    Our Tivua Island Day Cruise also includes a tropical buffet meal prepared with fresh local ingredients and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks on the island. We also offer a traditional Kava ceremony and walk through the island and craft demonstration on the return leg. Optional extras include beach massages and scuba diving for all experience levels with professional PADI instructors.

  • What are the key differences between a day cruise and a dinner cruise?

    Whether you choose a day cruise or a dinner cruise will depend on the type of experience you are looking for. Our day cruise to Tivua Island features lots of water based activities and Fijian family fun in the sun, while our dinner cruise is more laid back and romantic, taking in the magnificent sunsets the Mamanuca Islands are famous for.

    Both tours include a buffet meal prepared with fresh local ingredients and traditional Fijian hospitality, but while children are welcome on the dinner cruise, there are no kids activities provided, unlike the day cruise, where they have access to the Captain’s Kids Club on Tivua Island.
