The day starts with an arranged pick up from your hotel in Nadi between 8-9 am (depending on the location of your hotel) and transfer to the marina. Offering a taste of the islands, your cruise begins when you climb aboard the magnificent white-sailed tall ship, Ra Marama, or the luxurious, sleek sailing catamaran Fiji One. From there, you’ll embark at 10 am on the 1 hour 15 minutes journey to Tivua island. Once at the island, you’ll be escorted to the dive centre to register and after the dive equipment has been set up, it is time for the dive (around 11:30 am) which usually lasts 40 minutes. Lunch and drinks are then served on the island at 12:30-1 pm. At around 2:30 pm the divers gear up again for the second dive of the day.
Circled by white sandy beaches, and boasting 500 acres of vivid coral garden, Tivua is a tiny jewel of the Mamanuca Islands where you will experience traditional Fijian culture. You’ll have the opportunity to take a nature walk, learn to weave and partake in a traditional Kava ceremony. While you’re there, you’ll also see the serene beauty of the countryside. We offer paddleboarding, canoeing and seasonal bird and turtle nesting viewing, and we’ll take you snorkelling to see the crystal clear oceans and marvellous sea life. On the island there are huge gardens of tropical flowering hibiscus, walk along the smooth beachfront and stare out into the perfect ocean view. For those of you who’d rather take the day to relax, we’ve got beach massages, catered food and drink, relaxing glass-bottomed boat tours, and the services of the Senekai Day Spa. There are kids activities in the Captain’s Kid’s Club and there is always something for the whole family, guaranteed.
At 3:30 pm the boat starts to cruise back and arrives at the marina at around 5 pm.
