Enjoy magnificent cuisine and personalised service as you cruise to pristine beaches and remote islands with palm-fringed villages. Bask in the warm lagoons, savour the bounty of the lovo feast, dance to the drums of the meke and sleep to the sound of surf on a distant reef.

Aboard the Reef Endeavour we will show you the Fiji Archipelago which has more than 330 islands scattered across 230,000 square kilometres. The exotic Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands lie to the north west of Nadi, the gateway to Fiji. It's a breathtakingly beautiful cruising passage through hundreds of tropical volcanic islands and spectacular coral gardens.

An ancient culture, rich in myth and legend, the Fijian lifestyle is beautiful in its simplicity. Visit timeless villages, untouched by 21st-century technology and experience the unique local customs and ceremonies. Reef Endeavour's small size means she can negotiate remote reefs, islands and shallow bays where bigger ships just cannot go. Yet her innovative design provides extra comforts including swimming pool and spa pools. The on-board guides and dive master will introduce you to the beauty of the islands and reefs. Four on-board reef vessels, including glass bottom boat, snorkelling and dive tenders, bring you as close as possible to the amazing world we travel.
