Let the Ra Marama lead you to paradise
Award winning Captain Cook Cruises (Fiji) managing director Semi Koroilavesau passionately smiles when he looks up to the tall ship as, it is commonly known among locals, and is proud of this vessel. The Ra Marama a local name meaning, "The Lady", has been around the waters of the Mamanuca and Yasawa groups hosting tourists from all over the world for the past 25 years.
Mr Koroilavesau has seen it all the developments from its very first day of its operations as a tourist vessel, challenges, good and perhaps some challenging days but he maintains the brigantine has done Captain Cook Cruises proud.
Today the Ra Marama is the favourite for the Day Cruise Tours in Fiji, based out of Port Denarau, Captain Cook Cruises best day cruise would most likely be the trip to Tivua Island which is a great sailing experience. Ra Marama is a historic brigantine rig tall ship built for the Governor -General of Fiji in 1957 and full restored in 1988 by Captain Cook Cruises.
The cruise to Tivua is a classic Fijian hideaway, a small coral cay ringed by white sandy beaches, it takes 10 minutes to walk around the island and good snorkelling. Maybe a barbecue lunch and good fun day with the local crew will rejuvenate your spirit. After a day of relaxing the highlight is the journey back with sails hoisted and the local crew strumming guitars as the mainland coastline comes into view. This is an experience that all should take up and see what it all means to have great fun.
Captain Cook Cruises operates three, four and seven-night accommodated cruises to Yasawa, north of Fiji Islands covering Levuka, Savusavu, Taveuni, Labasa, Kia, Rabi and Kioa to name a few with daily cruises to its own Captain Cooks Island. This includes dinner cruises and also caters for charters for functions ranging from private cruise charters to weddings, birthdays and anniversaries.
