Your Dream Vacation is Here



3 Night Southern Yasawa Island Cruise

Take a cruise around the Mamanuca and Southern Yasawa Islands and come face to face with some of the most beautiful sights that the islands have to offer. Take in the breathtaking island scenery on an adventure that’s perfect for those with limited time.

3, 4 or 7 Night Cruises

Highlights: Sacred Islands, Waya & Waya Sewa, Sawa i Lau limestone cliffs and aquamarine lagoon are the most awe inspiring beaches in the group.
Cruise amongst the breathtaking scenery of Mamanuca and Southern Yasawa Islands on this spectacular small ship adventure. Designed for those with limited time, it allows you to enjoy the best of this extraordinary part of the world in 3 unforgettable nights.
You’ll sail through the Mamanuca Island group to Nuku-I-Mana cay, a famously beautiful location renowned for its excellent snorkelling. The Mamanucas are Fiji’s most popular island group, made up of 20 palm fringed islands that are home to some of Fiji’s most exclusive resorts. With stunning white sand beaches, warm turquoise water, swaying coconut palms and amazing coral gardens, you’ll be completely captivated by their untouched beauty.

Continuing your journey, you’ll visit Monuriki, the sheltered island where the classic movie Cast Away starring Tom Hanks was filmed. With a very ‘deserted island’ feel, it boasts an incredible beach, excellent kayaking and snorkelling spots teeming with ocean life and amazing coral gardens.
You’ll also cruise to the Sacred Island, which is steeped in Fijian history and folklore to take part in a gift-giving ceremony and then visit Waya, where you can meet the villagers or climb to this volcanic island’s lookout. The Yasawa island group is made up of 16 islands stretching a total distance of 90 kilometres. Formed by volcanic activity, they are more rugged than the Mamanucas and are the ideal place to experience pristine natural beauty.
All the while, as you take in this breathtaking scenery, you’ll be enjoying the many facilities that MV Reef Endeavour has to offer, including fully catered buffets and 3-course meals, massage services, jacuzzi and cocktail bar, mini gym and freshwater swimming pool.
Our Mamanuca & Southern Yasawa Islands small ship adventure is ideal for those with busy schedules who want to take a quick break and unwind. Departing 12pm Saturdays and returning 9am Tuesdays, it’s the perfect quick getaway for recharging your batteries.

You can adapt our discovery cruises to suit your holiday. We can collect, or drop you off, at many of the destinations that we cruise to.

Captain Cook Cruises is proud to announce the arrival of small ship luxury expedition cruising in Fiji. MS Caledonian Sky, the luxury expedition small ship will replace MV Reef Endeavour and see the dawn of a new era of high end cruise experiences never seen in Fiji before. Her arrival elevates and expands the pioneering expeditions Captain Cook Cruises’ Reef Endeavour has undertaken since the late 1990s and will be exploring the most remote and beautiful parts of Fiji, Tonga and Samoa.


MV Reef Endeavour may be smaller than some cruise liners, but we’re big on life’s little luxuries. We offer international cuisine with a Fijian influence prepared fresh daily by our team of chefs, a Captain’s Kids Club for children aged 5 – 9 years, plus a gym, jacuzzi, day spa and swimming pool. If you’re interested in Fiji’s natural wonders, we have a resident marine biologist onboard. Our cruises also include daily island stopovers, a big choice of water-based activities such as kayaking, snorkelling, diving and stand-up paddle boarding plus guided island, village and school tours and traditional lovo feasts all included in the price.

Captain Cook Cruises cater for all kinds of travellers, with short 3 and 4 night cruises for those on a tight schedule who still want a holiday. But if you only have limited time available, our 11 night cruise is not for you. This holiday is for those who want to switch off for a while and enjoy the rhythms of natural Fiji, exploring new destinations and cultures one day at a time. No clocks, no WiFi (except when there’s reception) and no schedule other than having a relaxing, interesting and indulgent day doing as much or as little as you please.
We want you to have a unique holiday with us, so we try to make our cruises as flexible as possible by customising them wherever we can. For example, our chefs can cater for most diets and food allergies and if you’re celebrating a special event, we can help organise it, whether it’s a party or a wedding on a Fijian beach. We’ve also customised our cruises, with a choice of 3, 4, 7 and 11 nights depending on your available time. We also provide complimentary pick-up and drop-off at most Mamanuca resorts every Saturday and the option to join or disembark from some of our Remote North cruises in either Vanua Levu or Taveuni.
All our itineraries include a visit to a local school and village, where we ask that you cover your knees and shoulders and remove your hat and sunglasses in line with local customs. The local way to cover your knees is with a sulu or sarong for men and women. There is normally a ‘no obligation’ donation box at each school where donations of sporting equipment, clothing, stationery or books are always welcome (no lollies or candy please). If you’d rather not make a donation, another way you can help is by purchasing some of the locally made arts and crafts at the village market.
MV Reef Endeavour offers most of the facilities and amenities you’d expect to find on a large cruise ship. These include chef prepared meals made fresh daily onboard, 4 levels of luxurious accommodation, free WiFi when available, 24/7 tea and coffee making facilities, a kids club for children aged 5 to 9 years and even an onboard marine biologist providing cultural tours and eco presentations. We also have a mini gym, jacuzzi, day spa, swimming pool. dining saloon, cocktail bar, conference room, guest laundry, library and gift shop. Plus some additional services are available for a cost such as spa treatments and PADI diving courses.

“ This is our 12th cruise, mostly on large liners and to be honest this is the most fun we have ever had. The crew were fantastic and all the guests got to know one another. We love Fiji having visited many times and certainly hope to do another Captain Cook cruise.
