Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures while living in Fiji. 

Whales Tale Day Cruise

Whales Tale Day Cruise

Sailing along with bakery treats and mimosas in hand wasn't a bad start to the day!

We were lucky enough to be given this trip as a honeymoon gift from friends and we absolutely loved it! The Whales Tale sailing tour is an all day adventure, starting from Port Denarau, then sailing for about an hour and a half while you sit back and relax on the deck and the friendly staff ensure you are always topped up drinks. 

The sailing destination is Schooner Island which is a small pristine tropical paradise where you can go snorkelling, kayaking, chill in a hammock or play beach volleyball. The island doesn't host any accommodation or other day trips so you have it all to yourself and as you can see from the images below, it is pretty picture perfect.  


What's included in the day trip package:

  • Coach pick up from your hotel
  • Sailing trip out to Schooner Island
  • All you can eat and drink – Starting the day with a champagne breakfast with danishes and fruit, a full buffet lunch on the island and afternooon tea back on the boat as you sail back to Port Denarau. Soft drink, water, beer and wine were available throughout the day. 
  • Free activities on the island include; snorkelling, kayaking and beach volleyball. 

Who this is suited to

If you want a nice day out on the water and away from your resort then this sailing trip is perfect. 

  • Couples – This trip is great for couples who want to chill out and enjoy the sailing experiencethen relax on the island or go kayaking and snorkelling. 
  • Backpackers – If you are ok with the price then it's a fun day out and you can eat and drink as much as you like, but it isn't a budget day trip. 
  • Families – This trip is suitable for families and the staff were so helpful and friendly with the kids. I would just be mindful that you are on a sailing ship so if you have little ones that want to climb everything and run around a lot, you would need to keep a close eye on them. 

Cost: $229FJD or approx. $148AUD - Full day 9.30am -5pm. Check out their website if you want to know more about the trip - Whales Tale Day Cruise

If you want a day trip adventure from Nadi that is easy and not too overcrowded or hectic, then the Whales Tale sailing trip is a really relaxing and fun day out.
