Escape to Paradise

Escape to Paradise

From NZD $4,032

Description

This amazing cruise experience combines the 3 and 4 night itineraries, covering the full length of the magnificent Yasawa Island chain as well as Modriki and the Sacred Islands.

You’ll have the opportunity to see and do so much on this cruise, that you’ll come away with memories from a holiday of a lifetime. You’ll see mother nature at her best, be welcomed into the friendliest culture in the world, discover an underwater world of vibrant life, laze on countless golden sand beaches and luxuriate in warm lagoons. To put it simply, you’ll be transported to paradise!

To ensure you have the best possible cruise experience, we use ‘flexible cruising’. What this means is that we’re prepared to alter our itineraries, either when necessary, or when some exciting opportunity arises. For example, if there is some special event taking part in a local Yasawa Village, which you really should see, then we will alter our cruise route to take you there. Or, if we think that that our destined anchorage for the night is not going to be as sheltered as a bay on the other side of the island, we’ll up-anchor and move. Cruising through a region of coral lagoons and isolated island anchorages is weather dependent and so, at times, our itineraries may need to be altered. However we’ll always endeavor to ensure all of the highlights of each cruise are enjoyed by our guests.
