Exploring one of Fiji’s beautiful coastlines is fun and easy in our sit-on-top, two-person sea kayaks. The adventure begins east of Pacific Harbour where the Navua River and the Deuba River have created a lush, thriving mangrove forest. Our guides will familiarize you with your paddle and kayak before venturing onto this coastal waterway.
Your journey begins with a relaxed paddle through the tunnels and tranquil waters of a mangrove forest. En route, you may spot some of the local denizens that make this unique ecosystem their home: mud lobsters, herons, harrier hawks, kingfishers, and fruit bats. As the calm waters of the mangroves give way to the ocean, sandy beaches beckon you to shore for a break. Your guides prepare lunch while you enjoy a cold drink, a refreshing swim and a peaceful rest in the sun. Afterward, it’s time to set a course for the open sea.
Leaving the mainland behind, you’ll paddle the warm, blue waters of Rovodrau Bay with dramatic views of Beqa and Yanuca Islands rising in the distance. Your guides will lead you to a nearby reef, where you can snorkel with a kaleidoscope of tropical fish among the brilliantly colored corals. Continuing on, your course takes you to the white sand beaches and rolling waves of Pacific Harbour and the conclusion of your journey.
