Tourism industry folk were treated to a night at Port Denarau Marina as Fiji showcased the growing marine tourism industry as part of the 3-day Fijian Tourism Expo 2014.
Tourism providers have been meeting with wholesalers and like-minded people to promote the wide range of accommodation, transport and activity options Fiji has to offer the many visitors making their way to our shores.
As Fiji Rum Co. ‘Mixologists’ created cocktails to die for, the marina was a hive of activity as people mingled together and boarded the numerous vessels that were tied up alongside the jetty. From luxury private charter vessels to day charter boats, water taxis and activity providers, there was even a mock hens party in full swing on-board one of the vessels demonstrating the creative options available to visitors wishing to merge conventional experiences with a cruise of the islands.
Port Denarau Marina CEO Mr Nigel Skeggs said of the event “We were really proud to showcase the diversity of the marine tourism industry operating out of Port Denarau Marina at this purely Fijian event.
“Local domestic charter vessels enjoy excellent access to the myriad of islands in the Fiji group, and with the new super yacht decree, chartering a super yacht out of Port Denarau Marina has been made possible and we expect to see many more during the coming year”.
There has been a sharp increase in the number of charter yachts available in Fiji, luxury private boutique charters to suit your schedule, to group day charters around the islands. It is clear that the marine industry in Fiji is growing and adapting to the needs of the market.
Chartering a yacht is a wonderful way to experience the islands of Fiji; weaving through the 300 plus islands, sand banks and atolls, pausing to surf, dive, snorkel or visit local villages and attractions at your leisure.
As skilled chefs cook up a storm in the galley, freshly baked pastries and brewed coffee await as you return from a snorkel on one of Fiji’s many magnificent coral reefs. Be gently rocked to sleep by the calm movement of the tropical Pacific Ocean in a comfortable private suite, or even on deck under the spectacular southern hemisphere’s night sky.
Experience your holiday, your way – it’s your Fiji.
