3 night Explorer Cruise

FROM

$1,285pp

Step aboard Blue Lagoon Cruises' MV Fiji Princess for an amazing 3 night cruise through the spectacular Yasawa Islands.  Nobody does hospitality quite like the Fijians so be prepared for a warm welcome, big smiles, lots of laughter and the time of your life!

Your crew is 100% Fijian - who better to show you these islands and share their culture and beautiful home?  On-board, you'll enjoy fantastic service, very comfortable accommodations and plenty of activities to keep you occupied. 

This three night cruise departs Port Denarau every Friday afternoon, setting sail for the outer Mamanucas.  The first overnight achorage is in a gorgeous secluded location at Modriki Island, well known as the filming location for the Tom Hanks movie, Castaway.

The following day there will opportunities for swimming, glass-bottom boat viewing, a village visit and time to relax on-board before dinner. 

Day 3 will see you cruising the beautiful Naukacucu and Narara Islands.

Your final day will be spent swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and cruising the stunning Sacred Islands before a high speed catamaran transfer back to Port Denarau.

Note:  To ensure you have the best possible cruise experience, we use 'flexible cruising'. What this means is that we're prepared to alter our itineraries, either when necessary, or when some exciting opportunity arises. For example, if there is some special event taking part in a local Yasawa Village, which you really should see, then we will alter our cruise route to take you there. Or, if we think that that our destined anchorage for the night is not going to be as sheltered as a bay on the other side of the island, we'll up-anchor and move. Cruising through a region of coral lagoons and isolated island anchorages is weather dependent and so, at times, our itineraries may need to be altered. However we'll always endeavor to ensure all of the highlights of each cruise are enjoyed by our guests.
