The multi award winning Sigatoka River Safari takes you away from the crowds and deep into the heart and soul of Fiji allowing you to immerse yourself in the culture, history and customs of this unique slice of paradise.

Highlights

  • Experience a traditional Fijian kava ceremony
  • Stunning views of the Sigatoka River and Valley
  • Learn the history of the local villages
  • Enjoy a tropical Fijian lunch in village

Discover the natural beauty of the awe inspiring Sigatoka River on an exciting jet boat adventure!

Your journey begins when we pick you up from your resort and transfer you to our base in Sigatoka town – a bustling village near the mouth of the large Sigatoka River.

Step aboard our comfortable boat and soak up the scenery as you experience a scenic cruise into the beautiful Sigatoka Valley. Enjoy views of Fiji’s famous ‘Salad Bowl’ – Named for its colourful patchwork of fruit and vegetable crops.

Upon arrival at our departure point, your hosts will provide you with life jackets and a safety briefing before you board the jet boat – This is where the fun really begins!

Hear about the fascinating history of this magical region (including its cannibal past!) as we journey up the vast Sigatoka River. Wave to the children from the many villages along our route and don’t forget to look to the crystal clear waters below that are teeming with many species of fish.

The highlight of your journey will be when we stop at a remote local village and experience a traditional Fijian kava ceremony and are given a warm welcome by the locals.

Take a tour of the village, enjoy a delicious Fijian lunch and experience traditional Fijian singing and dancing before boarding the boat for the return journey.

Sigatoka River Safari's visit a different village each day to minimise the impact of tourism on the village lifestyle in this remote part of the world.

    Life time Memory.

    Was the most amazing day,life time memory,and to be chosen to be chief was very special,if you want a Fiji Cultural experience this is the trip for you,to exchange kava with the village chief and to dance and sing with the village was something I will never forget and our guide Tia was outstanding her knowledge of Fijian History was unreal and can drive a jet boat and Captain Ace the way he presented the ceremony and his translation of Fijian to English so we understood the process of the day was very professional,a fantastic 5 star day my wife and I will remember for ever thank you Tia and Captain Ace.

    Great experience, knowledgeable local staff

    From Joe, our driver, to “ace”, our tour leader and boat driver, the staff was real good. Visiting a local village, one of seventeen that they alternate going to that are very remote, small, and authentic was a treasure. The villagers were very friendly, fun, and welcoming. The lunch the villagers made for us was delicious, varied, fresh, and local. The village we visited does not have electricity, hard to imagine in this day and age. The village children were typical of kids anywhere, happy, playful, inquisitive, and beautiful. Be prepared by bringing along small gifts of gratitude for the village. I brought a solar powered led camping light, a couple led flashlights and spare batteries. You will enjoy this.

    Great day

    We were amazed by this tour and if we could give more than 5 stars we would. From the start we knew we were in safe hands as we set off on on the jet boat. Fabulous Freddy sure lived up to his name making sure we had a fabulous experience. We enjoyed our visit to the local village where lunch was great and authentic experience. Thank you for the great day and if we had time would do again this trip. Thank you for the great day!

    Awesome day

    Got picked up by the awesome GI Joe early from my airport hotel. When we got to Sigatoka was introduced to our driver for the day Captain Jack. He had many an interesting tale to tell and had a great sense of humor. We were treated to a amazing lunch which was prepared for us by the women of the village we visited. The villagers including the children were so hospitable, the whole experience was very humbling. The scenery was more majestic than any photo the jet boat ride was sooooo much fun. GI Joe remembered all our names when we got on the bus to be taken back to our hotels he was amazing. Definitely A BIG RECOMMENDATION from me. BULA Vinaka
