Despite this being our shortest discovery cruise, you’ll still come face to face with some of the most beautiful sights that the islands have to offer. Relax and and take in the breathtaking scenery while enjoying our fully catered buffet’s and 3-course meals, massage services, jacuzzi and cocktail bar, or get more active with some snorkelling, swimming in the pool, or try out our mini-gym.
On your first day, you’ll be sailing through the Mamanuca Island group passed many well known island resorts to Nuku-I-Mana cay, a famously beautiful location renowned for its brilliant seaside views.
You might see familiar sights on the second day as we head to Monuriki, the sheltered island location where the movie Castaway with Tom Hanks was filmed. Don’t worry if you’re not much of a film buff, Monu Island boasts an excellent kayak path, snorkelling spots teeming with ocean life and spectacular coral, and a deserted island feel. This evening we attend a village church service and the harmonies in the church choir will move you to tears.
On day three, we head off to the Sacred Island. Steeped in Fijian history and folklore, this is where you’ll partake in a Sevusevu gift giving ceremony before going off to explore the encompassed lagoons. Then, in the afternoon, you’ll head over to Waya, where you’ll visit the local village or climb the volcanic peak of the mountain.
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.

“ 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
