DISCOVER A FIJI RARELY SEEN BY TOURISTS

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.

Restaurant About - Hotel Webflow Template

The Lau Island Group consists of 57 islets, of which only 30 are inhabited and if you enjoy getting off the beaten track these islands are for you, with no public transport or restaurants to be found. The Kadavu Group is made up of four main islands, of which Kadavu is the largest. It is home to the Great Astrolabe Reef, one of the world’s largest barrier reefs and a renowned site for premier diving. Most days offer the opportunity to snorkel, swim and scuba dive the pristine waters of these beautiful islands and when you’re not experiencing all that they have to offer, you’ll enjoy the relaxing hospitality aboard the MV Reef Endeavour. Here you’ll be pampered with most of the luxuries found on larger cruise liners including fully catered buffet and 3-course meals prepared fresh daily onboard, a freshwater swimming pool, jacuzzi, day spa, cocktail bar and much more.

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!
