South Sea Island Full Day Trip

South Sea Island Full 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. Enjoy 8 hours in paradise on this Full Day Tour, relaxing on the beach, swimming in turquoise waters, enjoying complementary buffet lunch and drinks or even going on an introductory or certified dive!


  • Fantastic snorkelling and swimming throughout the day 
  • Swimming pool (salt water)
  • Complimentary kids club    
  • Free use of non-motorised water sports equipment
  • Fijian 'Meke' performance at lunchtime (except Sundays)
  • Intro / certified diving available (select from the upgrade in the menu)

Enjoy your day 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).

If you don't have a full day to spend but would still love to visit this gorgeous island, check out the half day option instead. Prefer to combine a visit to South Sea island with a sightseeing cruise of the Mamanuca islands? Take a look at the combo cruise!
