Captain Cook Cruises: Tivua Island Day Cruise

We were in Denarau over the weekend, and we tried the Tivua Island Day Cruise by Captain Cook Cruises. The local special was only $99 FJD per person--an excellent deal.

We chose Fiji Beachouse for a Memorial Day weekend getaway because it's one of the handful of hotels… Continue reading Fiji Beachouse
