Nadi Cruises from Fiji
Fiji is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the South Pacific. Fiji is only a four hour flight from Australia’s east coast and only a three hour flight from New Zealand, so it is the perfect holiday destination. Many people choose to stay in one hotel, but there is also the option to cruise Fiji Islands and Nadi Cruises.
Fiji Island Cruises
The Mamanuca Islands and Yasawa Island groups, located north of Nadi, are the perfect destinations for a Fijian Island Cruise. Cruising this island group is done on a small ship so that the narrow passages and coral reefs can be navigated. Cruises of these island groups leave from Nadi and are normally between 3 and 7 nights duration.
You can go on cruises of the Fijian Islands to Yasawa, a tropical island dream of long white beaches, turquoise seas and colourful coral reefs. Cruises of this island group also give you opportunities to experience Fijian culture by experiencing a traditional village Sevusevu ceremony and attending a special choral church service on Sundays. You will also have plenty of time to relax, swim, snorkel, beach comb and view the coral reef from a glass bottom boat.
Nadi Cruises also allow you to explore Northern Fiji and see places that are seldom visited by tourists. Cruising beyond the Yasawa Islands you will visit the quiet historic town of Levuka, swim in the Bouma Waterfall Lagoon on Tavenui and explore Savusavu’s extinct volcano, hot springs and bustling market.
Cruise Fiji Island Cruises
Port Denarau and Suva, Fiji are two ports that are included in Fiji cruises. Port Denarau is situated on the west coast of Fiji’s largest island Viti Levu. A melting pot of Melanesian, Micronesian, Polynesian, Western and Indian influences as well as some beautiful scenery means that there is a wide variety of activities to choose from once your cruise of Fiji or the South Pacific stops in Port Denarau.
Suva is Fiji’s capital and the administrative centre of the islands. Suva is built around a natural harbour and is home to nearly half of Fiji’s population. Cruises of the Fiji Islands that stop in Suva offer passengers’ opportunities to experience Fijian culture, such as taking part in a Kava Ceremony and firewalking. Passengers can also to explore some of the Fijian rainforest on foot or by river cruise.
