Cruise Description

7 Night Discovery Cruise sailing from Nadi(Denarau) roundtrip onboard Reef Endeavour.

Enjoy a truly unique Fiji Islands experience in the remote northern islands for a unique cultural experience amongst unfortgettable scenery.

Cruise beyond the Yasawa Islands to the world heritage listed Levuka on the island of Ovalau. You’ll have the opportunity to explore this lovely town steeped in colonial history. See the monument to federation, the Royal Hotel and visit the children of the local school. With its stately backdrop of 19th Century colonial architecture and waterfront promenades, Levuka is a time capsule of colonial rule.

Next we are welcomed with a traditional Fijian ceremony at Makogai Island and a walking tour of Makogai leper colony and nursery, home to giant clams and turtles. In the afternoon, a visit to the local primary school, where the children will entertain you with their song and dance.

Savusavu is the next stop on the island of Vanua Levu, with its hot springs, pearl farms and thriving markets, all perched on an extinct volcanic crater. Then it’s off to Bouma Waterfall National Park on the garden island of Taveuni for a chance to view or hike a series of natural waterfalls, swim in the Bouma Waterfall Lagoon and stand on the 180th Meridian – the arbitrary dateline between today and tomorrow.

Finally, before heading back to Denarau, travel to the northern coast of the main island, Viti Levu, for some excellent snorkelling, a great hike to admire the amazing Bligh Water and a traditional Island Night, featuring kava, meke and a lovo feast.

Tuesday: Depart Port Denarau Marina for Tivua Island
Welcome aboard with a complimentary fruit punch and welcome salusalu (lei) as we set sail for our Fiji Island adventure. This afternoon visit Captain Cook Cruises own exclusive island “Tivua” where you can enjoy a twilight swim, snorkel or relax on the beach. Tonight enjoy our special Welcome Dinner and crew entertainment.

Wednesday: Levuka, Old Capital
This morning we arrive at the port of Levuka on the island Ovalau, situated off the northeast coast of the main island. Levuka was the first European settlement in Fiji and became the centre of British colonial administration and trade. Now world heritage listed, at its peak over 50 hotels catered to the thirst of sailors in port and the town gained a wild reputation. In 1888 the capital was moved to Suva on the main island, and Levuka’s notoriety gradually waned. Passengers are invited to join an optional tour of this now quiet historic town with its stately backdrop of 19th Century colonial architecture and waterfront promenades. In the afternoon we visit the children of Marist Convent Primary School.

Thursday: Makogai, Clam research & Old Leper colony
Start your day at Makogai Island with a traditional Fijian ceremony before joining the 1hour walking tour of Makogai leper colony and nursery, home to giant clams and turtles. In the afternoon return to the island visiting the local primary school where the children will entertain you with their song and dance.

Friday: Savusavu, Hot springs and Pearl farm
This morning we arrive at Savusavu, the second town on the second biggest island in Fiji, Vanua Levu. Savusavu is positioned on an extinct volcanic crater. Choose from a selection of optional tours including a visit to the hot water springs, pearl farm and markets. Later this afternoon we cruise to swimming beach in Savusavu Bay.

Saturday: Bouma Waterfall/Naselesele Village
This morning we disembark on the western side of Taveuni Island - the “Garden Island” of Fiji. The optional bus tour takes you to the beautiful Bouma Waterfall where you can swim and relax in the beautiful setting The tour then continues to the Naselesele Village where you can visit the local handicraft markets. Tonight enjoy the tastes of Fiji with a traditional ‘lovo” (earth oven) feast where we share fresh local seafood, meat succulent tropical fruits. Then dance to the drum of the meke (dance) and kava ceremony.

Sunday: Wairiki, Dateline & Whispering Tide
For an experience not to be missed, join the special choral church service at Wairiki on the western side of Taveuni.
Taveuni Island lies on the 180th Meridian, the arbitrary line between today and tomorrow. After the service our crew will take you to the famous Dateline Meridian where you can literally stand with one foot in the past and one foot in the future. This afternoon we visit Whispering Tide for swimming and snorkelling before our scenic cruise along the south west coast of Vanua Levu navigating Bligh Water.

Monday: Nananu-I-ra, Viti Levu Bay, North Coast of Viti Levu
Cruising south west from Vanua Levu we arrive at Nananu-i-ra on the northern coast of Viti Levu for our customary swim, snorkel and beach-combing. A lazy morning to enjoy our beach visit or an energetic hike about the mountain. After lunch there is our last opportunity ashore before we begin our homeward journey. This evening don your sulu (sarong) and join all the celebrations of our Pacific Island Night Finale. Pre-dinner cocktails and appetisers are served in the Ra Marama Lounge before our gala farewell dinner featuring the music and dance of the South Pacific.
