Savala Island Day Cruise - Oolala Cruises

Sail to the peaceful island haven that is Savala on a boutique cruise experience away from the crowds. Enjoy lunch, complimentary drinks, watersports, wildlife and a glass bottom boat ride on this memorable trip brought to you by Oolala Cruises.


Sail over tranquil waters to the peaceful island haven that is Savala.

Enjoy a leisurely start to the day, departing Denarau Marina at 10am after the daily rush. Boarding the M.V. Oolala you’ll set sail across blue water for the outstanding picture postcard that is Savala Island. You’ll be in good hands during your hour and a half cruise with the experienced and entertaining crew providing activities and amusement for both children and adults while giving informative insights into island life.

After enjoying morning refreshments on your journey, you arrive at the sandy bay to soak up 4 hours of paradise. You’ll see a variety of bird and marine life during your time on the island. The Savala environment is pristine, with guests leaving only their footprints on the sandy shore.

Your day is then made up of a buffet lunch, snorkelling or kayaking amongst the bright coral reef, or relaxing under a shade hut. You can even take a ride on the glass bottom boat! The islanders will ensure everyone has a great day, with happy songs and that famous island hospitality.

    What a wonderful day

    Had an amazing time on the Oolala! Staff was top notch! Playing guitar, singing, bringing around snacks and getting us drinks on the way. The snorkeling was amazing! Reefs were quite shallow in a lot of places so you could literally float right on top of the beautiful fish! Lunch was adequate. The weather was icky and windy and it even rained but I would ABSOLUTELY do it again!! Thanks Oolala

    Awesome day trip

    Great day out. Picked up on time, boat transfers across and back were long but helped with the crew singing. Cake and drinks also on the boat. The island is beautiful. Although they did run out of wine and beer it on the island it was still available on the boat when we got back on. BBQ was great with plenty to eat. Highly recommend it

    Savala island

    We only rated it a 5 because there was no 6. We were a group of 6 with one couple in their mid 70 's. Great food, excelent crew, could not fault the day. Sebastian (Booboo) and the rest of the crew are awesome the service Bula smiles and singing made the day. We will be going again before we we go home. Vinaka team.

    Slice of Paradise

    Awesome day trip. Small beautiful island with gorgeous clear waters. The crew are amazing who do all they can to make the trip enjoyable. The facilities on the island are very basic so don’t go if you’re expecting a 5 star resort.
