Make your own way to Matei Airport, Taveuni. A driver will be there to meet you at 9:00 am and provide transfer to the Tui Laucala's boat to go fishing for Yellow fin tuna around the Laucala Reef in the magical destination of Fiji.
This is spectacular area of the world. The area is rarely visited and only under the consent of the Chief, can boats be fishing. The waters are teeming with Tuna, Spanish Mackerel, and various other big fish. The Laucala Reef extends around the Islands of Qamea, Matagi and Laucala for a distance of about 20km. The trip will be trawling around the entire length of this reef. View of remote tropical mountainous terrain are like no other, and the reefs below are untouched. An optional snorkel stop at one of the locals secret spots is recommended (some snorkels and fins can be provided upon request). We will prepare a delicious meal with the fresh fish we catch.
But...before boarding the boat, you will be invited make a sevusevu (Fijian offering of kava roots) to the Tui Laucala, in the traditional Fijian way. The Chief, or one of his sons, will then recieve the sevusevu and offer his blessing and thus, guests will be under the chiefs protection within the fishing district of Laucala.
With all the local formalities attended to, the boat is launched, and the fun begins!
Please bring sun screen, hats, towel, swimsuits. Lunch and drinks will be provided. Return transfer is provided also. Expect to be back at about mid afternoon.
**Please note that the private island is also available to rent through our partners at Airbnb.
