Join us for a 4 day cruise around the remote Nothern Islands from Naviti to Yasawa and see the famous Sawa-i-Lau limestone cave and Blue Lagoon.


  • Explore the remote northern islands from Naviti to Yasawa
  • Visit the famous Sawa-i-lau aquamarine limestone lagoon from the movie ‘Blue Lagoon’
  • Snorkel, dive or swim daily in pristine waters
  • Explore the waterways with our kayaks & glass-bottomed boat tours
  • Visit a new island or coral reef every morning and afternoon
  • Departs Port Denarau Marina, Nadi
  • Departing 12pm Tuesday, returning 9am Saturday

If you’re ready for a slightly longer journey, our four-day trip around the north of Yasawa sports its own unique attractions and experiences. You’ll have access to the same facilities on-board as the three-day cruise, but we’ll be taking you on a magical journey across coral gardens and limestone paths instead.

On the Tuesday of departure, we’ll cruise to our privately-owned Tivua island, where you’ll spend some time exploring the beaches and coral reef (for anyone interested in a shorter tour, we also do one-day cruises to Tivua). You also have the option of diving a new wreck, Raiyawa.

You’ll see many beautiful beaches in the northern Yasawa’s, including Drawaqa Bay on day 2, the Yasawa cave lagoons on day 3, and the luxuriant Yaqeta beach on the final day. Fijian culture hasn’t been forgotten with the cruise visiting Gunu for a feast and cultural performance, Matacawalevu for the shell market, school and village visit, Sawa-I-Lau for a spot of crab racing (as fun as it sounds!), and then we’ll be heading back past Tivua on the final night for another cultural performance from the crew.


Day 1 Tuesday – TIVUA ISLAND
Ni sa Bula’ is the magical call of welcome as you board Reef Endeavour for your island adventure.  Cruise to Tivua Island over a light lunch and safety briefing, to explore the coral gardens, clam farms and a medicine walk through the island before enjoying a South Pacific sunset on your first day at sea. Tonight join the Captain and his crew for the Gala Captain’s Dinner.

Start the day naturally with a morning swim & snorkel in an idyllic bay at Brothers Island. Savour the bounty of a gourmet buffet lunch as you journey to spectacular Naviti Island.  Here is beauty in its original state where you can bask in aquamarine waters along white sandy beaches.  Volleyball, snorkel, swim or explore the island.  This evening join the festivities and entertainment of a Fijian Village at Gunu for a traditional Fijian Feast, Lovo and Cultural performance, Meke.

Day 3 Thursday – SAWA-I-LAU
Discover the legendary grandeur of Sawa-i-lau and the famous limestone caves at your own pace.  Swimming in the cave lagoon is a wondrous experience or you could explore it on an escorted kayak tour.  Join the guided walk to the island village, with a memorable visit to a local school.  Snorkel over spectacular coral gardens, swim in fabled lagoons or test your fitness with a climb to the peak behind the school on Yasawa Island.  Try your luck at crab racing tonight.

Cruise the soaring volcanic peaks of the Yasawas and discover a myriad of fish in the coral reef and laze in the warm sands of Yaqeta.  Cruise the spectacular channels to Drawaqa for amazing snorkelling this afternoon, you may even see a Manta-ray (seasonal).
