Highlights of this cruise:
Auckland’s waterside location has fostered the locals’ love affair with the sea, and has earned itself the nickname “the City of Sails”. With more boats per capita than any other country in the world, it truly is a water lover’s paradise.
Suva is a hot and steamy place city full of colour and diverse cultures. Suva sits on the southeast shores of mountainous Viti Levu ("Great Fiji"), largest of the over 800 islands which comprise the Republic of Fiji. It has a multi-racial population mix comprising mainly Fijians, Indians, Europeans, Chinese and South Pacific Islanders. Local folk traditions remain strong, like fire walks and welcoming ceremonies, wood-carving and the fabrication of tree-bark cloth.
There are many churches, temples, mosques, bush-walks and gardens, including Thurston gardens at the eastern end of town. This is also where the Fiji Museum is located showing the island's proud history with its impressive collection of war canoes. Next to this is the home of the President of the Republic of Fiji.
Dravuni island is a volcanic island, located in the Kadavu group of islands in Fiji. It is the most northern of several inhabited islands within the Great Astrolabe Reef, with a population of approximately 200 native Fijians, who live in the small central village. It is a beautiful location, with perfect weather and a main beach lined with tall palms, crystal clear blue water and spectacular white sand.
Guests to the island have the opportunity to learn about island living from its villagers. For the more energetic, a trek up the slopes of Dravuni's highest peak gives fabulous views of the surrounding islands.
Dravuni is home to a research facility which is currently being used by Coral Cay Conservation (CCC) as the main base for conducting surveys on the reefs.
