Perfectly suited for families, coup les and anyone with an adventurous sp irit, HI GH ASPECT is available in Fijian waters all year long; she also cruises Tahiti in the su mmer months. HIGH ASPECT is a classic sailing yacht. She is well suited for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. Her large cockpit has seating for up to eight guests. The swim platform, lowering from the lazerette, allows access for swimmers and snorkelers, and is an ideal spot for launching the four-meter tender or two-person kayak. HIGH ASPECT’s interior is outfitted in a traditional style with Fijian touches. The comfortable salon is the perfect place to relax and socialize. Four double cabins, two located aft and two located forward, all are spacious and have all the modern necessities. After a 2014 refit, HIGH ASPECT is in pristine condition and ready to take you on the adventure of a lifetime.

Day 1

Join the yacht and a short sail to Bounty or Treasure Island, small coral islands with stunning beaches and surrounded by exquisite reef, tropical Pacific islands at their best, then after lunch a late afternoon sail to Waya for the night.

Day 2

Venture out to Yolombi reef and snorkel this shallow pinnacle reef and watch the timid white tip sharks (and all the other fish) who live here year round. In the afternoon, sail to Fraser Bay. Maybe a run ashore to see the fire dancing at the boutique resort. Clients can be seen here celebrating.

Day 3

It is a must do to visit the gorgeous beach and swim and snorkel in the marine reserve park surrounding the bay to see the schools of Bumphead parrotfishes and turtles. After lunch a sail to Blue Lagoon with a chance to see spinner dolphins then maybe a late swim and anchor for the night.

Day 4

Breakfast under way en-route to Sawa-I-Lau caves, snorkel inside these magical caverns and then visit the village for Sevusevu, present the kava, and then join in with tribal dancing. Later move to Namataya Bay for the night.

Day 5

An exploration trip by tender to Vawa Island, uninhabited and with an extraordinary beach. This is the remotest area in the group, totally untouched. After lunch visit what is locally known as Paradise Bay and land on the small islet in the bay then sail down to the Blue Lagoon for the night.

Day 6

Almost a full day at Blue Lagoon surrounded by white palm fringed beaches and crystal water, corals in every direction and there is plenty to do and see here before jumping on the plane around 4PM to fly to the international airport. (Sea plane fare from the Yasawa group back to Nadi: $240/pax).

Add a day for a 6 night charter – Sail further up the coast to 99 Year Beach
– the softest sand ever in a beautiful bay, the clearest water and most pristine
beach that can be found, later set out for the Blue Lagoon.

Add another day for 7 night charter – Stop on the way back from north Yasawa Island at Malakati and go ashore to walk the finest beach in the area and meet the villagers and this is where snorkelling should be compulsory. Rich hard and soft coral reefs are host to a vast array of fish and stretch for miles along this coastline.

Day 1

Join the yacht at Port Denarau just fifteen minutes from Nadi Airport. A short sail to Malolo Island and enter this impressive lagoon to get right into what Fiji is all about. Virgin Cruising. Protected by a double fringing reef with a low tide sandbar it is your first experience of clear blue waters, tropical reefs and the calmness that pervades Fiji’s outer islands. Ashore there are a few restaurants and bars Fiji style.

Day 2

A morning sail to Nevadra Island, an uninhabited mini lagoon and on the way pass by Monriki Island where Tom Hanks made Cast Away and befriended ‘Wilson’ a volleyball. Rumour has it that Wilson is back on the island! At Nevadra walk on he sand bar at low tide and swim and snorkel in these really
clear waters.

Day 3

Just a hop over to Waya, the highest Island in the area and anchor off the small village, visit the chief for a traditional welcome. Some may want to walk up the hill for a stunning view of Kuata Island and the whole vista of Fiji in the distance.

Day 4

A move to Drawaqa Island where the islands, reefs and channels are home to a myraid of tropical fish and a family of manta rays, a highlight and unforgettable experience to snorkel with these inquisitive giants.The manta rays breed in one of the bays and feed daily in the channel, a drift
snorkel through the coral fields and schools of reef fish here is definitely something to be repeated many times.

Day 5

A morning’s sail and a good chance to see dolphins bow riding and often spinning. Anchor off Malakati Village in probably the most beautiful bay in the group. A visit to the village is a must as this is true island life, the beach is a must and the snorkelling should be compulsory. If there is anywhere in the world that is contrary to Western life this is it.

Day 6

A short trip to Sewa-i-Lau to visit the limestone caves. A group of three caves, the outer cave is easily accessible and must be swum in to, the inner cave often requires a short duckdive and is a highlight of the avid snorkeller. The nearby village provides guides to show you the cave markings and help through the maze of caverns along the coast of this small island.

Day 7

Move over to Nanuya, to the Blue Lagoon made famous by Brooke Shields in the 1980 film. shore in the tree line is a boutique hotel, one may dine here or just have a sundowner. Surrounded by white palm fringed beached and deep blue water is arguably the ultimate all weather anchorage. The Blue Lagoon is central to this stunning area and has dinghy trips in every direction. Fabulous.

Day 8

The winding Yaqueta Channel is over 2 miles long and lined with pristine corals hosting all manner of reef fish. Exploring this by dinghy and with mask and fins is unique, it feels like somehow this little corner of the World was left just for you to discover. Take the yellow canoe and just go xplore the bays and beaches.

Day 9

Down the coast of Naviti are dozens of untouched beaches and bays, pick any one for a stopover, a couple have small resorts nestled in the palms. Walk on the deserted beach or watch the sunset from the balcony bar. The coral gardens are all along the coast. The evenings are quiet and an occasional call from an island animal can be heard or the beat of a drum to signify the fare is ready.

Day 10

The floating day and it will surely be needed to stay just one more day in your favourite spot. For those wishing to stay as long as possible in the Yasawas, seaplanes are available to meet you just behind the yacht and transfer you directly to the airport at Nadi to meet a connecting flight. Otherwise most islands have helipads for transfers. You can even fly to many of the bays in the Yasawas and reverse the itinerary.

Day 11

Transit back to Port Denerau and time to buy a few local crafts at the extensive shopping parade before transfers to the airport.
