Okay but too rushed
We travelled with our 2yr old and 4yr old and chose this as we didn't think they would last the whole day. It was pretty good but by the time we'd arrived and had the briefing and then got back on the boat to do the submarine tour we only had an hour 15 to do other stuff on the island
The kids couldn't walk on the sand in bare foot as it was sharp coral. So we went to the kids club and kids pool. Hubby and I could only fit in one drink before we had to leave. It's an okay tour = the kids enjoyed it and fell asleep on the way home so that's good. But I think they should maybe make it one hour longer. Just so we could do a little more, given the price. Would I recommend? Perhaps not.

Thanks so much for your review. Yes, most beaches in Fiji have a coral base so some sort of footwear makes it a bit more bearable to walk on! Sorry you felt rushed, perhaps next time the full-day trip (with the earlier return time) might be better suites. Vinaka, The team at South Sea Cruises

Paradise!
Jul 2019 • Family
This was our favourite thing we did in Fiji! The island location was absolutely perfect. Our only regret was not booking the full day tour. We had thought that the kids would be too tired but it was such an amazing place and so much to do that we could have easily spent many more hours here. The submarine tour was a highlight with so many beautiful fish and coral to see. Wading out into the water off the island was amazing with crystal clear waters and colourful fish swimming past. Don’t forget your coral shoes as it is quite rough!

Bula Megan W, By the sounds of it you went on our South Sea Island day trip. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your day there! As you mentioned, the snorkelling available at the island is world class. There are always plenty of aquatic life to see as well as beautiful coral formations. Great for all ages We hope to welcome you back to Fiji in the future Vinaka, South Sea Cruises

Loved it so much we went twice
Great half day out with little one to a beautiful coral island whilst predominantly staying in Denerau and back in time for the arvo sleep!

Key was not trying to fit too much in - go snorkelling as soon as arrive (before other boatloads - not that it was very busy), go on semi-submersible boat, sunbathe, have a few drinks, maybe some more snorkelling then get on the boat and go back home.

Thanks for a really nice, chilled half day x 2

A short day trip, a bit rushed, but cool for little kids
Aug 2019
We only had a half day as we have a 21 month old, so wanted to get back to the hotel for his afternoon sleep. On arrival we were briefed on what to expect, and then waited to go on the boat. The water was pretty murky, but it was great to be able to see some fish. Once back we went for a swim and that was all we had time for. We then had to wait about 40 minutes for the big boat to pick us up to go back to the port, and then were delayed on the bus before we got to transfer back to our hotel. We were meant to arrived back at the hotel just after 12, and didn't end up getting back until almost 2.

It was a fun day, but I felt like we spent a lot of time waiting around which was a shame.

Terrible Snorkeling Trip
Jul 2019
Went for a half day trip with the family, the boat out and back was great. The island experience was not, we were left waiting on a briefing for so long (over 20min) when we were only on the island for 2hrs! we eventually left and went to the flipper handout shop ourselves only to ask the people what we needed and where the best place to snorkel was on the island....they were so rude and unhelpful, totally the opposite of what we had experienced on the mainland. (English descent). We asked if they could snorkel at the back of the island, they grunted and then said NO! We took the kids out the front and it was so choppy to snorkel had water coming in the air tube. Saw about 5 species of fish and then our time was up. The only person on the island who was nice was the Kids Club man who our children loved and he made them flax items. Even the free drinks we had to ask where they were and what we could have. Would not recommend this half day trip at all, I would not take my family back.

Bula LBainbridge, Thank you for reviewing your experience with South Sea Cruises. It would be helpful if you could provide us the details of the day trip that you went on. We apologize if you feel the level of service and activities did not meet your expectations, however, it is difficult to take action based on the limited information provided. We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your time in Fiji Vinaka South Sea Cruises.

Too little time to find nemo, very rushed.
We booked through the resort and had vouchers for the tour, unfortunately the people at the port forgot to give us the vouchers for some of our family. Then we were put on the second boat and delayed for quite a while. In the end, we only had about 1.5 hours on the island which felt rushed and frustrating. After having a quick briefing we were taken out to the submarine for a short look at the reef. After returning to the beach there was another rush to get snorkeling gear. Unfortunately we were missing two of our vouchers, so some of us couldn’t snorkel, but there wasn’t enough time to show the children much anyway. Just a small bommie off the beach if you missed the boat to the reef, but some nice parrot fish and a few neons, not much coral. We did have a drink while waiting for the transfer back to the port. We weren’t the only people to have problems with the vouchers, despite paying for the whole tour. Disappointed.

Short enjoyable visit to South sea island
Jul 2019 • Family
Unfortunately we had a full day cruise to outer islands cancelled due to bad weather so at short notice and with limited time left on our Fiji holiday we booked the Finding Nemo cruise to South Sea island. It was a great morning, and although we would've like to spend more time on the island we managed for fit in about 1.5hrs of snorkelling. We saw quite a few fish, however we saw a greater variety snorkelling off the beach at the resort we stayed at on the Coral coast. The journey to and from the island was quick and enjoyable. A good option if you have limited time available or small kids that can't handle a big day out. The island was tiny, but lovely and looked beautiful, our photos look like postcards!

Bula 146carly, Thank you for sharing your experience. Like you we agree that this day trip is a great option for those that are limited in their time or are travelling with small children. We're pleased that you enjoyed your experience with us and hopefully you'll be able to spend more time exploring the underwater world as we also offer a guided snorkeling trip and ride on the semi-submersible submarine both included in this trip. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Best Regards, South Sea Cruises Management

Overall nice morning on the island
Jun 2019 • Family
We decided to do the half day cruise. Children aged 9 & 10
Am glad we did the half day as I think a whole day on the island would have turned out to be a bit boring. The time we had was perfect.
Everything was well organised, no hidden costs. The only slight let down which was no ones fault was all the jellyfish when we went to snorkel. We think it may have been because of the way the wind was blowing in towards the island. It was very picturesque and once again, fantastic hospitality from the locals.

Bula Bindz, Thank you for sharing your experience at South Sea Island, we are pleased your family and you enjoyed your half day trip with us from the service to the island itself, which you found the half day to be the ideal amount of time for you. We are sorry that the jellyfish were blown that day towards the island which impacted your enjoyment as it is not usual to have jellyfish at our island, however, as you would agree sometimes nature is beyond our control. Once again, thank you for visiting and we look forward to welcoming you back to our little slice of paradise again in the future. Vinaka, South Sea Cruises

Enjoyed this trip with our 16 month-old
Mar 2019 • Family
We enjoyed this trip with our 16 month-old. Although our time on the island went by really quickly we made it back to the hotel in time for his afternoon nap so it was manageable for a toddler that age.
When we got to the island the first thing we did was go on the glass-bottom boat tour which we all enjoyed. It was ok that it was fairly brief because it matched the toddler's attention span. I was a bit disappointed the coral wasn't more spectacular but apparently it had been damaged in a cyclone and they were working to restore it.
Husband and I also both managed to take a brief turn snorkeling. I would have loved to have longer to relax on the island but that can't really happen with a kid that age, so in all it was a fun morning out for our family

Bula Jocelyn_NZ, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your time with South Sea Cruises and that you could make it work with your toddler. Fantastic the glass bottom boat worked well for your family! Regarding the reef, unfortunately, storms can deal significant damage to the coral reefs. We are involved in many coral restoration projects however it will take time to restore them fully.

Expensive boat trip
Apr 2019 • Family
We have just been to Fiji and took our 2.5 yr old we wanted to take her to the semi sub. When we went to the port to catch the boat out I asked the Lady at the counter whether the sub was running because we where told that it was not the day before so I did and was told that it was because if it wasn't we would haven't had gone. When we got there we where told that it wasn't and that we could go snorkelling then we asked for a refund as we where not advised of this and the manger of the island said to go back to reception where we got it and we would be refunded. On return to the resort we did not and because we got on the boat to the island there would be no refund it cost us $250 Australian am very disappointed and would not use this company again as I believe I have been robbed but you make your own mind up!!!
