Dive Fiji like never before with Captain Cook Cruises four-night Northern Yasawa and Tivua Island cruise and dive package aboard small ship cruise vessel MV Reef Endeavour. Priced at only $2268 per person, it not only offers savings of $880 per person but guarantees divers will dive at different and untouched locations each day, while accessing the most remote and pristine areas of Fiji.
This amazing four-night Northern Yasawa and Tivua Island cruise and dive package includes 20% off porthole cabin fares with a free upgrade to an ocean stateroom and seven dives throughout the cruise, including at new Tivua Island dive wreck Raiyawa.
The cruise visits some world class dive spots and offers guests two dives each day, always in different locations. Dive groups are small in numbers and dives last about 40 minutes. All scuba diving is operated by Viti Water Sports, a PADI5 Star Dive Centre, and cater for certified, occasional and first time divers.
First time divers can learn to dive onboard, practicing all the basics skills in the pool and then experiencing their first open water dive in the warm clear waters.
Passengers can experience seven free dives on the four-night cruise and choose from over 15 dive sites including The Blue Lagoon, The Zoo, The Maze, Babylon Caves and Mistiq, all offering a different dive experience from diving through caves and canyons, over breathtaking coral gardens, to wall diving and diving through amazing marine life including pelagics and sharks.
According to Captain Cook Cruises passenger and avid diver, Mike Agnew, “Diving on the 4 day Yasawa Cruise is a must. You visit so many more locations than you could from a resort – all different, all interesting and the dive crew can pretty much select dive sites for your preference – drift, macro, wide-angle, shark, swim-throughs – all in great visibility. We never even saw another dive boat, let alone had to share a dive site. Fantastic!”
Diving Raiyawa, Captain Cook Cruises Fiji’s newest dive site just off Tivua Island is also included in the package. Having only opened this year, Raiyawa, has been turned into a wreck divers dream. Offering an exciting dive for advanced divers, divers descend down through misty, rich waters with the ship coming into sight like a ghost ship.
“MV Raiyawa was a great dive. Easy descent (and ascent) along the bow-line, lots of fish around and in the wreck, spooky nooks and crannies and plenty of cut-outs to allow safe penetration through big or small hatches. I thoroughly recommend it as a dive.” Says Mr Agnew.
As well as visiting world class dive sites, the four-night cruise also visits the private island of Tivua, the Sawa-l-Lau limestone caves and blue lagoon and cruises the spectacular passage from Yaqeta Island to the Yasawa’s northern reaches.
Along the way passengers visit remote villages, churches and schools and take part in traditional village sevusevu ceremonies and Meke and Lovo feasts.
There is also plenty of time for relaxing on warm white sandy beaches, swimming in crystal clear waters, snorkelling over amazing coral reefs, stand up paddle boarding and even taking a glass bottom boat ride to witness the abundance of marine life that thrives on Fiji’s coral reefs.
Stay on-board and be pampered at the ships Senikai Day Spa, or simply relax on the sun deck by the spa or pool or grab a cocktail at the pool bar.
