Activities - onshore & in the water

With a maximum 4 hours cruising per day, you'll spend more time seeing, doing and experiencing Fiji!

Experiencing the unspoilt South Pacific is what we're all about, and we don't expect you to experience it all from a sun lounger on Fiji Princess! With a maximum of four hours cruising per day, we'll get you into the islands, to experience first-hand all the wonders they have to offer. A highlight of a Blue Lagoon cruise is our breathtakingly beautiful Nanuya Lailai, where we have a wonderful private beach available exclusively for your enjoyment. All activities are optional, so if you're so inclined, you're more than welcome to laze on-board and just admire the views. Activities include:

Swimming in warm, crystal waters surrounding the Yasawa and Mamanuca Islands. Every morning at 6am, there is a chance for the 'early birds' to head ashore for a spot of swimming and throughout each day there is plenty of time for cooling off in the sea!  

Snorkelling trips are a-plenty! The colourful underwater world will astound you. Our crew know all the best spots and can give lessons if required. Equipment is provided.

Spend a day at our private, pristine beach on our island, Nanuya Lailai  (4 and 7 night cruises). Fiji Princess will tie off from a coconut tree and you can spend the day on the beach enjoying:

  • Sip on a cool drink under a coconut tree
  • Paddle on kayaks, both single and double. The lagoons are sheltered and safe for all to enjoy!
  • Stand up paddle boards
  • View sea life via our glass bottom boat
  • Challenge the crew to a game of beach volleyball
  • Enjoy the vibrant tropical fish, with a fish feeding session
  • Savour the experience of a traditional Lovo feast under the stars
  • Visit the sacred and spectacular Sawa-I-Lau Caves, which are steeped in history (4 and 7 night cruises)
  • Learn the art of basket weaving and coconut husking (delicious result!)
  • Visit remote Yasawa Island villages
  • Experience a traditional Kava ceremony
  • Focus on the simplicity of kicking-back and relaxing, catching some rays of sunshine and sipping on a cocktail or cool drink in the pool. We like to call this 'Fiji Time'!
  • Diving is outsourced and so is not included in the cost of the cruise, but is so worth it! The Yasawas and Mamanucas offer some fantastic diving opportunities with colourful reefs to explore. Diving is available on all cruises and can be booked once on-board. 'Discover Scuba' courses are also available with prior notification
