Return Details

Returns to original departure point
South Sea Island—part of the Mamanuca Islands of Fiji—is a small piece of paradise located near Port Denarau. Whether you select just a few hours or a full day on the South Sea Island, find plenty to do with unlimited use of the island facilities.

After hotel pickup (full-day tour only), you’re transferred to Port Denarau to board your vessel for the short cruise. On arrival, spend your time relaxing or make use of non-motorized water activities available such as kayaking and windsurfing.

Don a mask and flippers for fabulous snorkeling opportunities, even at low tide. Or, if you’d like to explore the coral gardens up close, search for ‘Nemo’ aboard the semi-submersible boat for a ride under the waves. Upgrade your tour to include an introductory dive or certified dive in the Marine Sanctuary, depending on your scuba level.

Back on dry land, join a volleyball game, laze on the white-sand beach or be entertained by a 'Meke' performance of traditional dance (except Sundays). If there’s time, get a massage or take an optional scenic cruise around the other Mamanuca Islands (additional cost; payable direct).

Enjoy unlimited beer, wine, and soft drinks throughout the day. When it’s time for lunch, dig into a barbecue accompanied by salads (if option selected). Your tour ends with return transport.

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.

Tour was great! Quick and easy departure and information was well communicated. The island is small but relaxing. Great meal and nice cold beverages. There was even a show! Beach is beautiful but rough on your feet as its pieces of coral and even in the water. Great snorkeling location!

Gorgeous spot to spend a day at, rustic natural setting lovely staff, slick operation, great food and the snorkeling was amazing. Superb family day out
Nice Visit While It Lasted
, Nov 2019
This tour took us the stunning, photo-worthy South Sea Island and we got to participate in a small selection of activities. While the island itself had a beautiful view and clear water, we wished the time spent at the island was longer. Majority of the day was spent on the cruise-boat to the island and back to mainland. On the trip back, we stopped at numerous other resorts/islands which became quite tiring and somewhat frustrating, since we would have preferred a more direct trip after the big day. After arriving at the island, there were lots activities offered, however we found that we could only participate in one or two, which was quite disappointing. The snorkelling was enjoyable, however we felt rushed and we missed other inclusions such as the private snorkelling tour and the glass-bottom boat. Additionally, it felt like there were a lot of people on the tour, and it felt a bit more ‘commercialised’ than some of the other traditional/local tours we went on. These points aside, the day was still enjoyable. The trip to the island was direct (compared to the trip back), the food provided was delicious and the snorkelling and swimming was very fun. While we did enjoyed this tour, I probably wouldn’t recommend it to everyone. As long as they are aware that the transfer to and from the island is quite lengthy and the opportunity to participate in a large selection of included activities are quite slim (due to the timing of the transfers, there isn’t a lot of time spent on the island itself). Nonetheless, the island itself provided beautiful views, a variety of activities to participate in and a good lunch. 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.
Good day out but do not take combo package

The boat ride to the island was around 30 minutes. It was crowded with hardly any place to sit. The crew was nice though. The island itself is very small catered only for day trip tourists. Food was average. Go for a swim as the water is nice and warm. After lunch we hopped in the boat again. The boat picks and drops off passengers and your part of this process. I would recommend either doing a full day cruise or try another cruise.
good service

I missed the picked up cause Viator didn't send me the exactly picked up time then the staff of Southsea cruise was very helpful and help me re schedule the half day cruise.The pick up bus was luxury bit bus and the vessel is new and safe, all the staffs are very lovely and friendly.
Full day cruise
, Jan 2019
There are plenty of island cruises to choose from.We opted to take the full day cruise. What is beneficial about this trip is that you get to the island quick which means you have more time to spend there. Also that all you can drink is included, which some of the other trips does not include.Issues I had with this cruise was:1. The introduction at the island was way too long. There are a couple of things one can do, and they were taking too long to explain all of the items.2. There are combo cruises / half day cruises. And our snorkeling got delayed by probably 2 hours (Fiji Time) because they were waiting for the half day cruise people to return from the glass bottom submarine to join. Because the intro took so long, the first trip out took long. We opted to do snorkeling first, and then the afternoon session do the submarine - but then that got rained out.The coral in the area is also not the best. There were better dives we had.Make sure when you get there to run for beach chairs. We sat and listen to the briefing, and after that all the good spots were taken

We had an awesome day on south sea island, very friendly staff. Great bbq and loved the lunch entertainment.
Great way to spend a layover!
, Sep 2018
I arrived in Fiji at 6:30 am and had a lot of time to spare til my next flight at 9 pm. I booked this tour and got picked up at the hotel right in front of the airport (and dropped off later as well). Everbody was amazingly friendly and went out of their way to assist me with anything. The island itself is just beautiful and perfect to relax with heaps of complementary activities and drinks. The included lunch was delicious as well. I can definitely recommend this tour!
