Itinerary
Stop At:  
South Sea Cruises
For lots of fun under the sun, you can't beat a day at South Sea Island. A day trip to South Sea Island is an easy 30 minute ferry ride from Denarau Marina with South Sea Cruises. It may be small in size, but there is plenty to keep you entertained. The hardest part is choosing what to do first! There is a salt water swimming pool and FREE use of non-motorized water sports equipment, including kayaking and sailing. Discover the underwater world with hours of snorkelling or if you want to stay dry, jump on board the semi-submersible coral viewer. Make sure you keep an eye out for Nemo! A tasty BBQ buffet lunch and beer, wine and soft drinks are included while ashore. Although the island is uninhabited, you can still get a taste of Fijian culture with a traditional Meke performance and craft market Monday to Saturday. Introductory diving (additional cost) is a particular focus on this island with pretty reef formations and plentiful fish making it a first time diver's dream. Start in the pool and then explore the stunning coral gardens and the fish life surrounding the island on a 'Discover Scuba' intro dive. There is also plenty to keep certified divers amused, with several beach dives and a purposefully sunk shipwreck. Diving in this area you can encounter drop offs and wall dives with lots of hard corals, crystal clear water & large schools of pelagic fish.

Traveler Tips


  • "What is beneficial about this trip is that you get to the island quick which means you have more time to spend there." See review
  • "Just be mindful that it is less of an “all-day tour” and more like a couple of hours on the island, with the rest of the day getting to and from the island." See review

Over priced and disappointing
Aravind_M
, Apr 2022
Island itself isn’t great for the cost. On top of it if you don’t know swimming it’s pretty much worthless as you would just be trying to snorkel on the rocky (very sharp broken pieces to walk) shores of the beach in the shallow waters. If you are a vegetarian food is very ordinary Free drinks is pathetic with opened wine bottles served all day. Canned beers were still ok The only positive for non-swimmers was kayaking but that too has a waiting time if someone’s already using it as they have very few kayaks Overall a very disappointing, over rated and over priced tour. Don’t recommend this at all

We booked 2 trips with Viator prior to travel and the process was easy and hassle free. We had a sensational time especially at South Sea Island. One of the highlights of the holiday. Great comfortable transfers, beautiful location, great activities and entertainment with all-inclusive lunch and drinks for the day. Highly recommend it.

Ok experience, but nothing special. Facilities are adequate, but much of the beach is rough coral. Snorkeling again is just ok.

slice of paradise
Simmi_L
, Feb 2022
south sea island is a simple boat ride away, and a gorgeous uninhabited paradise. the day began with a cruise over to the island, where we were then introduced to the friendly staff. scuba diving was surreal, and the snorkeling was gorgeous. simply lounging on the beach chairs on the sea shore made for a beautiful day, as we were blessed with sunny skies. Lunch was barbeque with salads, and the performance was engaging and enjoyable. This tour is perfect for a slice of paradise off the main island.

My friend and I booked a trip to Fiji last minute and this was one of the few day trips with availability left- and we’re so glad we could make it! The pick-up shuttle was prompt, and the boarding experience to get to the island was organised. Everyone along the way was so friendly and helpful, which made the day that much better. On the island, we found a shady spot and spent most of the day relaxing with drinks, while popping into the water for guided snorkelling and our own snorkelling along the way. A truly amazing day, the perfect tropical island experience, especially if you want a mix of relaxing and activities! Loved every minute!

Outstanding day cruise, not to be missed!

The South Sea Island Day Cruise was a phenomenal experience -- do not miss it. It started at the Denarau cruise terminal. A medium sized ferry took us to the South Sea Island -- which is literally no more than 300-400 meters in diameter. The water was pristine, clear enough to see the bottom easily. We went in the glass-bottom boat and were able to see a huge variety of corals and multi-colored fish. Then it was snorkeling where after some shallow water practice the boat took us out around 300 m from the island. We also did a fair bit of kayaking near the island shore. It was topped off by an excellent meal (included) and the Fijian dance show. Overall, a very memorable experience and one that I would highly recommend.

Great service from hotel pick-up , boat transfers , food , plenty of refreshments, entertainment and finally drop off. The water is incredibly clear and snorkelling was better than expected. We all loved the day ( kids 12&14). We would recommend to everyone gladly.
