Welcome aboard our ultra-luxury Discovery Yacht. Settle into your suite in the sweet ‘Sugar City’ of Lautoka. Located in the heart of the sugar cane industry, Fiji’s second-biggest settlement opens up a world of blissful beaches, dense jungle and the culturally rich Fijian life.
Please book your flight to arrive into Nadi prior to 02:00 PM.
Day 2 Yasawa Islands, Sawa I Lau Island (B,L,D)
This dreamy group of volcanic islands was the setting for the Blue Lagoon movies (both the 1949 and 1980 versions). Until 1987 the Yasawas were closed to land-based tourism and could only be viewed from a boat.
Discovery: Join your Discovery Team in Sawa-i-Lau, an island famous for its limestone caves, which are accessed by climbing stairs from the beach, passing a small door and then jumping into the larger cave’s pool. The second cave and pool can only be reached by swimming at low tide through an underwater tunnel.
Day 3 Tavenui Island (B,L,D)
Taveuni is called the ‘Garden Isle’ for good reason. Bouma National Heritage Park comprises more than a third of the island, with the Waitabu Marine Park on the north-east coast. Activities are mostly nature-based, from swimming under waterfalls in the jungle to diving at renowned sites such as Eel Reef and the Great White Wall in the Somosomo Strait.
Discovery: Swim under waterfalls in the jungle, or dive at renowned sites such as Eel Reef and the Great White Wall in the Somosomo Strait.
Day 4 Lakeba Island > Lau Islands (B,L,D)
Lakeba is the home of the Tui Nayan (chief). Historically, warlords from Tonga based themselves here to conquer much of Fiji in the 19th century, lending a Tongan influence to many aspects of Lakeban culture.
With no land-based tourism, Lau Islands is the least visited part of Fiji, having preserved most clan traditions. In contrast, the limestone landscape has been eroded into dramatic islets and arches.
Day 5 Vava’u, Tonga (B,L,D)
Vava’u, an archipelago of around 40 coral islands in the south Pacific Ocean, is a captivating combination of lush vegetation, sandy beaches, abundant marine life and underwater caves. Mount Talau towers over the main island, offering panoramic views. Local traditions involve woven leaves from the pandanus tree, production of Noni juice and extraction of vanilla essence.
Discovery: Explore the islands’ clear blue waters in a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, or relax on one of the beautiful beaches.
Day 6 Hunga Tonga (B,L,D)
The world’s newest island is unofficially known as Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai, named after the two islands it lies between. It formed in December 2014 after a submarine volcano erupted, sending steam, ash and rock into the air. When the ash finally settled, it interacted with the seawater and solidified, creating the new island.
Discovery: Snorkel, kayak or stand-up paddleboard.
Day 7 Fulanga Island, Fiji (B,L,D)
Fulaga is a narrow crescent of reef limestone in Fiji’s Southern Lau Group. Adored for its beauty and lovely lagoon, the island has three villages: Muanaicake, Muanaira and Naividamu. The locals are skilled carvers, known for making outrigger canoes and wooden bowls, with some of their handiwork available for purchase during your visit.
Discovery: Walk through the villages and watch the locals carve outrigger canoes and wooden bowls, or glide through the waters in a kayak, stand-up paddleboard or enjoy hikes around the island.
Day 8 Beqa Island (B,L,D)
Surrounded by one of the world’s largest barrier reefs, Beqa is untouched, with no cars or roads on the island. The lagoon has sunken wrecks, wall dives and coral-lined tunnels to explore underwater. See a wide range of pelagic fish, sharks, blue ribbon eels and octopus, with many of the dive sites just minutes from shore.
Day 9 Lautoka (B)
Disembark where it all began and bid farewell to your Captain and crew of the World’s First Discovery Yacht.
