Island Resort Connections
High-speed catamarans getting you to your island resort in style
South Sea Cruises offer seamless, fast transfers to Mamanuca and Yasawa Island resorts for travellers staying in the islands.
We offer pre-booked coach transfers to/from Nadi International Airport* as well as Nadi, Wailoaloa and Denarau hotels to/from Port Denarau where guests board our vessels for the transfer to the islands.
Our modern catamarans have multiple air-conditioned lounges, outside viewing decks and fully licensed bars, meaning you’ll feel on holiday enroute to your island escape! Resort connections depart Port Denarau and return from the Mamanuca Island resorts several times a day, every day, Yasawa resort connections operate 4 times a week. Please see our "Days of Operation" and the Resort Connection Timetables below for full information.
*Airport transfers are an addtional cost (included in your price once booked). Please select Nadi Airport when booking your transfer to ensure the coach transfer is reserved for you.
What you need to know
South Sea Cruises have a fleet of fast, modern vessels, specifically designed for cruising the Fiji Islands. The catamarans each have two air-conditioned lounges, outer viewing decks and fully licensed bars with drinks and snacks available for purchase. A full commentary is provided as you cruise.
Check in time
Since the check in time at most resorts is between midday and 2pm we recommend arriving guests have a leisurely start to their day and catch the mid-afternoon departures from Port Denarau. These departures are generally less crowded and will save you waiting around for your room to become available upon arrival at your island resort.
Check in is required at Port Denarau 30 minutes prior to the vessel departure.
Nadi Airport to Island Resort (or return)
If you are booking a resort connection service to/from an island resort, we can arrange to pick you up (or drop you off) at Nadi Airport to make your travel nice and seamless. We will welcome you with a big 'Bula!' smile and then direct you to your driver who will transfer you to Port Denarau in time to meet our vessel departure (or the reverse for clients wishing to transfer from an Island Resort to Nadi Airport).
Pick up/drop off from your Nadi, Wailoaloa or Denarau Hotel
Transfers from most Nadi, Wailoaloa and Denarau hotels to Port Denarau for our resort connection transfers are available free of charge. You must however advise us where you're staying when you book your resort connection to ensure your pick up is reserved. If you do not do this then getting to the marina in time for our vessel departure is your responsibility. Transfers back to Nadi, Wailoaloa and Denarau hotels & resorts are also available. Coaches will be there to meet each vessel arrival at Port Denarau.
