Transfer to Castaway Island

Check in and bag drop was a good experience. Those travelling as resort guests have an exclusive lounge area on the ferry if they wish to use it.

NOTE: This is not a review of Beachcomer Resort itself Our transfer picked us up on time, and cruise left the Denarau Marina approximately on time. The cruise picked us up, again on time, and proceeded to the next island where it picked up all passengers waiting for a ride - the boat was WELL over capacity with people crammed... More

A 30 minute ride in a gigantic catamaran. The small island is pretty but with over 200 guests overcrowded. As drinks were free a lot of people drank far too much. The buffet lunch was just ok. The snorkelling area was unimpressive and because of too many people an unpleasant experience. It took ages to board and even worth one... More

Been on south sea cruises a number of times. South sea island being the favourite go to island. The day cruise is a little long but the transfers to go to an island are easy to and it is very organised chaos with staff that know what they are doing

We use their service just for a transfer from marina to mana Island. Except for a long waiting time before departure, without sign or further instructions, transfer was fine and we enjoyed the view.

We bought our tickets of bookmefiji which made was a lot more cheaper (I think about 70 per person). I can say we really enjoyed this excursion. South sea island is a paradise. It is picture perfect blue waters and white sands. Plenty to do on the island including snorkeling and a salt water pool. The lunch and entertainment is... More

We did this on Jan 1 - really enjoyed the seaspray experience. The staff were fantastic, friendly and entertaining all the way and the food and beverage that was included was also great. The snorkelling at Modriki Island was awesome and the village tour entertaining, although it was a Sunday so no markets or kava but that was fine. The... More

boat had problem, was stuck in the boat for 3.5 hours before getting off to Castaway island which is only 45 mins boat ride from Port. Staff didn't even explain and lied to us couple times saying we would be there very soon. Complained on boat but staff kept saying the line was busy and was going to give me... More

Bula Alina Q, Thank you for your post. Whilst we try our level best to ensure that our high level of service is maintained, by providing a safe, comfortable and efficient transfer to your island destination, unfortunately, on the day you travelled one of our vessels experienced technical difficulties which resulted in the delay you experienced. I'm pleased to report... More

If you don't like the hot afternoon sun and morning sun cooking you then definitely try and get to sit on the Port side of the ship (Left) when facing in the direction of travel especially if the sea is reasonably calm. The windows need a shade screen as you will cop the full sun and subsequent heat for the... More
