Catch of the Day

There are fishing options available. One of our friendly captains can take you out sports fishing, either trolling or hand line fishing, to some of the more remote reefs. There are rods, reels and a variety of lures available.

Fish caught in the region include bluefin trevally, walu (Spanish mackerel), barracuda, as well as the occasional tuna. Handline fishing mainly yields reef fish such as snapper, goatfish, trout, wrasse and bream.

Enquire for current charter rates and conditions.

Other boating adventures

If you wish to explore the area further or have a particular request, special boat charters and day tours can be arranged. Some ideas are:

  • Surfing at the world-famous Cloudbreak or other surrounding breaks at the Malolo Barrier Reef. Charter can be arranged through Navini, or with a nearby company that also hires surfboards.
  • Exploring remote islands in the outer areas of the Mamanuca group. There’s Modriki (or Monuriki), which features in the famous movie Cast Away, or the volcanic islands in the northern parts of the group.
  • Shopping on the mainland for handicrafts and souvenirs, and see the local market with its abundance of local fruits, vegetables, sweets and colourful spices.
  • Sightseeing tours on the mainland. Destinations include sugarcane plantations and the sugar mill, the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple near Nadi town, and Port Denarau.

Costs vary and are subject to change, so just let us know what you would like to do and we would be happy to arrange a quote for you.
