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
