About The Adventure

Join Women Embrace Adventure and experience a tropical kayak adventure with spectacular sunsets, limestone caves, and white sandy beaches fringed with swaying coconut palms; spend two nights as honoured guests in a traditional Fijian village and finish off with three nights at an island resort swimming with the Fiji Mantas.

Kayak Fiji! We begin this spectacular Fiji sea kayaking vacation in the Yasawa Islands with a boat transfer from Nadi to our base in the Blue Lagoon. Dream of tropical islands and spectacular snorkelling as we paddle a loop among the four northernmost Islands in the chain.

Fiji is an archipelago of 330 islands with a coastline of over 1129 kilometres; the perfect island paradise for a sea kayak trip! The Yasawa group is a chain of 16 islands located northwest of Fiji's main island, Viti Levu. We spend our time in the Yasawas kayaking between islands, visiting isolated beaches, snorkelling the coral reefs and staying in a small native village getting to know the friendly locals. This is a trip that will appeal to all your senses, giving you a well-earned break from modern living.

Today we paddle approx 15km to Navotua village. With favourable tides, we'll have lunch where fringing reefs run directly off the beach.

Today's paddle is approx 6-8 kms to Sawa-I-Lau, a scenic island with sharp limestone peaks and salt-water caves that make for fascinating exploring.

From April - October Fiji Manta Rays feed in a narrow nutrient-rich channel of water between Drawaqua Island (Barefoot Manta Island Resort Fiji's location) and Naviti Island. With all things in nature, there are no guarantees we will see the rays, but Manta Rays are usually there every day during the season.
