Local Knowledge, Itinerary Planning & Pilotage

Cruising in Fiji waters is stunningly remote and beautiful, and it has given Carol the opportunity to experience many once-in-a-lifetime moments, however, its isolation and untouched beauty also means that it is one of the more difficult areas in the South Pacific.

There are areas which are still un-surveyed and navigational aids are often a non event! The rule of thumb is: do not expect a beacon to be in place even if it shown on the chart, nor assume a light to be working!

Carol’s itineraries to you will be tailored to suit your ships needs, and those of your guests. All factors are taken into account, and we will provide you with an itinerary detailed in all aspects of cruising and extra-curricular activities for guests as well as specific GPS plots for all diving, surfing and fishing, should you require.

Passage planning, charts and activities
