Navua River by Longboat

Experience Fiji's local flavors and traditions in a unique new way during this cruise up the Navua River by long boat, along with a kava ceremony, folk dancing and lunch in a local village.


Enjoy a scenic drive through Suva, en route to the Navua River, where you will embark an open longboat for a scenic journey upriver. Your cruise will be highlighted by endless mountain ranges, a thick tropical rain forest abounding with bird life, deep gorges, cascading waterfalls, and exotic fauna and flora. You can take a refreshing swim in one of the pools created by the river or under the Magic Waterfall during one of your stops.


Visit Raiwaqa Village, located on a 14-mile-long island at a height of almost 1,000 feet above sea level, you will be welcomed by warriors and villagers with a traditional Fijian kava ceremony and after, tour of the village. Along the way, you will learn about the village's history, native crops and medicinal plants. You will also have an opportunity to mingle with the villagers and purchase local handicrafts. Watch war dances performed by the men and typical folk dances by the village women. Why not join in and learn some new moves? You'll also be treated to a typical Fijian lunch cooked in an underground oven.


Note: Walking on this tour is mainly at guest’s discretion. We suggest you wear swim attire under clothing, proper sun protection, insect repellent, and bring a towel from the ship. Those participating in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility. Due to island protocol, conservative attire is required to visit the Fijian Villages; knees and shoulders should be covered and hats or caps must be removed while in the village. Participating children must be 3 years of age or older. The island buses do not have air-conditioning, and are the best available. Australian or Fijian currency will be needed to purchase any additional items.
