Savala Island Day Cruise - Oolala Cruises


Sail over tranquil waters to the peaceful island haven that is Savala.

Enjoy a leisurely start to the day, departing Denarau Marina at 10am after the daily rush. Boarding the M.V. Oolala you’ll set sail across blue water for the outstanding picture postcard that is Savala Island. You’ll be in good hands during your hour and a half cruise with the experienced and entertaining crew providing activities and amusement for both children and adults while giving informative insights into island life.

After enjoying morning refreshments on your journey, you arrive at the sandy bay to soak up 4 hours of paradise. You’ll see a variety of bird and marine life during your time on the island. The Savala environment is pristine, with guests leaving only their footprints on the sandy shore.

Your day is then made up of a buffet lunch, snorkelling or kayaking amongst the bright coral reef, or relaxing under a shade hut. You can even take a ride on the glass bottom boat! The islanders will ensure everyone has a great day, with happy songs and that famous island hospitality.

You’ll then cruise back to Denarau Marina, arriving at 4.30pm.

    Slice of Paradise

    Awesome day trip. Small beautiful island with gorgeous clear waters. The crew are amazing who do all they can to make the trip enjoyable. The facilities on the island are very basic so don’t go if you’re expecting a 5 star resort.

    Baby Shark do do do do do do

    Savala Island is a beautiful place. It is surrounded by reef, so I would advise taking reef shoes. The baby reef sharks were the highlight of the day. The crew were lovely and very accommodating. No music was played however, and the trip back to the Denarau took 2hrs plus another hour in the bus back to the coral coast. It was a pleasant day.

    Awesome day out!

    Fabulous crew, snorkelling & overall day out for everyone. We all loved hanging out in the shallows with baby reef sharks. The only improvement needed is to better cater for vegans, or if this isn’t possible suggest they BYO. Lettuce, tomatoe, bread & fruit left us still quite hungry. But we still had a wonderful day out and will return.
