South Sea Cruises offer seamless, fast transfers to Mamanuca Island resorts for travellers staying in the islands. We transport visitors from Nadi Airport as well as Nadi and Denarau hotels to Denarau Marina where guests board our vessels for the transfer to the islands. Our modern catamarans have multiple lounges, outer viewing decks and fully licensed bars, meaning you’ll feel on holiday, even enroute to your island escape! Resort connections depart Denarau Marina and island resorts several times a day, every day.*

*Airport transfers cost addtional. Please contact our reservations team for further information.

How we get you to your Island Resort

Our vessels

South Sea Cruises have a fleet of fast, modern vessels, specifically designed for cruising the Fiji Islands. The catamarans each have two air-conditioned lounges, outer viewing decks and fully licensed bars with drinks and snacks available for purchase. A full commentary is provided as you cruise.  

Check in time

Since the check in time at most resorts is between midday and 2pm we recommend arriving guests have a leisurely start to their day and catch the mid-afternoon departures. You are on holiday after all! These departures are generally less crowded and will save you waiting around for your room to become available upon arrival at your resort.

Check in is at Denarau Marina 30 minutes prior to departure.

Pick up/drop off from your Nadi or Denarau Hotel

Transfers from most Nadi accommodation to the Marina for resort connection departures are available free of charge. You must however book your resort connection and advise us where you're staying. If you do not do this then getting to the marina in time for our vessel departure is your responsibility. Transfers back to Nadi properties are also available. Coaches meet each vessel arrival at the marina. 

Nadi Airport to Island Resort

If you are booking a resort connection service to/from an island resort, we can pick you up or drop you off at the airport to make things nice and seamless for you. We offer an affordable Meet and Greet service - our staff will welcome you with a big 'Bula!' smile, check your travel documents and then direct you to your transport to Denarau Marina. 

Conditions of Carriage

Whilst South Sea Cruises endeavours to ensure all vessels operate on time the company cannot be held liable for any missed connections with flights due to late arrival at Nadi International Airport check in counter. It is recommended that passengers have travel insurance to cover this.
