Package Itinerary

The beauty of Fiji lies in its diversity - over 330 islands waiting to be explored.

Discovery cruises are designed to offer you an authentic and personal experience of the South Pacific. Cruise beyond the Yasawa Islands to Levuka on the island of Ovalau. This quiet historic town with its stately backdrop of 19th Century colonial architecture and waterfront promenades is a time capsule of colonial rule. Swim in the Bouma Waterfall lagoon on the garden island of Taveuni and stand on the 180th Meridian – the arbitrary Dateline between today and tomorrow.

Our journey takes you to Savusavu’s extinct volcanic crater, hot springs, and thriving markets. Explore picture-perfect coral cays for snorkeling, glass-bottom boat, and scuba diving opportunities and discover the remote Northern islands of Fiji.

Day 1 Tuesday:

Tivua Island Welcome aboard with a complimentary fruit punch and welcome Salu Salu (lei) as we set sail for our Fiji Island adventure. This afternoon visits Captain Cook Cruises' own exclusive island “Tivua” where you can enjoy a twilight swim, snorkel, or relax on the beach. Tonight, enjoy our special Welcome Dinner and Crew Introduction.

Day 2 Wednesday:

Levuka this morning we arrive at the port of Levuka on the island Ovalau, situated off the northeast coast of the main island. Levuka was the first European settlement in Fiji and became the center of British colonial administration and trade. At its peak over 50 hotels catered to the thirst of sailors in port and the town gained a wild reputation.

In 1888 the capital was moved to Suva on the main island, and Levuka’s notoriety gradually waned. Passengers are invited to join an optional tour of this now quiet historic town with its stately backdrop of 19th Century colonial architecture and waterfront promenades. In the afternoon we visit the children of Marist Convent Primary School.

Day 3 Thursday:

Makogai, Clam research & Old Leper colony Start your day at Makogai Island with a traditional Fijian ceremony before joining the 1-hour walking tour of the Makogai leper colony and clam research station. There will be an opportunity in the afternoon to return to the island to visit the local primary school children who will entertain you with their songs and dance.

Day 4 Friday:

Savusavu -This morning we arrive at Savusavu, the second largest town on the second biggest island in Fiji, Vanua Levu. Savusavu is positioned on an extinct volcanic crater. Choose from a selection of optional tours including river tubing or a trip to the world-famous Justin Hunter pearl farm. Later this afternoon we cruise to the swimming beach in Savusavu Bay.

Day 5 Saturday:

Bouma Waterfall/Naselesele This morning we disembark on the western side of Taveuni Island - the “Garden Island” of Fiji. The optional bus tour takes you to the beautiful Bouma Waterfall where you can swim and relax in the beautiful setting. This evening we will be visiting Naselesele Village to enjoy the tastes of Fiji with a traditional ‘lovo” (earth oven) feast where we share fresh local seafood, and meat succulent tropical fruits. Then dance to the drum of the Meke (dance) and a kava ceremony.

Day 6 Sunday:

Wairiki, Dateline & Whispering Tide For an experience not to be missed, join the special choral church service at Wairiki on the western side of Taveuni. Taveuni Island lies on the 180th Meridian, the arbitrary line between today and tomorrow. After the service, our crew will take you to the famous Dateline Meridian where you can literally stand with one foot in the past and one foot in the future. This afternoon we visit Whispering Tide for swimming and snorkeling before our scenic cruise along the southwest coast of Vanua Levu navigating Bligh Water.

Day 7 Monday:

Nananu-I-Ra, Viti Levu Bay, North Coast of Viti Levu Cruising southwest from Vanua Levu we arrive at Nananu-i-Ra on the northern coast of Viti Levu for our customary swim, snorkel, and beachcombing or just a lazy morning to enjoy our beach visit. After lunch, there is our last opportunity ashore before we begin our homeward journey. This evening don your sulu (sarong) and join all the celebrations of our Pacific Island Night Finale.
