FUEL SURCHARGE APPLICABLE FOR TRAVEL FROM 06 JUNE 2022
Updated & Re-issued – 1st of September 2022
After six months of continuous fuel increases across Fiji including a record high in August 2022, the retail price of diesel fuel has finally seen a reduction as of the 1st of September 2022. The retail price of diesel fuel in Fiji now being $3.09 per litre. Whilst this relief in retail fuel prices is welcome, the price of diesel fuel in Fiji as of the 1st of September 2022 remains 56% higher than compared to when our current rates were set and issued mid-last year. As a result of these record high fuel prices, selected South Sea Cruises services and products remain subject to the fuel surcharges stated below as of the 1st of September 2022:
The fuel surcharge(s) implemented in June 2022, and which remains applicable from the 1st of September 2022 and until further notice are:
Customers travelling with us from Port Denarau will be asked to pay the applicable fuel surcharge for all future sectors booked whilst at check-in.
In implementing the fuel surcharge, we’d like to thank our customers for their understanding of our need to recover a percentage of these unprecedented fuel costs. We also ask that our Terms & Conditions are noted as follows “South Sea Cruises reserves the right to alter prices, apply a fuel surcharge, cancel departures, arrange alternative transport, and vary itineraries and services if necessary.”
For those customers that aren’t aware, the retail price of fuel in Fiji is set by the Fijian Competition & Consumer Commission (FCCC) and is amended on the first day of each month. The price set is based on a range of factors globally but most noticeably by movement in the Means of Platts Singapore (MOPS) market, international freight rates and foreign exchange rates. South Sea Cruises remains committed to reviewing the fuel surcharge each month and will do so again on the 30th of September 2022 once the retail price of fuel to take effect as of the 1st of October 2022 is announced.

How it works
The Yasawa Flyer which is one of our sister company South Sea Cruises' fleet of high-speed catamarans departs Port Denarau at 8.45 am to island-hop out through the Mamanuca Islands to their majestic neighbours, the Yasawa Islands. The Yasawa Flyer stops off along the way in the most scenic channels and bays, picking up and dropping off travellers at tropical island resorts with tenders (small motorised boats) motoring out to meet the Yasawa Flyer to transfer guests to/from the resorts! The northernmost stop is the famous Blue Lagoon, and from there, we head south again, arriving back at Port Denarau at 6.00 pm.
Included in the price are pre-booked complimentary coach transfers from most Nadi, Wailoaloa, and Denarau hotels to/from Port Denarau.
