Getting There


There are two options here both taking around 10 minutes. One is by seaplane with Pacific Island Seaplanes and the other is by helicopter with Island Hoppers. Seeing Fiji, especially the Mamanucas, from the air is quite something.


Again you have two options. One with South Sea Cruises, which takes around 90 minutes, on one of it's 150-seat split deck catamarans with thrice daily trips to and from Denarau Marina. The other is your own personal water taxi with Mamanuca Express.

All transfer details are found on our Transport in Fiji section.
