South Sea Island Half Day Trip

South Sea Island Half Day Cruise

South Sea Island, just 30 minutes from port Denarau, is a tiny treasure in the Mamanuca Islands surrounded by crystal clear waters and coral reefs teeming with tropical fish. Full day cruise options are also available, as well as Combo cruises including other nearby island sightseeing in the tour.


  • Fantastic snorkelling and swimming throughout the afternoon
  • Swimming pool (salt water)
  • Complimentary kids club    
  • Free use of non-motorised water sports equipment
  • Fijian 'Meke' performance at lunchtime (except Sundays)
  • Massage available (additional cost on the island)


Enjoy your afternoon lazing on the beach, dig in to a delicious barbeque and salad lunch, snorkelling, and enjoying the myriad of activities on offer. There’s also a salt water swimming pool and non-motorised water sports equipment available free of charge.

Hammocks sway peacefully under the cool shade of palm trees and there's plenty of sandy areas to relax. Catch some rays of sunshine with a cool drink beside the pool or take your snorkel and explore the magnificent underwater world below. Although the island is uninhabited, you can still get a taste of Fijian culture with a traditional Meke performance and craft market (Monday to Saturday).

Although the island is tiny, you'll soon find the afternoon passes all too quickly. If you have the time, we therefore highly reccommend the Full day option to make the most of it. Prefer to combine a visit to South Sea island with a sightseeing cruise of the Mamanuca islands? Take a look at the combo cruise!

Food and Drinks

Lunchtime is a highlight of the trip! Everyone gathers around rustic tables at the open-air restaurant to watch Fijian performances and enjoy a delicious BBQ buffet lunch with complementary beer, wine and soft drinks.
