Amazing Water Adventures at Laucala Island, Fiji
August 19, 2014
Whether interested in a peaceful sail across Fiji's azure oceans or a thrilling deep sea dive alongside pristine coral reefs, Laucala Island Resort offers water adventures for everyone; activities include sailing, kite-surfing, paddle-boarding, wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, windsurfing, game fishing, dragon boating, diving, snorkeling, jet-skiing, and just recently a submersible experience, exclusive to the resort.
Discover Fiji by Boat
There is no better way to explore the island than by boat. Guests may toast on a luxurious sunset cruise, speed around the archipelago on a jet ski, or coast through the open water on one of the resort's many sailboats. The Water Sports Center at Laucala Island Resort boasts a fleet of 14 boats for guest use, all of which cater to different on-the-water occasions and preferences. Some boats include: the Rere Ahi (literally meaning “flying fire”), a double-masted sailing boat with a rich history; the Amanda, one of the first New Zealand-built Dragon keelboats; and The Riviera Open Flybridge, a modern yacht ideal for both afternoon boating and competitive game fishing.
Exploring the Beautiful Depths of the South Pacific
The alluring and azure Fijian waters invite guests to explore the bustling life living below its sparkling surface. Laucala's Dive Center is well equipped with PADI accredited diving courses to provide island-goers with an unforgettable diving experience. Offerings include open water and advanced courses, night diving, shore dives, underwater photography, wreck diving and dive master training. Dive locations at Laucala Island range from shallow lagoon experiences nearby the resort to the acclaimed Great White Wall, located 40 minutes away from Laucala Island.
Guests can now discover the exhilarating waters of the South Pacific Ocean without getting wet with the new submersible experience (arrived July 1). Shallow lagoons, colorful reefs and tropical fish, such as coral trout, angelfish, lionfish, and octopus, surround Laucala Island making for an unparalleled underwater adventure in the Hawkes Ocean Technologies' submersible. Unlike conventional submersibles that sink, the Super Falcon enables guests to “fly in the ocean” with unprecedented speed, range and agility.
Once owned by the Forbes family as a private island escape, Laucala Island was purchased in 2002 by Dietrich Mateschitz, C.E.O. of Red Bull drink company, and launched in 2008 as a private island resort. Amidst dramatic rainforest-laced landscapes and coconut plantations, the resort is 80 percent self-sustainable and prides itself on an integral philosophy, incorporating elements of the entire island into each guest's experience, from island-made spa products to cuisine derived from indigenous plants, fruit and aquatic life. Red Bull, the drink of adventure, has surely inspired the plethora of water adventure activities offered at Laucala Island.
