It was through friends recommendations that I decided to book the trip for my whole family. It was my daughter's first speed boat experience and she still remembers Captain Jay's hand signals for the 360 degree spin "alerts"............lol. We all had a watersplashlious time. Captain Jay.............hats off to you for taking good care of us and to ensure we all were breathing and intact in the boat after the spins :-) . I would recommend this trip to families with kids to try and have this experience of a lifetime.

It was by chance that I was able to book the jet boat ride along the Sigatoka river. I will say it was difficult to book as I called them few times on number provided on their Facebook page but was no response. Thankfully I emailed them and got a reply the next day. And they were very accommodating to change my booking from 2 adults to 4 straight away. Whatever expectations I had of this jet ride was nothing compared to the thrill I actually experienced. We had Captain Jay give us a warm welcome and provide real good commentary and he had a great sense of humour. The spins on the jet ride were super. Being splashed on with that unexpected turns. I want to do this again soon! And they also took some great pictures with no pressure of actual purchase. We bought some anyway. 10/10 would recommend. Please just take your towel and change of clothes. If you aren’t drenched by the time you come out, you haven’t had the real experience!!!

Bus driver GI Joe picked us up at our lodging and drove us to the store to pick up the ladies sarongs for wear to the village. Then on to the river, where we met our boat driver, Capt Leps ( a great river navigator). We traveled to the village and presented the chief with a gift of Kava and joined the villagers in a drink (or two) of kava. Then danced and had a lovely meal provided by the village.

We were collected from our hotel (and returned!) for the 20 minute-ish journey to the shop by the river the company operate from. Retail therapy was available before boarding the boats. Sorry I have no idea what type of boat, but it went very fast. Actually, that was my one bugbear. The other passengers were speed freaks, with apparently little interest in the scenery and/or bird/animal life we were passing at a rate of knots. They preferred to squint against against the oncoming force 8. I've decided I must be getting very (I'm female) Victoria Meldrew. Fortunately once my eyes and brain had adjusted to rapid motion, I could appreciate my surroundings, i got the impression that it was worth seeing at a more sedate pace. The next part of the trip, wasn't something I was looking forward to (what a moaner). We were to visit a typical Fijian village for, I guessed a cultural experience and lunch. I was expecting an embarrassing display of an imagined Fijian life in the late 19th century or so, a representation so familiar to the 'village people' that they had it off pat. HOW WRONG I WAS. These villagers were friendly, and had dignity and pride in their village and way of life. That way of life was simple In terms of 'stuff,' but complex in terms of the group dynamics. I got the impression that the Chief and his (of course) skill set as a leader, set the standard for the success of the group.I'm sure anthropologists would have a field day here. We entered the communal long house and all were presented with a bowl of the local 'drink'. We'd been warned it was not something to savour. I can't say anything about the taste. Over the years I've developed the trick of pouring something straight to the back of my throat eg toasts of firewater, moonshine, grappa. This is too long a review. To summarise, we took a tour of the village, inc. Chief's house (lots of beds, women/children?) To longhouse for an interesting lunch, lots of dancing, drums, singing, back to boat. Were offered slower trip back. Didn't happen. Got wet due to acrobatics with boat. Loved the tour, village was best. Apparently the tour visits different villages to avoid Disneyfication.
