3 Nights Mamanuca & Southern Yasawa Islands Captain Cook Cruise

3 Unforgettable Nights

From $1471

per person


Cruise amongst the breathtaking scenery of Mamanuca and Southern Yasawa Islands on this spectacular small ship adventure. Designed for those with limited time, it allows you to enjoy the best of this extraordinary part of the world in 3 unforgettable nights.

You’ll sail through the Mamanuca Island group to Nuku-I-Mana cay, a famously beautiful location renowned for its excellent snorkelling. The Mamanucas are Fiji’s most popular island group, made up of 20 palm fringed islands that are home to some of Fiji’s most exclusive resorts. With stunning white sand beaches, warm turquoise water, swaying coconut palms and amazing coral gardens, you’ll be completely captivated by their untouched beauty.

Continuing your journey, you’ll visit Monuriki, the sheltered island where the classic movie Cast Away starring Tom Hanks was filmed. With a very ‘deserted island’ feel, it boasts an incredible beach, excellent kayaking and snorkelling spots teeming with ocean life and amazing coral gardens.

You’ll also cruise to the Sacred Island, which is steeped in Fijian history and folklore to take part in a gift-giving ceremony and then visit Waya, where you can meet the villagers or climb to this volcanic island’s lookout. The Yasawa island group is made up of 16 islands stretching a total distance of 90 kilometres. Formed by volcanic activity, they are more rugged than the Mamanucas and are the ideal place to experience pristine natural beauty.

All the while, as you take in this breathtaking scenery, you’ll be enjoying the many facilities that MV Reef Endeavour has to offer, including fully catered buffets and 3-course meals, massage services, jacuzzi and cocktail bar, mini gym and freshwater swimming pool.

Our Mamanuca & Southern Yasawa Islands small ship adventure is ideal for those with busy schedules who want to take a quick break and unwind. Departing 12pm Saturdays and returning 9am Tuesdays, it’s the perfect quick getaway for recharging your batteries.
