For lots of fun under the sun, you can't beat a day at South Sea Island. A day trip to South Sea Island is an easy 30 minute ferry ride from Denarau Marina with South Sea Cruises. 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 FREE use of non-motorized water sports equipment, including kayaking and sailing. Discover the underwater world with hours of snorkelling or if you want to stay dry, jump on board the semi-submersible coral viewer. Make sure you keep an eye out for Nemo! A tasty BBQ buffet lunch and beer, wine and soft drinks are included while ashore. 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. Introductory diving (additional cost) 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.

Traveler Tips

  • "What is beneficial about this trip is that you get to the island quick which means you have more time to spend there." See review
  • "Just be mindful that it is less of an “all-day tour” and more like a couple of hours on the island, with the rest of the day getting to and from the island." See review

Definitely misunderstood...
, Aug 2022
Definitely misunderstood what to expect on this day trip. Had expected to be an island tour and not just left on one island for the day. Sand is not the nice white sand as per photos and has lots of rocks and corals. Full of lots of drunk people.
Food bad Island just ok
, Jul 2022
The island was not quite as expected. The water in the picture was definitely tinted blue. The bbq was about a 3/10. The beach was wrecked coral and there were no shells to collect since they were already taken for all the necklaces they give away at the hotel and sell at Jacks
Great day out
, Jul 2022
This was a great day out, relaxing on an Island doing nothing! Just a short boat ride over to South Sea Island and then met by beautiful people. Lunch was wonderful. Entertainment provided was spot on. Beer was cold. Snorkelling was great.

Great scuba!
, Jul 2022
South Sea Island was a seriously beautiful place. The island is small and can be explored in about 30 minutes or less, but the landscape and views are incredible. The staff are very welcoming and we loved all the activities. We got to try scuba diving (my first time) and our instructor made me feel very at ease. A fantastic place to spend the day!
Great value for money. I recommend
, Jul 2022
What a day. Great value for money. Some tours are more expensive but i don’t think they could offer anything better. Pick up by coach arrived on time. Arrived at the terminal to boat a lovely ferry to the island. We were welcome by singers on arrival and then the fun began. Great pool. There will is a submarine that goes on the reef with so many fish. I was nervous to snorkel but the gentle staff talked me through it and i enjoyed the rest of the day snorkeling, swimming in the ocean and kayaking. A beautiful lunch was served more singing more of everything and time to leave this beautiful island. cons: Have cash before you get to the terminal as we only just made boarding time and didn’t. Free soft drinks, water and beer. I call free beer a con but my husband was stoked

Tour company forgot to...
, May 2022
Tour company forgot to pick us up and viator noted that it was a glitch in thier system. Viator rfunded the trip but lost several hours of our vacation due to poor communication. Very frustrating
Over priced and disappointing
, Apr 2022
Island itself isn’t great for the cost. On top of it if you don’t know swimming it’s pretty much worthless as you would just be trying to snorkel on the rocky (very sharp broken pieces to walk) shores of the beach in the shallow waters. If you are a vegetarian food is very ordinary Free drinks is pathetic with opened wine bottles served all day. Canned beers were still ok The only positive for non-swimmers was kayaking but that too has a waiting time if someone’s already using it as they have very few kayaks Overall a very disappointing, over rated and over priced tour. Don’t recommend this at all

Fun in the SUN
, Apr 2022
We booked 2 trips with Viator prior to travel and the process was easy and hassle free. We had a sensational time especially at South Sea Island. One of the highlights of the holiday. Great comfortable transfers, beautiful location, great activities and entertainment with all-inclusive lunch and drinks for the day. Highly recommend it.

Day trip
, Mar 2022
Good day out, food and staff were great but snorkelling the reef was a little disappointing. Transport was good.
, Feb 2022
Ok experience, but nothing special. Facilities are adequate, but much of the beach is rough coral. Snorkeling again is just ok.
