Peppered with palm trees and surrounded by a coral lagoon, uninhabited South Sea Island is truly one of Fiji's gems.

A day trip to South Sea Island is an easy 30 minute ferry ride from Denarau Marina with South Sea Cruises. The close location to Denarau means that you can make the most of the day lazing on the beach, snorkelling, diving and enjoying the myriad of activities on offer.

It may be small in size, but there is plenty to keep you entertained. The hardest part is choosing what to do first! There is a salt water swimming pool and non-motorised water sports equipment available free of charge, including kayaking and sailing.

Get into 'island time'

Great things come in small packages, which couldn't be truer for South Sea Island. Strolling from one side of the island to the other takes all of a minute but, small as it may be, you'll have no trouble finding your own spot in paradise. Hammocks sway peacefully under the cool shade of palm trees and there's plenty of sandy areas to relax under the trees. Catch some rays of sunshine with a cocktail or cool drink beside the pool, or take to the calm, clear waters with your snorkel to explore the magnificent underwater world below. 

Discover the underwater magic of Fiji

Discover the underwater world with hours of snorkelling or if you want to stay dry, jump onboard the semi-submersible coral viewer. Make sure you keep an eye out for Nemo!

Introductory diving is a particular focus on this island with pretty reef formations and plentiful fish making it a first time diver's dream. Start in the pool and then explore the stunning coral gardens and the fish life surrounding the island on a 'Discover Scuba' intro dive.

There is also plenty to keep certified divers amused, with several beach dives and a purposefully sunk shipwreck. Diving in this area you can encounter drop offs and wall dives with lots of hard corals, crystal clear water & large schools of pelagic fish.

A rich Fiji culture

Although the island is uninhabited, you can still get a taste of Fijian culture with a traditional Meke performance and craft market Monday to Saturday.

Full Day Cruise 

The South Sea Island Full Day cruise means you'll get to see and do everything this fantastic little island offers! It's small in size but you certainly won't get bored. 

Half Day Cruise 

The Half Day cruise to South Sea Island is perfect for those who don't have a lot of time to spare, but still want a taste of the 'real Fiji'. This fantastic cruise means you'll get to explore one of Fiji's cutest Mamanuca Islands and get into 'island time'. As the island is only 30 minutes from Denarau, you'll have time to do many of the activities on the island and meet the friendly Fijian's ashore.

Finding Nemo 'Family' Cruise 

A fun family day in Fiji! South Sea Island is perfect for families with small children! If you would like a short trip out to South Sea Island to suit the kids, then this is the cruise for you.

In just 30 minutes you'll be at South Sea Island where you can spend two hours and be back at Denarau in time for lunch. In the two hours, you can see the stunning underwater world of the Marine Sanctuary that surrounds the island with its colourful coral and magnificent fish life. You don't even have to get wet as we'll take you to view all this in our semi-submersible vessel. You sit beneath the surface viewing the coral and fish through large panoramic windows.

Then spend some time ashore relaxing, go kayaking, take a swim in the pool or go snorkelling.

Combo Cruise 

A fantastic combination cruise exploring the outer Mamanuca Islands and 3 hours spent ashore at South Sea Island.

On the Island enjoy great snorkelling and water sports or take the semi-submersible ride to see the spectacular coral and fish life. You'll enjoy a tasty barbecue lunch with a cold Fiji beer or other complimentary drinks.
