International flights land in Nadi on Viti Levu. Most charter boats are located nearby in Port Denarau (20-minute drive) or Vuda Marina (40-minute drive). Both marinas offer yacht repair and supplies. Many yachts take advantage of nearby beaches, world-class diving and surfing opportunities. § At Port Denarau, I called on Yacht Help Fiji (yachthelp.com). Eli Lagivala, a Yacht Help Fiji senior consultant, conveyed great news: The remote and traditional Southern Lau group of islands had recently been opened for cruisers to visit. § Currently, there are no bareboat charters available in Fiji. Yacht Help Fiji offers everything, from customs clearance to repairs and even cruising yacht
brokerage. Fiji’s skippered charter yachts, including Stellar, are listed on the company’s website.
