Combine the romance of schooner sailing with the incredible scenery made famous by television and movies, and you have the ideal day cruise around the Mamanaca Islands in Fiji. The classic 83-foot (25-meter) wooden schooner was the star of Adventures of the Seaspray, a television series that was filmed on location in Fiji in the 1960s. She has been lovingly maintained and continues to sail around the islands, dropping anchor in the warm, turquoise waters, where you can swim and snorkel.
You will visit the uninhabited island of Modriki, used in the movie Castaway with Tom Hanks, and have time to explore the long stretches of white sandy beach, laze in the sun or snorkel in the lagoons. On the island of Yanuya, you'll meet the locals, be welcomed with a traditional Kava ceremony and experience every day life in a Fijian village.
There’s nothing like a day at sea to give you a big appetite. Morning and afternoon tea will be served, plus a delicious barbecue lunch, including unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks while aboard.
The schooner sails directly from Mana Island. Transfers to and from Denarau and surrounding islands on board a fast catamaran are included.
Important information on Cultural Awareness
