About

A Remote Northern Islands Adventure

Join MV Reef Endeavour for a journey of discovery, as we cruise around the north of Yasawa and visit Pacific jewels like the famous Sawa-i-lau limestone cave and blue lagoon. This 4 night cruise is perfect for those who have limited time, but want a slightly longer break than 3 nights.

You’ll cruise to our privately owned Tivua island and spend time exploring the beaches and coral reef and if diving is your passion, there’s also a new wreck, Raiyawa to explore. You’ll see many beautiful beaches along the way including Drawaqa Bay and Yaqeta Beach and the pinnacle of our cruise is a visit to the world famous Sawa-i-lau aquamarine limestone lagoon, which featured in the 1980 movie ‘Blue Lagoon’.

There are 16 islands in the Yasawa island group, which stretches for a total distance of 90 kilometres and because they were formed by volcanic activity, they are more rugged than other Fijian islands and are renowned for their pristine natural beauty.

The Yasawa’s people are also unique and you’ll experience the best of Fijian culture on this cruise with a feast and cultural performance at Gunu, a visit to a school, village and shell market at Matacawalevu and a spot of crab racing at Sawa-I-Lau.

And after experiencing daily shore visits such as these, you’ll return to the luxury of MV Reef Endeavour, where you’ll enjoy all the amenities of a larger cruise liner including fully catered buffets and 3-course meals, massage services, cocktail bar, jacuzzi, gym and swimming pool.

Our 4 night Mamanuca & Northern Yasawa Islands small ship adventure is perfect for those with busy lives who still want enough time to escape and unwind. It’s ideal for singles, couples and families and cruises depart 12pm Tuesdays and return 9am Saturdays at Port Denarau Marina in Nadi.

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.
