We have an early start to the day in order to meet our boat transfer at 8:30am. After an early light breakfast at the hotel we have a transfer to the Denarau marina and are transported by high speed catamaran to Tavewa Island and the Blue Lagoon in the Yasawa Island Chain, approximately 72kms from mainland Fiji. Several stops may be made along the way as the catamaran also services many island resorts and we arrive at approximately 1:30pm. It is a good idea to bring some snacks and reading material for the boat trip. The combination of reefs, close island grouping, and shallow waters create the stunning aqua colours for which this area is famous. On arrival at Tavewa Island, our Fijian hosts will make us comfortable at their island home, providing a dining bure (hut) and grassy campsite. After adjusting our kayaks and getting acquainted with our expedition gear there will be an orientation paddling session and snorkel in the lagoon. Watching the sunset from the beach in front of our tents is a great way to end the day followed by a wholesome tropical dinner.
