Notes and Information

Trip Planning and Helpful Information about Tui Tai Expeditions A typical Tui Tai cruise is almost a contradiction in terms. Depending on prevailing conditions, an unexpected invite from the locals or a far-off pod of whales breaching, each expedition creates its own adventure along the way. Getting to and from the dock, however, is another story. We answer a lot of the same questions, and decided to make it easy on future passengers with this list of R&R FAQs: Where do we board? Seven-night expeditions depart and return on Mondays at Natewa Bay, a quick 30-minute drive from Savusavu on the island of Vanua Levu. Our five-night outings have two options. You can board on Monday at Natewa Bay and disembark Saturday in Taveuni, or board Wednesday in Taveuni and disembark Monday in Savusavu. How do I get to Savusavu or Taveuni? Both are popular getaway spots, and it's easy to get to their respective airports. There are several flights daily, and the simplest way to check schedules and airfares, and book your flight, is to visit www.pacificsun.com.fj. If your Tui Tai expedition is departing from Savusavu, you can also fly into the Labasa airport. It's on the same island, and is a 90-minute, $65 cab ride from Savusavuwe'll help you make arrangements. How do I get to the ship? Tui Tai provides free transportation to the ship from Savusavu and Taveuni airports and resorts, and will return you to your destination of choice after the cruise, as well. When do we depart? We tend to operate on a modified version of island-time, so the answer is simple: We don't leave until everyone is safely aboard, which is usually in the afternoon. The idea is to be flexible, fun and as stress-free as possible, and we encourage guests to arrive any time after 9:00am. We choose scenic, remote locations for boarding. The sooner you're aboard, the sooner you can start enjoying the Tui Tai experience, even if we're still moored. When do we disembark? Checkout time at the end of your journey is typically 8:00am, but we're flexible. Early flight? We'll get you out of here ahead of schedule. Time to kill on travel day? On Saturdays in Taveuni, we can usually arrange for you to stay aboard through the afternoon. Please check with us ahead of time, and we'll do everything we can to simplify your schedule. This all sounds great, but what if I need a bit of help? Just get in touch! Our goal is for every passenger's experience with us to be a seamless, rejuvenating one, and the Tui Tai touch extends beyond the dock. We're happy to help with travel arrangements as much as we canwe do it for guests all the time. Tui Tai Classic Adventure/Culture Itinerary - Some call it an ITINERARY, We call it a blueprint for bliss. The classic Tui Tai expedition itinerary is ever-evolving, as we expand and fine-tune our onboard experience to show guests the absolute best activities, island tours, dive and snorkel sites, and cultural experiences the South Pacific has to offer. Our expeditions, which launch weekly for five- or seven-night cruises, have a common structure, but each outing has its own unique rhythm and flow. A spontaneous invitation from a local villager, dolphin or whale sighting, discovery of an unexplored dive site or rumor of killer waves the next break over can set us moving in exciting and unforeseen new directions. Highlights of Every Trip Whether five or seven nights, most Tui Tai expeditions include: True Cultural Immersion Aboard Tui Tai, you'll experience the Pacific Cultural Triangle firsthand.

Lonely Planet Travel Guide raved, "[Tui Tai's] snorkeling and diving sites are some of the world's best." enjoy the Tui Tai Touch Our onboard crew of 18 warm, hospitable native Fijians grew up in the same remote island villages we visit. They're proud of their islands and culture, and are happy to welcome you as part of their family. Renowned travel writer Tim Neville once suggested, "The Tui Tai crew have only one purpose: to make sure you go to sleep each night swearing you just spent the best day of your life." Make a difference while you're here At Tui Tai, we believe it's our responsibility to give back to the people that make Fiji such a remarkable place, and charitable work with indigenous local people is an integral part of every trip.

Gain exclusive access Tui Tai is large enough to afford guests consummate luxury, yet small enough to sail to remote locations where other, larger boats simply won't fit. Take the Ringgold islands, a scattered series of tiny volcanic atolls with beautiful sandy beaches and black rocks. You'll hike to a summit in the morning and kayak within the crater in the afternoon, a remote travel experience accessible only with Tui Tai.
