Snorkeling A+++++++++++
We went in this tour (3/10/20) and had a wonderful day! The crew onboard is very friendly as is everyone in Fiji.. the ride out to the island is about an hour where they serve a nice continental breakfast with assorted fruits, juices, pastries and muffins. Bottled water available all day. The crew entertaining with singing/guitars & eukeles! They did a kava ceremony on the island once there. Free time to relax, swim, snorkel, whatever you want to. We opted to rent the power snorkel from Victor. (It’s an additional fee). I cannot day enough good things about him. He was so great with us. Was very patient, showed us how to use them, even took us out again after lunch again for a 2nd time! When you rent the power snorkel, he attaches a camera, so you can video your entire experience as well as take photos. I’ve snorkeled a lot, but my son (whose 26 years old) has not), so victor really spent a lot of time helping him showing him, helping him. I had a digital camera that victor even took and took photos for us, and of us while we were out. He was just amazing and prob one of the best dive guides I’ve seen. THANK YOU VICTOR for an amazing day! Highly recommend this tour!! A++++++++++++

Whale's Tale day sail cruise Fiji
Mar 2020
Highly recommend this cruise. The staff were amazing. The whole Island and snorkeling experience was excellent.
Great food and drinks provided for the whole day. We booked this cruise down at the Marina on Denarau island and everything from pick up and drop off was perfect. Special thanks to Calvin (one of the crew) who went out of his way to look after us for the whole day included showing us the best spots to snorkeling.
Cheers Stuart & Jacinta

Trip - Good. Management Company - Terrible
Mar 2020 • Family
The trip itself was very good. Great crew. Boat good. Lots of food and plenty of choice. Drinks whenever required. Go to the island snorkel, kayak, swim, get a massage, play volley ball.
We booked the trip via Tripadvisor, the Management Agent was awful. I booked, paid and requested the free pickup. I heard nothing back. I wanted confirmation of a pickup and tine. I messaged on the email several times, well before the trip. As we didn’t get confirmation of the pick up, I tried to phone the evening before and early that morning but couldn’t get through. I had to hire a car, to make sure we got there ok. When we got there - they said someone had gone to collect us??! That was not true. We checked with our hotel. By not simply confirming the details it caused a lot of wasted time in trying to contact them and the stress of not knowing. We also incurred additional charges in having to hire a car and all they said was sorry?! I want some money and you can’t just say the lifts are complimentary, because you should have confirmed and you provided bad customer service; if we hadn’t hired a car, we probably wouldn’t have got on the trip!! I would have given this 4/5 stars if it wasn’t for all the hassle we had.

We do hope that this did not dampen your Fiji Holiday experience and please feel free to drop me an e-mail at mitieli@rosie.com.fj as this will allow us to discuss further. Please note that I have sent you a private message and I look forward to hearing back from you Again, our humble apologies for the inconvenience this has caused you Best Regards, Mitieli Vodonaivalu Rosie Holidays Fiji

Amazing day tour
What an amazing experience, plenty of food/drink and great crew. Such a highlight of our holiday in Fiji, from the sailing, snorkeling , glass bottom boat and entertainment on board. Great value, you won’t regret it at all.

Best bang for your buck! A whale of a day!
After very extensive research of all available day trip snorkel adventures I choose this one for us to take as a couple! It proved to be an excellent choice as it certainly provided the most bang for the buck and you can even get it for under 100$ US at 199$ Fijian if you book it within 48 hours of sailing from the open air sales booth BB on the BB pier at the Denarau Port. It starts with a continental breakfast of pastries and mimosas or champagne en route to their island. They never ran out of champagne! Also available were red and white wine and Fiji gold and bitter. They cap the trip at 55 adults to avoid overcrowding and the crew is very helpful and exuberant. The boat is a great 55 foot sailing boat with auxiliary engines for BB power. The day was sunny and gorgeous and there was a nice cooling breeze and the ride to their island did not seem overly long at about 90 minutes and you got some great views of the Mamanucca Islands en route. After arriving at the island there was ample time for snorkeling before a great bbq buffet was available including bbq fish, chicken and beef along with tropical fruits, salad and cole slaw. Naturally there was more champagne beer and wine as well as fruit juices to drink and bottled Fiji water as well. Then we had the opportunity to see baby sharks and the feeding of them and go b on a glass bottom boat ride or do more snorkeling as well CV prior to departing the island for the return trip, with BB plenty of more drinks on our return trip as well. A great full day with pick up from the hotel about 9 am and return about 530 pm and great memories of a Whale’s Tail of a day to cherish forever! Very highly recommended!

Lots of fun!!
Jan 2020
The ship is in great ship and the trip to the island took over an hour and forty five minutes.. The crew was very entertaining. They played guitars and sang with us to and from the island. Captain Mike was great. Once on the island, the crew was very helpful in setting up the snorkeling, kayaking and glass bottom boat. The snorkeling was ok, but there are better spots for that. Most of the coral has disappeared and there was a limited amount of sea life.The crew prepared a really good lunch with plenty to eat and drink. We were on the island for about 4 hours. Had lots of fun. The crew made it more fun.

What a fab day out !
Was amazing . Food and drinks for all , we were lucky enough to have the best day - singing on the boat - very relaxed
Highlight though was Charli - power snorkeling a great thing to do for honey moon memories and we came home with a memories stick to keep of the power snorkeling chart was honestly the best awesome tour guide . If you want some thing different to do in this whale tale yacht take extra money with you so if you choose to power snorkel you can . Thanks charli . Your kiwi friends simon and Chantal
