About Cruising in Fiji

Comprising over 300 islands, Fiji offers unsurpassed opportunities for exploration on both scheduled cruises and make-your-own-itinerary charters. The diversity and variety of the islands mean that you can find a vessel that suits your level of comfort and an itinerary that will amaze you.

There are luxury cruises, sailing safaris, bareboat charters, liveaboards, adventure cruises, yacht charters, fast catamarans, day cruisers, and more… something for everyone.

The islands have all types of scenery and activities available, and by boat you can be assured to experience the diversity: perfect white sand beaches, lush rainforests, cascading waterfalls, dramatic volcanic island craters, limestone caves, calm lagoons, barreling surf, and more. The Joy of cruising the sparking emerald and azure water adjoining the Fiji Islands is not just the pleasure of experiencing untrammelled beauty but also the realisation of child dreams of faraway places.

Fiji afloat is the best way to see Fiji, not only because Fiji is an island nation surrounded by water but also because you will see a lot of Fiji’s diversity in a comparatively shorter time.

For honeymooners and couples, the magical seas of Fiji are a rhythm of romance. From your ship, watch the sun and sky paint the seas with brightness and flair–sunsets, moonlight, and the turquoise glow of the sun striking the sands below the water.

In Fiji, you will find the small-ship cruising experience that suits you and turns dreams into memories. And for a time, you will have an idea of how the Fijians saw their land and waters in the days before outboard motors, when “druas” (native canoes) were predominant.

Taking a cruise is a great way to see more of Fiji. Part of what makes Fiji unique is its many groups of islands, each with its own culture and identity, and cruising is one of the best ways to get around them.
