What Our Guests Say

Not just a hype! Find out why we are TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice 2023.

Big Blue Fiji was fantastic in every way. From the moment our group of eight stepped on board we felt welcomed and at ease to make it home for the next week. Laura was incredible with all the details and catering to our groups specific dietary needs (gfree, lactose, and vegetarian). The food was delicious, and I was in heaven that I could eat without worry as someone with celiac disease. Joe is the best dive master anyone could have teach them how to dive, his vast knowledge and easy underwater is incredible. The rest of the crew (Nox & Jerry) were flawless in the daily tasks of insuring we were all taken care of safely and comfortably on our adventures...

BritThey made my vacation priceless!

I cannot say enough good things about sailing and staying with Laura and Joe (and their awesome crew). We were on the boat for 8 nights, in the Mamanucas and the Yasawas. We truly did not have a single care for our entire trip. My wife and kids have Celiac Disease, and traveling often requires compromises and lots of interrogating waitstaff, hosts and cooks. Laura handled it all perfectly. Joe has a decade of experience as a senior divemaster in this region, and diving with him was such a treat. What could be better than having your own divemaster who travels with you? He even helped our 12-year olds get open-water certified...

The Andelman FamilySuch an amazing experience. Simply incredible.

What a trip! Total luxury from booking through service from start to end, we had the time of our lives on a spectacular 7-day trip Fiji sailing holiday with Laura and Joe on Big Blue. The Cat has everything you could wish for all perfectly clean and in excellent working order, we were very spoilt. The food throughout our trip was delicious, nutritious and always just seem to appear with no fuss or occasion, so beautifully presented. We went fishing, diving, snorkelling, swimming to islands, paddle-boarding, wake boarding, you name it we did it, and all with the most lovely smiles and calm professionalism from Laura, Joe and the crew...

KatieAwesome 5 star sailing, second to none!

We have been to Yasawa Islands numerous times and stayed in the best resorts, but this topped any previous trip. The incredible experience and knowledge the owners and staff is what makes this luxury Fiji yacht charter the best going around. It really was the perfect adventure getaway with the most talented and professional hosts. The boat was in pristine condition, so luxurious and comfortable...

VictoriaThe most amazing Fiji holiday yet!

Joe and Laura were incredible hosts on their gorgeous, spacious boat. If you want, they will curate the perfect experience for you, but you are also free to do whatever you want every day (and the options are endless!) See an island that you want to check out? Just point it out and away we go! The answer to any question is “absolutely!”...

CleoNever wanted to leave!

Thank you, Big Blue, for an amazing 5 days, full of warmth, hospitality and adventure. The boat is awesome - roomy, comfortable and well-appointed. Joe and Laura are fine hosts and very accommodating. Food was delightfully prepared and excellent! Over the course of our trip we hiked, fished, swam in caves, snorkelled, went diving (some for the first time!) with turtles and ended our trip with an awesome beach bonfire. A totally unique and memorable experience!

MandyAmazing Yasawa adventure!

I've been to Fiji with the family twice before but this 7-night Fiji yacht charter was in a different league, me and the wife are now qualified divers and I also did my freediving course, we ticked lots off our bucket list that's for sure! Crew and boat were great and the food was 5 star. Thank Big Blue

ConBest trip ever!

We found Big Blue last minute and by chance, the team were awesome and able to cater for our needs creating a very memorable experience! We went to Fiji and wanted to dive we were not disappointed, the crew know their spots and worked with our experience level.

SamEpic!

Absolutely love this place. Awesome people and amazing activities for all ages and experience levels. Bunch of legends!

MattDive heaven!

We recently spent a couple of nights out on Big Blue with friends, in hindsight we wish we'd spent longer. The crew were like family, combined with the food, the drink, the accommodation, the weather, the Big Blue vibe made the experience unforgettable. There's nothing more refreshing than jumping into the turquoise sea each morning before breakfast! The snorkelling sites they took us too were better than what I've experienced across Asia, the Caribbean or the Barrier Reef, it was breathtaking.

IanThe must do Fijian experience!

What is the best time of year to sail in Fiji?

We operate all year long, but the best time to sail in Fiji is during the dry season, from May to October. During these months, you’ll experience warm, sunny weather and calm seas, perfect for sailing and exploring the islands. You can still sail between November and April as lush landscapes and vibrant coral reefs thrive during the rainy season, however, expect occasional showers, with slightly higher humidity. But really, the choice is ultimately yours! No matter the season, Fiji is a paradise waiting to be explored.
