Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive at the Kadavu airport and board a motor boat shuttle for a 45 minute ride to our evening accommodations at Papageno Resort. If time allows we can outfit you in kayak and paddling equipment for an afternoon journey. Dinner and welcome celebration cap off your first day in paradise.

Day 2: We paddle along the north shore of Kadavu exploring small coastal villages and wild, lush uninhabited shoreline.

Day 3: We say goodbye to Papageno and head further east to resume our paddle toward uninhabited Akea Beach for a stop, snorkel and swim. Refreshed and back in the kayaks we continue east past a deep bay toward Tiliva our accommodations for the next 2 nights.

Day 4: We set our sights on Kadavu’s smaller neighbor island Ono and our longest paddle day. The goal if weather and sea allows is to circumnavigate Ono a 20 mile journey. Coming full circle we return to Tiliva for our second night.

Day 5: Heading south now on the east shore of Kadavu we paddle past several long sandy beaches to Matava resort our home for the final 3 nights. Located on the south shore Matava resort offers amazing access to Fiji’s wonders.

Day 6: Today is filled with options those who wish can return to Vacalea village by kayak for more in depth exploration and discovery. Matava Resort offers reef diving and snorkeling excursions, bamboo spa, surfing or world class birding and wildlife excursions.

Day 7: Back in the kayaks we head west exploring the shoreline toward Nacomoto and several sandy beaches and small fishing villages. Motor boat returns us to the Matava resort for a final celebration dinner.

Day 8: Optional sunrise paddle or yoga session to start the day. Transfers via motor boat to the airport will be coordinated with outbound departure schedules.
