There are many activities to enjoy cruising Fiji including great sports fishing, diving, surfing and exploring the 322 islands, from the remote and unexplored to easily accessible Mamanuca Islands. Fiji lies in the middle of the Pacific Ocean just 4 hour flying from Sydney 9 hours from Honolulu and 12 from Hong Kong. Nadi International Airport has regular services and flights from Australia, the United States and Asia.
The Mamanuca Islands in the West are the most popular cruising grounds and are located close to the Nadi International Airport and Port Denarau the main Port of Call. There are also the spectacular Yasawa Islands to the North and many other exotic destinations to the east of Suva towards Tonga and the Lau group.
The most popular cruising area starts at Malolo Island just 10 miles from Nadi International Airport and Denarau and extends to the top of the Yasawa Island chain more than 100 miles north and includes many quiet and protected anchorages and bays that offer fantastic snorkelling and sightseeing. Fiji is famous for its friendly people and the spectacular scenery and unspoilt beaches and marine environment. Fiji receives less than 700,000 visitors annually and is still pristine in many areas. We have over 10 years of Fiji charter operational experience and know Fiji more extensively than any other charter booking agent.
There are two main islands in Fiji—Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. These islands, collectively, account for around 87% of the country’s population, with over three quarters living in Viti Levu’s coastal urban centres. Suva (the CBD), Nadi (the tourist hub) and Lautoka (the base for the sugarcane industry) are amongst Fiji’s most popular urban centres and each fall within the Coral Coast, Denarau and Momi Bay regions.
Fiji is a tropical destination with year-round air and water temperatures of about 80 degrees and two main seasons, summer and winter.
The ideal time to visit is during the clear, dry winter months of May to November. Yet even during the more humid summer months of December to March showers can be sporadic (typically late-afternoon and overnight) and there's usually plenty of sunshine.
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the U.S. gateway to Fiji. The islands' official carrier, Air Pacific, offers daily non-stops to Nadi International Airport (NAN), as well as a codeshare connection to/from Vancouver, and nonstop flights three times a week from Honolulu. You can fly from all over Australias cities on the east coast - Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in 3-5 hours.
