If you want to experience the real Fiji, join us on MV Reef Endeavour as we explore the Lau Islands and Kadavu; a beautiful and remote region rarely seen by tourists. A visit to this region offers a once in a lifetime experience to a select few travellers, visiting turquoise bays and remote villages where they only see a supply boat once a month.Cruise highlights include a swim at a waterfall, exploring old ruins, snorkelling untouched reefs and getting up close with nesting turtles. You’ll also explore the caves, reefs and lagoons of Qilaqila renowned for its mushroom-shaped islands, and the central lake on uninhabited Vuaqava island where you’ll find turtles, snakes and amazing bird life. Best of all, you’ll be welcomed and entertained by the friendly people of this region and experience a traditional Meke, Sevusevu and lovo quite different from the traditional Fijian feast.

Yasawa Islands 7 night Cruise FAQS
Best day cruise trip ever, great value for money. Will definitely go with them the next time, for other trips and the sunset dinner cruise.
Loved it for the below reasons!
1. Professional mgmt - warm and responsive.
2. Super friendly and helpful staff.
3. Amazing food.
Higher quality than 5-star hotel and way exceeding expectations.
Just got back from the above trip and I HIGHLY recommend it! The energy and amazing vibes we got from the crew members made our experience 1000x more enjoyable.
The food was so delicious and the quantity surprisingly good. They kept feeding us throughout the trip so one can imagine the extra workouts we will need to pull (worth it)
Activities were well planned out and there was no rush or fuss. They left it on us to do as we please. They truly love their locals and I wouldn’t mind going again.
Huge appreciation to the crew members of CCC Fiji!
