In addition to Fiji’s larger islands, there are lots of smaller, pristine islands worth visiting. Beat the crowds and go on a day trip by boat to Tivua Island. This tiny island is surrounded by a coral reef, so you won’t have to spend hours researching the best snorkeling spots.

Expected more! Ship is old but still ok. Crew is nice and helpful. Food is weak - just fastfood standard and low quality. One evening the dinner to nearly 3 hours and not dinks have been provided properly. Nearly all visited beaches are dirty - plastic waste everywhere -. A lot of activities are not taking place - without any excuse. Ship was not really cruising - some sailing during night and ancoring most of the time. How knows a really cruise should avoid. Worst was that a lot of peope got Covid possitive direct after the cruise and they have not even informed the other guests to warn them. Coffee corner with cleaning of the cups just with cold water - in Corona times a no go. Sanitizer most empty or just not available.

So sorry your experience wasn't as expected. Our CEO has been aboard and all is now working as it should. There are plenty of supplies, the service is improved and procedures reviewed. There are some village activities that couldn't occur due to the virus, we have improved communication now. We have an Ocean Ambassador program that collects plastic from the beaches we visit. You must have been aboard for one of the first departures since the borders reopened. We are catching up. The focus of our experiences is to visit a new beach, island or reef morning and afternoon. Sailing is done over mealtimes or at night to enable maximum time ashore.

We had a beautiful experience, and would not hesitate to recommend this as a fabulous family day out while visiting Fiji. Thank you to the team at CaptainCook Cruises for looking after us so well and for such a great day! The cruise team are super helpful and keen to please. They set the tone for the day with a happy and cheerful manor, and they provided some great entertainment with their guitars and singing for the trip out to the island. Loved how they included the kids as part of their entertainment as well. These will be special unforgettable moments for them! Shout out especially to the dive crew on board. My daughters and I were keen to drive the Raiyawa wreck. Initially they advised that this would be difficult as the morning had been either stolen or lost, and finding the wreck would not be easy and we could lose a lot of time searching for it. After some other divers on board also expressed an interest in diving the wreck they decided they would do what they could for us to make it happen. The crew took care of loading all our gear some expert navigation put us roughly in place where Joe, their legend dive master jumped in and searched for a good half an hour in deep water on his own to locate the wreck for us so we could dive it. He did it! and thus we got to dive the Raiyawa wreck! It was spectacular and well worth the effort! We were honestly so lucky we got to dive the wreck. It was my daughters first time on a wreck dive which made it an extra special visit for us. Thanks so much for going above and beyond for us to make that dive possible! We really appreciate what you guys did for us! Back on shore, because we took quite some time to find the wreck we were quite late back to shore for lunch. The dive crew again took complete care of us, unloading all our gear from the boat so we could hurry back to go and get some lunch. The kitchen staff had put together meals and kept them aside for us, so we wouldn’t miss out. Thank you for looking after us so well! Other than the dive, we didn’t get heaps of time for other activities on the island, but we did get back in the water for some snorkeling and this also was beautiful. Probably got some of my better underwater shots from any of our Fiji dives just snorkeling around the reefs off shore here on the island! Only tip here - don’t forget the sunscreen! One of my girls didn’t have sunscreen on before we headed out on the boat dive, and because we spent so much time above water looking for the wreck site, she did suffer some sunburn… rookie mistake and she says it was a small price to pay to experience the wreck dive! 😎 Final anecdote: We saw a gust of wind steal a guest’s hat and blow it into the ocean as he walked out on the jetty. One of the crew members jumped into the glass bottom boat and zoom out to retrieve it before it sank. He didn’t have to do that, but a great example on how keen the staff are to help make sure we have a really great day in every way possible! Great example of the 5 star service the team provides!

Thank you so much for the great review of the Tivua Island day cruise with Captain Cook Cruises. Viti Water Sports team are great and Im so pleased they were able to look after your dive so well. Also great to hear that Raiyawa is looking good. I havent seen any image of it for a couple of years due to border closures and it would be great to see some if you have them. My email is jackiec and then our URL. Hope to welcome you back for a 3 or 11 night dive cruise with us one day soon.

The driver was on time to collect us-fantasic. We are 15min out of arrival when he said I have got to take you back as I collected the wrong people. Arh hold on we are never going to make it back in time for the cruise. okay what will be will be. So back to the hotel dodging the cattle, shirtless guys on horses and many goats only to find the other people got jack of waiting and found there own way. Back to the wharf to catch the boat that was hopefully waiting for us. Great we made it. On the boat we go, but wait we only have a table for 2, not to worry we will set an extra plate. As we sit down we are asked by the lovely waiter would we like a glass of champagne. Hmm no, last I heard champagne only comes from France and made anywhere other is just not cricket. So we passed on the instant headache in the glass and went for beer and GNT after being explained no sorry we don’t have many of the items noted on the list. By the time we asked for number 3 GNT the lovely waiter explained we have run out of tonic. Laugh or cry, I went with laugh. The food was ok but the hot food was cold cold cold. As the AC was set to arctic we headed up to the bridge and sat behind the wheelhouse where there was no AC and a lovely aft water view - don’t open the windows as the fumes are a tad …. Off to see the cultural show performed by the staff doing the best they can in what appeared to be a task they had no choice in if they wanted to get paid. Overall the staff from start to finish were helpful and polite and did the best with what they had but the rest was a 1 out of 10. Captain Cook Sunset Cruise - Denaru Fiji.

Bula, sounds like you got off on the wrong foot with the transfer. We will contact our contractor and ensure this is improved for future guests. There is no excuse for no tonic. G&T in the tropics is mandatory. Thank you for letting us know, it is now restocked. Thank you for the praise of our crew and sorry they didn't deliver as you expected on the night.

We liked the service however, it was very rushed, we felt we could not spend enough time in the island, not enough time to do all the activities, we were taken to Tivua island which is a 1.5 hour trip, but the boat did not leave until 10, so we literally spent 3 hours in the island including lunch, they can improve the service by leaving Port by 9 am which is what other cruises do, the staffs are friendly and service is good, but it does not get a high score because of their timing issue. Their island is one of the furthest from port (some islands are 30 min from port) and they leave after everyone else, felt like paid for a full day - but only got a half day service.

Bula Shubha, sorry you felt like that, for some, part of the experience is the sailing. Also, the cruise departs at 10am and returns at 5pm. This means 4 hours on the island with 3 hours sailing. I'm so pleased the time went so quickly for you so it felt like 3hrs on the island, it shows you had a great time there.
