*As we endeavor to accommodate as many customers as possible by occasionally changing our boat departure times to allow for flight delays for arriving aircraft, the departure time is subject to change slightly between 7.30 am and 8.30 am. Departure times from the island to the mainland may vary from 10.30 am to 11 am depending on the needs of the in house guests on the day to account for early flight departures, the vessel will leave by 11 am if there are 3 pm flight departures, guests with flights departing Fiji before 3 pm require a specific private charter, or "day before" departure. At other times scheduled maintenance or sea conditions could delay the scheduled departure time.
We ask you to consider airport delays and customs clearance when considering your transfer options.
