We had a spectacular day on this great ship. The staff are so welcoming and entertaining and really looked after us all day. We were provided with a lovely champagne breakfast on boarding the vessel and then we were entertained by three locals, singing playing guitars. When we arrived at the Island we were presented with a traditional Kava ceremony... More

The staff were friendly. Always kept our drinks full. Dinner was great. The tour guides take you out for snorkeling for the best spots. Not for people who can't swim. Its a quick visit. Another hour or two would have been better. Staff member Joe was awesome!

I had an extra day in Fiji after a conference and wasn't sure what to do...so denied on this at the last minute. It was one of the best trips I took. The trip out was gorgeous, the staff were professional, the island was idyllic and I got to use a motorized gadget for snorkeling (thanks, Victor!). Wonderful lunch, nice... More

We had a wonderful day on the Whales Tale schooner. Headed out from Port Denarau and left all cares behind. All food and drinks are taken care of. You go to a gorgeous island for snorkelling and lounging. The drinks keep flowing on the cruise back, and the crew gets out the guitars on deck. Just a superb day. Well... More

If you are looking for a day trip to an island don't go with anyone else but Whale's Tale. We have been here before and done other day trips and this is by far the best. From the moment you step on this sailing ship the exceptional service begins. Unlimited drinks, entertainment, food and the crew are just amazingly friendly... More
