Highlights

  • Experience a traditional Fijian kava ceremony
  • Stunning views of the Sigatoka River and Valley
  • Learn the history of the local villages

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.

    "Amazing experience - a must-do while in Fiji"

    My husband and I did this day trip while in Fiji this week. We were based in Denerau and got picked up and transferred to Sigatoka. It was great to see a different part of Fiji not connected with Denerau - the "real Fiji". After signing in and collecting a sarong for myself (ladies are required to wear these in the local village" we boarded our jet boat for an awesome ride up the Sigatoka river. Captain Leps was very helpful, informative and entertaining. Happy to answer any questions that we had about the Fijian life. We arrived at our village and were welcomed by a traditional ceremony and had some kava. We then enjoed a lovely lunch - Fijian style - sitting on the floor. After lunch there was music and we danced with the locals. It was a wonderful experience and we felt very privelged to be sharing some time with the locals. We then left the village and proceeded back up the river to the jetty. Along the way Captain Leps did five 260 degrees spins in the boat which was awesome. We had our photos taken and were able to purchase these as a momento of the day. We then stopped back at Sigatoka Town to purchase some souvenirs. A wonderful day and truly a highlight of our Fijian holiday. I strongly recommend that you do this trip - it was awesome!!
