South Sea Island is Fiji’s most popular day trip 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 the day lazing on the beach, snorkelling, diving, and enjoying the many activities on offer.

Plenty to do It may be small in size, but there is plenty to keep you entertained with 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 explore craft markets (both daily except Sundays). Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch. Complimentary local beer, house wine, and soft drinks are also included all day long while on the island.

Additional options For an additional cost while on the island why not try scuba diving (both Introductory and Certified dives available), or treat yourself to an island massage, and be sure to try one of our handcrafted cocktails 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.
