Half-Day Fiji Jet Ski Safari from Port Denarau

Your tour begins when you are picked up from your Denarau Resort in your complimentary transfer and taken to the Port Denarau Marina to where jet-ski adventure will begin.  If you are staying outside of Denarau make your own way to the marina. Meet at the sales desk where a safety briefing will be conducted and you will also receive your life jackets and snorkeling gear. Board one of the boats at the marina to cruise out the channel, meet the safari team and board the skis. Practice riding around a circuit, make any adjustments, then start the tour that goes to either Cloud9 or to Beachcomber Island (weather pending: note that there is more open water to ride over to Cloud9 so the tour goes there only in very calm conditions). Included in the tour price is landing fees and a juice/soft-drink at the destination – guests are welcome to bring their credit card for optional purchases (note that Cloud9 does not accept cash). After the rest stop at the destination for snorkeling and swimming the ride continues for the jet-ski journey back to Denarau Island. Meet the marine team, transfer back to the boat and cruise back into Port Denarau Marina, where your safari ends. Allow 30 minutes for preparation and 2.5 hours for the safari adventure.
