PROGRAMME

Day Begins at 09.30am

Our day starts at Port Denarau, the exciting central hub for marine activity in Fiji. Once we’re all aboard we can drop the lines, hoist the sails and leave the busy main Island for our ultimate Fijian day out on the water. 

Relax on Wanaka’s spacious decks or under the sunshade as we glide effortlessly over the aquamarine waters towards the magical islands of Malolo Lailai , Tavarua, Namotu and out to the outer reefs. 

Our professional local crew will entertain and inform, with their knowledge of the local marine life, history and folk law. Look out for dolphins, turtles, flying fish and seabirds. 

Our first stop is the world famous snorkeling sand quay where the calm clear waters and abundant fish life make for an amazing snorkeling experience. From first timers to veteran divers, our crew will ensure everyone has the best and safest experience possible.

Just 10 minutes away is the picturesque Malolo lailai Island where a sumptuous Fijian BBQ lunch with all the trimmings is laid on.  An Ice cold Fiji bitter, a refreshing cocktail or fresh fruit juice can be purchased from the world famous Island bar. Then there’s time to relax on the beach, swim, or stroll along the white coral sand around Musket Cove and Plantation Island resorts.

With the South East trade wind filling in it’s time to weigh anchor, hoist the sails and again experience the magic of a performance sailing catamaran as we head back towards Port Denarau. If conditions permit the crew are happy to let you try your hand at steering the boat or trimming the sails.

Return to Port Denarau by 5.30pm.

Activities

 

FISHING

As soon as we clear the harbor entrance at Port Denarau the trolling lines go out and it’s not unusual to have a couple of nice fat Waloo or even a Giant Trevally hooked up before we reach our first stop at Malolo lailai island. We also have a few hand lines onboard for our junior fishermen. For the more serious anglers, it’s best to check with our crew on booking for the best fishing options.

SNORKELING

Book a day sail with Coral Cats and discover the amazing sand quay at Musket Cove where the calm clear waters and abundant fish life make for an unforgettable snorkeling experience. From first timers to veteran divers, our crew will ensure everyone has the best and safest experience possible. 

By far Fiji’s best snorkelling on a day sail package is with Coral Cats Sailing.

THE CORAL CATS EXPERIENCE VIDEO

According to Fijian legend, the great chief Lutunasobasoba led his people across the seas to the new land of Fiji. Today you can re-live the discovery as you sail across some of those waters on an adventure day sail with Coral Cats.

Operating out of Port Denarau, right next to all major hotels, a sunset cruise with loved ones or workmates is the ideal way to kick start or cap off a unforgettable holiday in Fiji.

For larger groups, an exclusive charter is also a cost effective way to experience our fantastic day sail, snorkeling and fishing package (refer to Day Sailing above). And if you are staying on one of the Islands, we can arrange to pick you up from your resort although a travel fee may apply.

We can provide professional catering for all our cruises or you are welcome to B.Y.O.

TESTIMONIALS

"Day Trip To Paradise"

We booked this through the tour guide located at the hotel and were not disappointed. We had 4 adults and 2 kids (4 and 5). We were picked up from the hotel and were off sailing on the catamaran in no time. Had a snorkeling session then hit the beautiful Musket Cove. What a place, simply stunning. After a fantastic BBQ lunch, we then headed to a sand bar out in the middle of the ocean for some more snorkeling or simply walking along the bar.

The crew were a great bunch of lads and the whole family had a fantastic day. Cheers guys.

"Ask For This Tour!"

After much probing and several visits to tour guides we were given a brochure to this tour group. I am thrilled we did it although a bit pricy it was so worth it! Pick up form hotel driven down to the prt , leave around 9 on the catamaran for an hour plus sail our to the reef to snorkel. The boat crew are fantastic, BYO as a tip, and load up on the sunscreen -SPF 50+ you get roasted! Snorkel gear, guides, life vests , flippers all provided. After the 1st snorkel we headed to Musket cove (next to Plantation island) for lunch a bit of exploring swimming, a cocktail or two. Then it's off to sand var island for the second snorkel, and then home. It was a fantastic day out on the water got to meet a few other lovely people (max of 30 on the boat which is great) and the crew were amazing with the kids teaching them how to make things with palm leaves. Really wonderful experience!! Highly recommend

Words about their Day Sail Fiji experience from a few of our recent guests.. Vinaka!!! Coral Cats Sailing Fiji.

"Awesome and Friendly"

We traveled with our 3 kids (13, 12 & 7 year old) and we all enjoyed this trip. The crew were very relaxed and friendly. It was a small group so it was easy to interact with everyone. They genuinely wanted to make us happy and went out of their way. A girl on board was celebrating her 16th birthday so they organised for a cake, it was great. 
The views from Musket Cove were incredible and I'm glad we stopped there. Then we went on to more snorkeling and again, God's creation was not disappointing. It was a GREAT day and the kids loved it. Would highly recommend.

We just happened to pick this tour without knowing it was no 1 on Tripadvisor. We lucked in. This is a fab tour made so special by the helpful but not over the top staff .

They have just got everything right. We were on a two month holiday and this was the best day of the whole two months.
