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

Depart the pier by local island bus for the 1-hour long scenic drive through Suva, then continue past Namuamua en route to Navua. Upon arrival at the Navua River, you will embark an open longboat for a scenic and breathtaking 45-minute 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.

Upon reaching the isolated 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 the chiefs and villagers with a traditional Fijian kava ceremony (guests will not drink kava, but will participate in the ceremony). After the ceremony, you will take a guided walking tour of the village. Along the way, you will learn about the island's history, and coconut husking and scraping. You will also have an opportunity to mingle with the natives, purchase local handicrafts and join in the village entertainment.

Next, you will embark your longboat for the return cruise to Navua, where you can take a refreshing swim in the Magic Waterfall; Navua's largest waterfall.

At the conclusion of your longboat portion of the return journey, you will re-board the island bus and transfer back to the pier.

Please note: While there is limited walking, the tour can be strenuous. You will spend approximately 1-hour on the local bus and 45-minutes on the longboats; in each direction. The seats in the longboats are wooden and have no back rests. This tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. A packed lunch, including a salad, roll or vegetables, including a soft drink or bottled water is included; however there is no seating provided and guests must stand or sit on the ground. Guests are encouraged to wear swim attire under a cover-up, comfortable flat shoes, sunscreen, and bring a towel, rain jacket or change of clothes with you in case you get wet on the longboat. Those participating in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
