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.

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!
