South Sea Cruises

Tel: 679 675 0500's insider take:

Though the boats leave from Port Denarau Marina right next to the islands hideous mini mall, and though you are initially herded like cattle to get on the boat, this is one of the best ways to tour the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands in a single day from Nadi, or arrange for an inexpensive transfer to your resort (i.e. Liku Liku Lagoon Resort on Malolo Island). Opt for a seat in the Captain's Lounge. It's a nominal extra fee for a lot of perks, including a more spacious and air-conditioned cabin and waiters to bring you drinks. The full-day and half-day tours include lunch, and, depending on which route you choose, several stops on various islands where you can swim, snorkel, sunbathe, and wander around for a bit. However, be prepared for lots of families and little kids afoot.
