Great cruise n, camaraderie. lots of Fijiian drinks. Wonderful snorkeling with beautiful abundant coral life. Lunch was wholesome with Lamb n Chicken lots of mango n Papaya.Kayak was fun going around the island. They played music for us and we sang along while sitting under blue canopies to protect us from the sun. Had a wonderful time.

The weather was overcast and warm. With rain predicted in the afternoon (which did arrive) . The trip out to Schooner Island was approx 1.5 hrs, 10 am sailing arrived 11.40 on island, as we were travelling at 6 knots. )The sea was calm and on board we enjoyed champagne, tea, coffee, scones, beer, wine and juice . Some of the crew sang and played guitar for part of it. Sailed past other day islands also . There were plastic deck chairs out on deck and a couple of wooden benches also. Men and a lady toilet on board. To get in and out of main cabin and the upper and lower decks there is a bit of a step. But crew always happy to help!! As we arrived , we then transferred to a smaller boat to take us to the island . Men’s and women’s toilet on island also. Big hut with bench seats and tables to get out of sun or rain, and this is where they served lunch. Option of snorkeling or glass bottom boat during morning and afternoon. Kayaks, volleyball available, but we ran out of time . The snorkeling was great as we saw lots of fish , but due to hurricane a while back the Coral got damaged. However you could see some colours , blue, green, cream I opted to use a noodle ( I am a swimmer) also which as great to keep you a float and check the local residents out . It was an awesome time snorkeling . On the other side of island we fed the smal reef sharks, then snorkeling for a we bit before wind and rain got up. Water was warm and calm before the rain came. BBQ lunch as great- chicken, fish , beef, rice dish, potato salad, coleslaw, fresh bread rolls, beer, wine, soft drink, bottles water. Time on the island was approx 3 hrs as we left island at 2.45 pm . Afternoon tea onboard and once again a great time with the crew singing and playing guitar . We paid FJD199 per adult as we booked within 48 hours of sailing. This price is subject to availability. It was a great day and happily go again, but would love the sun to be out next time .

Fabulous sail to a small island with accessible snorkeling and snorkeling equipment provided. The crew was experienced and helpful and the lunch food was very good. One side of the island was full of shells to collect. The bathrooms were clean. Plenty of trees for shade if you want it. The crew had a couple of guitars and serenaded us on the way back. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

I loved this this trip! It was exactly what I was hoping for!! It’s on a schooner with very friendly Fijian staff. It has a more down to earth feel to it without too many other passengers .... perhaps 50 ish. I did not want a sterile boat ride to an island which had fancy pools. This was a bit perhaps on the more rustic side with wonderful snorkeling and a delicious lunch. Also the staff were really awesome!! I am a little envious of the guys who stay on the small island to watch over it.
