15-hour Layover in Fiji?I have a 15-hour layover in Fiji (Nadi) on my way to Australia. I get in at 5am and leave at 8pm, and I'd like to do something besides sit in the airport. Ideally I'd like to go snorkeling, but I don't know what day trips are available or if that's a realistic option.
Anyone have advice/recommendations? I'm sort of on a budget so if you have an idea of what your suggestions would cost, that'd be helpful.

2There are companies that wil take you out on a boat to one of the offshore islands for the day, where you can snorkel.
They serve you lunch, spend several hours letting you swim in that tropical turquoise water, then return to Denarau Marina
outside Nadi. Don't know the names of them offhand, but the Fiji Tourism Bureau should be able to help you out.

5In Fiji- probably not since it's an outgoing international flight and we are talking about life-in-the-slow-lane Fiji. Getting
through security and passport control could be just enough to miss your flight. Not to mention if the boat return to Denarau
is delayed. Do any boat tours return before 6p.m.?

7This place http://www.rafflesgateway.com/
is right opposite the airport and is a good place to have rest, shower, swim eat, drink.
They can also organise tours.Pretty sure you can get a "day use" rate there.
