Travel aboard the legendary #yasawaflyer

Awesome Adventures Fiji offer fast vessel transfers to Yasawa & Mamanuca Island resorts for travellers staying in the islands.

Our island resort connections are included in all our experiences, but you can book stand-alone island resort connections with us too. We offer the only big-vessel transfer service to Yasawa Island resorts.

Our transfers must be some of the most scenic in the world

How does it work?

Our rather legendary catamaran, the Yasawa Flyer, departs Port Denarau at 8:30am every morning to island hop between the tiny Mamanuca Island resorts of South Sea Island, Beachcomber and Treasure Islands, en-route to their majestic neighbours, the Yasawas. The journey up through the Yasawas is magical: the Flyer stops along the way in the most scenic channels and bays, picking-up and dropping-off tourists who are moving on to their next slice of paradise. The northern most stop is the famous Blue Lagoon, and from there, the Flyer heads back south, stopping off at all the islands again before arriving back at Port Denarau at 5:45pm.

For more information on how it all works, visit our 'Transfers FAQs'.

At each stop resort tenders (small motorised boats) whizz out to meet the Flyer to transfer guests to/from the resorts!

The Yasawa Flyer

The Yasawa Flyer is a large high speed, modern catamaran with air conditioned seating, a travel desk, licensed bar, café and outdoor viewing decks. She is the most popular way for tourists to get to the Yasawa Islands. We also occasionally use vessels owned by our sister company, South Sea Cruises. They have a fleet of fast, modern vessels, specifically designed for cruising the Fiji Islands.

Conditions of Carriage

Awesome Adventures Fiji endeavours to ensure all vessels operate on time but the company cannot be held liable for any missed connections with flights due to late arrival at Nadi International Airport check in counter. It is recommended that passengers have travel insurance to cover this.

All passengers MUST confirm departure times with reservations at least 24 hours prior to departure.

Some resorts charge a water taxi fare to collect you from the Yasawa Flyer. Please ask when booking your accommodation, or ask at the Travel Desk onboard the Yasawa Flyer. Those passengers booked on an Awesome Adventures Fiji package (for example 'Coconut Cruiser', 'Twin Island Time Out' or 'Island Escape') do not pay for any additional transfer costs.
