Northern Islands, Fiji

"We hope you will join us for a trip of a lifetime, during which you'll visit remote beaches, snorkel over incredible reefs, kayak to local villages, and experience the most breathtaking locations across Northern Fiji. The Tui Tai Expeditions takes guests to places they never imagined, the natural beauty of Fiji, and the kindness and warmth of the Fijian people. Tui Tai Expeditions is the premier adventure experience in the South Pacific.

Tui Tai Expeditions is on of the world's only truly all-inclusive expeditions. When you're enjoying a luxury-adventure expedition on Tui Tai, you don't ever have to think about the details of extra charges because there aren't any. We've designed our service to be all-inclusive. Not "all inclusive" as some us the term, followed by a bunch of fine print explaining what isn't included. We mean that everything is included: every service, mixed drink, glass of wine or beer, every meal, all scuba diving (even dive courses), snorkelling, kayaking, spa treatments - everything.

Once you board Tui Tai, the details are in our hands, and your only responsibility is to have the experience of a lifetime."

Our thoughts on Tui Tai Expeditions
The big, three mast motor-sailing schooner Tui Tai started life cruising out of Lautoka but she has always destined of greater things. In 2008 she finally realised her potential with the enormous changes made to convert her into a luxury live-aboard sailing cruiser in the waters of Northern Fiji. You should see her now! Her 12 suites, staterooms and cabins all have an ensuite bathroom complete with adjustable air-conditioning, ocean-viewing windows and hair dryers. In the public areas, if the sun is your thing, there are plush day beds to enjoy but if shade is your want, enjoy the private cabanas with day beds and spectacular views. The main deck has an open air lounge while the luxurious main lounge is furnished with day beds and couches, has a full bar, air-conditioning and an entertainment system. There's a spa and an outdoor kitchen and bar.

You may find Tui Tai listed as a live-aboard dive boat and yes, she does carry professional dive and snorkel gear and offers PADI scuba dive courses and dives on world-renowned dive sites with qualified dive instructors (all included in the price too) but she is far, far more than a simple dive boat - diving is no the primary focus of a Tui Tai Expedition, in fact, if you definitely don't want to dive or learn to dive, we can offer you a cruise package that excludes diving; spectacular snorkelling is always included. Tui Tai's people can take you to world-class surfing spots, there's a naturalist and Marine Biologist on board who gives evening presentations, there are kayaks and mountain bikes too. However, it's the cruise itinerary to beautiful off-the-beaten track places with spectacular natural scenery and the opportunity to mingle with some of the most naturally friendly people you will encounter anywhere on Earth, not to forget the superb amenities, service and excellent food on board ship, that makes the Tui Tai so unforgettable.

If you fancy a massage in the mist of a beautiful waterfall, no problem, the massage table and staff will be there. Fancy a cold drink after kayaking up a beautiful river, no problem either; Tui Tai's staff will have gone ahead anticipating your need. Age or fitness level is no barrier to enjoying a Tui Tai adventure.
