South Sea Island is Fiji’s most popular day cruise island and is a short high-speed catamaran ride with South Sea Cruises from Port Denarau. Being so close to Denarau means you can make the most of your time lazing on the beach, snorkelling, swimming, and enjoying the many activities on offer.

After a few hours to explore the tiny island and a buffet lunch, jump back onboard our high-speed catamaran and enjoy a few hours sightseeing through the beautiful Mamanuca Islands as we stop to drop off/pick up passengers along the way.

Plenty to do Being small in size, it means you can explore it in the just under 2 hours you have on the island before boarding the island cruise, with plenty to keep you entertained such as a semi-submersible submarine for underwater viewing, a saltwater swimming pool and complimentary use of all non-motorised water sports equipment such as snorkelling gear, stand up paddle boards and kayaks.

Food and drinks Lunchtime is a highlight on the island when everyone gathers around rustic tables at the open-air restaurant to watch Fijian performances and craft market (both daily except Sundays). Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch and complimentary local beer, house wine, and soft drinks while on the island.

Additional options For an additional cost while on the island treat yourself to an island massage and be sure to try one of our handmade cocktails or grab a snack at the Tipsy Turtle Bar.

  • One of the best experiences I've had in a long time. The island was beautiful, super friendly staff always ready to help. Snorkeling and kayak equipment were complimentary. The food was great, and the infinity pool was something I'd never experienced. Highly recommended!

    Review of South Sea Island
  • It was an amazing cruise with a delicious lunch and wine. We got to snorkel with colourful fish. We then spent the afternoon island hopping seeing other places we could stay. The Fijian show was excellent. We had a wonderful day.
