A Home Away From Home
Fun activities for everyone…
For those that love adventures and fishing all in one, will certainly not be able to find a sport that is so challenging as Hand line fishing. As of July 2016 Whales Tale have ceased this activity as part of the day cruise activity.
We are a company that is very aware of the environment and we look long term at Schooner Island where we have been taking our treasured guests over many years..We want you to continue to enjoy the island for the next 30 years.The damage the nylon lines and the anchor to our coral reefs was quiet significant on an every day basis;the catching of our stocks of small fry (juvenile fish) that were being caught and not being allowed to mature and restock our waters.Long term we want our coral reefs to grow and our fish to grow to adults and produce more stocks of fish.
We believe the entire family will enjoy snorkelling and seeing our beautiful coral in Schooners Islands pristine environment and setting in the future..
Schooner Island and it’s environment is a work in progress for the enjoyment of our day trip guests and Global Gaming Affiliate ..

whale’s tale adventure snorkell
If you have ever wanted to explore the world underwater, then there is no better place than taking one of our snorkeling cruises. We take you away from Schooner Island so you can truly see what lies beneath instead of just the animals that call the coastline home. We take in several different locations that will allow you and your family the opportunity to find an array of various animals that live in the sea.
All daytime snorkelling trips will be served lunch once we return to the resort.
Whale’s tale fish feeding adventure
We all love taking our kids to petting zoos on land. How about taking them to Schooner Island where they can actually feed all kinds of Fijian tropical fish. The kids will love seeing the various types of fish come right up to eat as they feed them. What better way to truly give your children and your family an exciting adventure that will ensure memories for years to come. The thrill of seeing tropical fish up close whether at the resort or for those that desire more excitement can entertain the action found with dive feeding. Of course, this may be a bit too much for smaller children but teenagers and adults will certainly love the thrill.

Whale’s tale relax
You may never have even heard of Kava or what you have heard has left you wondering what this drink really does. The truth is Kava is a drink that helps relieve pain, anxiety and stress to help you have overall well-being. It is a sedative drink that has been used for centuries to aid those that have trouble sleeping; however it can also be used just to relieve pain and stress.
On Schooner Island you will be offered a low tide kava, which is a half a bowl or a high tide, which is a full bowl. Most women prefer the low tide. Kava may not be to your liking taste-wise, but the effects and benefits are well worth at least a low tide.
When looking at day trips from Port Denarau we came across Whales Tail. This trip did not disappoint. From a great continental breakfast when boarding the boat, to the singing by the crew all the way to the island, beautiful lunch and guided snorkelling wereMrs Betts- TripAdvisor
I went here for a day with my family to an island to snorkel for the day. The service here is great! They have a very good crew, good food on board and good equipment for the snorkeling. I would definitely recommend, the captain even let us kids drive the boat!David Thorton
