I have travelled on this many times as i use this mainly to travel for work. Awesome Adventures provide a steady service. They have a bar on board and sell a variety of food and snacks.

They have an airconditoned lounge donwtstairs and also a "captains lounge" for those wanting peace and quiet plus unlimited drinks and snacks whilst on board.

They also have an outdoor deck, which is lovely for taking pictures of the nearby islandsand for those who get seasick! It does get rough when there is bad weather but the team on board are great and help everyone who gets seasick.

All in all, Awesome Adventures provide a comfortable, reliable service.

TIP
get the bula pass if you are doing island hopping as it gets quite expensive the more you stop at different islands

Fast, efficient, but quite basic.
We sat on the top deck for most of the trip, amazing views of all the islands you stop at, if the weather is bad you can sit on the lower deck inside, but i wonder if there is enough room for everyone. If we all want to sit inside....?
It was a long trip to the Yasawa islands, so if you want to be there faster take the resort boat or the seaplane, and most of the time you can connect the same day, while the Yasawa flyer leaves Denerau at 8.30-9.00 AM.

The big yellow boat has "Awesome Adventure" written on it and they are not fooling. The trip we took through the Mamanuca Islands to the Yasawa group for a day at Octopus Resort on Waya Island was a ball. Despite clouds and some rain, we sped through the water on the speedy catamaran, stopping at each island along the way. We saw some beautiful resorts and islands as the ship picked up and discharged passengers. We chose the captain's lounge, which was well worth the extra charge. The lounge offered air conditioning and comfortable seating,along with food and beverages (including wine and beer). We even got to visit with the captain and learn about the advanced navigation system aboard. Our day at Octopus Resort offered us a chance to snorkel the reef along the shore with equipment provided, hike through verdant forests and walk the deep sand beach (very difficult). Lunch in the open air restaurant and swimming in the fresh water pool were included in the package. Mid afternoon, right on time the Yasawa Flyer picked us up for the two hour return trip to Port Denarau. We met some great people on the boat from solo trekkers, to volunteers going to help remote villages, to vacationing fishermen expounding on their catches and Fijians commuting to their homes and work. This was an adventure worth taking to get a feel for Fiji.

This is a nice relaxing ride when the weather is nice. I was wondering if I should take the seaplane to the Yasawas but opted for the boat instead. I have no regrets.

If you want to get to the Mamanucas or Yasawas this is the usual option. Much cheaper than any of the seaplane services but longer of course - we spent longer on this boat than we did on the plane from Sydney. Dont expect much - it is a ferry service. It does that ok though
