Seaspray Day Sailing Adventure
Full Day Cruise
A magnificent day on the water! This full day sailing cruise includes a Fijian village visit and time ashore at Modriki Island from Tom Hanks movie 'Cast Away'.
Board the magnificent classic schooner, Seaspray, for a day exploring the crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches and lagoons of the Mamanuca Islands.
Seaspray is an 83 foot schooner offering stable and comfortable sailing. You'll board Seaspray at picturesque Mana Island (transfers to/from Mana are included) to sail through the islands, first anchoring off Modriki Island.
With a Seaspray day cruise, you can go ashore and explore the deserted island, sunbathe on the soft sand, or snorkel the colourful coral reefs. Great snorkelling spots are situated around the island, and our crew will take you on a tender to the best spots.
After Modriki, we head to Yanuya Island. On Yanuya you will visit a traditional Fijian island village. You'll be welcomed ashore with a Kava ceremony (except Sunday) then have the chance to explore the village and meet the locals. A true highlight!
The whole day is a highlight! But two of the standout features from the day are the visits to Modriki Island and Yanuya Island.
Modriki (pronounced 'Mon-driki') is a pristine little haven. The sand is vividly white, and the water is the clearest blue you can imagine. The island was made famous in year 2000 when 'Cast Away', the Hollywood block-buster movie staring Tom Hanks was released. Modriki is the island at which the movie was filmed, and although Tom’s character just wanted to escape Modriki, the last thing you'll want to do is leave!
With a Seaspray cruise you can snorkel your way to shore and explore the deserted island, sunbathe on the soft sand, or read a book under a coconut tree. You'll probably find you'll be snapping a lot of photos too as this lovely island sure is photogenic!
When you step ashore at Yanuya, your smile will just grow wider as you meet the local villagers. This Mamanuca Island is home to a traditional Fiji Island village. The villagers welcome Seaspray guests with a Kava ceremony and traditional dance (meke) performance. You'll be able to try some kava if you wish and then chat to the locals as you browse their handicraft.

Fiji Island Village Customs
While visiting the village you're free to walk around at your own leisure. We ask that the following customs be observed to respect the villagers:
- Do not wear a hat in the village including caps, visors etc. Only the chief has the right to wear a hat in a Fijian Village. Of course, you're welcome to take a hat along with you as the Fiji sun is hot, but please remove it at the village.
- Dress modestly when in the village (women are requested to wear a sarong or long skirt whilst in the village). When on the beach swimsuits including bikinis are acceptable.
