One day only in Port Denarau- What should we do?

Hi to all,

My Husband and I will be on a P & O cruise that gives us a day in Port Denarau- we usually book shore tours, but thought that I may just do something ourselves and looking for suggestions- we love snorkeling, and will arrive in PD at approx 8 am and need to be back at the ship around 4pm.

All answers will be gratefully looked at. Thanks

There are trips to some of the closer islands, however the timing of the trips may not fit your arrival and departure times. You need to give yourself time to disembark on arrival in Fiji.

They would have special trips for cruise ship passengers, which will cost a lot more than doing it yourself, but are tailored to your timings

South Sea Cruises have trips but not ideal timing for you. Perhaps email and ask them about trips to suit your timetable


Adrenaline Fiji may have snorkelling trips http://www.adrenalinfiji.com/

Denarau does not have good beaches, nor clear blue water for snorkelling.

Some other things to do close to Nadi

A trip on one of the boats would be risky. You always have to factor in the weather in Fiji because it can change very suddenly, and if u are pressed for time and the visibility drops to zero u might not get back in time.

There are shops and eateries at Port Denarau, you can also get a day pass on the Bula Bus and visit the other hotels.
