Incredible day. True paradise and what you’d hope to experience while in Fiji. Cruise out and back was beautiful. You have the island to yourself with loads of huts to chill out in and enjoy the view. Lunch was great and the crew was amazing. We’re booking another one before we leave.

Amazing is an understatement! The performers put so much heart into it, we all left feeling completely overwhelmed with how brilliant it was. My favourite thing done in FIJI and better than any performance I’ve seen on a big stage. Definitely not to miss!

One of our best days ever. The crew was so kind (and musical!). The boat wasn’t oversold, the food was good, the drinks were flowing. Will be recommending this trip to all our friends.

A great itinerary. Eventful and fun day with our great guide Kamal. My favourite part was the mud pool and hotspring experience.

Captain Cook is amazing!! The staff was so good and for a solo traveler they made it entertaining
